PHSKLU FIRST PHASE

Press conference: Coalition Defend Kuala Langat Utara Forest Reserve 29/10/20

Have you sent an email to your ADUN / MP?

According to our activists working in the legal sector, pressing your elected representatives, namely ADUN / MP, is the easiest way for the public to oppress the Selangor state government.

 

The gazetting of the Kuala Langat Utara Forest Reserve is contrary to many local, state and national plans. 5.5 million tonnes of carbon will be released - how does that reflect to Malaysia's Paris Agreement obligation to REDUCE carbon emissions?

 

This 8000-year-old forest is one of the last peat swamp forests of its kind in southern Selangor and serves as a natural flood barrier. This is our existing natural structure to help us adapt to the impact of climate crises such as floods and droughts.

 

Why is the Selangor Menteri Besar interested in degazetting this forest at the height of the pandemic? - to build more elite housing areas or mixed development? Selangor already has an overdevelopment problem, will this revive the economy in this time of pandemic?

 

The Indigenous people of Temuan have already said - enough is enough, according to Shaq Koyok. The size of this forest has shrunk by more than 90% since it was first gazetted. In several generations, the Temuan community in Selangor has been relocated numerous times, and their right to own and self govern have been denied !

 

The Coalition for the Defense of the Kuala Langat Utara Forest Reserve (PHSKLU) in the first phase of the campaign, is urging members of the public to pressure their ADUN / MP to state their stand and represent the will of the people. Nearly 45,000 letters of protest were sent to the Selangor Menteri Besar earlier this year.
