7 Perkara Untuk Najib Pulihkan Imejnya Selepas 9 JULAI

Orang tua pun kena. Ini macam negara hutan, tak ada undang-undang.
  1. Laksanakan gaji minima bermula dengan RM1,500 untuk semua sektor (khususnya sektor swasta) sebagai permulaan.

  2. Wujudkan Pasar Tani dalam bentuk perniagaan di dalam bangunan mirip seperti GIANT, TESCO, CARREFOUR dan JUSCO.

Malaysian Prime Minister to Meet With Pope in Gesture to Christians

Forming ties with the Vatican would help the government demonstrate to Malaysian Christians that it respects different religions on an international level, Mr. Shamsul said. It would also contribute to Mr. Najib’s “1Malaysia” policy, which promotes national unity and inclusiveness, he added. 
A decision by Prime Minister Najib Razak to meet with Pope Benedict XVI on Monday signals a wish to mend ties with Malaysia’s Christians following a series of incidents, including the firebombing of churches, that have strained interfaith relations in this Muslim-majority nation, analysts say.
Mr. Najib is scheduled to visit Benedict at Castel Gandolfo, the pope’s summer residence near Rome, for talks that are expected to touch on the possibility of Malaysia establishing diplomatic relations with the Vatican.



"Di dalam mengusahakan sebuah rumahtangga, kehebatan seorang suami terletak pada sejauh mana dia dapat mempertahankan syariat semasa dia hidup bersama dengan isterinya. Kalau suami terlalu taat kepada isterinya dan mengikut sahaja apa kata-kata isterinya walaupun yang berlawanan dengan syariat, dia akan Allah benamkan ke dalam neraka.

Oleh yang demikian, suami hendaklah mengawasi supaya jangan sampai isterinya menguasai dia. Jangan jadi apa yang dikatakan orang, 'Queen Control'.

Lawyers want Lynas out of Malaysia

KUALA LUMPUR, July 16 — The Malaysian Bar continued today its push for Australian miner Lynas Corp to move its RM700 million rare earths refinery in Kuantan out of the country, and blasted the authorities for failing to make public the project’s radioactive risk management. It noted too the absence of Lynas Corp’s top leaders at the ground level to engage the local community who would be most directly affected by any radioactive fallout, half a month after an independent panel from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) had submitted its report and recommendations.








16 JULAI 2011

Merujuk kepada kenyataan Dato Sri Noh Omar 16 Julai 2011 dengan tajuk 'Perhimpunan PAS hanya mahu membersihkan imej Anwar' di sebuah akhbar tempatan hari ini.

KEADILAN Selangor merasakan pemikiran Timbalan Pengerusi Perhubungan Negeri UMNO Selangor ini jelas masih ketinggalan dan terpesong dari arus politik dunia masa kini. Dalam keadaan UMNO Selangor yang kehilangan arah tuju dan sedang bergelut dalam menarik sokongan rakyat komen ini nyata lahir dari fikiran yang berkecamuk, risau dan gentar.

Tuduhan propaganda yang dibuat oleh beliau dengan mengatakan bahawa jika perhimpunan susulan BERSIH 2.0 diadakan, ia hanya untuk membersihkan imej Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim merupakan satu bukti kecetekan fikiran beliau. Nampaknya kepimpinan UMNO Selangor ini sudah semakin jauh dengan gerakan rakyat ataupun 'civil society movement' - satu gerakan rakyat menuntut pilihanraya yang bersih dan adil.

How much is that marcher in the window?

KUALA LUMPUR, July 16 — Seeking to fathom why ordinary Malaysians thronged to the July 9 Bersih rally, the information ministry plans to survey some 2,000 respondents on their motivations for turning up for the march. Information Minister Datuk Seri Rais Yatim later revealed that the crux of the poll will centre on how much the respondents were paid to attend the rally for electoral reforms.

