(thanks Duke & Claire for capturing those Sunday moments.)
This pic taken by the absent one!
roll call b4 setting out to Kuantan
we made it in time to attend the
Kuantan Citizens Forum.
Bukit Koman activists were well represented. The day before their bus was turned back to Raub. This morning they broke the blockade in a convoy of cars.
Datuk Fauzi, former MP gave the opening speech:
“Investors will only go to clean states like Penang and Selangor. Pahang is not a clean state considering that we welcomed controversial companies to Bukit Koman and Lynas”
The organizers acknowledged the support of the Barisan Rakyat Bloggers.
Undoubtedly a concerned family.
Part of a Sunday crowd of concerned Kuantan folks who listened to firsthand testimonies of birth deformities inflicted on Bukit Merah residents.
At 5:00pm we joined a PAS led protest in Jalan 1/2
The day before the MB asked why only the Chinese were protesting Lynas. He was proved wrong again.
Not difficult to realize why parents brought their kids to this protest…
As usual, they were around….but they were different from what we are used to in KL.
In fact I went across the street to thank the officers. Two were a bit startled…..and by the way, they did not ask us to disperse.
On May 8 the Barisan Rakyat Bloggers will celebrate Mothers Day with the people of Kuantan, Pahang. Join the other thousand mothers who will gather there too.
Was an Easter Sunday well-spent.
