A Fearful Government Turns Bully on RPK!


Update 6.30pm

Pls send this message via SMS to all your friends around Malaysia. And yes, let’s all turn up to show our solidarity with RPK. What better day than Malaysia Day.

“RPK di-tahan bawah ISA. Sebagai tanda bersatu hati, anda di-jemput menghadiri perhimpunan di-stadium Kelana Jaya pada 8 mlm 15hb Sept 2008. Sila edarkan”

‘RPK detained under ISA. Pls come to Kelana Jaya Stadium 8pm 15th September, 2008 to show solidarity for RPK’.

So this is what old Shaziman meant when he said there are “harsher” laws to deal with the websites who criticise it. Yesterday, the Cabinet issued a directive to MCMC to unblock access to online socio-political portal Malaysia Today.

According to Malaysiakini, Raja Petra Kamarudin got arrested under the Internal Security Act (ISA) at 1.10 pm today.

RPK, seen here with wife Marina.

Raja Petra is considered a threat to national security while a loose cannon like Ahmad Ismail and his like are given a slap on the wrist.

I think the government are grossly underestimating the people. They got this guy to the police station, questioned him on all kinda things…but could not find anything to properly charge him in a court of law, and so haled him up under one of the few laws that allow for DETENTION WITHOUT TRIAL.

Listen Malaysians, every time one of us is detained under ISA it is a violation of our fundamental right as human beings.

Last year it was the HINDRAF boys, this time, it is RPK, tomorrow it could be me, or you.

So, make your stand people. Say no to a police state. Say no to a bully government.

Watch what RPK said after a visit to your friendly neighbourhood police headquarters, here.

  1. They came for the leftists, but I wasn’t a leftist,

    so I didn’t say a word.

    They came for the handicapped, but I wasn’t handicapped

    so I kept quiet,

    because I didn’t want to make trouble.

    Then they came for the loners and the misfits,

    but I wasn’t a loner or a misfits,

    so I just stood and watched.

    Then they came for the Jews, but I wasn’t Jewish,

    so still I said nothing.

    And then finally they came for me.