Malaysia’s Bersih & the Facade of “Clean Elections”

A foreign-funded movement for a foreign-serving agenda.
That Anwar Ibrahim himself was Chairman of the Development Committee of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) in 1998, held lecturing positions at the School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University, was a consultant to the World Bank, and a panelist at the Neo-Con lined National Endowment for Democracy’s “Democracy Award” and a panelist at a NED donation ceremony – the very same US organization funding and supporting Bersih – casts irrefutable doubt on their official agenda for “clean and fair elections.”
by Tony Cartalucci, INFOWARS IRELAND

Cyberbattle to own the ‘truth'

The truth' is still out there in cyberspace where the Bersih 2.0 rally is concerned.
Pakatan had always enjoyed a well-oiled social media network. It was first seen in action during Anwar's black eye incident and later in the first sodomy trial and subsequently the purported arsenic poisoning.
THE Bersih 2.0 rally might be over but the battle to own its truth is still being fought over social media which had become a fierce battleground.
People from both sides of the political divide have weighed in with their experiences of July 9 on Facebook, Twitter, blogs and so forth.
Some of the things uploaded now include a video clip of a man who had supposedly died, a hospital that was blasted with water cannons and a PKR activist who died of a heart problem during the rally but his death was blamed on the police.
The person who faked his death on video has been traced and identified as an Al-Arqam member from Selangor. He is said to have run off when the police sent him to hospital.
Then a supposedly “Chinese man” was seen holding a loud hailer for the man (said to fake his death) as he prayed. Eventually, the “Chinese man” had been exposed as a Selangor PKR man who is a Malay. A blogger posted his picture for viewers to judge for themselves.

Post Bersih 2.0: Beyond Political Rhetorics

Khoo Kay Peng
Parties with vested interest were quick to name winners and losers in the aftermath of Bersih 2.0. Are there any real clear winners or losers?
Ironically, a friend lamented to me that Barisan will still win the next general election through rigging. This is a hard accusation. But it draws us back to the point that the electoral process in Malaysia is far from being democratically functional.

To pass the stress test of democracy, it has to meet a few criteria. The weightage of an urban vote has to be the same with rural vote. Otherwise, the balance of power tilts towards less than 40% of rural voters who can determine who rules the country.

Second, it points us to the trust and credibility deficit of the Election Commission which is supposed to be entrusted to run and manage fair and transparent elections.


    16 Julai 2011
Pada 9 Julai 2011 rakyat Malaysia berhimpun secara aman menurut Fasal 10(1)(b) Perlembagaan Persekutuan untuk menyokong Bersih 2.0 yang menuntut pilihanraya yang bebas dan adil.

Walaupun rakyat berhimpun secara aman, pihak berkuasa KDN dan polis menggunakan kekerasan yang keterlaluan untuk menyerang dan menyuraikan rakyat yang berhimpun. Gas pemedih mata, pancutan air berkimia dan serangan fizikal dilakukan ke atas rakyat yang berhimpun secara aman pada hari tersebut.

Liberty, equality and fraternity on July 9

Che Sapienza

JULY 16 — I went to Kuala Lumpur on my own with the intention of attending the Bersih 2.0 rally as a citizen after some business meetings in the city. Having come back to this country recently after having been away for more than 20 years, I wanted to experience a re-baptism as a Malaysian.
On the morning of July 9 I was in despair. Given the heavy police lockdown of the city that had become evident the night before, how would I know where others would be gathering? I was not familiar with the streets and did not quite know how to get to any of the pre-announced meeting points, i.e. Dataran Merdeka, Sogo Shopping Centre and Masjid Jamek Kampung Baru, on my own.
Fortunately, I met Chua Jui Meng (“CJM”) of PKR and some in his group by chance. Although we had only just met for the first time, they invited me to join them. I was glad for the invitation since I “did not know how to go where.”

In memory of Teoh Beng Hock

Teoh's son Er Jia brought smiles with his cheeful disposition, while Serdang MP Teo Nie Ching read a heart-wrenching letter to her late friend.

SERI KEMBANGAN: The cute little toddler played and ran about, bringing a tinge of a smile to the crowd of serious-looking adults around him.
Clad in an orange shirt, the 17-month-old Teoh Er Jia’s cheerful disposition bore a stark contrast to the tears of his family and the sombre mood of some 400 people who gathered to commemorate the anniversary of his father’s death.
Today, marked the second year of Teoh Beng Hock’s death.
Last night, a memorial function in his honour was held at the Seri Kembangan multipurpose hall, attended by Teoh’s former employer, Selangor exco Ean Yong Hian Wah and other DAP leaders.
Throughout the event, Er Jia was the centre of attention as his mother Soh Cher Wei received praises and support from the people.

