KUALA TERENGGANU, July 11 (Bernama) -- About 50 members of the Terengganu
Malaysia Felda Youth Council (MBFM) held a 30-minute peaceful demonstration in
front of the Felda regional office, here, this morning.
Besides that, 15 police reports have been lodged by 20 MBFM branches in the
state against the rally, dubbed the "Orange Rally to Save Felda" organised by
the National Association of Children of Felda Settlers (Anak).
Anak reportedly planned to hold a mass gathering and then march to Istana
Negara on July 14 to hand over to the King, a memorandum on their objection to
Felda Global Ventures Holdings Bhd (FGVH) listing.
A memorandum was submitted to Felda Terengganu Region general manager Abd
Malib Abd Rani at about 11.45am after the peaceful demonstration.
Terengganu MBFM vice-chairman 1, Mohd Azani Mohd Noor said MFBM from other
states would also organise the same protest against the Orange Rally, as the
rally could affect Felda''s image and give negative perspective to investors on

"I''ve made a police report so that the Orange Rally organisers will be
subject to legal action for instigating the settlers and people to go against
"The majority of Felda settlers don''t agree with the group''s action," he
told reporters after handing over the memorandum.
Abd Malib said he would pass on the memorandum immediately to the Felda
management for further action.
