Today, My Heart Sinks for My Fellow Malaysians

After five decades in power, one economic policy after another under the Barisan Nasional, there are a few groups of people that I believe have been left out in our development.  While I am frustrated with the BN governance, I myself am guilty of being ignorant and indifferent at times. 

As I read these statistics, my heart sinks and tears flow, and I shall remember how I felt today for the rest of my life in politics. Today, I am determined to do this: never, never shall I see statistics as numbers and forget that these numbers represent the PEOPLE, my fellow Malaysians, the very individuals that deserve life, liberty, and the right to pursue happiness.

BN, stop importing pollution to Malaysia!

After importing Lynas plant rejected by the Australian government, the BN government has once again proved itself a poor steward of Malaysia's environment by rushing into importing a petrochemical plant that was rejected by the Taiwanese government! Just like the Pahang government for Lynas, the Johor government is now considering the constructions of Kuokuang Petrochemical Tehnology Co plant. This project, which involves a petroleum refinery complex and a naphtha cracker, was scrapped by Ma Ying-Jeou government in 2011 in its own homeland because of environmental concerns. Just like what's shown in the picture below, it has been literally sent by the Taiwanese to Malaysian shore and received with an open arm by Datuk Sri Najib's government in Pengerang Integrated Petroleum Complex (PIPC)! How sad!