Baharuddin akan menerima nasib sama dengan Ahmad Sarbani - Mati Mengejut

Blog PenorehGetah

Baharuddin seorang perseta himpunan Bersih 2.0 yang meninggal dunia akibat serangan gas pemedih oleh pihak polis akan menerima nasib yang sama dengan Ahmad Sarbani dikategorikan "Mati Mengejut" atau mudah mati terkejut lihat asap gas pemedih mata.

Polis mengadakan pasukan bebas khas untuk menyiasat kematian seorang peserta perhimpunan Bersih 2.0 Sabtu lalu, kata Ketua Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Kuala Lumpur Datuk Ku Chin Wah.

Ketika dihubungi The Malaysian Insider, Ku berkata pasukan itu akan menjalankan siasatan berhubung kematian Baharuddin Ahmad, 56, di Hospital Kuala Lumpur selepas dilaporkan pengsan di kawasan KLCC ketika cuba melarikan diri daripada tindakan polis yang melepaskan gas pemedih mata dan air berasid.

Pasca Bersih : Najib Jangan Pandang Enteng

MUNGKIN Najib Razak bersama sepupunya Hishamuddin Hussein akan beralasan, rakyat Malaysia yang menanti kedatangannya di London dengan sepanduk berwarna kuning mengecam tindakan mereka terhadap para himpunan Bersih hanya beberapa orang saja dan perbuatan itu tidak pun dapat memecahkan butir gatal di bekalang mereka.

Itulah ulasan yang akan diberikan oleh kedua adik beradik sepupu bangsawan itu. Tetapi di dalam hati mereka hanya Tuhan saja yang tahu betapa aibnya mereka. Betapa tidak, rakyat negara sendiri mengejek kedatangan mereka. Apa yang sepatutnya mereka terima mendapat sambutan dan alu-alu rakyat Malaysia sebagai menandakan kebangaan kerana pembesar mereka mengunjungi London.

Najib tries to allay 'power-crazy' fears but trots out same old party line

Najib tries to allay 'power-crazy' fears but trots out same old party lineRounding off a controversial 4-day official visit to the UK, Prime Minister Najib Razak tried to allay concerns that he would cling to power at all costs. But it is doubtful if he managed to convince many that he would not resort to further violence in the near future.
“If you are still unhappy with the Government, let's square it out in the elections and let the people decide. It is my sacred duty as a leader to protect the lives of the people and property," Star reported Najib as saying on Saturday.
“I don't want to be the Prime Minister for one moment if I do not have the support of the people."
No new reforms, same old party line
Najib had stunned his nation with a bizarre string of decisions that ended with unpredented police violence against a civilians march for and free elections on July 9. It also sparked concern amongst the international community.

Rais mahu kaji motif sertai perhimpunan 9 Julai

KUALA LUMPUR, 16 Julai – Kementerian Penerangan, Komunikasi dan Kebudayaan sedang menjalankan kaji selidik untuk mengenal pasti motif mereka yang menyertai perhimpunan pada 9 Julai lalu.
Menterinya Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim berkata kaji selidik oleh Jabatan Penerangan dan Jabatan Hal Ehwal Khas (Jasa) itu melibatkan tiga perkara penting iaitu mengapa mereka hadir pada perhimpunan itu, imbuhan yang diterima dan perasaan mereka apabila tidak faham mengapa mereka menghadiri perhimpunan itu.
“Jadi ketiga-tiga soalan itu sedang kita ajukan tetapi tidaklah dapat disusul kepada semua, sekiranya dapat kita kumpulkan sekitar 2,000 sampel, maka ia akan memberi satu pola yang kita akan umumkan kemudian.

Najib: Demonstrasi jalanan bukan jawapan, mari selesai masa PRU

LONDON, 16 Julai – Datuk Seri Najib Razak berkata demonstrasi jalanan bukan jawapan bagi melahirkan rasa ketidakpuasan hati terhadap kerajaan kerana perbuatan itu boleh menjadi terkawal dan mungkin mengakibatkan kecederaan serta kerosakan harta benda.
“Sekiranya ada pihak yang masih tidak berpuas hati dengan kerajaan, marilah kita selesaikannya apabila tiba pilihan raya dan biar rakyat yang membuat keputusan,” katanya dipetik Bernama Online.
“Kami akan bentangkan kes kami dan pembangkang akan kemukakan kes mereka. Biar rakyat yang menentukannya,” kata Perdana Menteri (gambar) ketika berucap pada perhimpunan rakyat Malaysia di United Kingdom (UK) di sini malam tadi.
Kata Najib: “Kita tidak perlukan semua ini (demonstrasi).”

