2007 BERSIH Rally in Wikipedia

[quote=“Geekguy”]Well there you have it folks. Our local media are biased bunch of buffoons.

They censored Al-Jazeera, a cable news network that was considered once upon a time ago to be more fair and balance when it comes to news coverage compared to the evil westerners (BBC, CNN).

Now we have the local media is literally in a state of denial.

Its bad enough we have an embarrassing INFORMATION MINISTER that cannot hold a conversation without making himself sound like a fool.

Best moment is in the last line…

“Many thanks for joining us”, directly cuts off what the fool is trying to add and made him a complete fool to the world audience. Malaysia memang boleh.

hmm… yea had really made a fool out of himself!
AND FROM THE WAY HE SPEAKS WE KNOWS THAT HE IS GUILTY FOR SOMETHING!!!

hi Ian. and Iweed

the multitude of people assembled as seen from the similar photos, i think occured in the Philippines. It was the “SECOND PEOPLE POWER” that ousted the former president Estrada from office. Dont you know, the calling of the people to assemble during that time was mostly done thru hand phone SMS? it was so immediate to have such multitude of crowd. Unlike the First People Power in 1986, the information was scattered only through mass media and the assembly a bit slower to have a big crowd.

Actually, our office is near to the site, a 20 minutes walk.

fight for your rights and aspirations within the bounds of law and constitution.

wishing you all good luck

have a good day

thanks

impressive baham, now only i know… tat pic in this thread is misleading ==

same thing, different country…still no effect

Looks like that mammoth line-up was for free coca-cola!!

but u know guys, people were successful in overthrowing Marcos and Estrada hoping for a change in governance, or that their aspiration for better lives will be achieved but sad to say that those things did not happen until now. This is because the politicians who run now our govt. have the same attitude as that of their predecessors. It is JUST like dressing up the MONKIES for better look, and yet they are still monkies by breed and nature, no change in attitude etc. still working for self-interest and corrupt.

from our political experience, the opposition parties more often magnify the mistakes of the ruling party to gain more sympathy from the people. So, when the election time comes, they are hoping for a better turn out of votes in their favour. seldom to tell the truth, so does the administration.

I always believe that the malaysians are wise enough to decide what is better for your country. A proof of which you are already ahead of us in economic progress. I think the Vision 2020 will be reachable in accordance with Malaysian’s dream.

have a good day

thanks

i guess the effect is not seen yet. btw, other things change cuz of tat, more citizens see and know this, realise something and feel something.

i dont expect this ‘demonstration’ would change the admin tier in gov, but i do feel it push our lvl as citizen (instead of always like sheep )higher into another stage. many wake from this move(while there is many that didnt and some who wake… but that’s all for them)

SAMPLE LETTER


[Letterhead of organisation]

10 November 2007

Tan Sri Musa Hassan
Inspector-General of Police
Ibu Pejabat Polis Diraja Malaysia
Bukit Aman
50560 Kuala Lumpur.

Tel: +603 2262 6222
Fax: +603 2273 9602

Dear Sir,

Peaceful demonstrators arbitrarily and unlawfully arrested by police; release them immediately

We are writing to you to register our strongest condemnation and protest against the arbitrary and unlawful arrests of at least 29 citizens who were participating in a peaceful rally in Dataran Merdeka this afternoon (10 November 2007).

So far,5 names of those still under arrested have been obtained. They are:
1. Taib Abdullah
2. Ishak B. Othman
3. Mohd. Shafie Ismail
4. Mohd. Nazrin Nasir
5. Abisalam

The arbitrary arrests by the police during the rally is a gross violation of Article 10 of the Federal Constitution, which is the highest law in the country, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).

Despite the fact that the organisers have given assurances that it will take all measures to ensure peace and public order, the police still attempted to stop the rally even before it even started by setting up roadblocks in several locations near the venue and arrested at least 20 peaceful demonstrators who were merely exercising their Constitutional rights to demand for free and fair elections.

With such a blatant disregard for its own citizens' fundamental rights, we question the legitimacy of Malaysia as a member of the United Nations Human Rights Council.

We therefore demand that all those arrested by the police be released immediately.

Thank you for your attention.

Sincerely yours,

[Name]

a demonstration is a wakeup call for the govt. to do something for the people or a call that the govt remisses to do its obligation to them.
as long as it is done within the bounds of law, it will be ok.

I dont know if im right, i hope somebody from there will be kind enough to correct me. I understand that you do have a draconian law, The Internal Security Act (ISA). wherein the detainee can be indefinitely detain without any charges in court or a no bail offense. i just hope that the govt will not use that law to charge the protesters should the situation worsen, and it is easy to do that, the govt will just say that the internal security of the state will be at stake or in danger.

was it (ISA)not used against Anwar Ibrahim?

thanks

They were there to maintain crowd discipline, to detect agent provocateurs, and to clear up the rubbish after the rally was over (picturea below, courtesy Malaysiakini).

No peaceful demonstrations?

Last but not least, the presence of the Bar Council team of monitors, comprising some 40 voluntary lawyers and law students, had provided sufficient deterrent to prevent the peace rally from being hijacked into a ruckus.

There had never been peaceful demonstrations, the PM said?

Several of our brethren were seen saying their doa outside the Masjid Negara before the BERSIH memo was successfully delivered.
