Protest against iron ore operation of Vale in Malaysia

Mon,02 Apr2012

About 100 members of Jaringan Aktivis Alam Sekitar Perak JAASP, an environmental non governmental organization, staged a demonstration against the operation of an iron ore processing company, Vale SA, in Teluk Rubiah, Seri Manjung near here.

They claimed the operation had destroyed the environment in the area.

It is also reported that 4 Socialist Party of Malaysiamembers were detained by the police in Perak on their way to a protest against Vale’s iron ore processing plant in Lumut. They were released an hour later, after police took down their personal details and mobile numbers.

Vale is spending RM 4 billion in the first phase of the project, which will handle 30 million tonnes of iron ore yearly once completed in 2014.

The hub in Lumut, Perak will be able to accommodate Chinamax carriers, which are 400,000-tonne iron ore vessels that will cut freight costs for Vale.