Generasi 709 Berarak Peringati Mangsa Bersih 2.0

KUALA LUMPUR 16 JULAI : Sekumpulan orang awam yang menggelar diri mereka sebagai Generasi 709 hari ini mengadakan perhimpunan aman bagi memperingati kematian seorang peserta perhimpunan Bersih 2.0, Allahyarham Baharuddin Ahmad pada 9 Julai lalu.

Kira-kira kurang 60 orang peserta perhimpunan berkenaan yang memakai pakaian bewarna kuning berarak secara aman dari Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) menuju ke Avenue K pada jam 2.00 petang tadi.

'Polis bengis macam nak makan saya'

NONETindakan polis menyuraikan perhimpunan BERSIH 2.0 genap seminggu lalu terus dikritik hebat, sehingga Sasterawan Negara Datuk A Samad Said yang terkenal dengan kelembutannya pun kini merasa amat benci kepada kerajaan.

"Sebelum (gas) ditembak, ada himpitan dari belakang, (oleh) kelompok polis juga. Jadi kami agak tersepit, seperti di (Hospital) Tung Shin, (kami) tiada alternatif jadi go through saja.

"Tidak pernah saya rasakan begitu bencinya saya pada kerajaan. Iitulah waktunya saya lebih benci," kata A Samad yang mengimbau kembali pengalamannya di KL Sentral, tempat beliau mula-mula bertembung dengan polis.

Can the police investigate itself?

Just a week ago, the police took a no-nonsense approach in locking up the city and chasing Bersih 2.0 supporters from gathering and making their way to Stadium Merdeka for a rally calling for free and fair elections.
It resulted in one death, ostensibly from a heart attack, and a hospital clouded in teargas and drenched by water cannons fired by riot police.
The death and the incident at the Tung Shin Hospital are contentious. Putrajaya has ordered a series of probes, one by the Health Ministry and three by the police.
The question is simple. Can the police investigate themselves? And what is the high-level Health Ministry committee investigating?
The ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) government already suffers from a trust deficit, with ever fewer putting their faith in it — especially after its waffling and later reneging on the offer of a stadium for the Bersih rally.
Does it need to further shoot itself in the foot by allowing the police to probe their own actions? Can the Health Ministry panel do a better job than a dedicated team of investigators?

Polis tubuh pasukan khas siasat kematian Baharuddin

KUALA LUMPUR, 16 Julai – Polis mengadakan pasukan bebas khas untuk menyiasat kematian seorang peserta perhimpunan Bersih 2.0 Sabtu lalu, kata Ketua Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Kuala Lumpur Datuk Ku Chin Wah.
Ketika dihubungi The Malaysian Insider, Ku berkata pasukan itu akan menjalankan siasatan berhubung kematian Baharuddin Ahmad, 56, di Hospital Kuala Lumpur selepas dilaporkan pengsan di kawasan KLCC ketika cuba melarikan diri daripada tindakan polis yang melepaskan gas pemedih mata dan air berasid.
Pagi tadi, keluarga Baharuddin yang diwakili oleh abangnya Major (R) Kassim Ahmad dan anaknya Azhar Kassim menyerahkan memorandum kepada Ketua Polis Negara Tan Sri Ismail Omar meminta agar diadakan siasatan segera.
PKR pula diwakili oleh anggota Majlis Pimpinan Pusatnya Sivarasa Rasiah dan Naib Presiden N Surendran manakala Lawyers for Liberty pula diwakili Eric Paulsen dan Renuka T Bala dan Warga Aman diwakili oleh Pengerusinya Rajaretinam serta  Lee Khai Loon dari Youth for Change.

Anak-anak ‘BERSIH 2.0’

"Berkerut-kerut dahi anak sulung saya menatap berita saluran al-Jazeerah versi Inggeris. “Kenapa peserta ‘Bersih’ tidak melawan balik bila ditendang dan dipukul polis?” soalnya tidak puas hati dengan nada amarah. Reaksi spontannya jarang terpacul dalam bahasa melayu. “Tak boleh kakak, pihak penganjur dah pesan kita berjalan secara aman dan kita tak perlukan sebarang provokasi,” saya menjawab.

