The 24-deadline has long passed. I wish people don't promise something that they cannot deliver. It was an empty threat. Who is going to believe that Najib will be alarmed or even worried about being confronted with a bigger anti-Lynas demo? Defijnitely, not him! If there's trouble, he will just order the police, the FRU and maybe, even Rela to intervene! Or like in Penang, just send in the gorillas – they are UMNO's rapid deployment troops.
Bersih 2.0 co-chairperson Ambiga Sreenevasan who spoke at Sunday's anti-Lynas rally, told protestors "when you vote, you can reject candidates who support Lynas". Do you really think enough people care about Lynas outside of the Gebeng-Kuantan area? Already, BN believes that the Lynas issue may, at the most, impact on just two parliamentary seats in Pahang (i.e. Kuantan and Indera Mahkota) and therefore, it will not affect BN's chances in the next election. What's more, the said marginal parliamentary seats are with the opposition anyway. So please know that Najib is not going to shutter Lynas any time soon!
By the way, the Lynas Corp website (http://www.lynascorp.com/) is still down!

In Syria, the bloodshed continues unabated. What devils move Bashar al-Assad to murder his own people with impunity? I guess lives are cheap when dictators like him want to hold onto power at all costs!
