300 people, some came all the way from Kuantan, held a protest against LYNAS in front of Australian high commission, Kuala Lumpur, May 20th 2011. LYNAS is building world’s largest Rare earth refinery in Gebeng, Kuantan, which has raised serious concern among Malaysians about the plant’s safety. For the record, Malaysia suffered a terrible-almost unknown radioactive tragedy back in the 1980’s in Bukit Merah, Perak.