Dia masih tidak puas hati, “tapi itu hak manusia, kita perlu pertahankan diri bila dikasari tanpa sebab. Polis zalim, kenapa guna gas pemedih mata dan air berasid kepada rakyat Malaysia?”. Matanya berkaca melihat peserta ‘Bersih 2.0’ diperlakukan sewenangnya oleh manusia yang saya kira ‘kurang cerdik/tidak cerdik’. Saya sekadar tersenyum kelat, “jika kita melawan polis, mereka punya alasan untuk mengasari peserta ‘Bersih’ yang lain. Kesianlah kepada pakcik makcik warga tua, wanita dan kanak-kanak yang turut serta”. Sejak pagi Sabtu itu anak-anak kehairanan melihat saya, suami dan sahabat-sahabat tidak lekang membaca berita perkembangan terkini dari tanahair. “Ada perhimpunan penting di Malaysia hari ini untuk menuntut keadilan,” saya jelaskan. Mereka masih tidak dapat menghargai kenapa disuruh memakai baju kuning pagi itu dan berkumpul di rumah sahabat saya untuk berbincang perihal “Bersih’. Jumlah kami yang tak berapa kerat menjadikan himpunan kami tak semeriah di London, New York, Melbourne dan Dublin.

PAS lancar kempen teruskan memontum Bersih 2.0

A tribute to Malaysians

Lim Ka Joy

JULY 16 — Much as our previous elections have been declared free and fair, we have received reports from election observers that reveal a number of weaknesses in the electoral process that have to be addressed if we want Malaysia to be a truly democratic country.
Have we been voting or participating in what we perceive to be a fair electoral process?
My contention is in regards to the recent 10th Sarawak state election. If [1]the election were free and fair as claimed, then why would [2]YB Wong Ho Leng, the state assemblyman for Bukit Assek, table a motion calling for Sarawak State Assembly to condemn bribery, corruption and money politics in the April 16 State Election and establish a committee to investigate alleged vote-buying?
YB Wong added that the practice of vote-buying must stop to ensure the purity of the electorate and ensure the sanctity of the election process (Never mind the fact that the motion was rejected by the Speaker on the grounds it contained a matter in the Federal legislative list and it was not signed by YB Wong himself).

Pasca Bersih : Propaganda murahan tidak laku

Demokrasi mempunyai dua aspek.  Pertama-tama, sebagai sebuah sistem dan bentuk negara dan kedua sebagai nilai-nilai universal yang diperjuangkan demi kemanusiaan.  Islam lebih kepada sebuah agama dan aturan hidup bermasyarakat, tidak berbicara tentang sistem, apalagi bentuk sebuah negara.  Di Eropah pula, ide demokrasi dikembangkan melalui sekularisme (Niccolo Machiavelli), Negara Kontrak (Thomas Hobbes), pengasingan kuasa (John Locke) yang disempurnakan (Baron de Montesquieu), kedaulatan rakyat dan kontrak sosial (Jean-Jacques Rousseau).  Doughlas Lummis kemudian datang dengan ide demokrasi radikal tentang perlunya meredefinisi demokrasi, kerana demokrasi kini telah menggantungkan maknanya pada para demagog.  Katanya, "Democracy doesn't means 'feeling' powerful.  It means holding real power…Radical democracy describes the adventure of human beings creating, with their own hands, the conditions for their freedom".

Lawyer in Bersih tee arrested

Emeric Teo was having a drink at a Starbucks outlet in Kuching when some 30 policemen confronted him.

PETALING JAYA: A week has passed since the Bersih 2.0 rally but the arrests continue. Emeric Teo, a lawyer, was picked up in Kuching this morning for wearing a yellow Bersih 2.0 T-shirt in public.
Teo and a group of PKR members and other lawyers were at The Spring, a popular mall in Kuching, to publicise an online petition for the release of the six Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) members detained under the Emergency Ordinance (EO).
According to PKR Batu Lintang assemblyman, See Chee How, the group was having coffee at Starbucks and chatting to patrons when a group of about 30 policemen approached them.
“All of us were wearing yellow but Teo was the only one wearing a Bersih T-shirt,” See told FMT.
“The police took him to the Kuching police divisional headquarters. We were told that he has been arrested under Section 47 of the Societies Act 1966.”

Marina Mahathir: I didn't tell dad I was marching

Marina Mahathir, eldest daughter of former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad, is convinced that the government had handled last Saturday's Bersih 2.0 rally “extremely badly”.
“Many leaders, both in the public and private sectors, are saying the government could have avoided the Bersih 2.0 (fallout) by not making such a big issue out of it,” said Marina.

