Free Nat Lowrey

***UPDATE, 27th June 2014: Natalie Lowrey has been released and will be heading back to Australia in the next few days***



Natalie was in Malaysia at a peaceful protest against Lynas Corporation, an Australian company that is setting up a rare earth processing plant in Kuantan, Malaysia, and which will potentially impose tonnes of toxic waste on the local community.

She was arrested along with a number of Malaysian activists. They were all released, yet she has been kept in a crowded concrete cell and the media is reporting that she risks 2 years jail. She has been moved to a special investigations unit, possibly to isolate her from media and support.
