I was aghast at the Malaysiakini report ” Uninvited guests crash anti-lynas protest”.
This is a social and health issue.
People are real scared that the setting up of this factory may lead to radiation risk and health problems.Those who oppose this are residents and ordinary people who are at risk should something goes wrong in the proposed project.
Man are fallible, and man-made projects have failings. We have seen this time and again. Even in advanced countries, man-made objects are not fool-proof, no matter how much precautions are taken.
So the feeling of fright and anger are genuine and natural, and demonstrating against the project is nothing political. This is due to REAL CONCERN and REAL FEAR.
It has nothing to do with race and religion. It has nothing to do with anti-BN. I do not understand why there is another group trying to stop the peaceful demonstration of the anti-Rare earth group.
This is a democratic country. If these people are really in support of the rare earth factory, they can always hold another demonstration peacefully at another time and avenue, not to gate crash the peaceful demonstration by the anti-rare earth group.
What has our beloved country become?
This is akin to hooliganism!
BTW, Germany has become the first country to start doing away with its nuclear plants. I believe more will follow.
