Mothers Turning their Anguish to Parliament to Stop Lynas
- CHANGE OF THE TIME, SAME VENUE -
Place: Federal Parliament, Jalan Parlimen, Kuala Lumpur
Date: Monday, 5th November 2012
Journalists are hereby informed that a group of mothers from Kuantan will be travelling to the Federal Parliament to hand over a memorandum to the Prime Minister. They will be meeting with the minister in Prime Minister's Department YB Dato' Seri Mohamed Nazri bin Abdul Aziz in the parliament at 4.00pm.
The memorandum to be presented to the Prime Minister will be a complaint against the Atomic Energy Licensing Board (AELB) and the Minster for Science, Technology and Innovations (MOSTI) for failing in their public duty of care to exercise prudence to protect the children, the unborn and many future generations to come for issuing the relevant licences to facilitate Lynas to operate and dump toxic and radioactive waste near Kuantan.
Early last month in September, the AELB issued the temporary operating licence to Lynas Corporation. A week later it was discovered by the media that the AELB has also issued the import licence and the licence to dump waste for Lynas to start polluting our beautiful shore and hometown.
The mothers and their supporters will gather outside the Parliament for some actions starting from 3pm onwards. They will be available for media briefing and interviews in the Parliament as well.
