Stop targeting Malaysiakini, say NGOs


About 30 activists this morning voiced their concern about the MCMC’s action against Malaysiakini over its videos relating to the ‘cow-head’ protest.

They held a brief gathering outside the Malaysiakini office at 10.00am, followed by a press conference in the Malaysiakini office.

NIEI chairman Yunus Ali said the MCMC’s demand that Malaysiakini pull down the video was “illogical”.

Other NGOs in the group included Writers Alliance for Media Independence (Wami), Suaram, and the bloggers’ Anak Bangsa Malaysia team.

Over in Penang, Charter 2000-Aliran has also come out with a statement in support of Malaysiakini here.

Seperti sentimen Kg Buah Pala kepada Anil, video-video ini akan membuat kebanyakkan rakyat Malaysia bangun dan pangkah salah kepada Pakatan Rakyat apabila terdapat pilihan raya nanti.

Jika video-video ini tidak secara rasmi diharamkan oleh kerajaan BN, sila simpan untuk kenangan sendiri atau bagi kepada kawan-kawan. Sila ingatkan mereka selalu tentang insiden ini.


The aujtority think that we are stupid to believe that the public are annoyed by the video recording of cow’s head demo.
The Hindus did not object to it as shown by Hindraf support to mkini.
MIC did not object.
PAS did not opbject.
Almost all Malay NGOs did not object.
The Chinese did not object.
Who on earth will object? Only UMNO because they know that it will be detrimental to their chances of election.

Jebat musibat

do they (MCMC) care?

they are just a new wing of BN party.
