PJ Vigil: A Remarkable Recovery...

An amazing comeback! At least 200 people from all walks and of all age, cast away their fear last night and come out in solidarity to protest against the draconian ISA, totally undeterred by last Sunday's police thuggery acts.

"This is easily the sweetest vigil I have attended so far for it gives us a sense of victory over those odds that have been stacked against us. And that, made this vigil more meaningful. Yeah.. The People prevail again. Our Spirit remains unbroken. This is the heartening factor and I am extremely happy". - The Whisperer

That's about all I could summed it up. As a habitual backbencher who prefer to observe from a distance and mingling around with fellow staunch supporters and new ones, I cannot provide a detailed report as to what was been said in those speeches. Click Steest, kkitsam and pengthots for better account. There were teary eyes around. Must have been hit by this euphoria for the first time. Or perhaps by the sense of victory or maybe, the Oneness feeling.

"This is the Malaysia that I know and love. This is the Malaysia I remember as I was growing up. Without prejudice for racial background, colour discrimination, or religious ideologies, is how we should meet and greet one another - not only at vigils but every time". - Estrelita Soliano Grosse

Lita,

Cant share the joke here as it is seditious in nature.
