Over 8,200 Residents Object to the Degazettement

In just over 10 days, volunteers and concerned citizens helped the Coalition for the Protection of the Selangor State Park collect 8,260 signatures, demonstrating residents' objection to the proposed degazettement of forest reserves and the alignment of the KLORR-Eastern Route (EKVE) through these forests.
On 27 March 2014, a group of 20 representatives from the Coalition*, together with a representative from the Residents Association of Taman Melawati, gathered at the main lobby of the Bangunan SUK, Shah Alam to hand over the signatures collected to date.
During that handing over event, the Coalition submitted 7,292 signatures together with 207 individual objection letters to the Selangor State Government, objecting to the proposed degazettement of forest reserves and the alignment of the EKVE through these forests.  It was amazing work by everyone involved!
Original copies of the petition and individual letters were submitted to the director of Forestry Selangor, Tuan. Haji Yusoff B. Muda, while copies of the petition and individual letters were submitted to:
Representative from the MB’s office
- Tuan Haji Yasid bin Bidin,
Ketua Setiausaha Sulit Kepada Dato’ Menteri Besar Selangor
Representative from YB Elizabeth Wong's office
- Mr Danny Chan
From 28 - 30 March, an additional 968 signatures were submitted to the state government via the Selangor Forestry Department.  Also another 33 individual letters were submitted.  Furthermore, another 200 over individual objection letters were also submitted directly to the state government throughout the objection period, through the Coalition's drive.
The Selangor State Government has given no supporting argument as to why this area should be degazetted, and how these forests are no longer required as forest reserve, water catchment or as state park.  
We sincerely hope that the Selangor State government will hear our objections and NOT degazette our forest reserves. We also hope that both the federal and state governments will seek a better alternative to the current proposed alignment of the KLORR-Eastern Route (EKVE), so that the expressway will not cut through our forests, threatening critical water catchment and rich biodiversity areas.

    Assalamu alaikum wr wb,,senang sekali saya bisa menulis dan berbagi kepada teman2 melalui room ini, sebelumnya dulu saya adalah seorang Pengusaha Butik yg Sukses, kini saya gulung tikar akibat di tipu teman sendiri, ditengah tagihan utang yg menumpuk, Suami pun meninggalkan saya, dan ditengah himpitan ekonomi seperti ini, saya coba buka internet untuk cari lowongan kerja dan secara tdk sengaja sy liat situs pesugihan AKI SYEH MAULANA Di Website/situnya Saya pun langsug hubungi beliau dan Semua petunjuk AKI saya ikuti dan hanya 3 hari, Alhamdulilah benar benar terbukti dan, semua utang saya lunas dan sisanya buat modal usaha, kata kata beliau yang selalu sy ingat setiap manusia bisa menjadi kaya, hanya saja terkadang mereka tidak tahu atau salah jalan. Banyak orang menganggap bahwa miskin dan kaya merupakan bagian dari takdir Tuhan. Takdir macam apa? Tuhan tidak akan memberikan takdir yang buruk terhadap kita, semua cobaan yang Tuhan berikan merupakan pembuktian seberapa kuat Anda bertahan di dalamnya. Tuhan tidak akan merubah nasib Anda jika Anda tidak berusaha untuk merubahnya. Dan satu hal yang perlu Anda ingat, “Jika Anda terlahir miskin itu bukan salah siapapun, namun jika Anda mati miskin itu merupakan salah Anda, saya juga tidak lupa mengucap syukur kepada ALLAH karna melalui Ritual Penarikan Dana Hibah AKI ZYEH MAULANA saya Bisa sukses. Jadi kawan2 yg dalam kesusahan jg pernah putus asah, kalau sudah waktunya tuhan pasti kasi jalan asal anda mau berusaha, AKI ZYEH MAULANA Banyak Dikenal Oleh Kalangan Pengusaha Dan Artis Ternama Karna Beliau adalah guru spiritual terkenal di indonesia, jika anda ingin seperti saya silahkan Lihat No Tlp Aki Di website/internet ~>KLIK DISINI<~ Wassalam
