Gold miner moves to sue anti-cyanide group

Raub Australian Gold Mining (RAGM) Sdn Bhd has issued legal notices to two leaders of the Bukit Koman Anti-Cyanide Committee over what it claims to be defamatory remarks made against the company.

NONECommittee vice-chairperson Hue Shieh Lee told Malaysiakini yesterday that she and committee chairperson Wong Kim Hong () had received legal notices from the gold mining company.

According to Hue (right), the notices dated Nov 16 were sent to their home addresses at Bukit Koman New Village in Raub, Pahang.

In the notice received by Hue, RAGM, citing news reports and video clips, states that her claims made in interviews and press conferences held this year were not supported by either independent medical reports or reports provided by government agencies.

The notice says her statements do not reflect the truth and have had an adverse impact on the share price of the parent company on the AIM London Stock Exchange.

NONEIt also states that her allegations had constituted to grave and serious libel against the company in the conduct of its trade and business.

RAGM therefore demanded that Hue retracts her defamatory statements within 48 hours of the receipt of the letter, failing which legal actions would be taken against her.

It also demanded that Hue issues unequivocal apologies to be published in newspapers and online publications of RAGM's choosing.

'If they want to sue us, go ahead'

However, Hue said she would not apologise and stressed that what she and Wong had asserted at various interviews and press conferences were true.

"We are not going to apologise. If they want to sue us, go ahead," she said.

bukit koman mining lake 310107Hue, who currently works and lives with her family in Kuala Lumpur, said she obtained the letter on Tuesday, from her neighbour when she went back to Bukit Koman.

She said the letter was accepted by her neighbour last month, since there was no one at her Bukit Koman home.
Since the 48-hour ultimatum has lapsed, Hue said, she would likely be facing a legal suit initiated by RAGM.

"We will wait and see what action they will take," she added.

When contacted yesterday, RAGM chairperson and chief executive officer Andrew Kam Tai Yeow said he would comment on the matter later.

The company has also filed defamation suits against online news portals Malaysiakini and Free Malaysia Today.

Malaysiakini editor-in-chief Steven Gan has vowed to fight the lawsuit.

金矿公司发律师信恫言告诽谤,反山埃委会无惧上庭捍卫真话

继起诉《当今大马》等两家网络媒体诽谤之后,劳勿澳洲金矿私人有限公司再向反山埃委员会的两名领导发出律师信,恫言起诉两人诽谤。

反山埃委员会副主席丘雪梨今天向《当今大马》证实,她和主席黄金雄收到金矿公司的律师信,要求他们撤回被指诽谤该公司的言论,并公开道歉。

尽管如此,丘雪梨坚持他们所发表的言论都是真话,表明不会道歉之余,更放话等待该公司起诉。
记者会言论涉及诽谤

NONE她指出,金矿公司这封律师信志期今年11月16日,已经寄到黄金雄和丘雪梨位于劳勿武吉公满新村的住家。

丘雪梨(右图)收到的律师信引述新闻报道和影片,指她在今年2月、6月和7月所召开记者会及接受访问时的言论,并没有获得政府和独立医药报告佐证,因此涉嫌诽谤。

律师信指出,这些言论并没反映事实,严重破坏该公司的贸易与业务,更严重冲击其母公司在伦敦证券交易所的表现。

廿四小时撤言论道歉

因此,劳勿澳洲金矿公司要求丘雪梨,在收到此信后48小时之内撤回言论,并通过各大媒体公开道歉,否则将采取法律行动。

该公司也要求,不可再发表或重复这些恶意和诽谤指控,而该公司将保留在适当的时候,采取法律行动的权力。

丘雪梨:要起诉就来!

无论如何,丘雪梨在接受《当今大马》电访时坚称,他们在上述场合所发表的言论“都是真话”。

“我们是不会道歉的,他们要起诉就(放马过)来啦!”

昨天返老家才拿到信

她说,由于因为工作关系,她已居家搬到吉隆坡居住,因此律师信寄到她老家时,是由邻居代为签收。

她继指,本身是在昨天返回老家,才从邻居处拿取这封信,惊觉此事。

丘雪梨表示,由于48小时限期已过,因此他们预料将会面对劳勿澳洲金矿公司的法律诉讼。

“我们就等着看它有什么行动。”

当今大马被起诉诽谤

《当今大马》稍后联络上澳洲金矿公司东主甘代耀,他表示将在迟些回应此事。

在这之前,澳洲金矿公司在9月初入禀吉隆坡高庭,起诉《当今大马》等两家网络媒体诽谤

不过,《当今大马》总编辑颜重庆矢言上庭抗告到底。

Can local govt elections protect public interest and the environment?

THREE weeks ago, 10,000 protesters rallied against a gold mine in Raub, Pahang. Separately, indigenous people from Sarawak submitted a petition to the state’s chief minister to oppose the Baram dam on 19 Sept 2012. The next day, activists were protesting in front of rare earth miner Lynas Corp headquarters in Sydney.
From Pahang to Sarawak, local environmental activists are capitalising on the window before the 13th General Election, which must be called by June 2013, to highlight their causes. This weekend, another rally is being planned against a multi-billion ringgit petrochemical project at Pengerang, Johor.

