20,000 at Pakatan ceramah in Penang

By the time the ceramah ended, the crowd at the site had swelled to 20,000.

2225: A crowd of 10,000 is now listening to a speech by PKR secretary general Saifuddin Nasution at a Pakatan ceramah at the Seberang Jaya expo site on mainland Penang, according to a veteran journalist at the scene.

Over in Sungai Aceh, Nibong Tebal, a parallel ceramah has drawn a crowd of about 3,000. Nibong Tebal is of course the home-base of defector Tan Tee Beng. Anwar has already spoken and is now on his way to Seberang Jaya, according to another source.

The events are to commemorate the second anniversary of the watershed 8 March 2008 general election.

Let’s stand together and vote for Pakatan. It’s for the good of the country. Politicians live on our money. We are the taxpayers and the generator of wealth for the country. We therefore have the right to vote whoever we want. This time, let’s all vote for Pakatan. And to those who have left PKR, good riddance to bad rubbish. In some places throughout the country Pakatan (PKR,PAS and DAP) have run out application forms for those who want to join the parties. This shows how strong the support is for a change at the federal level. Good luck Pakatan.

The same old method. Is this only ‘weapon'(number of crowd) PR have to show that they have support of people??? If PR really have support why don’t organize things like massive civil disobedient in Perak to bring down UMNO state gov??? How did India gain it’s independent? Learn from great leaders.

Every single Malaysians must stand and be counted as we are seeing the terrible happenings around us. Murderers & Thieves stealin the National Wealth are going scot free…….police personnel (allegedly) beating to death people in custody ( they have been doing these evil acts for years…. (Remember) khugan,k kannan ,yogeswaran,kumar krishnan,A.gnanapragasam ,beng hock and many others including illegals ) They have been doing this because we choose to be silent and look away hoping the problems will go away. Thanks to political groups like keadilan,pas ,dap and N G Os the issue is brought to light. Say No the Racist… Read more »

They wanted to see Anwar face. You know people always have the curiosity particularly after the sodomy 2. I was also attended Anwar “ceramah” many times before just to see Anwar face particularly after “sodomy 1”. But I never support his party.

Gerakan K, See your cheerleader here! I think he has some problem with his eyesight? Can you please take him to an optician and have his eyes checked? I think you should get him a set of glasses or contact lens! Shocking la! He must have undergone so bad a brainwash at BTN or Perkasa! Surely this is too much is it not, bro? If you do not wish to donate a pair of glasses to him and if he really needs one, do let us know in this blog, the readers here are only too happy to help this… Read more »

Gerakan [email protected] if u think PR is falling apart, and gerakan is darn strong, please continue to think so..Generation X and Y are rising up and watching everything..technology speeds up the spread of information and TRUTH. Show me the reason why i need to vote for your party? Are you different from those politician? What kind of policy you will make if you are the decision maker? Why Penang remained the same after so many years during your boss governance? At least now, i can see a better looking komtar. Better chair to sit when we wait for ferry to… Read more »

No,

BN won the majority seats in Parliament (2/3 on the way very soon), thus has the support of the majority of the people. That is a FACT !!!

O
Guest

Gerakan K,

Bro, honestly, 2/3 is just but a dream that will not materialize! Even if they secure a 2/3 majority, but, when it comes to crunch time, decisive moments to take decisions, they will not get that support, unless they can entice 20 PR Parliamentarians! If they have 2 or 3 majority, prominent BN Parliamentarians will not give them their votes! There are still some honourable Parliamentarians left in BN not supporting them, but, working, speaking and representing the Rakyat!

Cheers!

Looking at these “syiok sendiri” comments from our usual PR cybertroopers is rather amusing. At the time PR is falling part and walking like a shell-shocked boxer just delivered a KO, these comments sound like whistling in the dark. No public money spent ? Well this is funny. Who paid for all the transport to ferry these people ? Who paid for the stadia, PA system, banners, logistics, drinks,etc ? PR used to hentam BN for abusing public money for party functions but now it looks like PR has exceed BN in (allegedly) abusing public monies. I am sure there… Read more »

The bandar Malays were awoken first and now the kampung Malays is also awaken from their slumber. They are not stupid anymore swallowing every word they hear from UMNO, UMNO papers, and UMNO TV.

