莫忘史上最严重的毒气泄漏事件


图片中的并非玩具鬼娃娃,这亦非电影宣传片段,在1984年,这来不及合上双眼就已经中毒身亡的孩子,震惊了全世界,痛进每个人心坎里。。。

1984
123日凌晨,在印度博帕尔市,当人们还沉浸在美好的梦乡里,没有任何预警,没有任何征兆,一片雾气在博帕尔市上空蔓延。。。很快的,在方圆40平方公里以内50万人的居住区内,人们在睡梦中惊醒并开始咳嗽,呼吸困难,眼睛被灼伤。


那一夜,有3500人吸入空气中的毒气立即丧生, 医院挤满了惊慌痛苦的受害者,医生对有毒物质的性质却一无所知。第二天早晨,整个市区到处都是尸体,城市变成了一座恐怖之城。毒气沉淀后,渗入到水源,因为水源的关系,数周后死亡人数增加到12500人
袋子中装满的是博帕尔毒气泄漏事件遇难者的尸体。

灾难的源头来自
前一天下午。。。
一间化学工业公司在例行日常保养的过程中,维修工人的失误导致了水突然流入到装有45吨液态剧毒性异氰酸甲酯(MIC的储藏罐内。MIC 是一种氰化物,一旦遇水会产生强烈的化学反应。水意外渗入载有MIC的储藏罐内后,令罐内产生极大的压力,最后导致罐内的剧毒氰化物泄漏,以气体的形态迅速向外扩散, 事故泄漏至博帕尔市的上空。

博帕尔毒气泄漏事件迄今陆续致使超过
55万人死于和化学中毒有关的肺癌、肾衰竭、肝病等疾病,20多万博帕尔居民永久残废,5万人双目失明,而且当地居民的患癌率及临盆婴儿夭折率也是全印度最高。因此,博帕尔毒气泄漏堪称为人类历史上《最严重的工业灾难之一》。

虽然距毒气泄漏事件已有25年的时间,但时至今日那里的儿童一出生就遭受着各种病痛和身体畸形的困扰。

很难想象,一间在美国所有大跨国公司中名列第37位的世界主要化学工业公司夹着最大的资金最完善的设备,还是无法案避免在印度上演如此重大的工业意外。。。试想想如果任何的泄漏意外发生在武吉公满的金矿我国政府如何能够确保人民不会受灾更何况该金矿公司一直拒绝第三方中立机构或专家进入查探,根本就是闭门作业!

当一个住宅区内探测到高达19.6ppm的so2(二氧化硫),当距离金矿区1.8km以外的地方也能探测到HCN(氰酸,氰化物),这意味着类似博帕尔毒气泄漏事件的灾难随时可能在劳勿上演。究竟州政府,环境局,劳勿国会议员黄燕燕医生,州务大臣等高观显要,是以什么标准判断意外不会发生?若是意外发生,由谁来承担不堪的后果?

博帕尔毒气泄漏事件中毒死近60万人,却迟至25年后(201067日)才判决,最高刑罚仅判两年有期徒刑。至于受害者,也只不过得到477~533美元不等的赔偿金,甚至有很多受害者一分钱也没拿到。我们劳勿的子民,未来的命运即将如何?

123日是博帕尔毒气泄漏事件的哀悼日,希望借由这起重大的人为灾害,唤起我国政府的关注,黄金再怎么昂贵,亦应该以人民优先,而非官官相卫无视人民水深火热,切莫以千万人命换取闪亮黄金!

Bukit Koman residents get recognition

PETALING JAYA (Oct 18, 2010): "We know we’re fighting a losing battle but I want to do my best for the future generation because we don’t want them to curse us for not standing up for their rights."

These were the words of Bukit Koman Anti-Cyanide Committee (BKACC) secretary Mustapha Hussin when the committee was honoured at the Wild Asia Heroes recognition event at the Freedom Film Festival.

"We are not against the mine and its operations but we’re against the usage of sodium cyanide at the carbon-in-leach (CIL) plant which is so close to the village.

"We’re worried about the effects on our community and the environment especially in time to come," he said at the event held at Universiti Malaya.

He had travelled from Raub with BKACC president Wong Kin Hoong, assistant secretary Hue Fui How and Hue’s wife and was joined by other committee members.

