Himpunan Hijau 109 @ Kuantan Pahang

5000 to 8000 green protesters in the 109 green assembly under the police intimidation.

As usual, Bernama reporter is like police chief who cannot count the number correctly as seen in the Bersih 2.0.


1,000 at protest against projects


KUANTAN: The Green Assembly 109 in protest against two projects deemed hazardous to the people’s health attracted about 1,000 people at Taman Gelora here, short of the 10,000 targeted by the organisers.

The protesters, mainly residents of Kuantan and representatives of non-governmental organisations such as Suara Anak Malaysia, Save Malaysia Stop Lynas Movement and Anti Rare Earth Refinery Action Body, gathered at 6 am and dispersed three hours later.

The gathering, which was also attended by Kuantan MP and PKR vice-president Fuziah Salleh and Bersih 2.0 chairman Datuk S. Ambiga, was held to protest against the construction of the rare earth processing plant by Lynas Corporation Ltd in Gebeng and a gold mining project in Bukit Koman, Raub.

The police had issued a permit for the gathering on Friday but withdrew it yesterday evening.

Federal Reserve Unit (FRU) personnel were deployed in the area today to monitor the situation.

At a news conference later, Fuziah said Green Assembly 109 had achieved its objective of getting the people together to protest against projects deemed hazardous to their health.

Why BN is wasting FRU resources to check on this peaceful gathering?

What happened to the world’s best democracy?

Mana rakyat didahulukan?

Mana kerajaan yang prihatin?

Undilah dengan bijaksana anda!
