Malaysiakini - 2,000 hadiri 'himpunan' hijau Kuantan





Kira-kira 2,000 membanjiri pantai Taman Gelora, Kuantan bagi memberikan menyatakan bantahan terhadap pembinaan loji nadir bumi di Gebeng. Dinamakan "Himpunan Hijau 109", penhimpunan itu dipendekkan oleh anggota polis yang menghalang penceremah membuat ucapan. 109 kuantan green solidarity 091011 03Permit berhimpun dalam program NGO alam sekitar itu ditarik balik malam tadi ekoran terdapat program khidmat negara. Bagaimanapun pagi ini, mereka tetap berkumpula mulai jam 8.30 pagi di bawah pemerhatian kira-kira 50 anggota polis. Orang ramai kelihatan enggan berganjak dan membina perisai manusia tetapi selepas ditolak polis polis mereka menjadi marah dan mula mengebu serta meneriakkan slogan "Hidup rakyat". Ketua Polis Daerah Kuantan Mohd jasmani Yusof bagaimanapun tetap menegaskan supaya orang ramai bersurai.

Malaysiakini - Police disrupt 2,000-strong green rally


Police disrupt 2,000-strong 'Green Rally'

Police interference failed to dampen the spirit of the "Green Solidarity 109" rally as some 2,000 participants thronged the beach at Taman Gelora, Kuantan, in support of communities threatened by the destruction of their environmental.

109 kuantan green solidarity 091011 04The rally was cut short by half an hour after police moved in to prevent its speakers from making their speeches.

Organised by a coalition of environmental NGOs, the event had initially been granted a permit but it was withdrawn last night in favour of a national service event.

Local council officers moved in on the same night to dismantle all tents set up by rally organisers on the premise that the structures were "illegal".

109 kuantan green solidarity 091011 17"In a democratic country, the people have the right to stand together to express our views. We are so disappointed that they withdrew our permit. This is not right," said Sabah Environment Protection Association (SEPA) president Wong Tack.

Despite the 'illegal' status, the rally was allowed to proceed by the beach until 8.30am under the watchful eyes of some 50 police officers, after which the latter moved in to stop the speakers as additional Light Strike Force units manned the beach.

The police appeared to back down after supporters quickly formed a human shield to stop their advance, but later pushed their way through after a phone call.

109 kuantan green solidarity 091011 14The angry crowd began to boo the police followed by shouts of "Hidup rakyat!" but Kuantan OCPD Mohd Jasmani Yusof insisted that the rally disperse.

"Listen to me Fuziah, listen to me," he told Kuantan MP Fuziah Salleh, who then concurred as the situation became heated.

Earlier participants who found their intended spot occupied decided to move to the beach, but organisers were baffled as camping tents had oddly sprouted there overnight. A check inside the tents found all of them to be empty.

Earth Charter endorsed

Undaunted, the crowd lined the beach as early as 6am in a symbolic welcoming of the sunrise. The first streak of light on the horizon was welcomed with the beating of traditional drums of various ethnic communities.

ambigaAmong prominent figure present were electoral reform group Bersih 2.0 chief Ambiga Sreenevasan (right) and its steering committee member Maria Chin Abdullah, who lent their strength to today's gathering, exactly three months after its own landmark rally on July 9.

Also in sight were Teratai state assemblyperson Jenice Lee, Tras state assemblyperson Chong Siew Onn and even Australia’s Green Party MP Robin Chapple.

However a group of pro-rally MCA supporters led by Teruntum state assemblyperson Chang Hong Seong piqued the interest of some among the crowd when they put up a banner indicating that the Indera Mahkota MCA Youth division was there to show its support.

Not to be outdone, a group of DAP supporters marched in front of them with their own banner, to the amusement of the photographers who were clicking away at the MCA supporters.

Environmental activists and supporters gathered under the banner of the Earth Charter to put the national spotlight on their concerns.

The Earth Charter is an international declaration by global civil societies of values and principles directed at sustainable development and responsibility towards the environment.

109 kuantan green solidarity 091011 11Participants were led to spirited chants of "Hidup rakyat! Hancur Lynas! Balik Lynas!" (long live the people, down with Lynas, go back Lynas), as observers from the Bar Council and Malaysian Human Rights Comission (Suhakam) watched on.

