Yesterday (26/02/2012) in the various states in Malaysia there was a nationwide rally held against Lynas Malaysia.
Lynas is a company that mines rare earth and since last year there has been a fight against their plans to operate their refinery plant in Gebeng, an industrial estate about 20 km from Kuantan by Malaysia.
This is mainly due to the fact that these ores are radioactive and such a processing plant will potentially impose tonnes of toxic waste on the lives and livelihoods of surrounding residents.
For more information or to support the cause please visit http://savemalaysia-stoplynas.blogspot.com/ and http://stoplynas.org/
As I am unable of personally be in Malaysia to show my support I whipped up this piece of art (amiss finishing up on my projects) for support.
