Long walk to freedom September 26, 2007Posted by elizabethwong in Current Affairs, Democracy, Event, History, Human Rights, Malaysia, Note2Self, Politics, Southeast Asia.
(L-R) Edmund, Amer and Jonah.
They walked the extra mile (actually it was 5 km!) to reach the Palace of Justice, when the police stopped the buses.
The plan was to meet the marchers at the PM’s department. But all good plans inevitably go awry. Buses were stopped a few miles away from the first meeting point. So some of us decided to escort them instead (we had Tian Chua’s alleged ‘killer car’ at our disposal to frighten the cops) and I decided to get off the car and walk with Edmund, my fellow Suaram Secretariat member, who’s also the chair of the Bar HR Committee. Amer (behind) was polishing his Visit Malaysia Year tour guide skills.