The Bukit Koman community were one of the four Wild Asia Heroes nominated this year alongside Dr Joean Oon, also known as the Garbage Enzyme Lady; the now infamous Orang Asli champion Tijah Yok Chopil and the Lubok Bongor Conservation, Cultural, Social and Welfare Society in Kelantan.

Mustapha related the 200-year-old history of the Raub Australian Gold Mining site and the villagers’ battle against the use of cyanide.

"During a meeting in 2006, the villagers were told that the operations were 'safe'," he said, adding that the operators could not give them any assurance in writing.

"We’ve gone through the proper channels, sure they were very helpful but once they look at the evidence and know who we are, they stop there."

Wild Asia associate editor Jules Ong said the heroes were chosen because they worked for their cause with very little recognition and support.

"These heroes have been working very quietly with a lot of obstacles as well," Ong said in her introduction.

Wild Asia also extended its social media platform – Twitter (twitter.com/wildasia) and Facebook homepage (http://www.facebook.com/wildasiafan) – for the heroes to publicise their efforts and programmes.

Gold mine is safe, says operator - theSun

Gold mine is safe, says operator
Llew-Ann Phang and James Hyams

newsdesk@thesundaily.com

RAUB Australian Gold Mining (RAGM) has complied with the stringent standards set by government agencies like the Department of Environment, and Land and Mines Department, that even schoolchildren visit it.

RAGM owner, Peninsular Gold chairman and chief executive director Datuk Seri Andrew Kam said RAGM frequently receives requests from the community, including schools, to visit the mine.

"We encourage such visits. They show that we are transparent about our operations and which we believe to be a further demonstration of the community’s support for our project," he said.

RAGM’s environmental manager, Gayathri Indran, said the company has gone out of its way to communicate to the local residents about its operations, how safe they are and how they are subject to monitoring tests by the relevant government agencies.

An employee of the mine testing the chemical level of a tailings solution
obtained from the mine.
"However, it is only a minority which refuses to accept this. We’ve even gone to meet them at the height of the issue last year when we were met with complaints of smoke and noise," she said.

"I gave them my contact details so they can call me the next time they saw smoke or any kind of emission from the mine but I’ve received no calls since."

During a recent visit, RAGM technical chief operating officer Laurie Mann said there was nothing special about the way the mine operates.

"It’s a standard run-of-the-ill carbon-in-leach (CIL) plant. If there is something special about it, it’s the green all around it,"he said.

He said the levels of reagent and chemicals like cyanide are at such low levels that they cannot be precisely measured.

"We maintain the water at pH levels and never allow neutralising of the water in which the sludge is mixed with cyanide, hydrogen peroxide, hydrochloric acid, carbon and liquid oxygen," Mann said.

He said the amount of cyanide used in the mine does not present a danger to humans or the environment and monitors are in place to set off alarms should a leak take place.

"We’re not saying it is not dangerous. It’s about how you use it. We’re happy to show people around because there is nothing special about this plant at all," he said. "Some people somewhere are making a lot of effort to stir up something."

Mann explained RAGM had not ratified the International Cyanide Management Code (ICMC), to apply new standards since ICMC "evolves with time".

RAGM says it is committed to being a signatory to the ICMC in about four to five years but, in the mean time, it will continue to comply with international standards for its operations as they are "efficient" and it is "company policy".

The company claims the Department of Environment had camped out eight days at the site to ensure that its operations were not affecting the air quality and jeopardising the health of the surrounding neighbourhood.

"There is no benefit in making ourselves liable. Why would we dump in that kind of money (investment) to cause any trouble? We are a part of the community," said an RAGM employee, who requested anonymity

"We have workers from here and we want a harmonious life not just for us but for the people here and we want everything to be safe."

The plant, which runs round the clock, is manned by 180 employees on three shifts. Static monitors stationed in various locations around the CIL plant are calibrated every two months (instead of the requirement of six months) by an independent company to ensure that harmful levels of chemicals are not emitted.

The pH level of the mix in CIL tanks is tested by employees at a frequency of four to five times each shift, Mann said.

Process used in mines around the world

THE carbon in leach (CIL) and cyanide mining process is used in gold mines throughout the world, including Stawell Gold Mine in Australia, Martha Gold Mine in New Zealand, and Campbell Gold Mine in Canada.

