Effingham hunger strike called off

A hunger strike protesting the alleged grab of land belonging to SJK (T) Ladang Effingham in Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya, was called off this afternoon on the advice of doctors.

The strike, which began last Saturday morning, ended about 12.05pm today, with the five protesters breaking their four-day fast with coconut juice.

Four of the five hunger strikers were admitted to Universiti Malaya Medical Centre shortly after their strike ended. They were very weak, and were taken away in two ambulance vans.

The hunger strike was initiated by school alumni members, parents and teachers under the banner of the Return Effingham Land Action Team (Reflax).
