BREAKING NEWS: 5 detained at Ipoh DAP office


0820: Police have detained five people said to be from a private event company hired to facilitate a hunger-strike programme and to put up a canopy outside Wisma DAP in Ipoh this morning, reports an eye-witness.

About 20 plainclothes personnel and 50 uniformed personnel are at the scene now.

Another 20 FRU personnel have “taken over” the canopy and are preventing anyone from approaching it. A giant balloon for the launch of the hunger-strike programme has been confiscated.

Two police jeeps, two vans, seven trucks and four squad cars are now parked around Wisma DAP.

I am so stupid that I do not know that FASTING is a crime now. Kerisman, please stop the rots in the “head hunters” without any further delay.

What I know is:- FASTING is carried out by one to cleanse his/her soul from sins committed.

enough is enough. whats with the hunger strike? it can ‘push’ the Sultan to agree for Perak state election? I believe this is one of the exercise for that matter. but come on. enough is enough. I am no UMNO … …, but i’d like to point out that Perak was lost because of inexperience of Nizar and gang.

True quality of EyeMalaysia
Beware of the ‘eye’
Beware of the ‘I’ aka ‘ego’
Excessive ego leads to dictatorship

Stricking similarities with the State of Israel. Deny at your own peril:stormed the opening night of a prominent Palestinian literary festival in Jerusalem when they ordered a Palestinian theatre to close.
The week-long festival, supported by the British council and Unesco, was ordered illegal by the Israeli minister of internal security.
Police brought a letter from the Israeli minister of internal security which said the event could not be held because it was a political activity connected to the Palestinian Authority.
If Malaysia BN/UMNO ain’t diffrent what else is?
