The people of Penang grow more concerned and more uncomfortable with each passing week as we view the continuing destruction of our beloved hills.
Issues of mudslides, pollution of water catchment areas, loss of forests and threats to life and homes are cause for us all to be very worried. Given the inadequate infrastructure, poor control and monitoring, problems caused to neighbouring residents and the growing degradation of our Penang environment, let us get together to find out more about Why? Where? Who? What can we do about it?
