0

Some 250 fishermen and several activists from Penang and Perak marched to Parliament this morning to hand over a protest memo to government leaders over the massive three-island project in Penang and extensive sand-mining in the waters off Perak.

They sang protest chants as they marched from the National Monument to Parliament this morning to hand in a memo opposing these environmentally damaging projects.
