Kelau Dam & Pahang-Selangor Water Transfer Tunnel Stop Destructive Project Petition

This is a petition to stop the wanton destruction of precious flora and fauna at the proposed Kelau Dam Project which is endangering irreplaceable tropical plants, insects, wild animals and destroy the ancestral lands of our Orang Asli communities living there and deprive them from what they own and have been protecting since time immemorial.

I ask that the Minister in charge of this important heritage of our nation do what he can within his power and authority to cancel this destructive and unnecessary project.

I reproduce herewith the online petition by those of us who are concerned citizens and friends of the Orang Asli to make our objections known to this destructive initiative by those who are only interested in making themselves filthy rich at the cost of so many and those precious flora and fauna that can't speak for themselves!

YAB ,

Let's invest in more cost-efficient and sustainable sources of water supply for Selangor and the Klang Valley. Stop the wastage and stop the Kelau Dam & Pahang-Selangor Water Transfer Tunnel.

As members of the public, we the undersigned, together with the Centre for Orang Asli Concerns (COAC), Consumers Association of Penang (CAP), Sahabat Alam Malaysia (SAM), Save Our Sungei Selangor (SOS Selangor), and Treat Every Environment Special S/B (TrEES) have a number of shared concerns over the Kelau Dam and Pahang-Selangor Inter-State Raw Water Transfer project.

Based on research and reviews of the Detailed Environmental Impact Assessment Study Final Report: The Proposed Raw Water Transfer Project from Pahang D.M. to Selangor D.E. Malaysia (Vol 1: Part 1 and Part 2 and Supplementary Report), and other information related to the project, there are serious misgivings of the project from economic, water demand, environmental and social standpoints.

We would like to ask the Ministry of Energy, Water and Communications and all other related government agencies, both federal and state, to invest in more cost-efficient, sustainable sources of water supply for Selangor, the Klang Valley, and other urban areas.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

The Undersigned

This is what I signed:
Preserve and conserve the precious irreplaceable flora and fauna of our beloved nation. The Orang Asli and their lands must not be victimized by those whom the people have elected and trusted to take care of them and conserve their heritage. Fear Allah and stop this destructive project. May those responsible cancel this unnecessary wanton destruction of our life giving tropical forests and prove to us that those of you who are in temporal power and authority really deserve to be there? Thank you.
