Stop Lynas Toxic Waste Dump

Tuesday, 23 March 2021 - 8:30am to 9:00am

Lynas Rare Earth is proposing to dump over 1 million tons of radioactive waste in landfill in the pristine tropical rainforest near the city of Kuantan in Malaysia. The forest reserve at Bukit Ketam is linked to the water catchment that supplies water to over 90% of the population in Kuantan. Lynas has submitted a massive environmental impact assessment to the Malaysian authorities, which is light on safeguards and seeks to carve out the forest for its dump.


On today’s program, Lee Tan, an activist with Aid Watch, currently working to stop the waste dump.
