Several thousand people gathered this morning for a rally in Pengerang to protest against a massive RM60bn petrochemical project in a move that could further loosen the BN’s electoral strangehold on Johor.
The rally was dubbed Himpunan Hijau Lestari Pengerang.
A few thousand villagers will be displaced by the petrochemical project. They have been offered alternative housing 15-20km away, but the resettlement area lacks supporting infrastructure and public amenities.
Pakatan has vowed to cancel the project should it win power.