The rise of environmental activism in Malaysia was highlighted in an article in The New York Times. It is unlikely the Malaysian government would be flattered with such coverage. But what could it have done to prevent these protests? What could it have done to secure better public buy-in?
Navigating public consent
One common grouse between the local communities in Raub, Kuantan, Baram and Pengerang is the feeling that they were not properly consulted and informed about the environmental, health and social impact prior to the projects’ approval.
Villagers in Bukit Koman, for instance, did not know that the Department of Environment (DOE) had given the green light to the Raub Australian Gold Mining Sdn Bhd in 1997. The factory, which uses cyanide to process the ore, is located right next to the Chinese New Village. But the locals only found out about it in 2006 and only got hold of the Preliminary Environmental Impact Assessment (PEIA) report in 2007.
The villagers filed for a judicial review in 2008 only to have their case thrown out by the High Court in 2009, again by the Court of Appeal in 2011, and most recently by the Federal Court on 6 Sept 2012. The grounds of rejection was that they should have launched court action within 40 days of having knowledge of the PEIA approval. But as policy adviser Yin Shao Loong rightly pointed out in an opinion piece, the residents would have needed more time to look for the help of sympathetic experts to understand the technical report and the project’s impact.
In the case of the rare earth refinery in Gebeng, Kuantan, local residents were also not consulted about the project. The miner was only required to carry out a PEIA instead of a detailed environmental impact assessment (DEIA). The key difference is that the public is able to scrutinise and provide feedback on a DEIA report before the DOE decides to approve or reject it.
Environmentalists have complained before that their views were not taken into account and that flawed DEIA reports have been approved. But I think the public feedback process remains crucial as it allows public access to the documents. It has enabled activists to highlight major gaps in the DEIA to the media, and to further raise public awareness about a project’s problems.
An estimated 8,000 to 10,000 people attended the peaceful rally against the gold mine on 3 Sept 2012.
An estimated 8,000 to 10,000 people attended the peaceful rally against the gold mine
Yin also proposed that consultants be hired by the DOE via a blind fund financed by various developers to carry out DEIAs. Developers should not hire consultants directly, as is the practice now, to prevent a conflict of interest. I second this proposal because the financial independence of consultants would likely increase public faith in the DEIA process.
The case for autonomous local governments
I have wondered if the local authorities of Gebeng, Raub or Pengerang willingly gave planning approval to the developers. If our local governments were truly autonomous, local councillors could have blocked projects deemed to be against public interest.
In Japan, 73 current and retired mayors spoke out against the federal government’s plan to restart two nuclear reactors. The Japanese government reactivated one nuclear reactor on 1 July 2012 despite public protests. But what struck me more was that the elected local officials dared to go against their federal counterparts. Now that is a functioning democracy.
Back in Malaysia, were the local authorities properly briefed about the gold mine in Raub or the petrochemical complex in Pengerang? Or were they pressured to issue the planning approval regardless of their concerns over the environmental and public health impact?
The ultimate aim of development is to improve the people’s lives. But no project should be shoved down people’s throats if the communities affected are staunchly against it. If we could bring back local government elections, councillors could at least be held accountable for giving the nod to the projects without the communities’ knowledge and approval.
Youtsh doing a Gangnam-style dance as a protest at the Raub rally on 3 Sept 2012.
Youths at the rally
Some may argue that it would be chaos if local governments started blocking state and federal development plans. I beg to disagree. If a development project does bring prosperity and a better quality of life to the rakyat, a responsible elected government, at any level, would not want to risk public outrage to sabotage it.

Ministry to test Bukit Koman folk for contaminants



PUTRAJAYA: The Health Ministry agrees that there is an “abnormal health issue” in Bukit Koman, according to a group campaigning against the use of cyanide in gold mining near the town.

The ministry would conduct a “patch test” on Bukit Koman residents this Monday, said Sherly Hue, who is vice-chairperson of the Ban Cyanide in Gold Mining Committee.

A patch test involves sticking a plaster on the body to check the presence of contaminants.

Hue was speaking today at a press conference following a two-hour meeting involving a delegation from her group and ministry officials.

The meeting was chaired by the director of the ministry’s Disease Control Unit, Dr Chong Chee Keong.

Residents of areas surrounding the Raub Australia Gold Mine in Bukit Koman claim that they are in ill health as a result of the use of cyanide there.

They have challenged the Department of Environment’s approval of a preliminary environmental impact assessment report by the miner, but have lost their case at the Court of Appeal.

Hue said her group was considering appointing their own experts to carry out a joint study with government experts.

“But we’ll wait for the ministry to come up with their protocol before deciding on the matter,” she said.

Hue’s committee will sit with ministry officials for another meeting next month.

Cyanide threat mere Pakatan propaganda, says Pahang MB

As all that glitters is not gold, the cyanide 'threat' to residents around Bukit Koman in Raub, brought by the Raub Australia Gold Mining (RAGM) plant, is merely an opposition political agenda.

Menteri Besar Adnan Yaakob told the Pahang state assembly the cyanide threat to the residents was no longer an environmental issue.

Rather, it had become political and sensationalised by the opposition, he said.

"The opposition has purposely used the issue as their propaganda. They have learned this from their 'sifu' (teacher), Adolf Hitler (dictatorial leader of World War II Germany's Nazi Party), who believed that the people would believe a lie, if it was frequently repeated.

"The RAGM issue is being played by the opposition just like the Lynas issue. These have become their problems. Politics becomes so ugly when there's a 'ghost' who masterminds the opposition pact's agendas," noted Adnan.

He was explaining the issue during question time at the sitting in Kuantan today.

Replying a supplementary question from Leong Ngah Ngah (DAP-Triang) on the cyanide threat alleged to have cause residents in Bukit Koman to suffer from skin rash, Adnan said the state government had carried out a survey on the matter, with cooperation from experts since 2009.

Earlier, Abdul Rahman Mohamad (BN-Padang Tengku) had also asked for detailed explanation and the exact number of residents who were suffering from skin rash, eye irritation and breathing problems, following the commencement of the RAGM operation.

To this, state local government, environment and health committee chairperson Hoh Khai Mun replied, a survey revealed that only 24.6 per cent of the residents suffered from such conditions.

"Generally, only 12 to 23 percent of them suffer from skin rash, headache (20 to 60 percent), watery eyes (four to 12 percent) and breathing problems (seven to 13 percent).

"The health ministry has adopted a specific approach by conducting a complete and systematic study to find the actual cause of the problems faced by the residents.

"A questionnaire is being prepared and will be distributed to the residents to obtain their direct feedback on the matter," he added.

MB: Isu Cyanide propaganda pembangkang



Menteri Besar Pahang merangkap bekas Ketua Kampung Bukit Koman (2009 - Jul 2012 ), Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob berkata ia bukan masalah alam sekitar sebaliknya isu politik yang sengaja digembar-gemburkan pembangkang.