The crowd also performed "Suara Rakyat" as the song "Keranamu Malaysia" was blasted on a loop at the national service event a stone's throw away.

Commotion from nearby event

They roared when Fuziah arrived but cheers quickly turned to yells when a group of youngsters from the nearby event came over and started pushing event supporters.

Police, however, moved quicky to separate both groups.

109 kuantan green solidarity 091011 03A glance at the various trademark T-shirts donned by participants revealed a visibly diverse crowd representing several environmental controversies that have made headlines in recent years but have yet seen resolution.

Among the more notable ones was a black T-shirt with a red cross over a radioactive symbol, a trademark of the Save Malaysia, Stop Lynas (SMSL) movement, the local group that has vociferously opposed the construction of the Lynas rare earth processing plant due to radiation fears, no more than 30km north from where they stood.

109 kuantan green solidarity 091011 13Other anti-Lynas groups included the Stop Lynas Coalition and the Badan Bertindak anti Rare Earth Refinery (Badar).

Also not to be outdone were the Bukit Koman activists from Raub, donning their trademark green t-shirts. The group has been on a war path against gold mining in their community, with its activists arguing that the cyanide used for the mining is poisoning them.

Other notable groups were activists opposing the construction of high tension cables across their village from Rawang, and Orang Asli groups - proudly wearing their traditional headgear - protesting the destruction of their lands by logging and other activities.

109 kuantan green solidarity 091011 08The participants were armed with various banners expressing their respective concerns, such as: "No toxic cyanide", Lynas get out!" "Life above profit!" and "We protest against TNB high tension cables!"

A group also held up super-sized comic figures of Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak carrying a pair of skulls encased in jars, and his wife, Rosmah Mansor gowned with necklace, chains and earrings made out of a string radioactive badges.

Later the crowd sat by the beach to recite the Earth Charter pledge followed by the singing of the national anthem and speeches from representatives from several environmentalist groups.

The massive crowd took about 30 minutes to disperse in an orderly manner under the hawk eyes of the police.

当今大马 - 无惧警临时取消准证拆除舞台 两千人赴109绿色盛会反公害


大马反公害运动大结合,逾2000人今日清晨聚首关丹哥罗乐公园(Taman Gelora),出席“109绿色盛会” 联署《地球宪章》,齐声向公害说“不”。

不过,他们在聚会过程不断受到有关当局阻扰,关丹市政厅和警方昨晚就临时取消活动的集会准证,同时也拆除他们的舞台。

警方今日更出动轻装镇暴队,以非法集会为由强行介入这场活动,导致活动被逼提早办小时结束。

今早6点到公园集会


109 kuantan green solidarity 091011 01这场活动的出席者大多来自全国各地的反公害团体、社运分子和政党,以及关丹当地响应反莱纳斯稀土厂的居民。

他们自今早6点起,便陆续前往哥罗乐公园的沙滩响应这场大集会。

然而,警方也闻风而至当场驻守,不过他们没有阻止参与集会者进入公园范围。

前一晚强行拆下舞台


主办单位成员沙巴环保协会主席黄德指出,警方与关丹市政厅日前已经发出集会准证,但昨晚却以让路给其他团体举办活动为由,最后一分钟取消了他们的准证。

他在集会现场告诉媒体,市政厅昨晚更拆掉主办单位早已在哥罗乐公园搭好的舞台。

国民服务在旁办活动

109 kuantan green solidarity 091011 04这场“109绿色盛会”原本是在早上9点结束,但关丹警区主任莫哈末加斯马尼(Mohd Jasmani Yusof,右图)却强行介入,要求活动在8点30分提早结束。

根据现场观察,一个国民服务营同时在集会旁举办活动。

加斯马尼是在各个反公害团体轮流致词时,要求群众立刻解散。虽然公正党关丹国会议员傅芝雅和社会主义党总秘书阿鲁仄万尝试谈判,但最终宣告失败。

人潮向警方报以嘘声


109 kuantan green solidarity 091011 05尽管如此,在警方要求解散后,人潮并没马上离开,更在现场唱起马来歌“Rasa Sayang”,及对警方报以嘘声,在9点许才缓缓离开。

黄德声称,由于今早仍有不少人勇敢地来到现场出席集会,因此宣告活动成功进行。

以下是“109绿色盛会”活动现场照片:
