Penang DAP Abolish The ISA Ceramah

Before I write on the Anti ISA ceramah, lets read some of the recent remarks by some arrogant morons of this country.

PEKAN, Sept 19 (Bernama) -- Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak hopes that the release of Seputeh member of parliament Teresa Kok from the Internal Security Act (ISA) Friday will help subdue the furore over detentions under the Act.

The deputy prime minister said he welcomed Kok's release if the police felt that it was the appropriate thing to do.

What does this moron think when he make this remark? Does he mean that if we did not make any furore then Teresa will not be released even though she has not committed any crime that warrants the ISA arrest? What about the others detainees, there are as much furore about their ISA detention, why are they not released?

Malaysiakini - Utusan dares Kok to take lie detector test. At a packed press conference, the Malay daily reporter asks if the Seputeh MP would take the test to prove her innocence. Read full story at Malaysiakini here.

Can these people never able to just admit that they are wrong and say sorry? What are they trying to pull, a bullock cart trying to pull the cows?

I am just afraid that this country is moving on the reverse gear and these morons are thinking that they are moving in the space age.

Penang DAP Anti ISA Ceremah

Seeing the crowd at this ceramah can show Najib that the people are still furious with the ISA act. The usual crowd for previous such ceramah or forum will not receive more then 2 or 3 hundred people, but tonight Anti ISA ceramah attracted over 1,500 people.

The people are well aware that the ISA does not belong to the 21st century anymore and moreover they are not used as intended but to strike fear among the rakyat and against any opposition to the ruling government.

There are over 10 speakers who spoke in this Anti ISA ceramah. PKR send two speakers and one of them is the MP for Balik Pulau Yusmadi Yusoff. PAS send a convoy of supporters with their Parit Buntar MP, Dr. Mujahid Yusof Rawa as their speakers.
DAP have, Jeff Ooi, Chow Koon Yeow, Chong Eng, Liew Chin Tong, DAP vice president, Penang CM #2 and Penang Chief Minister.

The speaker I had admired and think is the best for the night is Dr.Mujahid Yusof of PAS. He speak base on a true Malaysian platform and not on race or religion. He was very supportive for any causes concerning Malaysian, irrespective of their race or religion. I first met him at the Penang Police HQ on the night when journalist Tan Hoon Cheng was arrested under the ISA. He was there to lend his support as well as on behalf of PAS.

Every speakers explain the reasons why the ISA has to be repealed and how it is being misused by UMNO/BN for their political enhancement. All were calling for the immediate release of Raja Petra, the Hindraf 5 and more than 60 others still in Kamunting.

Teresa Kok gave a short message recorded in KL and brought back by Liew Chin Tong. Overall it is a very inspiring ceramah that let the public knows the existing of the draconian ISA and how it is being manipulated and used by UMNO/BN for their own survival.

The last speaker is Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng. He started off by condemning the wrongful use of the ISA arrest against Teresa Kok, journalist Tan Hoon Cheng and Raja Petra. He blasted UMNO/BN that they used the ISA because that they are weak now and fear of losing power. He stressed that the reasons given by the home minister for the arrest are ridiculous and make the laughing stock in the eyes of the world. He take the opportunity to speak about the development for Penang and will make Penang a well development state and set the best example in governing for the whole country. Penang will be the first state in the country to provide free wi-fi internet service within two years.

Two quotes for the night:

"There is only one race and that is the Human Race"

"Abolished the ISA, Abolished UMNO/BN"

Before I end I would like to mention that there are still 65 people held under this draconian ISA. You can see the list of ISA detainees here.

Nobody deserves detention without trial. If you want to support the repeal of the ISA please sign the Petition.