“Pembangkang sengaja menggunakan isu ini sebagai propaganda mereka. Ini dipelajari pembangkang dari ‘sifu’ mereka Adolf Hitler yang percaya bahawa setiap pembohongan jika diulang, orang

akan percaya.

“Isu RAGM ini seperti juga isu Lynas, dimainkan pembangkang. Perkara ini yang menjadi masalah mereka. Politik menjadi teruk apabila ada ‘hantu-hantu’ yang menjadi dalang merencanakan agenda di sebalik pakatan pembangkang,” katanya.

反山埃运动领袖黄金雄先生今早11时被警方召见问话。这是他继902劳勿绿色集会以来在14天内第三度被召见。这次反山埃另一领袖丘惠豪也一起被召见。
劳勿警区主任已经声明劳勿绿色集会是个和平的集会。但为何警方屡屡采取行动,作出骚扰市民的动作?
他们不是罪犯,他们是捍卫家园,伸张环境正义的英雄!

Mahkamah Persekutuan tolak rayuan penduduk Bkt Koman

Bukit Koman residents have lost their last legal chance to force the Raub Australian Gold Mining Sdn Bhd (RAGMS) to conduct a Detailed Environmental Impact Assessment (DEIA).

This follows the Federal Court’s dismissal of their appeal to get leave for the case to be heard on its merits at the Kuala Lumpur High Court.

bukit koman mining site and wells 310107The five-member bench was led by Court of Appeal president Md Raus Sharif.

Justice Raus, the second-most senior judicial officer in the country, said they had deliberated on the matter and that their finding was unanimous.

“We find no reason to disturb the decision of the courts below and dismiss the appeal.

“We answer the question in the negative.”

The other judges were Federal Court judges Abdull Hamid Embong, Ahmad Ma’arop, Hasan Lah and Zaleha Zahari.
The question was whether a court in determining an application for extension of time to file a leave application, is required to consider the merits of the applicants' case.
Meanwhile, counsel for the residents, Malik Imtiaz Sarwar, argued that this was a matter of public interest where the courts below - High Court and Court of Appeal - did not order costs.

Despite this, justice Raus ordered the residents to pay costs of RM15,000.
 Filed out of time
The Bukit Koman residents in Raub had initially failed to obtain leave from the Kuala Lumpur High Court on June 1, 2009 when Justice Lau Bee Lan  had ruled that the residents had filed their application out of time.
Hence the question posed before the court was pertinent to the case for the residents to file an extension of time for their application and have it heard.

On March 21, 2008, Bukit Koman residents led by Wong Kim Hong, Chong Sow Pin, Hue Fui How, and Mustapha Hussin filed their judicial review application at the KL High Court on behalf of the residents, where they named the Department of Environment (DOE) and Raub Gold Mining as the respondents.

The residents are concerned over the alleged use of cyanide in extracting gold leftovers, and they were seeking several declarations namely:
  • They want the court to declare that the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report submitted by the mining company to the DOE in 1996 did not comply with certain requirements of the Environment Quality Act;
  • They are also seeking a certiorari order (to quash) the DOE’s approval of the preliminary EIA report;
  • They want a Detailed Environmental Impact Assessment (DEIA) to be ordered on the company;
  • A declaration that the developers must obtain a DEIA before proceeding with gold-mining works; and,
  • The residents also want the court to order the company to cease its operations until a DEIA is made.
The Court of Appeal had upheld the KL High Court’s decision on Aug 3, 2011.

‘Judicial review bid has ended’
RAGMS counsel Cecil Abraham said today’s decision meant that the judicial review application has ended.

NONEThe residents’ counsel, Malik Imtiaz, described the apex court's as "conservative".

“You can look at the Kampung Terentang case in Rawang (with Tenaga Nasional Bhd) and also this case,” he said.

The court, he said, was eventually saying in answering the question that "despite having merits as we have produced, if you are out of time in filing the application then the application is dismissed".

“You can look at the amount of work the residents did trying to get the EIA, which was produced in 1997, and then hire specialists to study it.
NONE"There was a lot of time spent, and we were late in filing it and (as such) they have dismissed it,” said Malik (left).

This, Malik said, was not a progressive judgment, but "despite this we respect the decision".
In his submission Malik pointed out that the EIA report was blatantly insufficient for the residents as the company should have been asked to conduct the DEIA.

He noted that despite claims made by RAGMS counsel that they had put up a notice of the EIA in 1997, the residents found it in only one English daily.
"There was a foul smell in the late afternoons, or evenings and this has caused respiratory problems."
Considering in filing a review
 However, Cecil objected to Malik reading the affidavit, saying that it would be prejudicial to his client and that was filed after the High Court decision.

Asked to comment on the next course of action for the residents, Malik said the residents have the option of filing a review of today's decision.
"That would be entirely up to them. The other option is for the residents to file personal action but that would be difficult as we have to challenge the EIA first which they were doing now," he said.

The Environmental Impact Assessment over the proposed project was undertaken by the company and approved by the Department of Environment in 1997.

However, sometime in 2006 when environmental group Sahabat Alam Malaysia stepped in, the residents received confirmation from the DOE on March 2007 that the project will go on.

Parties are required to file judicial review applications within 40 days of a decision.

The residents tried to look for the EIA report filed in 1997 and only found it on October 2007.

bukit koman gold mining cyanide 010207 lakeMalik had submitted that if the October 2007 date was taken into consideration, the residents were late in filing it within four months of the DOE letter and not 10 years.

“The residents sent the report to a specialist, who found that the project, in using cyanide, may endanger the ground water,” he said.

They filed the judicial review application on March 21, 2008 after getting the expert’s opinion.
 Residents came in two buses

Some 80 Bukit Koman residents arrived as early as 5am in two buses, only to return home dejected seven hours later. They were briefed by their lawyers as to what transpired and what the decision meant.

Chong Pui Han, 34, one of the residents said the residents cannot understand why the court could not rule for them in such a matter of public interest.

"All we are asking is for an extension of time for the matter to be heard properly. Since the company began its project in 2009, some 400 residents complained of health and respiratory problems.