They can see what a transformation Penang has gone thru in such a short time and the benefits the rakyat have receive from PR government despite handicapped by the federal government.

It is very encouraging to see that so many RAKYAT attended the Ceramah. PR should held the future ceramahs at the BN strong holds. If there are many RAKYAT shown up then BN can kiss good bye to putrajaya else PR needs to work harder!!

Hi O

Ironic, isn’t it?

The Pakatan Rakyat of today is more and more
like the Alliance of the 1950s and 1960s under
Tunku Abdul Rahman i.e. multiethnic and inclusive.

The Barisan Nasional of today is
a “coalition” dominated by big brother UMNO
playing divisive racial games while the other little brothers/little sisters fidget uncomfortably and silently (except for inffectual protests once in a while from the littlest siblings i.e. their Youth Wings)

Hi! Phua, Agree with you! Those days, the Alliance were known as Perikatan, the sailing ship! But, today, BN, like you say is only UMNO Baru, MCA, MIC, Gerakan and all the other mosquito parties are irrelevant to them! Just see what will happen to the allocation of seats come the next GE! MCA, MIC and Gerakan will be screwed! No more give and take as UMNO Baru wants it all! Just watch. But, sad thing Phua, corruption had so deeply crept into our society, some just do not understand what working for an opposition party is like. It is… Read more »

O,

there is good news for PR in KL. A veteran MCA leader (with a Dr. title and often managed to show his face in chinese newspapers) is going to join PKR soon. I managed to hear his opinion when he was running a donation program for recent fire victims. But I guess he is just another “lalang”.

Gerakan K,

Heard that TGNA and Husam will be removed! Also, the unity talk between PAS and UMNO Baru is still on, as the pro UMNO clique in PAS are very influential.

So long, if this happens, then I will call it quits! Hope it is mere rumours, but, the blogger who wrote this is a very reliable one!

So just wait and see!

Cheers bro!

Gerakan K, Who is that bro? Is he an elected representative? No surprise because there were speculations during the turmoil in MCA that about 8 MPs wanted to resign and be independents! Some say BN friendly independents, but, I really do not know! Really, bro, do not just trust politicians! You see, we are here to change the Government for the better, because the country is in bad shape! If we continue with UMNO Baru, surely the end is near! What is so wrong with change? They have had it for 52 years and look where we are today and… Read more »

O, I cannot give his name to you openly. But surely he is the local warrior I must say. Any problem/issue from small thing like “longkang tersumbat”, flash flood, illegal foreigners, vandalism, drug addicts, licensing, complaints against DBKL or new policies, donation, small demos by traders/victims, etc will be forwarded to him almost daily basis. Of course the local chinese newspapers without any hesitation to give him big coverage. Sometimes in front page too. But due to some personal issue (the private moral thing), his party prevent him from contesting but with compensation. He also predicted that in next GE,… Read more »

He drives a 4WD ( white colour) and the China doll he took, could speak good English, and look good too. I purposely followed the China doll into the convenient store, and when… Read more »

Mr.Anil,
sorry state of malaysia as a democratic country….an opp. MP is representing 80-100k voters …but so called many UMNO putra ministers who are the decision makers are represting just 15-20k voters, that too from rural areas.
had these been corrected….UMNO will be wiped out.

@K, so many have already answered you. Assuming that you are really ‘innocent/ignorant’; go attend any of those ceramahs by PR and see how much the Rakyat, those comes in selipar & old t-shirt are contributing to PR. It is the money of pakcik and makcik as well as the support of the volunteers that help support all those ceramahs. And this happen over and over again, since the last GE. This is truly People’s Power! Unlike umno or bn, they have to (entice) the people to come & listen to their ceramah with goodies, money that (probably) comes from… Read more »

Gerakan K, why everything come out from your brain is so ‘xxxxxxx’ rot.

Just can’t imagine what kind of person you are to support a corrupted regime like BN…. I am NOT a staunch PAKATAN supporter, but it just make no sense for me to support a regime like BN, corrupt, greed, irresponsible, whatnot. Just can’t finish thinking of the bad things they do.
