Dear LIM Members and Friends
RE: Urging you to write an email to express your concerns about the Mega Incinerator ASAP (especially before Monday morning).
You may not have heard that the Panel on Environmental Affairs will be meeting on Monday (24 Feb) at 2:30 to consider approving the building of the Mega Incinerator near Shek Kwu Chau.
Details of the meeting can be found at http://www.legco.gov.hk/yr13-14/english/panels/ea/agenda/ea20140224.htm and the public can attend by booking a seat in the public gallery via 3919 3399.