"There are 3,000 residents in Bukit Koman and this is not only affecting Bukit Koman but also the surrounding kampungs nearby," she said

Hearing in Federal Court



A hearing in Federal Court will fall on 6-9-2012 (Thurday), 9:00am at Palace of Justice.

Please come to support us!

Background:
• 13 Jan 1997, DoE approved the PEIA submitted by RAGM without the residents’ knowledge.
• 4 Dec 2006, residents learned about the usage of cyanide in the nearby gold mine and formed the “Bukit Koman Action Committee Against the Use of Cyanide in Mining of Gold” (Committee).

• October 2007, after various effort and attempts, the residents finally got hold of the PEIA and appointed experts to review the documents.
• 21 March 2008, the Committee through its lawyers filed an application for leave for judicial review to request among others the following:
a) The setting aside of the approval of the PEIA given on 13-1-1997 by the Director General (DG) of the DoE;
b) The setting aside of the DG’s decision that a Detailed EIA is not necessary;
c) Submission of a fresh DEIA by RAGM including the requirement for public participation.
• 1 June 2009, High Court dismissed the application with no order as to costs on the ground: "The application for leave for judicial review should have been brought within 40 days from the date of the approval of the PEIA or the date the villagers knew about the approval of the PEIA."
• On 3August 2011, the Court of Appeal upheld the High Court decision in holding that the residents were out of time in seeking for leave for judicial review (the decision). The appeal was dismissed with no order as to costs.
• On 7 August 2011, the villagers decided to appeal to the Federal Court.
• On 11 Jan 2012, a three-man Federal Court panel chaired by the Chief Judge of Sabah and Sarawak Tan Sri Richard Malanjum allowed the residents' application for leave to appeal against the High Court's decision. The appeal will be heard by the Federal Court on 6 September 2012.

Gold mining company sues Malaysiakini, FMT

Raub Australian Gold Mining (RAGM) Sdn Bhd has initiated legal action against two news portals for defamation, just two days after Himpunan Hijau Raub rally.

The articles published by Malaysiakini and Free Malaysia Today had damaged its reputation, the company claimed in a press statement issued today.

bukit koman gold mining cyanide 010207 lakeRAGM said allegations that sodium cyanide used for gold extraction was hazardous to Bukit Koman residents are unsubstantiated.

"(These) baseless allegations have led to much confusion to people in and outside Bukit Koman. And on top of that, have caused damage to RAGM's reputation and name.

"We wish to state that we are compliant with all relevant laws and reiterate our commitment to ensure that all necessary safeguards are in place to ensure the safety of our employees, the local community and the environment vis-à-vis our operations.

"This commitment is a longstanding one and the company remains committed to upholding it," the statement says.
'Selective prosecution'

RAGM argued that its plant has operated using sodium cyanide for three years and there has been no report adduced by any medical expert or specialist to prove that their ailments were solely due to the chemical.
Villagers at a press conference on June 21 had revealed a study showing that 78 percent of the residents in the surrounding areas of the gold mine were suffering from health problems, believed to be related to the use of cyanide and other chemicals at the gold mine. 
Malaysiakini editor-in-chief Steven Gan has vowed to fight the lawsuit.

NONE“This is a case of selective persecution as we have been singled out for legal action when other media organisations have also reported the same issue extensively,” Gan said.

Malaysiakini reported the complaints of the Bukit Koman villagers in good faith, and it is incumbent upon us as journalists to report on such matters of public interest.”

RAGM has named MKini Dotcom Sdn Bhd and three of its journalists as defendants while MToday News Sdn Bhd and one of its journalists have been named as defendants in a separate suit.
On Sunday, a crowd of over 10,000 rallied in Raub to protest the use of cyanide by RAGM.

When Green rally became Green march



Rally organisers urge protestors to now march to the goldmine in Bukit Koman since Raub Australia Gold Mining Sdn Bhd failed to send any representatives to receive their protest note.

More than 10,000 at Raub protest: Najib can't even manage Pahang, what more M'sia?


