Rakyat pantang dicabar! November 10, 2007

Last night, Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi stupidly said, “Saya pantang dicabar” (I will not be challenged by BERSIH).

That no doubt pissed a lot of fence sitters off.

artmalaysiaprotestapgi.jpgToday, 50,000 people rallied in Kuala Lumpur (see AFP photo on right – WOW!), braving rain and massive police force to reach the Royal Palace in order to hand in the memorandum on free and fair elections. The police were helpless when confronted by a feisty sea of yellow.

Still applying eye drops. If we can outnumber the police by 100 to 1. Then the UMNaziO will sure collapse.

pm has never been stupid.

He is a complete moron. How else you explain his gang can only spew garbage.

Hope this is not the last of the wave. Changes from such perverted govt. can only come with people’s sagacious resolution – that is if it was prevailing and persistent.

Good luck folks ..

power of a country rest with its people not the government.

Whatever is it? I hope this is for the benefit of all.

We would not want a political agenda behind all these. no hanky panky.. 🙂

Let’s make sure the future of all are secure..

My Malaysia, land of free..

Hi Liz,

Bumped into you yesterday at Central Market. You might not remember me, but I was with Howsy at the Corus Hotel Forum in September.

You might want to check the bloggers account of the rally, (mine is titled The Yellow Revolution Part II), Capt. (Ancient Mariner) has posted it first.

What a success.

Hie, first time visiting your blog.

Skimmed thru some entries and i couldn’t help but to say that politics are messy. @.@

SIL says no to BERSIH march, Bodoh says no. SIL says price of petrol to go up, Bodoh says yes. Who is actually in control of Msia?

Woww.. I can now see the flicker of hope and success in this nation. Bravo to my fellow Malaysians who walked for justice, peace and good governance. It looks like DiGi’s widest coverage but of course this one is for a bigger change. Inilah masa untuk berubah. BERSIH, always the smarter choice!

The gravel face one has to eat his words. One feels amused too….aw, was he misquoted over that?

17. Lydia - November 12, 2007

I regret not going and NOT be part of history…though if UMNO prevails, this will never be in the history books. Still….

Damn, I regret it.

I am so proud to be a malaysian, altough i did not go there, i have never felt more close to my malay , chinese brothers , this is true unity , I am proud to be a “bangsa Malaysia” Daulat Tuanku, 10-11 the most important day in our generations history,

Shame on the govt. using such dirty tactics. Road block in Sg.Besi lasted for almost 12 hours. I pity the ppl fr. the south coming up to KL. Saw a ambulance blarring away… with no way to go. Lanes were filled up to the emergency lane. Pure madness, I wonder how long was the jam… did it reach Seremban?

[…] your best bet is to get news online. Jeff Ooi has good reports and pictures of the event. So has Elizabeth Wong. The Malaysiakini site was overwhelmed by readers on Saturday night but is up again now. […]

That’s the most ridiculous comment I ever heard from someone who suppose to lead us?


22. -angel- - November 12, 2007

transparency in election so that everyone will see what they have contributed to their country.

if the words “Malaysia Boleh” is to be used, i would say it is now – time for some reform.

all we, citizens, are asking is simple – fair and justice. if the mainstream cant show a good example, who will?

23. monsterball - November 13, 2007

I wonder how many here did walk the talk.
I did!!

24. monsterball - November 13, 2007

Standing for few hours..walking more tan a hour soaking wet with heavy rain….40,000 of us..never gave up.
Saw so many older than me….walking with determinations to withstand the rain….pains and aches…no fear for anything..especially FRU.
We walked our talks. Did you?

We Will be heard!

Come rain or shine!
We’ll march the line, our arms entwined!
Whatever the color, we really don’t mind!
Whatever race, creed or rank, in purpose we bind!
Whatever it takes, in spirit or in kind!
We Will be heard, we Will Not be undermined!

We do not wish to think, or speak, or write with moderation.
We are in earnest. We will not equivocate.
We will not excuse. We will not retreat a single inch.
And we Will be heard!
We Will have our say, and we Will be heard!
The future belongs to us. We Will be heard!

I am crying because I’m so proud of all of you. Yellow is definitely NOT the colour of cowardice this time around.
