Jul 14, 2019 — 

On 11 July, about 400 people attended Penang Tolak Tambak's protest in Parliament. It is the first time in history that Malaysian fishermen -- 120 from Penang and 80 from Perak -- marched to Parliament. The Sungai Tiram mosque sent 1 bus in solidarity with the nelayan (fishermen) and 1 bus of people, mostly NGOs from Penang and Taiping, joined the march.

I believe that Tun Mahathir does not agree with Penang South Reclamation. The artificial islands only benefit foreigners.
