CSL is very cocky and arrogant in dismissing the plea of hundreds of Chinese residents of Pengerang (Johor) whose home and ancestral tombs have to make way for Rapid development. I think this is a wake up call for those rural chinese in Johor that MCA is selling out their interests as much as they have also demonstrated in the chinese independent school issue.

This is shown on Astro’s AEC newstalk program last nite 24 August.
Do not forget to catch the repeat broadcast on Monday 27 August 2012 at 8.30 am and 1.30pm on Astro AEC (ch 301).

As reported in MySinChew on 17 April: http://www.mysinchew.com/node/72640?tid=12 It was said that DAP Parliamentary leader Lim Kit Siang, who was born in Johor, would lead his men to attack the BN’s deposit state of Johor in the next general election. The news has indeed shocked the people. Earlier, PAS Vice President Salahuddin Ayub also confirmed that he will be contesting in Johor, which is also his home state. It shows that Pakatan Rakyat has reached a consensus in making Johor a frontline state. There should be a target for the so-called frontline state. Lim said before that the task of… Read more »

BN will lose Christians votes in Johor no thanks to the ‘Christian Threat’ seminar by the Johor Mufti.

Surprise that MCA is quiet on this matter.

Suhaimi

Another issue that irked the residents in Johor is the RM20 billion Refinery and Petrochemical Integrated Development (Rapid) would pollute the environment in Pengerang, Johor thatwould affect sea fishing activities – the main source of income for the locals.

Satu lagi projek BN yang tak dahulukan rakyat?

This is not reported in the mainstream newspaper.

http://malaysiansmustknowthetruth.blogspot.com/2012/03/pengerang-folks-rally-against-gas.html

Richie Hee

The Pengerang Residents Action Committee said that 96% of
the villagers were against the Petronas’ Refinery and Petrochemical Integrated Development (Rapid) project. They had collected over 1,600 signatures of respondents (1,000 Chinese and 600 Malays) who were against the project and will submit the list to Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak in a form of memorandum.

The villagers are concerned that the RM60 billion Rapid project would pollute the environment, and particularly affect deep-sea fishing activities.

richard tee

I think there is now a ‘Angry Lobster’ movement that is protesting against Rapid for damaging Pengerang!

Darren

What is puzzling is why have an environmental unfriendly project located so near to Singapore Changi and Deasaru? Should not we preserve the area to promote tourism since there is a plan to build a 3rd bridge linking Singapore and Pengerang? The Johor State government so hard up for development at the expense of the environment. All the coastal region have been or being developed stretching from Sungai Rengit in the east to Pasir Gudang, then the Danga Bay, and the the Tanjong Pelepas Port in the west. The Johoreans have no clean beaches and seasides to bring their families… Read more »

This project will have severe impact on the fishery and tourism industries. The fishermen have complained that Johor Government has not forwarded them a concrete compensation plan. They also complained that the parties concerned have not compensated them due to fisheries losses resulted by an oil spill in the sea nearby last year. The land reclamation for the project site would affect drainage by four rivers into the sea. That may result in floods due to possible slower flow diversion of rainwater runoffs. Also, the emission of gases will pollute the atmosphere and this will have a long term negative… Read more »

MCA is still trying its old trick to scare the chinese about the Islamic policy of PAS. What a joke as MCA has forgotten that Tun M has long ago declared Malaysia as an Islamic state. I do not remember MCA making noise then.

In the meantime, Umno is scaring the malays (especially on TV3 everynight and on Utusan every day) that Pakatan is linked with Yahudi. They forgot that the young generation do not have to depend on these Umno media for news. Umno is really behind time.

Suhaimi

A good assessment of the sentiments of the Chinese in Johor on the coming election:

The 325 protest by the chinese groups marks the failure of MCA in safeguarding Chinese education. Not wrong to say that the chinese community is fed up with MCA!

Not just those 4 seats are going to the OPPOSITION but even the one held by Dr. Subramaniam in Segamat. Labis may be the stronghold of CSL and his son, but the WIND OF CHANGE sweeping the country is bound to decimate the MCA and the MIC for good this 13th GE. If PKR and PAS can surmount all the obstacles thrown at them from reaching the Malay masses by the UMNO thugs, Johor will see a new Pakatan Rakyat government in Johor. That would usher in a good, transparent, accountable and people centric government in Johor as the one… Read more »

my JB friend told me the medium at ancient temple has predicted a drastic change on the way to Johor very soon.

some said Ghani to make way ?

some said MCA is knocking on heaven’s (or hell to some) door ?

no matter what, Johorians deserve better than what they are havingright now.

Yang

With the fall of the fortress Johore we shall see the fall OF Putrajaya.

This is now or never. If we don`t do it now, the rakyat cries for change will be doomed for a very very long to come and AMMO Barang Naik and their sycophants will tighten their squeeze on us even more.

