Reportback by Steve Hang, Media & Communication, Save Malaysia! Stop Lynas!
We would like yo share with you some photos taken this afternoon from the Save Malaysia, Stop Lynas Committee’s (SMSL) action at Lynas office in Perth, Australia.
This is our second STOP-LYNAS protest action in Australia, the first tour took place in early July this year in front of Lynas HQ in Sydney. We gained a lot of attention and support from local Fremantle and Perth concerned citizens. We were very grateful to have Fremantle Town Councillor Sam Wainwright and former WA Senator Jo Vallentine to join in our great demonstration this afternoon.
All of us at SMSL hope that a ban on all exports of rare earth ore from Fremantle Port to Malaysia will be demanded by the local Fremantle community and politicians, and that Lynas rare earth refinery project (Lynas Advanced Materials Plant, LAMP) is stopped immediately. Over 700,000 people are living within a 30km radius of the LAMP. We will continue do whatever we can to stop this project in our hometown.
Please help us to spread this news!
“Save Malaysia, Stop Lynas!”
