“The people will never retreat a single-step nor tolerate stagnancy. We will continue to push forward. Our second wave of people’s actions shall kick-off immediately!” said Wong Tack, chairperson of Himpunan Hijau.

The Himpunan Hijau steering committee has decided to kick start a Himpunan Hijau ‘BLOCKADE’ campaign straightaway. As we have promised, the people will not allow a single ounce of the Lynas’ ores to reach our shores.

“We’ll bring together tens of thousands of people from across the nation to send the shipment of Lynas’ toxic ores back to Australia,” said Wong Tack.

A special task force has been formed to drive the ‘BLOCKADE’ campaign. This special task force will ensure that the nation will be ready on the day the Lynas’ ores are approaching our shores. This campaign will choke the Kuantan Port and paralyse the entire operation of the port. It will definitely cause serious adverse economic repercussions to the entire East Coast region. It is a choice to face a temporary short term economic pain or permanently letting the future of this town being buried in the darkness of radioactive pollutions. It is now up to the authorities to decide.

“The next Himpunan Hijau will be called by Lynas,” exclaimed Wong.

At a meeting last night, the Himpunan Hijau steering committee has given the task to organize the ‘BLOCKADE’ campaign to a highly charged second echelon of young local leaders. Ten young men and women have courageously stepped forward to spearhead this campaign. More will join in later to form a well represented and powerful task force. Active work will start immediately to build a strong alliance of environmental comrades nationwide.

The Himpunan Hijau steering committee strongly believes that the future of this country belongs to youth. This is the time for them to step forward to uphold the right to protect their future.

Said Wong Tack, “For more than a year, responsible Malaysians have came forward, himpunan after himpunan, in the most peaceful manner to request the authorities to respect their rights and listen to their voices.

“But up until now, the only response from the authorities were gimmicks after gimmicks, one stupid and illogical statement after another. They continued to derail the issue, mislead, suppress, ignore and belittle the people’s intelligence.”

At this moment, the anger is boiling within the community.

“We, as the leaders of Himpunan Hijau have done our very best to contain the anger within the masses. We foresee that anger will be uncontrollable when the ores reach our shores,” concluded Wong Tack.

The authorities and Lynas should bear the whole responsibility on all eventualities due to their actions or inactions.

Sabah Environmental Protection Association had organized a forum about Sustainable Agriculture and Regeneration of Environment. Two speakers are Hisanori Asami from EM Research Organization (Thailand) and T.Sawada Director of Syntropy Malaysia Sdn Bhd an expert from Japan.

T.Sawada assured that the EM (Effective Microorganisms) has no risk to the environment as it is locally produce with local material of each country. The risk of it become dominion is not an issue as it is an anaerobic microbe that that not require oxygen for growth. It could possibly react negatively and may even die if oxygen is present.

Furthermore, the use of microorganism is not new concept as the application already been seen in food and drinks fermentation process such as wine, tapai, kimchi and others that can bring benefits to body health.

EM potentially can attract the neutral microorganisms (known as opportunity organism) and turn it to good organism to get rid the bad organism in the river ecosystem that cause by the pollution of waste disposal by industries and household.

The successful application of EM to solve the salt pollution after tsunami and flood has gain trust among the farmers and Thai Government and it was now used to clean up the radioactive radiation after the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant disaster in Japan.

Preliminary result had shown the improvement in lowering the radiation level in farm land and those who has been using EM on their soil has shown no radiation effect on their land. Mr Sawada explained, that it is due to the EM deionization nature to purified water and gravitation waves to neutralize the waste radiation emission.

Wong Tack the President of SEPA would like to thank the sponsor, Silverrado Corporation Sdn Bhd for their hospitability to sponsor and host it at their restaurant and also the speakers and those who came to the forum.

Forum on Sustainable Agriculture and Regeneration of Environment


05. June 2012 · Comments Off on SEPA will hold a forum about Sustainable Agriculture and Regeneration of Environment‏ · Categories: News & Updates

SEPA will hold a forum about Sustainable Agriculture and Regeneration of Environment‏ on 7th Jun 2012, 1.30 pm to 4.30 pm at Kampung Nelayan, Puteri VIP Room, Bukit Padang.

The speaker Mr Hisanori Asami is the Regional Manager of Asia Pacific, EMRO (EM research Organization) based in Bangkok Thailand.

He holds a Master of Science degree in Horticulture from University of Ryukyus, Okinawa, Japan.

Mr. Hisanori Asami is a student of Dr. Teruo Higa. Dr. Teruo Higa discovered EM and developed EM technology for sustainable agriculture and environment conservation.

The public is invited to attend this forum for free and learn from Mr Hisanori Asami on his experience in promoting the EM technology in farming.

His effort to promote EM technology has been a success especially in Thailand where it has been given recognition by the Thai government.

The success of this technology is spreading among the neighboring countries around Southeast Asia such as Malaysia, Philippine and Indonesia.

Mr Hisanori Asami’s visit to Sabah is a good opportunity for the local farmers and planters to learn and adapt this technology to keep our environment safe and sustainable.

SEPA would like to thank Silverrado Corporation Sdn Bhd for sponsoring the event location and refreshments during the forum.

Please confirm your attendance at FB event page at link – FORUM : Sustainable Agriculture and Regeneration of Environment

Backstory of EM Technology

EM™ is a coined from the words “Effective Microorganisms™” by Professor Dr. Teruo Higa, who developed EM™. EM™ consists of a wide variety of effective, beneficial and non-pathogenic microorganisms produced through a natural process and not chemically synthesized or genetically engineered. It comes in a liquid form.

EM™ has a broad application. EM™ has no adverse effects on and is beneficial to plants, animals, and humans. Very simply put, EM™ lives off our waste while we live off “their waste”. Their waste simply translates to a healthy environment for us in which EM™ becomes inactivated, therefore, a mutual existence can be had. EM™ only creates the condition for best results, that is, the users should nurture the condition and provide the resources for EM™ to perform optimally. Microorganisms exist naturally throughout the environment from rock crevices to our internal organs. In our present day environment, putrefactive microorganisms, those types responsible for the rotting of organic matter to maladies in organisms, dominate much of the sphere of the microorganisms.

EM™ has the potential, given the conditions, to suppress the putrefactive microorganisms and dominate this sphere and creates re-animated surroundings, that is, organics are transformed through the process of fermentation as opposed to putrefaction, and living organisms, as well as, inorganic materials are enabled with the means to impede deterioration. Deterioration is here meant the activity of active oxygen or free-radicals through which organisms degenerate and inorganic materials corrode, as in iron rusting. EM™ can thus, also, be considered as an antioxidant.
