Let’s Finish Lynas Off!



For over two years we have fought tirelessly to Stop Lynas. We have crossed many milestones and Lynas is now fighting its own battle to survive even though the Lynas plant is still in Gebeng. Let us KEEP UP our spirit to save our future!

Lynas – An Investment NightmareLynas’ share value has been hovering between A38c to A45c as compared to its peak value of A$2.30 in early 2011 – clearly the market has lost confidence in Lynas. Recently Lynas sold its first batch of rare earths at a huge loss for a paltry A$5/kg against a high production costs of almost A$20/kg! Besides, it only managed to sell 117 tonnes of refined rare earth oxide, a long way short of its highly publicised first phase target of 11,000 tonnes. Lynas finally conceded there have been equipment problems and processing times that were longer than expected. The Deutsche Bank again issued a “SELL” advice on ground that Lynas is facing possible capital issues casting doubt on its ability to repay one of its debt facilities.

To top it up, Lynas has withdrawn its defamation suit against Save Malaysia Stop Lynas (SMSL). SMSL has advocated based on evidence and credible scientific and engineering assessment of the Lynas project. We have consulted with highly qualified independent experts from different fields. Our claims are backed up with facts and science. We will continue to fight until we have exhausted every available legal avenue here and in Australia. We will campaign so that no reputable potential buyers will touch Lynas’ products for fear of a backlash from green consumers who expect a very high standard of environmental safeguards and social responsibility.

No Safe Solution for Radioactive Waste and PollutionUntil today, Lynas has yet to find a safe permanent solution for its radioactive waste even though the licensing condition has set a July 2013 deadline. It is still operating under a temporary licence. By right the government should have suspended Lynas’ licence. Many of Lynas’ pollution, occupational health and safety risks and hazards identified by our experts have yet to be resolved. As Lynas pays no taxes to Malaysia, the government will end up having to resort to public fund to tackle any major disaster, long-term pollution and hazards from Lynas. In the end we the local residents and Malaysian public will be left to deal with Lynas’ mishaps and its toxic waste.

To keep our country safe and clean, we must not tolerate a hazardous project like the Lynas’ rare earth refinery plant to risk our environment, our health and our investment. The Stop Lynas campaign has gained momentum to become Malaysia’s biggest ever environmental campaign. The people in Kuantan and surrounding area delivered a convincing win to several MPs and ADUNs on the Stop Lynas election platform. We have paved the way to hold the government more accountable and transparent. We have to keep this momentum UP by making sure our elected Federal and State representatives do their job to stop Lynas!

Stop Lynas Campaign now Known Worldwide - FIGHT TILL THE ENDOur opposition to the Lynas plant is now known all over the world. There is now renewed interest from overseas on the issue and we are getting more overseas supporters. We have to show the government, Lynas and the world that we are determined to fight till the end to for a safer and cleaner future and that our campaign is moving from strength to strength. We have to show any potential buyer and investors that the Lynas plant is a liability and a high risk investment because of its poor plant construction, poor waste and pollution management plan as well as the strong and sustained public opposition to the plant.


Play your part to Stop Lynas - Act Now!
Mari Sama-Sama Membenam LYNAS ! Lebih dua tahun kita bermati-matian melawan Lynas . Kita telah bertemu dengan berbagai-bagai halangan dan kerenah . Malangnya Lynas masih kekal di Gebeng . Namun marilah kita terus melawan dengan penuh semangat untuk kepentingan masa depan generasi kita !

Lynas – Satu Mimpi Ngeri. Saham Lynas kini merudum di antara AU$0.38 ke AU$0.45 seunit berbanding dengan masa kemuncaknya AU$ 2.30 seunit awal tahun 2011 .Jelas di sini pembeli mula mencurigai Lynas . Baru-baru ini Lynas menjual nadir bumi dengan kerugian sebanyak A$5/kg berbanding kos pengeluaran sebanyak A$20/kg. Di samping itu Lynas hanya mampu menjual 117 metrik ton nadir bumi yang diproses, jauh kekurangan daripada 11, 000 metrik ton yang dianggarkan. Dalam kenyatan akhbar akhir-akhir ini Lynas telah mengaku mereka mengalami masalah peralatan menyebabkan tempoh pemprosesan lebih lama dari yang dijangka . Lynas sebenarnya kini menghadapi masalah kekurangan modal untuk menjelaskan hutangnya.
Lynas telah menarik balik saman fitnahnya terhadap Save Malaysia Stop Lynas ( SMSL ) untuk mengurangkan kos . SMSL telah mendapatkan khidmat pakar bebas dalam berbagai bidang , fakta , kejuruteraan dan sains dalam membuat justifikasi tentang permasalahan Lynas . Kita akan terus berjuang dari berbagai sudut termasuklah tindakan undang-undang di Australia .