More than 10,000 people began a march from the Raub sports complex in Pahang to the nearby Bukit Koman goldmine they alleged has been using cyanide to the detriment of their health.
The huge size of the crowd, which gathered spontaneously and voluntarily, signals the strength of public unhappiness at the manner in which Prime Minister Najib Razak has been accused of allowing hazardous industries to mushroom, even in his home state.
"The issue here is the use of cyanide and this complaint has been going on since 2007. There are now 2 major hotspots in Pahang that Naib must stand accountable for - the Lynas rare earth refinery and the Bukt Koman goldmine. If he cannot manage his own home state, no wonder the federal government and the economy are going to the dogs," PKR MP for Kuantan Fuziah Salleh told Malaysia Chronicle.
Deaf ears
Raub residents have been opposing the Raub Australia Gold Mining Sdn Bhd since 2007, even before the company began operations, but their lawsuits and appeals to Najib's BN government fell on deaf ears.
Fearing the miner's use of cyanide in its processes would affect their health, they have been organizing various protests culminating in Sunday's rally, where representatives from the goldmine were due to receive their memorandum of complaint.
However, after waiting for hours, no officer from the Raub Australia Gold Mining Sdn Bhd showed up, prompting the crowd to burst through a police cordon and attempt to march about a kilometre to the Buikt Koman mine. About 300 cops were on duty at the Raub sports complex.
Visibly upset and emotional, the crowd shouted 'Ban Cyanide' as they walked. But before they could reach the mine, the police with two junior Raub Australia reps in tow intercepted the organizers at the head of the procession.
The rally leaders agreed to stop the march and disperse the crowd after one copy of the memo was handed over to the reps and another to Raub district police chief Wan Mohd Samsudin Wan Osman for his onward transmission to the mine's president.
“Is it wrong for us to demand green policies? We don't think so. It is the corrupted and incompetent government policies that are wrong,”  said Wong Kin Hoong, head of the Ban Cyanide committee which organized the protest.
Severe skin ailments as Pahang becomes a "dump site"
Many of Raub's residents believe they are suffering ailments as a result of exposure to cyanide-laced fumes from the goldmine. Several 'victims' shared their experiences with the crowd that had begun gathering around 1pm for the latest Himpunan Hijau or Green Rally.
"It has been two years of suffering," said 62-year-old Chin Thian Hee, showing the crowd her bag containing various medication. Another resident Woon Soon Fatt said he had spent RM10,000 on medical expenses for his family of six who have been suffering severe skin problems.
In Gebeng, the residents there with help of 'green' activists have also mounted several huge rallies to pressure Najib's government to reverse its approval for a RM700mil rare earth plant.
PAS environmental bureau chief Zulkifli Mohd Omar, who was also present in Raub, blamed both the Pahang state government led by Adnan Yaakob and Najib's federal government for turning their backs on the Gebeng and Bukit Koman residents.
"Pahang has become a dump site. We have radioactive waste in Gebeng, toxic waste in Raub, and now even Tasik Chini is threatened."
Yen Yen missing in action: Are the people really so dumb?
Meanwhile, Najib's BN coalition have fought back, accusing the Green Rallies of being staged for political motives. MCA MP for Raub Ng Yen Yen was nowhere in sight during the entire afternoon. However, BN workers have put up several banners to criticise the protest.
"Oppose Himpunan Hijau Raub. Do not trouble the people of Raub trying to rest for the weekend," screamed one banner.
At the Himpunan Hijau rally held in Gebeng in May, more than 20,000 people attended. The huge crowds that have turned spontaneously at all the Green Rallies so far is a strong sign of societal change that Najib and BN would do well to take serious note of.
"Malaysians are not only becoming conscious of the environment and their health, but if Najib continues to disregard their worries and concerns and to dismiss these as Opposition ploys, then he is a fool and deserves to be kicked out of the government. When you have crowds like these, it would be very silly and most presumptuous to think that there can so many Malaysians who are dumb enough to be used as political tools by the Pakatan," PKR vice president Chua Jui Meng told Malaysia Chronicle.

Pesticides cause of ailments, not cyanide, says gold mine

Those who attended the Raub himpunan hijau rally, must read this story on what the gold mine company is doing on that very same day, they are doing PR exercise when we were waiting under the hot sun for their rep to come and receive our mem
orandum! The two media did not report on the rally but publish a big pix of fish feeding pix in the mining site.

出席劳勿绿色盛会的朋友一定要读这则新闻,当我们烈日当头在等金矿公司的代表来接收备忘录时,原来他们在忙着搞公关,邀请几家主流媒体记者去矿场内喂鱼证明没污染!这两家媒体没有报道集会的新闻,却登了一张大大喂鱼的照片!



 
While 15,000 people were gathering in Raub to protest against the use of cyanide in gold mining by miner Raub Australian Gold Mining (RAGM) yesterday, the company was having a public relations exercise by bringing members of certain mainstream media to visit the mining site.

The company claimed that the various diseases suffered by Bukit Koman residents were not caused by cyanide but pesticides or fertiliser used in their farming activities.

English daily New Straits Times quoted RAGM site supervisor Chai Kwe Yew as saying that it was only a minority group in the village who had accused the gold extracting facility of polluting the environment and endangering human lives.

Chai also said he was sad that the inaccurate information supplied by the villagers had prompted a response from environmental groups.

Villagers of Bukit Koman, where the mine is located, claimed that nearly 80 percent of the residents in surrounding areas were suffering health problems, which is believed to be related to the use of cyanide by RAGM. However, the Health Ministry says it cannot confirm this.

Yesterday’s rally at Raub was the culmination of five years of protest against the use of cyanide in the gold mine.

However, RAGM safety, health and environmental manager I Gayathri told New Strait Times that it was impossible for the plant to release such hazardous chemicals as the company had adopted stringent safety measures, with the Department of Environment (DOE) making monthly visits to the 120ha gold mine since it opened in February 2009.

“There are two gold mines in Sungai Koyan and Kuala Lipis but the residents there have never complained of any health problems,” she said.

Pond is home to thousands of fish

To back her claim, Gayathri added that a huge pond near the gold is also home to thousands of healthy fish including giant arapaimas.

Berita Harian, a Malay newspaper belonged to the same group which owns New Straits Times, also published a similar report.

It quoted Gayathri as denying the allegation that the gold mine has polluted the river flowing through Bukit Koman.

She explained that the Bukit Koman is located at the upstream while the gold mine is at the downstream, hence it is illogical to make the allegation.

According to her, DOE officers take water sample from the river and underground water sources at the mining site for inspection every month.

RAGM has also appointed external consultant to conduct quality studies to ensure its operation meets the standard set by DOE, said Gayathri.

She added that the gold mine has been operating since 1920s and it is one of the earliest gold mines in the country.

Both dailies published photos showing Gayathri and a man feeding fishes at a nearby river in Bukit Koman and a pond located in the gold mine respectively.

However, both reports did not address villagers’ demands including the request for RAGM to publish a contingency plan for the villagers in case of emergencies, such as accidents to the lorries carrying cyanide or leakage of hazardous chemicals.

