CONSUMERIST: INTIMIDATING THE RAAYAT WITH MOBS, THUGS, GOONS AND AGENT PROVOCATEURS?

Dato Jacob George

‘As one senior politician pointed out to me and said:

‘Each time these political morons and idiots do this we lose thousands of votes nationwide by default!

It is now a culture, a norm rather than the exception to see such thuggery in action whenever there are opposition or civil society gatherings and forums!’ – Dr Jacob George

CONSUMERIST: INTIMIDATING THE RAAYAT WITH MOBS, THUGS, GOONS AND AGENT PROVOCATEURS?

One senior international diplomat commanding great respect in the international fora said this to me last night:

‘Malaysia is experiencing a real political dilemma where you have hypocrites preaching 1Malaysia and yet cannot distinguish between duties as head of a political entity and that of the present ruling government!

I acknowledge that there are characters, finch groups similar these political thugs and shenanigans in the US and certainly, Europe!

We are not proud of the Neo-Nazis or the Ku Klux Klan, the skin heads, the fascist and other white supremacy groups either.

But here these groups are looked down upon, rejected by mainstream political parties, the civil society, the police and law enforcement groups and agencies.

But in Malaysia you were all well respected once!

But now based on all recent attacks either in Selangor, Johor, Pahang, Penang or Perak rightly or wrongly, the wide perception here among the diplomatic community, rightly or wrongly,  is your thugs and extremist operate with the full financial and moral backing and encouragement of a dominant political party!’

I now fully agree that if mainstream politicians, war lords and political shenanigans think they are doing the federal government and Barisan Nasional (BN) a favour with such childish, thuggish and violent provocation stunts they are sadly mistaken!

As one senior BN politician pointed out to me:

‘Each time these political morons and idiots do this we lose thousands of votes nationwide by default!’

It is now a culture, a norm rather than the exception to see such thuggery in action whenever there are opposition or civil society gatherings and forums!

They now burn pictures of prominent social activists, throw cocktails bombs on opponents homes, cars, they throw stones, disturb and disrupt gatherings, they shout vulgarities!

And so I am not the lest surprised at the embarrassing and thuggish behavior of over 50 morons at the Penang leg of solidarity gatherings for the Himpunan Hijau 2.0 rally in Kuantan which saw – disruptions!

The hostile group have been identified and I am now advised that there are photo evidence and recording that clearly identifies the individuals!

I will now SMS Penang’s top cop a dear friend informing him that this is an embarrassment when no such behavior was ever recorded elsewhere!

Perhaps their ‘identity crisis’ and loss of free flowing income for doing nothing has hurt the mental thinking capacity of these morons to think constructively at the damage they are inflicting on Premier Najib Tun Razak political agenda prior GE13!

It is sad and regrettable that Himpunan Hijau supporters gathering at the Penang Esplanade were met by this hostile group.

When one cannot win arguments and lays exposed as a fraud – they send in the goons, the thugs, the racists and the ultras to muddy the waters and turn it into a class or race war!

They began provoking, inciting, uttering seditious utterances, vulgarities to create turmoil!

Two journalist were assaulted and this is not the first time such behavior has been recorded!

NONEPoliticians should realize that engaging or employing thugs to disrupt peaceful assembly will only reinforce the will of the people to lead and live change. It is encouraging to witness increased consciousness and the willingness of people of all racial and religious persuasions to now voice their feelings and opinions in the open without any fear anymore!

Basically it is this – the more these rascals and hooligans disrupt civil liberties and the attacks go viral as it has, even in the international media – , the more resolute will the Malaysian voters, even those sitting on the fence and many cases, some supporters reject Barisan Nasional in the next general election unless action is taken on them!

Failing which BN will be rejected!

CONSUMERIST: WHO PROTECTS PUBLIC INTEREST IN MALAYSIA?

Dato Jacob George

‘Since there is confusion on who is actually protecting public interest in Malaysia, in view recent abuses, be they the MAS scandal, takeovers, mergers and acquisitions, bail outs, NFC and other monstrous corrupt practices, Malaysian voters may need to use their precious vote to send in a signal at GE13 that such vulgar behavior will not be tolerated in Malaysia any longer!’ – Dr Jacob George

CONSUMERIST: WHO PROTECTS PUBLIC INTEREST IN MALAYSIA?

When one watches how issues of grave importance both from a standpoint of transparency, accountability, good governance or public interest is handled they should not and would not be surprised that already there is an attempts to mount a legal challenge against the Atomic Energy Licensing Board (AELB) in awarding a temporary operational license (TOL) to Lynas!

When one cannot win arguments and lays exposed as a fraud – they send in the goons, the thugs, the racists and the ultras to muddy the waters and turn it into a class or race war!

