1000 Mothers Against Rare Earth Plant @ Teluk Cempedak Beach

1,000 ibu membantah Loji Rare Earth @ Pantai Teluk Cempedak!

One of the worst nightmares of having a Rare Earth Plant in your neighbourhood is that mothers may give birth to deformed babies.

Can you imagine the pain and ache if the new life a couple and the family look forward to will be mentally retarded or physically deformed? Can you imagine the agony if a mother has to decide whether or not to terminate pregnancy?
Let's show the resolve of Kuantan and Malaysian people to reject the Lynas Rare Earth Plant.

This coming Mother Day, come to Teluk Cempedak beach with your family.
Bring a Carnation.
Cherish the Sunset.
Defend our beach.
Protect our babies.

We post this event request from a concerned member. Looking back at our experience in previous events, we believe a long lead time is necessary. Hence, we hope you will send this event invite to all your friends. In three weeks, we hope to get 1000 mothers with their families to be there.

We welcome any suggestions from the Stop Lynas, Save Malaysia campaign or other concerned citizens. Please post here or email us at

I quote the above long article from Facebook.

So, what is this LYNAS all about? LYNAS is an Australian-based company with this website ->

A simple check on their website and you will know they are into this rare earth business. They claim that it is 'zero harm and sustainable development' in their process. What do you think?

I was told by a friend of mine who work at Gebeng, Kuantan, that this project has been started since 2 years ago. Till now only we bring this issue out loudly. But I dont see it on newspaper? Close case? Cover up?

Come on, learn from Japan's tsunami disaster ok? That tsunami cost them terrible damage in term of economy, life, and the future of their people is under danger. Danger of radiation from the nuclear plant. After tsunami, they share market plunge >5%. How many money lost in the economy? IF.. i mention IF Malaysia were to have any problem with the rare earth plant in the future, what will happen? Our KLSE plunge 5%? How much is 5%? As of today our KLCI stand at 1522.75, so a drop of 5% meaning drop till 1446. Those who invest in futures (FKLI) will lose at least 80 points x RM50 = RM4,000 per contract. How about those investing in equities?

Then, we talk about the impact of the rare earth, if leak into the sea, river.. Do we have the expertise to solve this? Then government need to hire brainpower from overseas to help to solve. How much does this brainpower cost? RM1million to solve? RM10million? Can they really solve it? Japan, a country that is much advanced than us also cannot solve. What about our country? 80% of our people cannot even handle simple mathematics and live in the poor.

Just my personal rant..

Just think about it ok?? And do something..