Anti-cyanide rally turns into street march


RAUB (Sept 2, 2012): Thousands of anti-cyanide protesters clad in bright shades of green turned their rally into a street march after Raub Australian Gold Mine (RAGM) representatives failed to show up to receive their memorandum.
The sea of green flooded the streets as the protesters made their way to the gold mine from the Jalan Bukit Koman Sports Complex field, waving placards and flags.
Himpunan Hijau Raub (HHR) organising committee chairman Wong Kin Hoong said the organisers waited until 3:30pm for a representative from the mine operators to show up at the rally before mobilising the crowd to move towards the gold mine.
"A representative met us halfway on the road, but he was the chief of security and not a top executive as we had asked for.
"We handed over the memorandum to Raub district police chief Wan Mohd Samsudin Wan Osman, who said he would hand it over to the chairman of the company," Wong told a press conference after the rally ended at around 5pm.
"We are giving RAGM seven days to comply with our demands in the memorandum, failing which we may have another rally," he said.
Anti-cyanide protesters have been opposing the use of cyanide in gold mining for the past six years, claiming that many people have developed skin diseases and respiratory health issues since the mine began operations a decade ago.
"It is time the people stand up and fight; we are not going to give up on this and we will keep coming back until cyanide usage is stopped," Wong said.
HHR vice-chairman Sherly Hue reiterated that the NGO is not against mining or profit-making, but said the people's health must not be compromised in the process.
"We sent invitation letters to Raub MP Datuk Seri Ng Yen Yen as well as Pahang Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob, but they did not show up," she said.
Describing the rally as a success, Hue said: "There were around 15,000 people from all over the country who had come, and we hope this sends a signal to the government to act fairly and in the interest of the people."
The crowd began trickling in before noon to pick shady spots on the open field, and by 2pm some 5,000 people had gathered.
It was a carnival-like atmosphere, and many food stalls had sprung up along the trail leading to the field and free water was being distributed to rally-goers.
More than 10 speakers from various NGOs and political parties spoke during the two-hour rally, calling for an end to the use of cyanide or a full shutdown of the mine, to the cheers and claps of the enthusiastic crowd.
Among those who addressed the crowds were Bersih 2.0 steering committee member Maria Chin Abdullah, opposition leader Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Parti Sosialis Malaysia deputy president. M. Sarasvathy, Save Malaysia Stop Lynas chairman Tan Bun Teet, and PAS information chief Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man.
Meanwhile, Wan Samsudin said the rally was largely peaceful and the light police presence was in order to direct traffic and maintain order.
"To rally is a guaranteed right of the people under the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012.
"We will hold a post-mortem analysis with the HHR committee to analyse the rally and identify ways to improve any future public gatherings," he said.
He also said he would forward the protestors' memorandum to RAGM "very soon".

Penduduk dihantui masalah gatal kulit

Woon dan keluarga tinggal berdekatan dengan lombong emas Bukit Koman.

Woon sekeluarga (6 ahli keluarga) mempunyai masalah gatal kulit setengah tahun selepas lombong emas RAGM mula beroperasi pada Feb 2009. Woon pula sering rasa pening kepala, sesak nafas dan kelesuan... Beliau pernah berhenti kerja selama beberapa bulan akibat masalah kesihatan.

Kos rawatan beliau sekeluarga dalam 3 tahun ini melebihi RM10,000. Memandangkan beliau hanya seorang pembaiki motosikal, kos rawatan tinggi ini menjadi satu beban berat yang terpaksa ditanggung olehnya.

Beliau teringin sangat nak pindah ke tempat lain demi masa depan anak-anak kesayangannya tapi keadaan ekonomi tidak mengizinkan...

Adalah pindah dari kampung halaman tersayang merupakan alternatif terakhir untuk mengelakkan diri kita daripada ancaman pencemaran?

TIDAK!!!! Mereka yang tidak beretika dan tidak berperikemanusiaan sahaja yang patut berambus!

Penduduk Raub memohon kehadiran dan sokongan anda ke Himpunan Hijau Raub pada 2hb September, di Padang Kompleks Sukan Raub. Mari kita berganding bahu untuk menyelamatkan generasi muda kita! Jumpa di Raub!

Sembayang Bulan Hantu







Mengikut adat resam Cina, hari ke-13 bulan ke-7 dalam kalendar qamari bergelar Hari Hantu dan bulan ketujuh secara amnya dianggap sebagai Bulan Hantu (鬼月).
 

Adat biasa yang dijalankan pada bulan ini termasuk menyediakan persembahan makanan secara ritual, pembakaran wang neraka dan bungkusan yang mengandungi kain untuk memberi penghormatan kepada roh-roh leluhur yang menziarah, iaitu sebagai tanda melayan orang yang telah meninggal, seolah-olah mereka masih hidup.

Penduduk-penduduk yang tinggal berhampiran dengan lombong emas RAGM menjalankan sembahan ini di hadapan RAGM setiap tahun untuk memohon supaya diberkati roh leluhur....Berdoa agar lombong emas kehabisan emas, kilang emas kotor dapat ditutup dengan secepat mungkin, barulah penduduk tidak lagi dihantui kekhuatiran, ketakutan dan hidup sihat.

一年一度劳勿澳洲金矿门前祭祀, 祈求亡灵庇佑,金矿黄金化水,矿厂关闭,人民才有好日子过。。。

1984 Bhopal Disaster


The Bhopal disaster or Bhopal gas tragedy was an industrial disaster that took place at a Union Carbide pesticide plant in the Indian city of Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh. At midnight on 3 December 1984, the plant accidentally released methyl isocyanate (MIC) gas, exposing more than 500,000 people to MIC and other chemicals. The first official immediate death toll was 2,259. The government of Madhya Pra
desh has confirmed a total of 3,787 deaths related to the gas release. Others estimate 8,000-10,000 died within 72 hours and 25,000 have since died from gas-related diseases.

博帕尔事件发生于1984年12月3日凌晨,印度中央邦的博帕尔市(Bhopal)美国联合碳化物(Union Carbide)属下的联合碳化物(印度)有限公司(UCIL),设于博帕尔贫民区附近一所农药厂发生氰化物泄漏事件。当时有二千多名博帕尔贫民区居民即时丧命,后来更有两万人死于这次灾难,二十多世博帕尔居民因而永久残废,现时当地居民的患癌率及儿童夭折率,仍然因这些灾难远比其他印度城市为高。

劳勿绿色集会记招




Perjumpaan Akhbar Himpunan Hijau Raub
Rentak himpunan hijau tidak berhenti lantaran selepas Himpunan Hijau 226 dan Bersih 428, satu lagi himpunan hijau bakal dilangsungkan bagi membantah perlombongan emas di Raub Pahang.

