CAP calls for a #BetterDigitalWorld 2017

CAP calls for a #BetterDigitalWorld in ensuring the safety of internet users in conjunction with this year’s Consumers World Day theme as proposed by Consumers International, “Consumer Rights in the Digital Age”.

In the digital world today, everything is at the tip of our fingers. However, do we as consumers ensure the safety of our “wellbeing” in the digital world? Over the years, there were many cases from online fraud, data stealing to becoming hubs for immoral activities despite the growing efforts from the government and bodies to ensure optimal cyber security.


Pollution of Sungai Pahang, Tasik Chini and Tasik Mentiga

Sahabat Alam Malaysia (SAM) urges the Pahang government to stop logging and mining activities in the state to curb the worsening problem of pollution of the Pahang River, Tasik  Chini and Tasik Mentiga in the district of Pekan.  

The problem that has persisted for more than 20 years does not only affect the water catchment and water supply for more than 10,000 Felda Chini settlers and communities in the surrounding areas but also the livelihood of the Orang Asli communities in the district whose source of income has been affected.
