I’ve received sms’s asking if we are going to take to the streets.
People, do not play into the hands of the authorities.
Let’s not knee-jerk.
If we are going to do any vigils or peaceful demonstrations, let these be planned.
Will keep you posted on these, if any.
What I can tell you is that Pakatan Rakyat is holding a Hari Malaysia celebration on 15th September, 2008 at the Kelana Jaya stadium to commemorate 45 years of the formation of Malaysia, since 1963. The even starts at 8pm.
We are going to utilise that event to show solidarity with RPK.
I will try to get more details of that event and update all of you when I can.
It is learnt that she has been taken by the police to the Penang police headquarters.
Tan had reported that local Umno chieftain Ahmad Ismail had allegedly said that Chinese Malaysians are “squatters” in the country.
Her report sparked a nationwide outcry, resulting in Ahmad being suspended by Umno for three years.
Sin Chew had three days ago came out strongly defended Tan, who was accused by Ahmad of misreporting his comments.
Now MP Teresa Kok joins the list of ISA victims taking the total to 3 in today's 'crackdown'. Both Tan and Teresa Kok is said to be charged under Section 73 (1) of the ISA. Why Teresa Kok? Held for stoking racial tension? Based on cooked-up allegation by the loser Khir Toyo with the help of Utusan Melayu? What about her denial and her counter action of demanding for apology from these parties acting in concert? What about the Kinrara's mosque authorities statement which cleared Teresa Kok's involvement in the said azan controversy? What they said here just doesn't justify the usage of their barbaric ISA against Teresa Kok. Again, it's based on their beliefs- their reason to believe... which can easily be subjected to Abuses. Who's next?