Himpunan Hijau ini dianjurkan oleh Ahli jawatankuasa Antisianida atas sokongan Himpunan Hijau yang menamai himpunan ini sebagai "Himpunan Hijau Raub" yang akan dijalankan di Padang Besar, Raub pada 2hn September ( 902 ).
Menurut penasihatnya Tam Hui Chun, perhimpunan ini dianggarkan seramai 20,000 orang akan menyertainya. 
Yang turut hadir semasa pengumuman ini dibuat adalah wakil-wakil dari PKR iaitu Naib Pengerusi DAP, Chan Kok Wai dan wakil Parti Islam, Zulkifli Mohd Omar yang juga merupakan Pengarah Jabatan Alam Sekitar.
Memandangkan pada 2hb Sept jatuh pada Hari Raya Puasa, maka Zukifli akan mencadangkan kepada Pengerusi Parti Islam Pahang Tuan Ibrahim semoga pada hari tersebut, satu majlis Hari Raya turut diadakan bagi menarik lebih ramai ahli parti untuk mneyertainya. Harapan dengan adanya majlis Hari Raya ini, lebih ramai orang akan hadir untuk menyokongnya.

Chan Kok Wai berharap Himpunan Hijau Raub mampu memperoleh kejayaan seperti Himpunan 226 Kuantan agar dapat memberi tekanan kepada kerajaan bagi memperhentikan segala projek berbahaya.
Di samping itu, himpunan ini bermatlamat untuk menyampaikan mesej tegas kami bahawa bukan 3000 orang penduduk tempatan sahaja yang mengalami ancaman kesihatan, tetapi ramai di antara rakyat seluruh negara  memberi prihatin terhadap isu yang serius ini.

Pihak berkuasa akan menghubungi pihak polis tentang himpunan ini secara formal dan mengikut tatacaranya namun sehingga kini tindakan ini belum dilakukan.


Semoga dengan himpunan hijau ini akan mampu memberi kesan dan mesej yang jelas kepada kerajaan dalam hal melindungi hak rakyat dan bukan semata-mata untuk memajukan negara tetapi kebajikan rakyat dikecualikan.

绿色集会脚步不停歇,继226绿色盛会2.0与428黄绿大集会后,公民社会今日宣布发起另一场绿色集会,反对彭亨州劳勿的山埃采金。

这场活动是由武吉公满反山埃行动委员会所主办,获得绿色盛会的支持,名为“劳勿绿色集会”。

主办单位今午在隆雪华堂召开记者会宣布,这场“劳勿绿色集会”将会在9月2日下午2点,于彭亨劳勿大草场举行。

反山埃委员会顾问陈慧君展望这场集会,将会获得至少2万人参与。

伊党集会地点庆开斋

出席记者会的民联领袖包括行动党副主席陈国伟与伊斯兰党环境局主任祖基菲里(Zulkifli Mohd Omar)都表明,将全力支持“劳勿绿色集会”,同时将动员全国各地的党员出席。

由于9月2日碰到开斋月,祖基菲里将向伊党彭州主席端依布拉欣建议,伊党当天在彭亨劳勿大草场举办开斋节宴会,以吸引更多的党员出席。

“我们将会在那里庆祝开斋,举办‘门户开放’活动,越多人来越好。”

陈国伟希望,劳勿绿色集会将能如226绿色盛会般取得巨大成功,进而迫使政府腰斩毒害计划。

居民面对皮肤病症状
陈惠君说,主办单位希望通过这场集会,向相关单位传达一个强烈的讯息,即除了3000名深受其害的居民外,全国各地的民众都关注武吉公满的山埃采金课题。

主办单位将根据程序,通知警方举办集会,但目前还未接洽警方。

主办单位在声明中表示,自从劳勿澳洲金矿公司采用山埃采金以来,已经超过了3年或1000天,金矿公司虽然赚取暴利,但却毫不理会担惊受怕的劳勿,特别是武吉公满居民。

他们重申,许多居民的健康都受到山埃采金影响,面对皮肤病与持续咳嗽等症状。

“更甚的是,所有向有关当局的投诉都如石沉大海。他们也没有任何行动证明金矿场安全。”

炮轰金矿场毫无操守
他们炮轰政府,不理居民的投诉,坚持让金矿场操作,导致居民在这3年来饱受打压与误导。

“这些都必须停止!我们不反对企业赚钱,但这家金矿场的运作毫无操守,污染了环境与伤害我们的生命。”

不过,他们强调,就算前路满是荆棘,他们也将坚持斗争,以确保所有人可以无惧地过着健康生活。

“让我们一起为绿色的未来努力,生命凌驾于利益!拒绝污秽黄金!”

尝试联络甘代耀不果
其他出席记者会者,包括了隆雪华堂民权委员会主席廖国华、万挠反对逼迁工委会主席吴亚九、劳勿绿色集会顾问巴钦义、行动党彭州主席梁金福、雪州行政议员刘天球及泗岩沫国会议员林立迎等。

针对这场集会,《当今大马》尝试联络目前人在英国伦敦的劳勿澳洲金矿公司拥有人甘代耀,以寻求回应,唯不果。

《当今大马》也发手机短讯给甘代耀询问,但他并没回复。

武吉公满村民此前自行进行的健康调查发现,78.1%的周遭居民面对至少一种健康问题,怀疑是山埃采金所致。随后,卫生部长廖中莱宣布,同意立即调动该部门医疗队伍,为金矿周边居民进行详细健康检验,以鉴定居民的健康状况。

警方登门调查武吉公满病患,試圖製造白色恐怖

 Penyiasatan Polis terhadap penduduk tempatan

Tiga orang polis Daerah Raub mengadakan siasatan di rumah En.Woon Soon Fatt( 36 tahun ) pada 26hb kira-kira pukul 11pagi, iaitu salah seorang penduduk tempatan yang diancam penyakit kulit dipercayai akibat perlombongan emas dengan sianida. Pihak polis mengatakan bahawa mereka menerima laporan tentang 383 orang penduduk tempatan yang menerima temu bual kesihatan,maka mereka perlu membuat siasatan dan berharap Woon Soon Fatt akan mengumumkan semua penduduk lain yang terlibat. Namun En. Woon menolak dengan alasan dia tidak jelas dengan maklumat tentang penduduk berkaitan.