Snubbed in UK, off to the Vatican, but Najib still faces new Scorpene revelations

Snubbed in UK, off to the Vatican, but Najib still faces new Scorpene revelationsEmbattled Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak is learning the hard way that it never rains but it pours.
In England, where he has just been snubbed in the most gentle way by the Queen for cracking down on a peaceful protest, Najib is off next to the Vatican to see the Pope.
But flying into Kuala Lumpur are French lawyers, armed with new information from a submarines probe of "bigger" kickbacks paid by arms-maker DCN to "extremely high-level" Malaysian officials, which could pin down the Malaysian premier.
"If you say extremely high-level, I don't see how the implication can be avoided that it involves the main guy behind the deal, which is of course the minister of Defense who at that time was Najib Razak," PKR vice president Tian Chua told Malaysia Chronicle.

Pasca Bersih: Polis tubuh dua pasukan siasat insiden Hospital Tung Shin

KUALA LUMPUR, 16 Julai — Polis menubuhkan dua pasukan khas bagi menyiasat dakwaan 11 doktor Hospital Tung Shin di sini bahawa gas pemedih mata dilepaskan dalam kawasan hospital itu ketika pihak berkuasa menangani perhimpunan 9 Julai lalu.
Satu pasukan khas akan menyiasat dakwaan doktor-doktor manakala satu lagi pasukan akan menyiasat secara menyeluruh kejadian itu.
“Kita (polis) akan menyiasat dahulu perkara yang berlaku termasuk mengambil keterangan daripada doktor, saksi dan petugas-petugas (polis) yang terlibat pada masa itu,” kata Ketua Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Kuala Lumpur Datuk Ku Chin Wah dipetik laporan Bernama Online hari ini.
Isnin lepas, Lembaga Hospital Tung Shin memaklumkan bahawa insiden pelepasan gas pemedih mata dalam kawasan hospital berkenaan tidak berlaku ketika perhimpunan 9 Julai.
Bagaimanapun 11 doktor mendakwa sebaliknya.

Pasca Bersih : Kebangkitan golongan intelektual muda

Saya merasakan bahawa kita perlu memberikan konotasi yang kritikal terhadap istilah golongan intelektual muda agar setanding dengan nilai dan fungsi golongan ini terhadap masyarakat.  Saya tidak mahu menyempitkan ruang lingkup perbincangan dengan hanya meletakkan latar belakang pengajian sama ada formal atau tidak formal sebagai tanda aras golongan ini.

Pada pandangan saya, apa yang perlu diberi perhatian ialah sejauhmana mereka yang mempunyai latar belakang pengajian ini memberi kesan terhadap masyarakat dan negara.  Raja Ahmad Aminullah dalam bukunya Minda Tertawan meletakkan lima ciri penting golongan intelektual, termasuklah memiliki pengetahuan tinggi, mempunyai keupayaan untuk menelaah permasalahan masyarakatnya, mampu mengemukakan saranan-saranan untuk pembaikan, mempunyai komitmen dan iltizam yang tinggi terhadap masyarakat dan mempunyai keupayaan serta keberanian untuk menyampaikan hujah dan nasihat-nasihat kepada penguasa!

Tuntutan ini terkandung bersama 4 lagi tuntutan lain dalam memorandum yang diserahkan di Ibu Pejabat Polis Bukit Aman hari ini.


Perarakan “BERSIH ” 9 Julai 2011 Sabtu lalu  telah pun tamat dan ia memberi impak yang amat bermakna. Semangat dan kehendak sebenar rakyat telah pun dizahirkan.

Tak ada sebuah rumah pun atau kedai yang dibakar ! Tak ada kereta yang dipecahkan. Tak ada nyawa yang terkorban disebabkan tindak-tanduk pendemo.  Ini menunjukkan penemuan bom-bom petrol, parang dan sebagainya oleh polis sebelum ini adalah lakunan polis semata-mata , untuk menakut-nakutkan rakyat.

Sepatutnya pihak PDRM merasa malu kerana tindakan jahat dan bodoh mereka begitu mudah  dibaca oleh orang ramai. Sedarlah PDRM!,  orang ramai  sedang mentertawakan kamu!  Orang ramai sedang membenci perbuatan zalim kamu !!

