Solidarity Support to Bukit Koman Anti-Cyanide Movement

Yesterday a group of 30 Kg Sg Terentang villagers and I visited Kampung Bukit Koman at Pahang.

After court of appeal rejected the judicial review of the EIA issues on 3/8/2011, Bukit Koman Anti-Cyanide Committee meet on 7/8/2011 to brief the villagers of the movement progress and latest update. The villagers agreed to appeal the case in the Federal Court.

  1. The only way is to run for election as candidate in all constituencies, THEN remove the state government bureaucrats officials that are approving lax effluent disposal methods.

    Wasting your time visiting such and such company and taking samples orn what not, but not challenging in all constituencies to even abolish taxes and road tolls in Pahang state amounts to no effect.

    If you have time to visit the company, you sure can prepare to run for election.If enough seats are won, the gold mine companies will need to comply with safe methods of disposal. Also remember :

    1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
    2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
    3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution.

    Wuldf gan Pei Mei speak against nepptisdm and oligarchy for the people too so the Rakyat won’t have to deal with another PAP in the future?

    I wrote an article on RAGM for TheSun newspaper a few years ago. Please do not misunderstand that this company is not Australian owned and nor does it have anything to do with Australia. In 2010 it was owned by Andrew Kam and was operated under the company name Peninsular Gold Limited and floated on the Aleternate Investment Market in the UK. Its principle shareholders are Malaysian. Please amend your last caption which states: “Pay a visit to the Australia Cyanide Company, but being blocked by police” as it implies Australian’s own and operate a Cyanide company there.

    Kind regards,
