Anti-Lynas protest outside Parliament


The anti-Lynas movement is holding a protest outside Parliament this morning.

They are hoping to meet the PM as well as key Pakatan leaders to express their concerns about the Lynas rare earth refinery.

The protest comes in the wake of the Parliamentary Select Committee recommending that Lynas be awarded a temporary operating licence and subject to recommendations. What else did you expect from this committee.

As one blog commenter said, Australias get our graduates (the so-called ‘brain drain’) and Malaysia gets the rare earth waste.

PROVE IT. Build your gravy train sundry shops next to it. Otherwise, don’t ask us diam-diam like a dictator. If you can’t prove to us with your deed of believing in Lynass, who’s going to buy it, … minion.
Rather be safe than be sorry for a lifetime due to (pea)-brain foolishness!

Aussie gomen wants the brains of Malaysians. Reported that who graduate with Aussie U can work at Down Under.
Only foolish barang naik regime allow brain drain export while toxic import is welcomed.

Protest as much as you like but BN is blind and deaf and shameless. How do you expect to meet the PM when he is probably making another side trip for shopping or a reunion with his son in law in Europe after visiting Saudi Arabia? He spend RM3million on the last trip and I wonder how much for this trip again? What’s a few millions here and a few millions there – I thought the NST reported that his late father asked him not to be extravagant? Am I the only one who is scrimping to pay income tax?… Read more »