709: Letter to the rakyat

Dan K

JULY 16 — Dear rakyat Malaysia,
I would like to offer you my deepest congratulations and respect from the bottom of my heart. In countless ways, 709 is a significant point for you, for me and, most importantly, for our beloved country.  What I saw from you on July 9 can be summarised in three words — justice, diversity and unity.
[Mass noun] just behaviour or treatment
• The quality of being fair and reasonable
• The administration of the law or authority in maintaining this
Rakyat, you walked for justice even on a day when justice seemed to be non-existent. You and I walked for electoral reforms — fundamental reforms that would affect our children and us.
I was not sure what to expect when I stepped out of my house to make my way to the city. All I knew was that I would walk because I believed in justice.

Of course Pakatan backs Bersih

A Hindu NGO notes that since the opposition is the aggrieved party, there is nothing wrong with them backing Bersih 2.0.
PETALING JAYA: Since Pakatan Rakyat parties are the ones which suffer, it makes perfect sense for them to back a call for free and fair elections, said a Hindu NGO.
“Common sense must prevail as to why the opposition is with Bersih 2.0. The opposition is the affected party,” said Hindu Sevai Sangam secretary-general KK Subramaniam.
“There is nothing wrong in them joining when there are many truths to Bersih 2.0′s claims. Barisan Nasional has enjoyed itself with the election discrepancies while claiming that elections are free and fair.
“Bersih 2.0′s demands are genuine and must be addressed otherwise the people will still defy all laws and go to the streets,” he added in a statement.

Tsunami politik di Johor dalam p’raya 13

Ini bermakna 11 kerusi Parlimen sahaja yang kekal di tangan BN teramsuk kerusi Pagoh yang dimenangi Timbalan Perdana Menteri Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
PETALING JAYA: Tsunami politik diramal berlaku di Johor dalam pilihan raya umum  ke 13 nanti membabitkan kerusi parlimen dan dewan negeri, menurut satu NGO yang menghadiri perjumpaan tertutup anjuran Majlis Keselamatan Negara (MKN) di Johor Baru baru-baru ini.
Perjumpaan itu dihadiri kira-kira 600 ahli NGO Melayu dan penasihat agama kerajaan Johor, Datuk Noh Gadut anjuran Majlis Keselamatan Negara cawangan Johor..
Dengan jangkaan 80 peratus pengundi Cina menyokong pembangkang dan perpecahan di kalangan pengundi Melayu, 11 kerusi Parlimen diramal dimenangi calon dari Pakatan Rakyat.
Ini bermakna 11 kerusi Parlimen sahaya yang kekal di tangan BN teramsuk kerusi Pagoh yang dimenangi Timbalan Perdana Menteri Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
“Walapun Johor kekal di tangan BN tetapi perbezaan majoriti kerusi sangat tipis iaitu hanya dua kerusi,” kata NGO itu.

Yes Mr PM, it’s ‘all about politics’

Najib knows the truth behind July 9, 2011. But his conviction is simply to weak stand up for the truth.

The dust on the crackdown by the Barisan Nasional government against a rally seeking to reform the electoral system will never settle.
In exactly a week since election watchdog Bersih 2.0 held its “Walk for Democracy” last Saturday, much dirt has surfaced, all pointing in the direction of the BN leadership under Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak.
Not only did Najib try his very best to play out Bersih 2.0 or the Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections comprising 62 non-governmental organisations, he unwittingly ended up making the biggest mistake in his mere two-years of premiership, when he pitted the police force against the rakyat.
Whilst the rally succeeded in bringing together 50,000 concerned and worried Malaysians, it also made history when 1,600 participants were arrested, the largest haul in a day in the history of this country.
As far as the premier goes, he is the least interested in what the July 9, 2011, rally has to teach.
Instead, Najib has worsened matters by spewing lies after lies, ending up only to make a fool of himself. He is doing all he can to wipe off the July 9 rude awakening.

Pasca Bersih : DAP sedia tampil saksi tragedi Hospital Tung Shin

 Empat pemimpin DAP bersedia menjadi saksi berhubung penafian pihak berkuasa yang menyembur dan menembak gas pemedih mata ke dalam Hospital Tung Shin pada perhimpunan Bersih 2.0, Sabtu lepas, kerana keempat-empat mereka berada di situ sewaktu kejadian. Setiausaha Publisiti Kebangsaan DAP Tony Pua berkata beliau bersama Ahli Parlimen Serdang Teo Nie Ching; Ahli Parlimen Bukit Bendera Liew Chin Tong dan Setiausaha Politik kepada Setiausaha Agung DAP Zairil Khir Johari bersedia untuk memberi keterangan pada bila-bila masa.
“Kami berada di perkarangan hospital ketika diserang – kami akan menampilkan saksi yang melihat dengan mata kepala sendiri, ditambah pula dengan bukti-bukti oleh video dan gambar,” katanya dalam satu kenyataan.

