AN activist group and a political party have started a crowdfunding exercise to raise RM30,000 for the Orang Asli of Pos Lanai in Sg Lipis, Pahang to fight off a mining project that they claim will cause massive environmental damage.

Misi Solidariti and Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) said the project will also affect the livelihood of almost 2,500 Semai in the area.
