72 year old enters 20th day of hunger strike against Lynas

In case you are still won­der­ing, Lynas is pretty much shap­ing up to be one of the worst cases of endan­ger­ment to the envir­on­ment and human health in Malay­sian his­tory.

It was a shame BN could not to ejec­ted from the seat of gov­ern­ment to stop this atro­city due to con­veni­ent delin­eations of seats. At least one per­son has decided to risk his life in protest of this uneth­ical exper­i­ment on human health.

Namanya Tuw Yin Lan, umurnya 72 tahun dan beliau sudah 20 hari tidak makan.

Dan beliau bertindak mogok lapar ker­ana mahu pro­jek kon­tro­versi Lynas dan per­lom­bongan emas di Bukit Koman dihentikan segera.

Men­urut Ketua Pemuda Dewan Per­him­punan China Kuala Lum­pur dan Selangor (KLSCAH) Robert Lua Khang Wei, keadaan Tuw kini semakin kurus dan lemah.

Jikalau ker­a­jaan BN betul-betul ber­prinsip rakyat didahu­lukan, ia harus segera men­zi­arahi Puan Tuw Yin Lan dan mendengar per­mintaan beliau,” kata Robert sam­bil memuji per­juan­gan Tuw ter­hadap demokrasi dan hak asasi.

Dalam kenyataannya petang semalam, Pemuda KLSCAH juga menyeru seluruh rakyat Malay­sia serta pel­ba­gai parti dan organ­isasi mem­beri per­ha­tian dan sokongan kepada Tuw.

Kesi­hatan beliau harus dibela dan per­mintaan beliau harus ditunaikan,” katanya lagi.

Sejak 26 April lalu, Tuw hanya minum air terus ber­ta­han hidup.

For non-Malay speak­ers, 72-year-old Tuw Yin Lan has been on a hun­ger strike since the 26th of April this year. He has only been drink­ing water to stay alive.

Obvi­ously, main­stream media will be delib­er­ately obli­vi­ous to his mes­sage, and he will have risked his life for noth­ing. It is down to the rest of us to ensure his mes­sage reaches the rest of Malaysia.