Dilema Melayu: Ketinggalan tetapi lalai

16 JULAI — Orang Melayu hari ini berdepan dengan satu suasana yang menimbulkan dilema kepada mereka. Memandangkan kepesatan perubahan yang berlaku, orang Melayu ada yang cuba bersuara tetapi setiap orang Melayu bersuara terutama sekali tentang hak mereka walaupun termaktub dalam Perlembagaan, mereka akan dilabel rasis, sedangkan dia menyaksikan satu demi satu tuntutan daripada bangsa lain ditunaikan sehingga yang tidak mereka tuntut pun diberikan.
Orang Melayu difahamkan bahawa apa jua yang tersirat dalam Dasar Ekonomi Baru dulu tersurat dalam Modal Ekonomi Baru dalam bentuk tindakan afirmatif berlandaskan keperluan dan merit.

Pasca Bersih : IPCMC mesti diadakan semula

KUALA LUMPUR, 16 Julai: Tragedi keganasan polis pada himpunan Bersih 9 Julai lalu menuntut Suruhanjaya Bebas Aduan dan Salahlaku Polis (IPCMC) mesti diadakan semula.
“Suruhanjaya ini perlu dihidupkan semula memandangkan imej polis semakin tercalar di pandangan dunia,” kata AJK PAS Pusat, Ustaz Idris Ahmad kepada Harakahdaily.
Katanya, sebagai sebuah badan penguatkuasa di negara ini, polis sepatutnya perlu menunjukkan sebagai sebuah badan yang berwibawa.
Menurutnya, pelanggaran hak asasi dan undang-undang berlaku dengan sewenang-wenangnya, seolah-olah negara ini tidak mempunyai undang-undang dan prosedur tangkapan.
Beliau berkata, penguatkuasa yang wujud pilih kasih ke atas rakyat Malaysia kerana berlainan ideologi telah berlaku dalam  himpunan 9 Julai lalu.

Pasca Bersih : 'Pelacur pun bercuti untuk sertai BERSIH'

NONEPeguam PAS Mohamed Hanipa Maidin mendakwa, beliau difahamkamkan perhimpunan BERSIH 2.0 genap seminggu lalu mendapat sokongan pelbagai lapisan masyarakat, sehingga terdapat pelacur yang mengambil cuti untuk menyertainya.

"Pada 9 Julai, sebelum perhimpunan, (saya) ada (bersembang dengan) seorang (aktivis) Cina buat tinjauan. Beliau terlibat dengan sebuah NGO, menemuramah pelacur di Lorong Haji Taib.

"Beliau kata, ada pelacur minta cuti untuk bersama-sama dengan perhimpunan BERSIH. Saya diberitahu begitu. Saya percaya dia (aktivis) bercakap benar kerana beliau bersama dengan NGO.

"Kalau pelacur minta cuti untuk bersama dengan BERSIH, ini (menunjukkan) BN dah teruk. Pelacur pun tak sokong BN," katanya disambut dengan gelak ketawa dan tepukan kira-kira 200 hadirin yang hadir dalam ceramah di Gombak malam tadi.

Malaysian Prime Minister Defends Muzzling of Protests
LONDON — If the Malaysian government allowed street demonstrations of the kind seen in Kuala Lumpur last weekend, the country would face protracted instability, Prime Minister Najib Razak said Wednesday.
Mr. Najib spoke after thousands of advocates of electoral change defied a government ban and held a large street protest Saturday, during which the police fired tear gas and water cannons and arrested nearly 1,700 demonstrators.
“Public order is very important in Malaysia because if we allow for street demonstrations, there’s no end to it, there will be another group that wants to demonstrate,” Mr. Najib told a small group of international reporters Wednesday in London, where he was to meet the British prime minister and attend an investment conference.

When the government-controlled mainstream media proved to be lopsided, most of us turned to independent news portal, blog sites and social media platform. #Bersih became a global trending topic on Twitter during the period leading up to the day and long after it.
