Note from Nat Tan: Solidarity with Whistleblowers October 24, 2007Posted by elizabethwong in Current Affairs, Democracy, Human Rights, Malaysia, Note2Self, Politics.
On the eve of the deadline to handover all original footage of the Lingam-Fairuz tape, or otherwise face a jail-term of 2 years, Anwar Ibrahim’s aide, Nik Nazmi was quoted by Malaysiakini as saying:-
“We won’t do that (release the full clip) until our demand all this while is met (for a guarantee of protection and legal immunity for the sources).”
This is not just about Anwar, KeADILan, the opposition, politics or any of that stuff.
It’s about standing with those who stood up to uphold justice.
It’s about showing those who put themselves on the line for a better Malaysia that they are not alone.
It’s about refusing to let corruption wash over our homes like some black night.
The ACA will probably come calling sometime in the morning. We expect a big presence there waiting to send the right message – go after the criminals, not the whistleblowers.
Venue: DSAI’s office – 17, Jalan 16/2, Section 16, PJ.
Time: 10.30 am, Thursday, October 25th.
Please help spread the word.