At all of these mines, the CIL facility is located between 555m and 1.17km from the nearest residential zone. Peninsula Gold, the company that owns RAGM, is listed as a company from Jersey where companies pay limited, if any, tax.

RAGM’s main shareholder at 38.3% is Datuk Seri Andrew Kam whose father, Kam Woon Wah, is a veteran of the Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA).

Cyanide: ‘Dangerous but completely safe’ - theSun

Cyanide: ‘Dangerous but completely safe’
by Llew-Ann Phang and James Hyams

RAUB (Oct 17, 2010):
THE RAGM mine commenced using a carbon-in-leach (CIL) technology in 2007 to extract gold from old mining deposits, also known as tailings.

As cyanide readily bonds with gold, it is used at hundreds of mines around the world to extract gold.

At RAGM, the dug out soil, which is bonded with the minute grains of gold ore, is put through a series of open vats and mixed with water, sodium cyanide, liquid oxygen, carbon, hydrogen peroxide, lime, unslaked lime, and hydrochloric acid.

Thereafter, the cyanide solution and gold are separated.

The remaining cyanide-mud slush is restored to a safe level and then put into the tailings pond.

According to mine Technical Chief Operating Officer Laurie Mann, the remaining cyanide is in such a small dose that is dissipates.

"While cyanide can be dangerous, we spend a lot of time and money to ensure the process is completely safe," he said.

Dr Glenn Miller, an expert on the impact of chemicals used in mines, said that the 1996 EIA was inadequate.

"These documents did not accurately describe the proposed mine, and, in fact some aspects were apparently changed in a significant manner, including the method of tailings disposal, as well as the location of several of the mine components.

"The documents did not meet international or US standards and would not have been accepted in most jurisdictions."

Miller believes the EIA should start again and RAGM should sign the International Cyanide Management Code.

"In one of the documents I reviewed, the mine proponent indicated that they would abide by the Cyanide Code.

"Unless the mining company is a signatory of the Code, the assertion of abiding by the Code is meaningless."

Mann said the RAGM mine follows guidelines outlined in the Cyanide Code but it would be another four to five years before it ratified the code.

Miller’s strongest criticism was the lack of information from RAGM and the regulatory agencies.

"Because a list of the chemicals and the amount used is not provided, it is effectively impossible to know if any of the chemicals used at the site have had an impact on the surrounding community."

Miller said the RAGM mine is the most "hidden" project he has ever reviewed.

"In my experience over nearly 30 years with mines, the practice of not releasing information correlates with increased problems in the years ahead.

"When something goes wrong in a secretive mining operation, the public is less likely to know about it, and improvements and changes in practices are less likely to occur.

"Also in my experience, mining companies also are subject to less damaging criticism when they are open with information and have good communication with the surrounding residents.

"In the case of the Raub mine with residents immediately around the borders of the mine, communication is critical to maintaining good public relations and a healthy operating environment."

Miller also was surprised by the "threatening stance" he alleges RAGM took towards him.

"Rather than invite citizens of Bukit Koman to visit the site when I was there, they had a rather rotund guard follow us around the community on a motor scooter as we travelled from place to place."

When Kam was asked about these "watchdogs", he suggested Dr Miller went to Raub with presuppositions about the mine.

"Would you let someone into your home who has already made up their mind before seeing the facts?"

On its visit theSun, accompanied by residents and their lawyers, were tailed on a public road next to the RAGM mine. A mine personnel copied down the number plate of our vehicle and followed us on a motorcycle until we left the vicinity.

The state government has not returned emails requesting information on whether the Environment, Health, Minerals and Geoscience departments are conducting checks and doing reports as suggested by Pahang Local Government, Environment and Health exco Datuk Hoh Khai Mun back in May last year.

He had said that geologists will check the mining site every week and every three months, a medical team will carry out health inspections on residents, as well as take water samples from the area.

Residents claim quality of life in doubt
by Llew-Ann Phang and James Hyams

RAUB (Oct 17, 2010):
LIKE many, the residents of Bukit Koman want three things in life -- good health, peace, and a good environment to leave to the next generation.

However some residents feel all these are under threat in Bukit Koman. They say the Raub Australia Gold Mining Sdn Bhd (RAGM), located about 900m from the village is polluting the air, poses a risk to the environment and is affecting their health.

