despite the actions of protestor in kuala lumpur. the appearance of DSAI and other political figure is enough to highlight that this is not a legal or humanitarian issue but a political one. the isa is being reviewed at the time of the protests. and the protestor brought along kids (which is very very dispicable of the parents) using your kids as a sheild. the protest was also illegal because in Malaysia you would require a permit/license for a protest/march/etc, this is to ensure that the appropriate arrangements could be made to ensure safety and no damages occur, yet this… Read more »

Anil, many thanks for the superb live coverage you provided yesterday on this successful protest to smash the vile ISA!

The democratic score to me was:
The Rakyat+GMI+PR = +10; UMNO/BN+Pewaris+ISA = -10

Smile.

Thanks again Anil and bravo Malaysians. Yesterday Malaysians of all ethnic and religious backgrounds, both genders and all skin colours, walked together on a matter of national policy. This was simply beautiful. I was there. I saw black-clad Malaysian Chinese who shared light moments with tudung-clad Malaysian Malay ladies, brave Unit Amal members giving salt (against tear gas) to Hindraf supporters. That’s why BN is so enraged. Malaysians built history together yesterday, as they did in the Hartal and the PUTERA-AMCJA people’s constitution days. Malaysians have a history together, though it has been hidden to them for decades. They just… Read more »

Hi Anil…

Just pop up from my head though I’m no scholarly person in sociological studies. Just why the SOGO/Pertama area, Masjid Jamek area, and Masjid Negara area has and is becoming a rallying starting point to get to the Istana Negara? It would make an interesting dissertation for any Master/Ph.D. candidate.

Hmmnnn…maybe I should consider studying the psychology or historical force of these three areas 😉

I am so proud to be at Sogo this afternoon. Though I was drenched in chemical water, I feel so big as people from all walks of life and all races were present and in fact we all had been so law abiding and were all in line for the march but the Police came barging in with the water jet and tear gas….causing pandamonium and people hda to run to avoid from been arrested. The police kicked and punched at people whom they had caught and its so sads to see the people been beaten by the police and… Read more »

Tahniah to all those who have taken part. The result will not be now, but it will come. Remember the stuggle by the black, how long does it take them to get to go to the same school as the white. Today they have a coloured president.

The CRY OF REFORMASI is ringing OUT LOUD all over the Country in the hearts of Good Men & Women can see the use of ISA to silence critics of Government and to jail anyone who oppose Corruption & evil misdeeds of the those in power.
If we dont act now, our childrens future will be DARK .
Someone said ‘FOR EVIL TO CONTINUE,GOOD MEN DO NOTHING ‘.
REFORMASI !!!
