50 years of ISA: Vigil Serentak 1st August 2010, 8pm


I'm out of KL now but I should be back in time to give my support at Padang Timur. Meanwhile, here are some helpful details.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gerakan Mansuhkan ISA (GMI) and Suara Rakyat Malaysia (SUARAM) would like to invite all concerned citizens to a Candle light Vigil in conjunction with 50 years of ISA. The Vigil will be held on the 1st of August 2010 at several parts of Malaysia such as:

State Place Contact Person

Selangor Dataran MBPJ, Nalini: 019 3758912
Padang Timur
(Opposite Amcorp Mall)

Penang Speakers Square Jing Cheng: 012 7583779
Perak Dataran Bandaraya Ipoh Dr. Kumar: 019 5616807
Kedah Dataran Zero KM, Simon Ooi : 012 4202264

We demand the Government of Malaysia to Abolish the ISA as soon as possible as the barbaric and unlawful Act has existed in Malaysia for 50 years. The ISA is draconian and most importantly, it is against the fundamental human rights.

Please join us together to fight the ISA and all other detention without trial laws! Together We CAN Bring CHANGE!

GMI Secretariat will update everyone from time to time regarding the venue of the Vigils in each state mentioned above. Please bear with us. For further info, please contact Miss Nalini at 019 3758912 or 03 77843525.

Incomprehensible that some folks have to resort to tyranny to maintain their deadly stranglehold on political power. That's already a sure sign they're not fit to govern.

Antares,

I was unable to make it for the vigil as I developed a migraine on the way back from Singapore. Add to that a nasty tummy upset and you know it just isn't meant for me to be there.

I watched the videos and read blogs about it, in horror. I just cannot understand the disproportionate use of force against the weaponless men, women and children.

Thumbs down! :(
