抨警察骚扰反核人民 查尔斯吁政府弃核电

【本刊记者撰述】巴生港口人民星期天走上街头反核电,却遭警方大阵仗守候盘检,让巴生国会议员查尔斯(Charles Santiago)不禁痛批,纳吉所谓的"人民优先"根本都是空话。他且沉重提醒国阵政府,我国应该就地取材,发展我国可资使用的再生能源,绝非发展核电厂。

昨日早晨,查尔斯组织反对核电厂的人民聚集在巴生港口集会抗议,警方也在现场周遭布置超过百名警力,封路拦检,一一检查路过车辆,盘问过路人为何出现现场。
查尔斯因此调侃说:"任何在星期天来到巴生港口的人可能都以为那里发生政变。"
组织这场游行的查尔斯强调,参与游行的民众根本不似警方守持武器,"只是拿着布条要求政府停建两间可能耗资马币213亿的核电厂,希望政府聆听人民的声音。"
不屈服于警察选择性执法
这名民主行动党国会议员指出,首相纳吉总是到处宣传其"人民优先",但事实上,那些步行至抗议现场的民众却因警方的骚扰被迫折返。"或许纳吉只有在公众意见与他唱和时才愿意聆听之。"

他在文告中表示:"警方的流氓、骚扰行径实在可耻,他们不能总是为巫统政治人物服务。"查尔斯(左图)举例说,当有人在巴生北区警局外抗议成立皇家调查委员会,调查疑涉及在野党领袖安华的情色短片案时,警方只是一只眼睁一只眼闭,显然存在双重标准
他痛批我国政府与警察从未学得教训,"人民不会屈服于他们的选择性执法。"
与此同时,他也重申,我国绝对不能接受兴建高风险的核电厂,"核电厂乃最危险的人造物之一,仅次于核子弹。所以,我认为马来西亚政府执意建造核电厂,不管其长久的核灾风险实际上是种刑事罪刑。"
辐射污染影响大
查 尔斯提醒国阵中央政府,日本福岛核电厂自宫城九级地震与海啸引发核灾至今,已经投入数十亿元救灾,但事情况未见好转,"因地震与海啸死亡的尸体依然横躺在 大地上,收尸意味着把自己暴露在辐射污染当中。就算把尸体火化,其烟灰依然会扩散辐射物质。假设就让尸体自然分解,尸体还是会污染土壤。"
远的不说,查尔斯举例霹雳州万里望亚洲稀土厂带来的污染,至少有八宗血癌案例与该场核辐射污染直接相关。
"核电厂的游说者告诉我们核电是干净、可以减少温室气体排放的能源,但这个说法在马来西亚一点也不合情合理,我们还有其他再生能源的选择。"所以,查尔斯希望我国政府可以重新检视兴建核电厂之需要。

Govt should listen to anti-nuke protesters

April 4, 2011

The police intimidation against peaceful protesters yesterday disproves Najib’s ‘people first’ campaign, says Charles Santiago.

COMMENT

By Charles Santiago

Anyone coming to Port Klang on Sunday morning (April 3, 2011) would have thought a coup was in place. Hundreds of policemen walked around with stern faces, cars were checked and people were questioned as to why they were at the vicinity.

In reality, the people were there to protest against the construction of nuclear power plants in the country – a plan that the government is trying to bulldoze through with as little transparency as possible.

We were not armed with sophisticated weapons but held banners calling on the government to stop its plans to build the two 1,000-megawatt nuclear plants at the possible cost of RM21.3 billion by 2021 and instead listen to peoples' opinion on this matter.

Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak has been trumpeting his "people first" campaign. But the ground reality is that the people, who were walking to the protest venue, were forced to turn back due to the harassment from the police.

Maybe Najib would listen to public opinion only if it tangos with his own.

I have said this in the past and I am repeating this here – police gangsterism and intimidation are shameless behavior. The police cannot keep going to the mat for Umno politicians.

For example, a protest outside the Klang Utara police station demanding a Royal Commission of Inquiry to investigate the alleged sex video of opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim was allowed to go on.

This stinks of double standards and mobilizing the huge number of policemen to aggressively pressure the protesters to turn back is a sheer waste of public resources.

Criminal act

What the government and police have not learnt is that the people would not be cowed down by their selective persecution. The lobby against the nuclear power plants would go on as it is an unacceptable risk to humanity and the environment.

Nuclear power plants are the most dangerous creations of men, next to nuclear warheads. Therefore, I consider it a criminal act on the part of the Malaysian government to insist on building the plants despite strong indications that risks from nuclear disasters are real and long-lasting.

Billions of dollars swayed the president and four top executives of the Tokyo Electronic Power Co (Tepco) to fake safety data over its nuclear reactors.

Likewise corruption is rampant in Umno and clearly the government's plans to construct the nuclear plants are unaccountable and riddled with lies.

The Malaysian government cannot be taken in by the rosy picture painted by nuclear lobbyists. And neither should the possible kickbacks be an inspiration to go ahead with the construction that would contribute to the creation of tens of thousands of lethal, high-level radioactive waste and result in another Fukushima or Chernobyl.

Three of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactors exploded following the recent earthquake and radiation exposure continue to be a concern for the workers at the devastated nuclear facility.