Pihak polis melemparkan soalan-soalan seperti pernakah anda melihat Sianida? Bagaiman rupanya Sianida? Anda tidak pernah melihat sianida, bagaimana anda dapat pastikan penyakit kulit anda disebabkan oleh Sianida? Pekerja di kilang lombong tidak mengalami masalah, mengapa pula anda sekeluarga yang menghadapinya? Perjumpaan akhbar sebelum ini di Kuala Lumpur diatur oleh siapa? Siapa pula yang membela segala bayaran anda? 

Menurut En. Woon, pihak polis cuba memberitahunya agar masalah kesihatan yang dihadapi tiada kaitan dengan Sianida. Mereka juga memberi maklum balas tentang bau yang terbebas adalah daripada bahan racun serangga manakala bintik-bintik kuning adalah akibat perubahan suhu. 

Seorang lagi anggota polis juga mengunjungi rumah Hew Ah Ngiow ( 58tahun), iaitu penduduk Bukit Koman yang juga menghadiri perjumpaan akhbar di Kuala Lumpur tempoh hari itu. Pihak polis menyediakan dua salinan laporan dan perlu ditandatangani oleh mereka berdua.

Berikutan dengan kunjungan polis ke penduduk tempatan ini, Ahli Jawatankuasa Antisianida percaya bahawa tindakan pihak polis ini bertujuan untuk menimbulkan kekeliruan dan seterusnya membawa ancaman psikologi kepada penduduk agar tidak lagi memberi sebarang kenyataan atau lebih kepada konsep" Tutup Mulut"

Pihak kerajaan dan pihak berkaitan mahu penduduk Bukit Koman menunjukkan bukti yang jelas bagi membuktikan masalah kesihatan mereka adalah berpunca daripada Sianida. Walau bagaimanapun, di sebaliknya pihak berkaitan juga tidak dapat menjelaskan isu-isu kesihatan yang dialami oleh penduduk tempatan semenjak operasi kilang emas adalah langsung tiada kaitan dengan perlombongan emas dengan Sianida  

Pihak polis seharusnya melindungi keselamatan rakyat dan bukannya memberi tekanan secara psikologi. Misi Jawatankuasa Antisianida tidak berteraskan politik mahupun antikerajaan, sebaliknya bertujuan untuk mempertahankan hak kebajikan rakyat tempatan.  Dengan itu berharap, pihak kerajaan akan bertindak secara adil dan saksama dengan mengutamakan hakikat tentang ancaman kesihatan akibat Sianida terhadap penduduk.

警方登门调查武吉公满病患,試圖製造白色恐怖

劳勿区3名警员于26日上午11时前往武吉公满其中一病患溫顺发

(36岁)住家进行长达一个小时的盘问。警员声称接获投报,所以得对383名接受健康调查的村民进行调查, 并要求温先生公布所有病患姓名资料, 惟后者以不清楚所有受访者资料为由拒绝。

警员登门调查病患

过 程中,警员除了询问温先生的病情之外, 发问的问题包括: “ 你有看过山埃吗? 山埃是怎样的? ”, “你没见过山埃, 怎能确定皮肤病是由山埃引起?” , “金矿员工都没有健康问题, 怎么你一家六口却有健康问题?” 等. 警员也询及6月20日在吉隆坡隆雪华堂召開的记者招待会是由谁安
排, 为什么温先生要前往, 有没有人付费等.

温先生透露, 警员试图说服他健康问题无关山埃采金, 以”处处传来异味是因为有人喷射农药”,”树叶黄点斑斑是因为气
候变化”来回应他的投诉, 因此他质疑警方立场根本不够中立.

另外, 警员也在现场对另一名有出席隆雪华堂记招的病患邱亚牛(58岁)
进行类似盘问, 较后警方打印两份”口供”要求两人签名.

质疑制造白色恐怖

针对警方上门调查病患事件, 反山埃委员会质疑警方借辞制造白色恐怖, 企图让病患”封口”.

日前发發布的村民健康调查报告显示,有80%的受调查者表示身体
出现超过一种健康问题的症状,包括超过50巴仙的人出现皮肤病状及眼疾,可是至今卫生部或环境部仍未曾对病患进行慰问和治療, 反而由警方介入调查, 用意何在?

政府和相关部门往往要村民出示具体证据,以证明健康问题是山埃采
金所致,然而相关单位却无法解释村民在金矿操作之后健康大受影响的原因,更无法证明这些状况与山埃采金无关.

警方是保护人民维持治安的执法单位, 委员会希望警方不会再有越权或打压村民的事件发生。反对山埃采金
的宗旨出于保护环境保护生态及下一代的生命健康安全,无关政治亦并非反政府,希望政府和相关单位保持中立, 切切实实的探讨山埃采金带来的祸害以保全村民的健康。

勞勿反山埃采金委员会(28/7/2012)

About Me |简介

Kami adalah penduduk yang dilahirkan dan dibesarkan di Bukit Koman, Raub. Sememangnya, kami seharusnya dapat menikmati rahmat yang ditakdirkan, iaitu tinggal dengan aman. Namun, ketenteraman dan kesihatan penduduk tergugat apabila apabila lombong emas yang bersebelahan dengan rumah kediaman kami mengguna Sodium Cyanide dalam perlombongan. Ratusan penduduk mengadu tentang masalah kesihatan dalam tempoh 1 bulan selepas lombong emas mula beroperasi pada Febuari 2009. Kami tidak dapat lagi bertoleransi dengan ancaman ini. Untuk menjamin keselamatan ahli keluarga tersayang dan masa depan generasi kami yang akan datang, kami sanggup melakukan apa sahaja demi mempertahankan keamanan dan keselamatan kampung halaman kami. 我们是在劳勿武吉公满土生土长数十年的普通居民。本已到了知天命之年,奈何眼见挚爱的家园因为山埃的入侵,面临沦为“毒村”的致命威胁,我们决定站出来,抗战到底!为了我们爱惜的家人,为了我们的下一代,背水一战,决不妥协!