Residents are also crying foul as the Environmental Impact Assessment was completed in 1996, although the mine only started operations 11 years later. Politicians have been avoiding them and police have, at times, stopped residents from protesting or arrested them for entering the mine.

Hue Fui How, who has lived in Bukit Koman for more than 30 years, claims members of the community are getting sick regularly with skin and eye conditions, breathing difficulties and stress.

"For old people like us, our immune systems are down. My speech is already slowing down.

"It may be psychological. It could be air-borne pollution. No-one knows … Not even the doctors."

Liew See Yong and Chan Ah Lan suffer from skin conditions. Liew went to a local doctor who could not locate the source of the irritation, yet suggested it could be a result of stress, an allergy or something air-borne.

Chan also has a skin condition that started two years ago. She has seen skin specialists and claims to have spent more than RM20,000 on treatment to no avail.

Kepong MP Dr Tan Seng Giaw, a dermatologist, when shown photographs, said Chan’s skin condition resembled Urticaria.

Datuk Seri Andrew Kam who owns the RAGM gold mine said he is yet to see anyone with such a skin condition.

"If they have a legitimate reason to believe it is related to the mine they should show me," he said.

However, members of the Bukit Koman Anti-Cyanide Committee (BKACC) dispute this, having staged protests against the mine and have resorted to the courts to stop the use of potentially toxic chemicals in the mine.

Bukit Koman Resident and assistant secretary of the BKACC Hue Fui How said there has never been any health inspections in the area and doubts the other departments are monitoring the situation.

"For the last six months I have not seen anyone from the health department," he said.

BKACC president Wong Kim Loong feels the government could do more.

"We went through all the proper channels. Nothing was done," he said, adding that the mine is too close to the village.

"Heavy industries should be at least five kilometres from a village."-- theSun

Suspicious mines - theSun

Suspicious mines
by Llew-Ann Phang and James Hyams




RAUB (Oct 17, 2010):
FOR two years, residents of Bukit Koman have been expressing their concern on the use of cyanide in the operations of Raub Australian Gold Mining, located under a kilometre away.

The residents – who have held numerous protests, despite being obscure and restricted to the small coterie of villagers – were labelled opportunistic, and unreasonable for their concerns over their health and the environment.

Their problem was thrust into the national spotlight when up to 85 of them travelled by two hired buses to Hulu Selangor to confront their MP, Datuk Dr Ng Yen Yen who was campaigning in the by-election, in full glare of television cameras and flashing bulbs.

The result of the confrontation with Ng was a 20-minute commotion which she pinned on DAP’s Tras assemblyman Chong Siew Onn as attempting to "cause trouble" for political reasons.

In June last year, Ng was quoted as saying she remained mum on the matter because when "people refuse to listen to scientific facts, one cannot talk reason."

In a recent attempt to contact Ng for a response, all she said, according to a staff, was: "I will respond when the time is right."

Ng had in fact met residents and the Bukit Koman Anti-Cyanide Committee (BKACC) and brought a specialist to see them. This meeting took place in 2006, a year before the mine commenced operations using cyanide – a vital chemical for extracting gold from soil. It is a method that has been used for more than a century.

The residents beg to differ as they claim they have been suffering health and environmental impacts since the mine started operations in 2007.

BKACC’s concerns have sparked off a case now in the Court of Appeal. Residents, aided by Sahabat Alam Malaysia (SAM) are applying for leave for judicial review of the Department of Environment’s (DOE) decision not to order a fresh Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA).

The mine is operating on an EIA done in 1996 – almost 11 years before the commencement of mining using the carbon-in-leach (CIL) technology.

While waiting the outcome of their legal battle, Bukit Koman residents continue to suffer eye irritation, breathing difficulty and skin conditions that are expensive to treat.

A 54-year-old housewife claims she has spent more than RM20,000 on the lingering skin condition for the past two years. The rash is spread in large blotches on her face, neck and arms.

"I’ve lived here for 31-years. There was nothing at first (referring to her skin condition) and then when the mine started … Gone lah (The rash started appearing)!

"Now I have to travel to KL to see a specialist and sit in an air-conditioned room for most of the day," Chan Ah Lan said.

BKACC president Wong Kin Hoong said the committee had exhausted all the proper channels when trying to obtain data and information for the village of about 3,000 people.

