Subject: Apeal to release Natalie Lowrey -Join me on this petition!

Dear all,

Ms. Natalie Lowrey, an environmental campaigner from Australia has been arrested by the Malaysian police for taking part in a demonstration against Lynas Corporation on Sunday, 22 June 2014 in Gebeng, Pahang.

We understand that Natalie is currently being held in a lock up at Kuantan District Police Headquarters, Pahang and it would take a number of days before she is released or is charged in a Malaysian court.

Natalie has been an environmental campaigner for the past 16 years and she has been actively involved in the Stop Lynas Incorporation (SLI) in Australia for the past 3 years. She was present in Gebeng, Kuantan on behalf of the SLI to lend solidarity and support to the local community and people of Kuantan.

Please sign the petition to Minister of Home Affairs,Malaysia: Apeal to release Natalie Lowrey. The petition is really important and could use our help. Click here to find out more and sign:
