It Takes a Village - The Story of Saving Taman Rimba Kiara

The battle to save Taman Rimba Kiara is finally over, with the Federal Court's ruling in favour of protecting the space, by quashing a development order by the DBKL to develop the area. Many have described the long fight to preserve this green lung as a David vs Goliath undertaking - how did the community rally together to coordinate and take on the authorities? We speak to three of the many involved in the saga, Hafiz Abu Bakar (Former Chairman, TTDI Residents Association), Leon Koay (Committee Coordinator, Save Taman Rimba Kiara Working Group) and Khairudin Rahim (Media Coordinator, Save Taman Rimba Kiara Working Group) about the monumental effort that saved a park, and brought together a community for the greater good.
