Himpunan Hijau (English: "Green Assembly") is a Malaysian environmentalist movement protesting against the Lynas Advanced Materials Plant (LAMP), a rare earth processing plant operating in Gebeng, Kuantan, Pahang set up by the Australian company Lynas.[1][2] The refinery process is accused of dumping tonnes of toxic and radioactive waste on the local lives, livelihoods, the environment and the health of future generations.[3] The Save Malaysia Stop Lynas (SMSL) group is currently led by the Member of Parliament for Bentong; Wong Tack.[4]

The refining facility entered production in 2013, producing 1,089 tonnes of rare earth oxides in the first quarter of 2014, with a target of 11,000 tonnes per annum.[5] On 2 September 2014, Lynas was issued a 2-year Full Operating Stage License (FOSL) by the Malaysian Atomic Energy Licensing Board (AELB).[2]
