Abraham Piper wrote a blog entry on relationship, and I can't agree more on his comment on humbleness.

10 Nov (7): First They Came...

Wednesday, November 14, 2007 read close 2 speaks

A poem attributed to Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984)

When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I wasn't a Jew.

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.

Dear friends, time to speak up.

Read it out loud here in a blog posting I came across, with faces I knew.

10 Nov (3): Head count

read close 1 speaks

theStar says 4000 people attended.

Nanyang says 4000 people attended.

Guang ming says 4000 people attended.

Orientaldaily says 4000 people attended, but left a hint saying it is in ten-of-thousand people attended.

Al-Jazeera says 10000 people (source from police) and 30000 people (source from bersih) attended.

ZAM says Al-Jazeera was having the wrong perception.

I say... why you have such big operation practically locking up the entire city, setting numerous roadblocks in and out of klang valley, all the way to Johor Bahru, if is only 4000-people gathering?

I supposed we can act like kindergarden kids and act blur :)

10 Nov (1): Pantang?

read close 0 speaks

The man said...

"Pantang saya dicabar"

"There's never been peaceful gathering"

"Such gathering caused traffic congestion in KL"


Being challenged is part of a normal process in the democratic system, as long as it is a challenge under the rights of constitution (of our country). Take note, I used the word CONSTITUTION instead of the word LAW. As many, including me, lost confident in it.

Pessimistic view of gathering is a lame excuse. The man's "family" gatherings have been countless and aggressive over the years. Memory recalls of the numerous gathering in front of the US Embassy, gathering in front of Chinese Association of Selangor, KL, etc. They even burns other people's flag. Why the man's gathering was so-called peaceful, while the honest group of citizen who wish to have a genuine peaceful gathering was rejected?

Instead of curbing the traffic congestion caused by the rally, the police instead making every citizen's head turned by setting up numerous road blocks and attempt in stopping the crowd marching into the city.

Such an irony.

Though the final arrangement failed in bringing to the venue, I'm fully in support of the motion of the call to revamp our electoral system. To be frank, it sucks.

Opposition I am not. I am a pure concerned citizen of Malaysia. An authentic one with no political intention.
