"I hope our fair minded YAB Tun hears us. We appreciate what you have done for Malaysia and we want to contribute to your vision. We joined Lynas to play a role in the development of technology. We are Malaysians, we are the workers, we ensure we follow the law, we ensure our workers, families and communities are safe, we ensure the environment is protected. We Malaysians will never jeopardise our generations' future. So dearest Tun, please hear our plight and have trust in us."

Kartina, superintendent, Planning and Inventory
"I worked in a petrochemical and utilities company in Gebeng and then Lynas. Both industries have risks. Both companies benchmark safety and environmental performance against international standards and local regulations. I am proud that Lynas puts the safety of our people, community and environment as its number one priority at all times."

Jumaat, senior manager, Organisational Development
"It took me nine months to join Lynas because I was worried about what the anti-Lynas groups said. I put my trust in Allah SWT. Learning and seeing the operations myself, I regret not joining sooner. This is my sixth year. I confidently confirm the competency of our people and processes which ensure we always adhere to local and international environmental laws."

Pak Raja, head, fishermen of Balok
"I am the elected head of the fishermen of Balok and I represent my people, not some politicians. I can assure we have never caught fish that are poisonous due to chemicals or caught fish that look funny because of radiation. I have never seen these people coming to talk to me or my people about anything. But I know these Lynas people. They have been regularly with us here. So to these people, stop using us as a political issue to win votes."

C.S. Lee, supplier
"I have been supplying pumps to many factories in multiple industries, medium or large. I visited the factories myself and I find that among similar industries, Lynas is very serious about housekeeping and the plant environment is very clean. The workers are friendly and always have safety as their priority. Business is good and payment is prompt."

Pak Shikh, head of Chengal Lempong
"Lynas has always been there for us. Their staff have been involved with our village activities since they started – from direct contribution, fixing unfortunate homes to participating in our village feasts. Our children have benefitted from the Academic Ivory Tower Programme and some of them will be graduating soon. We have never had any doubt of their safety as their staff is a good representation of that."