Wake up everybody. Its now or never.

kee

Yes, GE13th is crucial, either we make this time or we die forever. I hope all the Chinese in Johore will wake up and do the future generations a favour, that is, vote out that useless MCA as MCA is as good as nothing except ya ya and betul to their tai-kor, UMNO. The MCA now is not the same MCA under Tan Siew Sin. The MCA now is “I take care of myself and my own family… what i care is about our own survival and the big fat bank accounts.” Ling Leong Sik speaks all !!! Look at… Read more »

nkkhoo senior

my friends from JB saw big improvements in Penang under Pakatan. Now they want similar development in Johor ! For decades most Johorians who work and bring back S$ to spend in Johor and pay taxes see little progress. The city public transport system no RapidJohor but bas pajak system still rules. New Danga Bay housing project only appeal to the rich. Locals unless pros working in Spore can afford to purchase those bayside condos ! Barang Naik in JB bcoz Sporeans find things cheap cheap with stronger S$ thus drives up inflation. The ground is brewing and tsunami on… Read more »

Daim in his interview to SinChew predicted that MCA will be wiped out in the coming election, in the manner Gerakan met its fate in the last election. Johor Chinese has witnessed how Singaporeans turned to support opposition in large number in the Singapore election last year. They have realise that it is good to have 2-party system to act as check and balance. The revelation of NFC scandal has opened many eyes as they could be other such cases that are spared from the random AG audit. I was in JB recently and I have witnessed several NGOs setting… Read more »

MCA has failed to provide satisfatory answer to the problem of the shortage of chinese teachers (those can communicate in Mandarin) in chinese schools. That’s why there will be a protest on March 25 by many Chinese clans/associations. My daughter was a temporary teacher at a chinese school and she is well regarded by the students there. Her contract was terminated by Ministry of Education last year and her place was taken over by a non-chinese local graduate who cannot speak mandarin. That’s a big blunder on th epart of MCA. So my family will not support MCA from then… Read more »

Ha Ha.
Najib want to recognise China universities but still do not recognize the local independent chinese schools.
MCA is really useless here.

Richie Hee

The PM announced on chinese radio station 2 days ago that the government was serious about solving the long-standing problem of the lack of Mandarin teachers in Chinese vernacular schools.

Patrick Teoh (of Niamah fame) correctly put it for us:

“What? After more than 50 years of the same government only now want to be serious ah? Why ah? Elections coming ah? Chinese flers need more baiting ah?”

Darren

If MCA is doing well for chinese education, why then Wee Ka Siong was jeered by the 5000 crowd at the rally organised by the United Chinese School Committees Association (Dong Zong) to protest a shortage of Chinese school teachers?

http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/malaysia/article/thousands-jeer-deputy-minister-over-chinese-school-teacher-shortage/

Fred Yong

Is it a deliberate act on the part of the Umno-led government to stifle and slowly strangle vernacular schools in the country?

Or is it MCA flers merely kowtowing to Umno as they are afraid of their political positions being taken away from them? (OTK in PKFZ case)

Like their Penang counterparts, in order remain as a force to be reckoned with, Johor Chinese may have to vote for Pakatan Rakyat? They may not be familiar with PAS’ concept of Islam, but they could give PAS a chance.

kingkong

Are you sure that your friends see BIG improvements in Penang? You do not seem to see with all those hantam at LGE?

vince

Hello Mr Kingkong, don’t u realise that all those who criticize LGE are the sour grape losers from Penang opposition. They just envy n hantam for the sake of discrediting whatever Pakatan govnmt in Penang are doing for the benefits of Penangites. Period!

Suhaimi

Singapore’s channel news asia in its news segment reported the alleged RM80K Shangri-La bill for the PM’s birthday party was attentioned to the PM office. This is not featured in any local mainstream TV news at all. So Johoreans that watches news on Singapore channels should have a more balanced view other than the biased TV3,TV1,Awani,NTV7,TV9…

Joy

Very true!

Kazan

I support your view. I am a Malay and my sons have to cari Mayan in Singapore in order to manage the high cost in Johor.

I have also seen many young people in Johor openly expressing their support for Pakatan, especially after the numerous disruption of Pakatan’s creamah sessions by Umno thugs in Johor.

bigjoe

Not news. Its clear already MCA will be decimated in the next GE. People already expect them to threaten the Chinese community as much fear as they can dream off and splash money for hard-pressed schools in order to hang on..

The question is how many Malay majority seats can PR win? If PR can only win 4 non-Malay majority seat, chances are they can win maybe just 1 Malay majority seat, PAS may win a couple more. But that’s it. Its not even close to being enough..

Richie pala

We must let MCA go, johor or not. It is time to choose which bridge to burn and which bridge to cross. Letting go the old one, you get a new one, burned that bridge off! we shall get a new bridge, new beginning and new dawn.

(gong zhi said : wu xhia er zhe tian ming, lui xia er eer shun), means 50ties is year of destiny/capability known, 60ties you could know a person by listening to him. MCA is 63 yrs old, we should know MCA’s capability/destiny. By now, MCA should know what the Chinese want…

Shaky seats. Here’s a dedication to the Chinese Sex Legend.
