The #PenangTolakTambak (Penang Rejects Reclamation) campaign received a major boost today when Permatang Pauh MP Nurul Izzah came out with a strong commentary calling for the cancellation of the ecologically damaging Penang South Reclamation mega-project.
The project aims to create three artificial islands spanning 4,500 acres that will destroy prime fishing waters.
Well done, Nurul Izzah!
Zakaria Ismail of the Sungai Batu fishing unit at ground zero was in high spirits upon hearing the news: “Kita bertambah kuat. Lawan sampai menang” (We’re growing stronger. We’ll struggle on until we win).
