Withering Umno...

Umno has gone offensive again with all their available machinery.
That's about what they have left with to fight for their survival. If you have been following their maneuvers for the past months, you can see endless blatancy in power abuses. Pakatan Rakyat component parties publications has to be banned just to give their controlled mainstream media the advantage of churning and spinning lies in an all out media war.
Lets not go into our kangaroo judiciary, anti-corruption agency and the royal police force in handling certain high profile cases involving Pakatan Rakyat politicians and the people.
What really interest me was the endless propagandizing of Malay rights. They even have to stoop so low in instilling unwarranted fear of chinese dominance, malays losing their rights and land to other races and whatnot, with Perkasa in the foreground issuing seditious threats freely.
What is their underlying reason behind such maneuvers?
Umno does not have the domineering Malays support anymore. That's the main reason behind their recent outcries. Umno is desperately trying to win back the wavering and diminishing malays support and the only way they know how is to stoke racial tension.
Pakatan Rakyat may be a loosely form coalition but on the whole, they have managed to come to terms with one main aim: take over Putrajaya. Don't let the internal component party's politicking distract you..
On the other hand, what is Barisan National now? With MCA and MIC out of relevancy, eye opening revelations of the amassed wealth of Sarawak's chief minister and his family (go find out who owns Socfin Malaysia) and the shaky political situation in Sabah, BN is already dead soulfully.
Umno is still strong in terms of money and machinery. Their safe deposit at East Malaysia is beginning to waver.. The level of awareness among the East Malaysians is picking up strongly. And Najib cant afford to allow that to happen. His only way out is to call for a snap election fast while he still has the fighting chance with his safe deposit before this level of awareness become widespread.
Do expect a snap election within the next 6 months.
As for the people, I would like to believe that most of them have more or less decided on what to do with their votes...
Say No To Corruption: Say No To ISA

Abolish ISA Rally (Amcorp Mall): The Youth Has Awakened! (Updated)

The youth of today, you note, “will chart the future of Malaysia.” You say you “no longer want to be ignored and leave the future of our Malaysia at the hands of the current generation.” You “want to grab the bull by the horns... and have a say in where we go as a society and as a nation.” - Tengku Razaleigh

If you ask me for my opinion on last night rally at the Amcorp Mall, I believe the above caption would best described what I have witnessed.

It wasn't about the number of turnouts nor was it about the blatant thuggish behavior of our cops but what was evidently clear last night was the youth's turnout.

I have attended many walks and vigils to notice this positive transformation. From those who started this wave of change which brought about the political tsunami in 2008 to what it is today..

Yes, The Youth Has Awakened!

A positive sign, indeed. And this renewing call for change will soon sweep across this land once again..

The thugs came early with intention to gatecrash the party. Before long, they were occupying the tarmac area leading to the field.

Meanwhile, the vigilers gathered opposite at Amcorp Mall. Some short speeches were given before they proceed to the field.

Coming face to face with the thugs barricade. National anthem was sang. This time the thugs waited for the national anthem to finish before turning hostile.

They pushed aggressively and made few arrests when the vigilers retreated. The vigilers had no other choice but to seek refuge inside the mall. A long standoff follows before the thugs lost their patience and stormed into the mall to make more arrests.
After meeting their arrest quota for the night, the thugs left but for the vigilers, it was time to stand in solidarity with those arrested. They gathered outside the police station with heavy presence of FRU and water cannon trucks. The thugs made two more arrests there with intention to discourage people from gathering.
A long and weary night ahead...

At the end of it all, I would say....

The Youth Of Today Rocks!