And it has happened from the time we addressed the UEM case which laid a vulgar foundation for public interest challenges!

I am not the lest surprised at this!

This is how predictable some individuals and public officials have become.

There is confusion who actually stands for ‘checks and balances’ and public interest?

Something that we can still learn from the British and the Americans!

And it worked until GE12 opened the mindsets and eyes of a large cross section of Malaysians in the Peninsula, Sabah and Sarawak!

The politically enlightened man in the street is already saying in view of the bullish and arrogant statements so far being made, Lynas will be allowed to operate in this country at all cost!

Many have also indicated and alleged like other multi billion ringgit projects and procurements – ‘a lot of money must have changed hands legally and illegally.’

Since there is confusion on who is actually protecting public interest in Malaysia, in view recent abuses, be they the MAS scandal, takeovers, mergers and acquisitions, bail outs, NFC and other monstrous corrupt practices, Malaysian voters may need to use their precious vote to send in a signal at GE13 that such vulgar behavior will not be tolerated in Malaysia any longer!

CONSUMERIST: LYNAS PROTEST- ENGAGE AUSTRALIANS AND THEIR CIVIL SOCIETY!

Dato Jacob George

‘I am surprised that instead of ‘proactive and positive’ engagement Lynas Executive Chairman Nicholas Curtis indulges in political rhetoric so common, among our rubbished politicians!

It is not for Nicholas to dismiss Kuantan MP Fuziah Salleh’s view as only one view within or to state that the opposition party PAS party supported the Lynas plant or any other such arguments.

It is also not for an Australian to preach to us Malaysians, what is stable for foreign direct investment in Malaysia!

Let me remind him that we got rid of our colonial masters way back in 1957!’ – Dr Jacob George

 

CONSUMERIST: LYNAS PROTEST- ENGAGE AUSTRALIANS AND THEIR CIVIL SOCIETY!

Big mistake really big for Australia’s Lynas Corp to warn against any move by Malaysia’s political opposition to shut the company’s $200 million rare earths processing plant, saying that such action would deter other foreign investment in the country!

First of all this has nothing to do with opposition politics like Lynas may want us to believe!

The history of the Malaysian struggle led by NGOs and the civil society groups against hazardous, life, environmental wrecking and threatening industry started decades ago when we took on Asia Rare Earth in Perak!

Yes, I should know as my many colleagues in Penang then and I were ‘part and parcel’ of that struggle!

I am surprised that instead of proactive and positive engagement Lynas Executive Chairman Nicholas Curtis indulges in political rhetoric so common among our rubbished politicians!

It is not for Nicholas to dismiss Kuantan MP Fuziah Salleh’s view as only one view within or to state that the opposition party PAS party supported the Lynas plant.

It is also not for an Australian to preach to us Malaysians what is stable for foreign direct investment in Malaysia!

Let me remind him that we got rid of our colonial masters way back in 1957!

Of course I am aware that we have many Malaysian politicians who behave worse than our former colonial masters and more Arab than the Arabs hypocritically!

But that argument is for another day!

But let me remind Lynas operatives, their political and business sympathizers and benefactors that the massive presence of Malaysians of all walks of life, races, religious creeds, political affirmations and age group difference show how wrong it was both ethically, legally and by convention for the Malaysia’s Atomic Energy Licensing Board (AELB) to prematurely give the plant a temporary permit to operate in late January.

The backlash against Lynas continued in several cities nationwide against the plant in Kuantan town in the state of Pahang, 195 kilometers east of Kuala Lumpur.

Of course we are not stupid to realize that Lynas expects to process up to 22,000 tons of rare earths annually, or about 20 per cent of the world market, at the Malaysian facility scheduled to start operation later this year.

It hopes to generate some 8 billion ringgit (2.66 billion dollars) in annual revenues.

The firm also took arrogant stunts and seemed to have taken the upper hand in its struggle to operate the facility after Malaysia’s Atomic Energy Licensing Board (AELB) gave the plant a temporary permit to operate in late January.

But the residents also refused to back down without a fight and asked the Court of Appeals to review and reverse the board’s decision.

The plaintiffs say radioactive waste from the 200-million-dollar facility poses environmental risks and hazards to human health.

Their concern was not without basis as I pointed out after a rare-earth facility in the northern state of Perak, operated by a unit of Japanese Mitsubishi chemicals, was closed down in 1992 amid accusations that it had caused birth defects and leukaemia to nearby residents and workers.

That facility became one of Asia’s largest radioactive waste cleanup sites, and the Japanese company spent more than 100 million dollars to clean up the mess. But as expected of corporate and industry arrogance, like pariah Bhopal before them it denied responsibility for the health problems suffered by the residents.

