PJ vigil ends in 10mins
Posted January 11, 2009on:
As usual, attend the PJ candlelight vigil to call for the abolishment of ISA. Today however, it ends within 10mins as the police and FRU came and ordered us to leave.
Delcapo lead us tonight, and he shared some message from Haris who heads back to Kuala Terengganu today. James also spoke but have to cut short his message as the police were already coming in big numbers. There is just a little more than 50 of us while the police far outnumbers us, plus there were also FRUs coming in.
The chief police for PJ announced that our gathering was illegal, and ordered us to disperse or else they’ll arrest us. Delcapo negotiated and was granted a few more minutes for us to end our day with the usual Negaraku singing. Everyone left the place soon after and no one was arrested.
Now, the questions are;
Isn’t we were already inside a closed area, why then do we need a permit?
If our gathering is illegal, why PRO ISA gathering isn’t? Whats more when they do it by the roadside, and they we even caught in the act kicked a women who disagree with them?
If the anti ISA as well as anti war vigil last night was illegal, and with Charles Santiago and a few arrested, WHY MAHATHIR & MUKHRIZ was not arrested when they do a similar gathering?
If this is not DOUBLE STANDARD then what is?