Tidak Ada Penyelesaian Kepada Bahan Radioaktif Dan Pencemaran . Kini Lynas gagal mengemukakan penyelesaian tentang sisa radioaktif yang dihasilkannya walau pun tarikh akhirnya Julai 2013 sudah berlalu! Jadi , kempen anti Lynas mesti diteruskan . Ia perlu melibatkan semua Ahli Parlimen dan ADUN yang kita pilih di Pahang khususnya Kuantan .

LAWAN TERUS SAMPAI KE PENGHUJUNG Penentangan kita terhadap Lynas tersebar keseluruh dunia ! Kita perlu terus berjuang hingga Berjaya!

Mainkan Peranan Anda Untuk Hentikan Lynas – Bertindak Sekarang!

投资者的噩梦-莱纳斯在过去的几个月,莱纳斯的股价游走在A$0.45 与0.38之间,而在2011 年初(在我们还未推动抗争运动前),它的每股价格是A$2.30,这正反映了市场对它的投资信心!上个月莱纳斯以每公斤A$5.00,卖出了117 屯的稀土元素与市场买者,然而它每公斤的生产成本却是A$20.00!这离它原定每年生产11,000 屯的目标,差距实在是太大了!在莱纳斯最近的文告,它终于承认它正面对各种生产的拖延及设备的问题! 德国的Bankagain机构发出‘售出’的忠告与它的投资者。 它认为莱纳斯可能面对资金短缺及赏还债务的能力。

除此之外, 莱纳斯最近也终止了它对拯救大马的诽谤诉讼。拯救大马一路来都以确凿及可信赖的科学及科技论述,针对莱纳斯稀土厂可能面对的工程及其他事项做出中肯及符合专家评估的批评。我们将继续通过在本地及澳洲的司法及所有合法的途径,推动终止莱纳斯运动,直到它撤出为止!我们也要让有意接手这间稀土厂的买家知道,我们会与所有推动绿色运动的盟友结合,确保环境与社会责任,获得它应有的关注!

迄今莱纳斯尚未提出完善的废料及污染的解决方案今年的7月是莱纳斯获得临时营运执照的第10个月。按照执照的明文规定它必须在这期限届满前,提出永久储藏具放射性的固体废料。迄今它仍然未提呈永久埋毒槽地点,照道理,政府有关当局应当撤回它的临时营运执照!在我们聘请的专家报告里头所提及的有关作业安全与可能面对的健康风险,至今尚未获得应有的解决方案。

莱纳斯获得我国政府豁免盈利税长达12年。一旦发生意外或泄漏,政府将被逼利用公众缴纳的税金,来做善后工作,亦如当地的居民将面对处理莱纳斯可能遗留下来的任何“手尾”,包括意外所造成的损失及有毒的废料!

如果要确保我们能继续生活在干净和安全的环境,我们绝对不能允许如莱纳斯的稀土厂在我们居住的周边建立!终止莱纳斯运动是我国有史以来最大的公民社会运动!居住于关丹的居民,在刚过去的第13届大选,利用了手中的一票,一举击败了支持此毒厂的所有州与国会的国阵候选人!我们开启了要政府对人民更透明及问责的风气。这只是个开始,我们有必要监督被选出来的人民代议士,尽忠职守!

终止莱纳斯运动获得了世界的关注-让我们奋斗到底!我们的终止莱纳斯运动得到了世界各地的关注与支持!最近有又有海外的一些支持者,表示密切的关怀!让我们尊重的表态,我们会继续不断的反对建立在格宾的莱纳斯稀土厂;我们也要让有意收购这间稀土厂的买家,我们绝不允许我们赖以生存的环境,受到任意污染。这间充满瑕疵和缺乏适当的废料处置方案的稀土厂,将会成为任何想接手的资本家,血本无归;因为我们会不间断的抗争, 直到它退出为止!

来吧,让我们即刻行动,扮演好我们个人应尽的角色,终止莱纳斯!
让我们终结莱纳斯吧!过去的2年,我们无休止的推动终止莱纳斯运动,也经历了不少挫折和小小的胜利,如今莱纳斯虽说工厂仍竖立在格宾工业区,它正挣扎求存。让我们继续振作起来,提起精神来捍卫我们的将来!