One would have thought that based on the extensive documents and information available on such ‘trafficking of hazardous industry’ Malaysia’s Atomic Energy Licensing Board (AELB) would have had the moral and ethical courage to stand by the people!

It is ironic but a fact that Australian legislation stipulates that Australia will not accept responsibility for any waste product produced from offshore processing of resources purchased in Australia such as iron ore, mineral sands and the rare earth produced by Lynas Corporation!

In fact, this has been confirmed by Norman Moore, Western Australian Minister for Mines and Petroleum!

So I am curious why Malaysia’s Raja Abdul Aziz Raja Adnan, AELB director-general, continued to rally on the board’s decision, saying returning the waste to Australia was part of a number of options, if not the ultimate, final resort.

We are also told they also have Plan B, C and D in place!

Really that efficient and professional, Mr DG?

Can you care to make these now public in view of the massive public interest already shown by over 20,000 Malaysians in Kuantan, Pahang and few other thousands in other major Malaysian states!

Can we have some transparent engagement and discourse on facts and allow the civil society and the community who will bear the blunt of it all, WHEN not IF there is an contamination, exposure certainly NOT politicians on a very fragile political lease to decide the next course of action or engaged thugs, rascals and hooligans (above) provoking, inciting, uttering seditious utterances, vulgarities to create turmoil to disrupt civil liberties and peaceful assembly and the will of the enlightened Malaysian people and voters!

CONSUMERIST: LYNAS MSM TOLD GET YOUR FACTS/MATHS RIGHT!

Dato Jacob George

CONSUMERIST: MSM TOLD GET YOUR FACTS/MATHS RIGHT! 

The picture below does it look like just 3000 even from this narrow limited angle?

Malaysian’s have to forgive our mainstream media, their owner barons and super horrific carrying editors for getting all screwed up with the facts as they appear on the ground in Kuantan, Pahang!

It is difficult to change habits entrenched!

After all hunting with the hounds and running with the hares is a culture they have adopted quite well and now part and parcel of their editorial policies and DNA!

Now they say 3000 people are here?

Really?

In fact, I would go further to say that we have over 20,000 Malaysians of all races, religions and ages coming together to voice their support and deep anxiety and concern against this vulgar industry!

Lynas Advanced Materials Plant (Lamp) should be shut down in the public interest – period!

Let us look at it as an expression of concern that cuts across all generations, age groups, religious and racial lines to address a mess created by greedy, intelligence displaced and obsolete politicians, industry, lobbyist and shenanigans who have screwed it up for us any way!

As far as the media goes – no wonder your circulation is fast dropping!

THIS IS NO FICTION! OVER 20,000 PEOPLE SHOW UP IN SUPPORT!
THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING! PRAY COMMON SENSE PREVAILS!

CONSUMERIST: LYNAS PROTEST FESTIVITY – IGP & POLICE LAUDED!

Dato Jacob George

‘My dear friends in blue are now urged to chill and even join in the festivity of peaceful protest!

Let us look at it as an expression of concern that cuts across all generations, age groups, religious and racial lines to address a mess created by greedy, intelligence displaced and obsolete politicians, industry, lobbyist and shenanigans who have screwed it up for us any way!’ – Dr Jacob George

CONSUMERIST: LYNAS PROTEST FESTIVITY – IGP & POLICE LAUDED!

We are all aware of the provisions of the newly minted Peaceful Assembly Act 2011!

We are also aware with great feelings of joy and respect that the Police have sanctioned the rally albeit conditions which is expected.

They have done well and I applaud the Kuantan district police chief Mohd Jasmani Yusof in the professional manner he and his men have handled this occasion and request!

I am also aware of the pressure they were under from many quarters but at the end of it all they are carrying out their duties and responsibilities in a professional manner that makes huge promise for the future!

In fact, I want to go on record congratulating the IGP for the proactive changes and engagement he is instilling in the Police Force to get close to the communities and to work alongside them both in their struggles and joys!

Yes as I walkabout here I cannot but praise the Almighty for a great day ahead it is nice and warm and certainly an air of festivity all around!

I am certain there are far more than 20,000 people here in this rally which is dubbed Himpunan Hijau 2.0 (Green Gathering 2.0) which is now significant for Putrajaya to take cognizance of the outright rejection of any industry that threatens both human and the environment for generations!

The occasion has started rightfully with prayers, poems and each and everything you expect at a festivity!

My dear friends in blue are now urged to chill and even join in the festivity of peaceful protest!

Let us look at it as an expression of concern that cuts across all generations, age groups, religious and racial lines to address a mess created by greedy, intelligence displaced and obsolete politicians, industry, lobbyist and shenanigans who have screwed it up for us any way!
