Stop Lynas: Malaysians protest at corporate HQ in Sydney

July 5, 2011 – A delegation of 12 Malaysians held a protest outside the Australian company Lynas’ HQ in Sydney against its construction of the world’s largest rare earth refinery in the industrial estate of Gebeng, near the port of Kuantan. There is growing opposition because the refinery will leave highly toxic and radioactive behind. A previous rare earths refinery in Bukit Merah (operated by Mitsubishi, now a significant shareholder in Lynas) was forced to close down and clean up after a 12-year-long struggle by residents and environmental activists.
