A group of NGOs led by Penang Forum and Consumers Association Penang today staged a protest against the state's mega-road projects.

Motorists driving along Jalan Masjid Negeri honked at the 30-odd protestors, whose colourful placards read "Scrap reclamation, protect natural environment", "Save the fisherfolks in Penang", and "CM, please help to move people".