And Japan seems to be losing the battle to save the fourth nuclear reactor.

The bodies of hundreds killed by the earthquake and tsunami is still lying unrecovered as retrieving them would mean exposure to toxic levels of radiation. If the bodies are cremated, the smoke could spread radioactive material. If they are left to decompose, the bodies would contaminate the soil with radioactive material.

According to medical experts, Ukraine, Russia and Belarus have seen a huge increase in childhood cancer since the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986. The region has also been burdened with the continuing decontamination and healthcare costs.

Thirty one deaths were directly attributed to the Chernobyl explosions. The World Health Organization suggests that the number of deaths potentially resulting from the accident could reach 4,000 while a Greenpeace report puts it at 200,000.

Renewable energy options

Closer to home, at least eight leukemia cases were linked to exposure to radiation from the Asian Rare Earth factory in Menglembu, Perak.

Nuclear lobbyists tell us that nuclear energy is clean and could help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. But this argument does not hold water and more so in Malaysia as we are yet to explore renewable energy options as a way of working towards energy efficiency.

The government must look at viable options like using the local renewable energy sources such as geothermal, wind and solar to ensure a sustainable transition for a developing country like ours.

This would provide affordable and secure energy supply and increase human well-being without fossil fuels.

A global move would also create eight million jobs in the renewables sector by 2020.

Najib has said that he would consult the relevant bodies and people before making a conclusive decision. The premier has also indicated that he is still in the midst of reviewing the nuclear project.

We all know that these are mere words used to hood-wink the people. But the people are clear. They do not want nuclear facilities in the country.

And therefore my Pakatan Rakyat colleagues and I would continue working together with the rakyat to exert pressure on the government to abort this idea.

Polis mengenakan sekatan jalan untuk menghalang sebuah perhimpunan anjuran Pakatan Rakyat bagi membantah rancangan kerajaan persekutuan membina loji nuklear RM22 bilion di Pulau Ketam Selangor.

Kekangan polis itu bagaimanapun gagal menghalang ahli parlimen Klang Charles Santiago dan puluhan orang lain untuk berkumpul di sebuah dewan orang ramai bagi meluahkan bantahan mereka terhadap projek loji itu yang mencetuskan keresahan orang ramai.

Kami percaya loji nuklear tidak selamat seperti di Fukushima, Jepun dan memberi impak kepada kesihatan rakyat adalah serius,” kata Santiago membacakan apa yang dikenali sebagai Deklarasi Klang.

“Kami cadang kerajaan beri fokus kepada tenaga boleh baru untuk tampung keperluan tenaga negara dan kami tak percaya propaganda kerajaan pusat bahawa tenaga nuklear adalah bersih, efisien dan selamat. Dan akhir kami minta kerajaan Pakatan Rakyat Selangor tidak membenarkan pembinaan loji di Selangor,” katanya yang membaca deklarasi itu di hadapan wakil media.

Sejak awal pagi, kira-kira 100 anggota polis mengadakan kawalan ketat di sekitar jeti Pulau Ketam bagi menghalang tunjuk perasaan itu yang mendapat sokongan pelbagai parti politik dan pertubuhan alam sekitar.

Penganjur kemudian mengambil keputusan untuk mengalihkan majlis ke sebuah dewan orang ramai yang berhampiran.

“Rancangan kerajaan sekarang ialah pada tahun 2021 dan 2022 ialah untuk bina loji nuklear di Malaysia. dan loji itu termasuk dalam program ekonomi kita,

“Kosnya RM 22 billion, tapi ikut masa, mungkin naik ke RM50 bilion,” katanya.

Tindakan polis itu menyebabkan ramai pihak dapat menyertai perhimpunan ini untuk meluahkan rasa kesal terhadap projek loji nuklear berkenaan.

Pimpinan Pakatan Rakyat bersama-sama Pertubuhan Bukan Kerajaan mengadakan Protes membantah sebarang usaha Kerajaan Persekutuan membina Loji Nuklear di Klang.

Protes yang di ketuai oleh Ahli Parlimen Klang Charles Santiago terpaksa bergerak ke Dewan Pelabuhan Klang setelah Polis mengeluarkan amaran.

Mengikut Charles Santiago, pulau-pulau berhampiran Pelabuhan Klang mempunyai ciri-ciri yang diperlukan untuk membina loji nuklear.

Beliau turut mengeluarkan Deklerasi Klang yang antaranya meminta Kerajaan  Persekutuan untuk mencari sumber tenaga “Boleh Guna” sambil meminta Kerajaan Selangor menghalang sebarang usaha membina loji nuklear di negeri ini.

Peserta -peserta protes berpendapat:
a)  jika Jambatan MRR2 boleh retak apatah lagi logi nuklear binaan Kroni UMNO
b) Mengutuk tindakan polis menghalang rakyat Malaysia menunaikan hak bersuara seperti termaktub dalam Perlembagaan Persekutuan
c) Kerajaan mengambil hampir 15 tahun untuk membina “Light House” di laluan masuk utama Kapal di Pelabuhan Klang. Bayangkan pembinaan loji nuklear
d) anggaran kos pembinaa loji nuklear mungkin akan mencapai 50 billion
