More than a hundred people, about half of them from the press, turned up at The Edge office this afternoon in a show of solidarity.

About 70-80 people gathered at the Esplanade in Penang on 27 July to express solidarity.

About 9000 people have ‘liked’ the Solidarity with The Edge and Sarawak Report Facebook page.

And almost 30000 people have signed an online petition calling for the suspension of The Edge and the block of Sarawak Report to be lifted.

And you can also follow campaign updates via Twitter @attheedgemalaysia

Guan Eng has his day in court so just let the Edge has its day. Does this not prove that the Govt and court is fair. What are you people grumbling about.

I hope Anil could emulate The Malaysiakini website that is going black for 24 hours today to protest the Home Ministry’s 3-month suspension of The Edge Weekly and The Edge Financial Daily.

This is also in support of the #AtTheEdge campaign, which seeks to lift the suspension, as well as the Internet block on whistleblower site Sarawak Report. The campaign also demands that the government respects the right of Malaysians to information about the debt-riddled sovereign wealth fund 1Malaysia Development Bhd.

Tunglang, you do not have to feel sorry for me or for anyone. I trust and believe in the current administration rather than the Cat and Pakatan which I do not give a damn anymore. I won`t simply be an anti establishment just like the many Chinese do and which I have been for so many years. I believed in REALITY not unlike those that keep on Ah Mah Mah.. Like I have said, Who the hell is not for SELF INTEREST. Yes and that include me. I do not need to be a hypocite like many do. Misdeed are… Read more »

I feel very sorry for Yang. For whatever his personal reason, I would not judge him. Everyone is entitled to his own opinion & preference, whether he or she has learn a thing or two from 58 yrs of Merdeka. Time will tell where this nation is going, for broke or for prosperity for all (& not just for one race). But I believe, collectively we Malaysians are awaken now for proactive actions to rid of this beloved Tanah Air Cinta Ku of evil corruption, money laundering, election cheats, misuse of power & trust, murders, religious bigotry & not least,… Read more »

Everytime I paid a bill, I saw 1MDB (SekaliManaDuitBelah) burden.
To declare 1MDB is not using taxpayer money, then we shouldn’t be paying GST to save a failed misadventure of national investment. This the Finance Minister still cannot differentiate?
Maybe he should learn to use the abacus, a hard learning curve to avoid miscalculation of investing & discipline of money flow.

Tung I can see very.very clearly more than you can imagine. 2 billion or what, that not important when the Cat and senior can cohabit and sleep with people like defacto M that cause our country to lost hundreds of billion. The most important thing is to finish of Dap,.Pkr Pas and Ghb to save our.country from going the way of.Iran and the middle.east country.

Zahid: Full brunt of law to be used against Sarawak Report. Zahid should first demonstrate the prowess of our law enforcement capability outside our shores by bringing the party responsible for the downing of MH17 to bear ‘the full brunt of the law’. He should be getting the IGP/PDRM to instruct the leaders of the pro-Russian separatist in Ukraine to avail themselves at the Bukit Aman police station to facilitate investigation, failing which a warrant of arrest would be issued against them. Zahid should also revisit the Alvin Tan’s case by taking the IGP to task for his seemingly inability… Read more »

Ironically Prime Minister Najib, in his speech at the National Press Club Award last year said this:

“A strong and vibrant media is an essential part of a mature democracy. When journalists are empowered, society can benefit. The press can hold governments, corporations and people to account. At its best, the media holds a mirror up to society; so that we may see our flaws, and fix them.”

Latest actions carried out by the 1PM shows his willingness
to risk civil war within UMNO Baru, just to stay in power.

(Also, to keep the wife happy?)

Yes, in order to stay in power, 1pm said it “at all costs i will take back selangor” and an innocent guy at 30 was tormented and (fell) out of the window… Yes, … a mongolian beauty had to be c4 into powder so that no traces of evidence can be found… In his greed for power and billions and diamon, may i add, he has forgotten that humans have souls, they are not cats and dogs. These two souls are constantly crying out from the ground… See, all the hidden billions are in the open now, not only in… Read more »

You are trying to deflect from the issue of Pakatan that is now in disarray. DAP is trying so hard to woo PKR and GHB into the fold of Pakatan 2 without much success. Azmin and Azizah has said PKR would still be working with all parties including PAS while DAP is rattled with GHB whose policy and agenda is still hudud and an islamic state. Now that DAP has snatched one of PKR members, I wonder how would PKR leaders and supporters feel. Pakatan is POOCHIT so is Pakatan 2 oop, Pakatan might not be poochit after all. PKR… Read more »

When shopping therapy from buying spree of coloured diamonds, branded handbags, personal airplanes & annual holidays (to escape from answering to national crisis) become habitual, do you think these irresponsibles would repent & change?
Woe be to Malaysia Tanah Air Cinta Ku since the advent of this couple of power mismanagement & cheats.

God, Siong-Te, Thi-Kong, Shiva/Vishnu/Shakti, Tuhan, Waheguru, be merciful & look to our woes when nothing in the laws of the land can help but punish the helpless, discontented & righteous.

Zahid: Full brunt of law to be used against Sarawak Report
http://www.thestar.com.my/News/Nation/2015/07/31/zahid-full-brunt-of-law-sarawak-report/

On Sarawak Report and its report on a supposed arrest warrant for Najib, Khalid said there was no need to bring the former Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail in for questioning.

“The current A-G has already made a statement, so why must I ask the former A-G?

“But the actions of Sarawak Report’s Clare has violated several laws. So a police report has been lodged and we will investigate her baseless allegations,” he said.