"We tried approaching the DOE, the Department of Lands and Mines, the Department of Health, our state exco for health and environment, the mentri besar who took over the Village Head position (a position traditionally held by the MCA state liaison chairman) but we have received no help.

"We met with the MB and the Exco but we didn’t get to express our concerns at that meeting because we felt we were ambushed by the presence of RAGM people," Wong lamented.

RAGM – a subsidiary of Peninsular Gold – maintains that its operations at the CIL plant was indeed safe.

Peninsular Gold chairman and chief executive Datuk Seri Andrew Kam opened the mine’s doors to theSun to have a look at its operations.

"We’re very open and transparent and we have nothing to hide … If they have a health problem and they have a legitimate reason to believe it is related to the mine they should show me. I will look into it," he said.

The use of cyanide is carefully carried out and monitored and if there is a change in operations, RAGM is required to submit an Environment Management Plan to the DOE.

RAGM technical chief operation officer Laurie Mann, during a tour of the mine, explained that the dug out soil is mixed with water, sodium cyanide, liquid oxygen, carbon, hydrogen peroxide, lime, unslaked lime and hydrochloric acid.

"The cyanide solution and gold are separated and the remaining cyanide and mud slush is restored to a safe level, and then put into the tailing pond.

"The remaining cyanide is in such a small dose that is dissipates.

"While cyanide can be dangerous, we spend a lot of time and money to ensure the process is completely safe," Mann added. -- theSun

执意赞成山埃采金者,你们还能无动于衷吗?

自从武吉公满金矿以山埃采金以来,武吉公满及周边居民除了不约而同健康出状况外,还频频患上无名皮肤病,苦不堪言。

下图为一名最新皮肤病患的照片。病者是一位60余岁的老伯伯,住在距离金矿1.5公里的Simpang Kallang。他于一个月前皮肤出现痕痒,红肿,红疱滋生,还恶化成脓疱。


从此照片不难看见其脓疱破裂出汁的状况,见者心酸。。。




到底是谁剥夺了我们生存在健康安全家园的权力?

血肉之躯承受如斯痛苦,再加上精神上的折磨,试问执意赞成山埃采金者于心何忍?说山埃采金安全的国会议员,卫生部和环境部,更新山埃采金执照的州政府,您们还能无动于衷吗?

天下父母心,对于居民患病的事实,倘若你们还是无动于衷的话,我不是在否定你们的“父母心”, 而是因为~它不是发生在你们的家人或你们的孩子身上。。。

《孝经》云:“身体发肤,受之父母,不敢毁伤,孝之始也。”我们竟然连要好好保护自己身体,以落实基本的孝道也不能做到,呜呼哀哉!

鹽酸洩漏大戒備‧腐蝕性強‧大道休息站關閉
一輛載有2000公升高濃度腐蝕液体的小羅里,在南北大道霹靂河休息站發生泄漏事故。
(圖:星洲日報)

以上是金矿公司在环境评估报告中所列明将使用的化学物及分量.金矿公司每年将使用400吨的Sodium Cyanide(山埃),平均每日约1.5吨的使用量;每年109吨的hydrochloric acid(盐酸)131.4吨的SO2(二氧化硫)131.4吨的copper sulphate(硫酸铜),2800吨的lime or calcium oxide(氧化钙/生石灰)等等接近20种的化学原料。


光看以上天文数字的化学原料,姑勿论未经严格处理的泥渣将对水源造成的长期性严重破坏,亦不谈暴露空气中的有毒气体影响健康,单单是运送途中发生的泄露意外就已经是一大危机.<死亡之路>


金矿是以设立中型矿场作出申请而取得准证,却设立一个比实际规模较大的矿场,所以使用的化学原料实际上比环境评估报告显示的多。加上金矿不分昼夜廿四小时不停运作,究竟有多少辆罗厘载着何其多的化学原料长途跋涉运到武吉公满?途中又经过多少地方?


另外,武吉公满育华小学前的武吉公满路是必经之路,并不允许5吨以上的罗厘行驶,为何金矿公司的罗厘则能赦免?


8月21日,环境局完全漠视一宗又一宗的泄漏事件,不理人民反对声浪,执意更新山埃采金执照可谓妄顾人民生命安全,与首相执政理念<人民优先>背道而驰!难道要等到意外事件在武吉公满上演方愿意正视问题?!

