Chin Huat’s arrest: Tell me why…

30
51

There are many things in life we cannot understand. So many difficult questions, the answers for which me may never discover in our life-time. Why, for instance, is there so much injustice and suffering in this world?

Tonight, I am trying to fathom why activist Wong Chin Huat was arrested for sedition.

So much for “OneMalaysia”. If you ask me, it’s all public relations. Now, all that PR has been stripped and we can see the reality.

I am one of Mr. Wong’s students. I do not know whether the organisation is useless or not as TOKZ said, but the most important thing is the aims of organisation. And in this case, it is really shown how the government tries to control the freedom of speech which I see as a pathetic situation. The country is for public *rakyat* not for people in the government. That’s the most important thing. By arresting him, it will be the evidence how government tries to control rakyat…

And yeah, tomorrow I will also wear black…

Detaining Chin Huat will not solve anything but only to further accelerate the demise of BN/ UMNO.

Yes, I believe he shouldn’t have mentioned civil disobedience in the first play but putting him behind bars for asking the RAKYAT to wear black ? Come on, for crying out loud….

Based on what I hear, there’s gonna be more to be hauled up before the 7th..

Colorphobia, that is why. The authourities are so afraid of any symbol that relates to dissent. They are trying to nip anything in the bud before things get worse.

Anyway maybe the home minister will do a syed hamid and declare that chin huat being detained for his own safety. It has been done before, why not now.

ANY HONOUR IN YOUR COLOUR?

As world’s free people of honour
Let us all show our “true colour”
Whether at the brightest or darkest hour
Who we can turn to as our real Saviour?

Hi Anil, I’ve no choice but to agree that WONG CHIN HUAT deserved to be detained. BERSIH is one USELESS ORGANIZATION of which serves no whatsoever purpose. Moreover, it only causes unnecessary CHAOS & PROBLEMS for the ‘rakyat’. Take a look at what happened during the recent BERSIH MARCH. The rakyat was forced to endure extreme traffic chaos, while, entrepreneurs lost MILLIONS of business due to the inconsiderate actions of BERSIH. The most effective way to eliminate such NONSENSE ORGANIZATIONS like BERSIH is to first get RID of WONG CHIN HUAT. I strongly suggest the Government to have CHIN HUAT… Read more »

… The Perak problem is also Malaysia Problem. … It is still not too late to restore order and investors confidence in Malaysia. The four by-election (especially the one in Bukit Gantang) won by PR should be sufficient proof of the peoples wish for a snap election for Perak.

Why is Wong Chin Huat’s arrest so hard to understand? It’s clearly designed to cow fear and silence into political activists. No mystery about it at all.

The question was all along posted glaringly at the democracy wall but, the majority chose to be indifferent and not take note… allowing just a handful of upright citizens to protect our freedom. Obviously, we allowed these evil goons to have the better of us…for we did nothing!
Malaysians are basically very tolerant or very selfish. We always expect others to fight our battle, we have been taken advantage of, if we do not stand up now and be counted, we will be heading the road to Zimbawe!

First of all ask…………… 1. Under “whose” orders…? 2. Why the goverment feels so threaten by this “call”…? 3. Does the law states that the police have the right to just arrest without a warrant & refuse him his rights to a lawyer…? 4. So what if the colour is “black”…? Now that they have arrested Chin Huat for “Black 7/5″… Other colours can ah…….?????????????? OK………! Now the call of “Black 7/5” has been done & come that day & we’ll see many people wearing Black……. Will we all be arrested too…..?????????????? Democracy…..??? Think for yourself lah….! He’s only a… Read more »

To appreciate Declan’s song better, here are the full lyrics: TELL ME WHY In my dream children sing a song of love for every boy and girl The sky is blue and fields are green and laughter is the language of the world Then I wake and all I see is a world full of people in need Tell me why (why) does it have to be like this? Tell me why (why) is there something I have missed? Tell me why (why) cos I don’t understand. When so many need somebody we don’t give a helping hand. Tell me… Read more »