谁敢阻我更新山埃采金执照?

採金執照獲延長一年‧金礦公司董事將入住武吉公滿

金矿老板拿督斯里甘代耀手持已获更新的山埃采金执照,得意洋洋的登上各报章,这意味着采金工程又被获允延长多一年.

每年更新山埃采金执照的其中一个程序,就是必需得到村长的认可和签名.

一间有皇室背景撑腰的金矿公司,
一个马华老臣子的儿子,
有能力促使州务大臣暂代武吉公满的村长
有能力用逾期10年的环境评估报告申请准证
自然有其能力更新采金的执照.

黄燕燕说是村民纠缠不清,
廖中莱说武吉公满没有人反对山埃采金,
慕尤丁说村民一派谎言,
马华说不关他们的事...
既然是非可以颠倒,所以,
金矿说廠房離開新村1公里遠,廢水集中循環處離開民宅2公里不足为奇.

等了4年说要来住的州务大臣,只闻楼梯响,
金矿公司董事入住武吉公满?标题下得操之过急.
大人物有住或不住的选择权,
只有贫苦的村民被迫放弃健康生存的权力.

其实数年来,反山埃委员会多番致函金矿公司,要求在第三方中立机构陪同下进入矿场''参观''却不得要领,反观一名普通教师就有能力携同一班学生进入窥探采金过程,还手捧金砖照相留恋.

本人不知该教师是否比任何专家更有其过人之处,只知道该名教师名为邱赋斌,是马华党员,而且不止一次进入金矿.另外,碰巧在面子书上看到一段当天有份参观金矿的学生对话.

武吉公满村民有百毒不侵之身?

武吉公满山埃采金课题延烧两年有余,村民多番抗议当局批准矿商在新村内设置冶 金厂,所得到的标准回应不是“金矿绝对安全,村民无需担心”; 就是“这是反对党的炒作,村民受到误导”。

我 们暂且放下上述的官方回应,把眼光投向近期发生的两宗相关事故。

第一宗,6月26日,秘鲁安第斯矿区废水溃堤,超过2.1万立方米含有氰化物(山 埃化合物)的剧毒废水流入附近河流,导致距离矿区70公里外的野生动植物大量死亡。秘鲁万卡维利卡省地方水务局证实,污染面积已经超过1500公顷。由于 事态严重,秘鲁政府被逼宣布该地区进入为期90天的紧急状态。

第二宗,本月初,中国最大的黄金生产商于福建省的矿场,发生剧毒废水外 泄事件,造成有“客家母亲河”美誉的汀江流域严重污染,数千吨鱼只中毒死亡。该地区渔民指出,地方政府涉嫌包庇矿商,因为早在6月中的一次暴雨过后,已经 出现鱼只死亡的情况。可是直到7月初情况恶化,大量死鱼浮上水面,臭味笼罩整条河流,当局才通过短讯提醒民众不要用使用河水,不要捕吃鱼只。

上 述两个在相隔不到一个月内发生剧毒外泄的矿场,再加上多年来世界各地发生事故的矿场,如10年前造成2千平方公里严重污染的罗马尼亚金矿场,我相信当地政 府在向他们发出采金及冶金执照前,也是认定“金矿绝对安 全,民众无需担心”的。

不幸中的大幸,过去发生剧毒外泄的部份矿场,与民宅之间尚有一段缓冲区。而平均 每天使用1.5吨山埃及其他将近20种化学原料的武吉公满冶金厂与民宅的距离,却只有一条马路之隔!

村民不是愚蠢的,村民更不是为了反对而反对。他们的焦 虑,是源自于以下几项疑虑:

第一,金矿公 司没有对村民公布任何意外应急措施,如:在意外发生时的通讯管道、紧急疏散及逃生方法等。
第二,金矿公司没有公布为剧毒石渣进行“去毒”的预算。 当初招股时,该公司宣称“大马地方政府及租地者没有要求对山埃废料进行去毒”。
第三,金矿公司没有公布有毒泥渣的处理方法。
第四,金矿公 司没有公布有毒废气的处理方法。
第五,《国际山埃管理法典》的官方网站显示,该金矿公司并没有签署这项监督金矿业者安全使用山埃的国际准则。
第 六,金矿公司当初为何坚持不肯将金矿冶炼厂设置于远离民宅的地点?

在矿场开始运作的两年多以来,村民每一天就在上述的疑虑中战战竞竞地过 活。而他们最大的疑惑,莫过于政府为什么可以气定神闲一口咬定“矿场绝对安全”?在一个亿元体育馆可以因为一场大雨而坍塌的国度,这种保障的含金量有多高?

在 国外矿场剧毒外泄频传、当地安全措施受到质疑的情况下,持续更新有关公司的采金执照,难道是认定武吉公满村民个个横练金钟罩,拥有刀枪不入百毒不侵之身?

外国矿场泄毒瘾以为鉴,应禁山埃采金!

拿督黄燕燕,劳勿的居民还在望穿秋水等待与您会面!
希望拿督黄迈生处理了积罗垃圾场事件后,不会“忘了”对武吉公满村民许下的承诺!

子曰:人而无信,不知其可也 。
我们相信,故我们期待。
请别因为您的无信,而破坏了人与人之间这份诚信。。。

不知马华如何查清真相?


1. 如果请愿不是解决问题的方法的话,那请问马华最佳方法是什么?
请别忘了,“在山埃采金事件当中,不关马华的事,马华的责任只是“帮”你们提呈备忘录而已”~拿督林锦胜



2.在影片中拿督林锦胜语不惊人死不休的金句“我们马华做不到,反对党更加做不到!”
身为政府成员党之一的马华连自己也无能为力,为何却要求行动党要做到?应当严己宽人,不应宽己严人,还有不要以五十步笑百步,那是不对的行为,老师教的。

3.既然是通过马华管道把有关部门“请”到武吉公满做一连串检验的,那么详细报告就公开出来啊!我们不要只听喊出来的结果,白纸黑字证明给我们看!

4.如果我家进贼了,我去报警,警方却叫我自己去捉贼,应该吗?
我们是受害者,我们作出投诉,调查真相是政府的责任,如今还要我们收集证据去证明,说的过去吗?

5.对钟绍安所说过的话马华就铭记于心,久不久拿出来炒隔夜饭,对于州务大臣所答应来武吉公满住的言论,马华竟然患失忆症,无人敢呛声!不是双重标准是什么?
更何况,在朝党解决不了问题反讥在野党不力,那政府干脆给在野党来做算了!

6.法庭虽已作出裁决,但马华必须知道,我们败诉的原因不是因为山埃采金安全,而是技术上的失误~我们必须在10年前就提出司法审核上诉

7.谁真正为民服务,选民心里自有底。下届大选就知道结果了!

秘鲁矿场堤坝崩塌!!!

Peru Environment Ministry declares 90-day emergency to clean up mine spill into Andean river

Peru’s Environment Ministry declared a 90-day emergency Tuesday to clean up some 21,420 cubic meters of toxic mine tailings that spilled late last month into the Opamayo River in the southern Department of Huancavelica.

The spill occurred June 26 when a containment dam at the Caudalosa Chica mine collapsed, unleashing cyanide-tinged waste water into the Opamayo, which flows into the larger Urubamba River.

Carlos Candiotti, secretary of the Environmental Control Committee in the province of Angaraes told cable news station Canal N that thousands of trout in a fish farm downstream were killed by the fouled waters.

The Environment Ministry should release short-term action plan for the cleanup within five days, in coordination with Civil Defense and the ministries of Health and Energy & Mines, as well as the regional government of Huancavelica, daily Peru.21 reported.

The Environment Ministry indicatd that any penalty levied against Caudalosa Chica will have to be decided by the Ministry of Energy and Mines.

The regional director of Civil Defense for Huancavelica, Rafael Rojas, criticized the government on CPN radio for waiting more than a week to declare the emergency.


秘鲁矿场堤坝崩塌,导致21,420立方米含剧毒山埃的污水外溢,下流受到严重污染,数以千计的鲑鱼因此而死亡!政府还启动90天紧急机制清理河流。

是谁说“外国以山埃采金没问题,很安全,偏偏在她的选区就那么多反对的声音”

难道我们是真的被误导?为反对而反对?

事实胜于雄辩。秘鲁矿场堤坝崩塌事件就揭露了其隐藏的杀机。

谁能保证意外不会在武吉公满上演???

恳望政府不要更新于2010年8月21日届满的山埃采金准证。
