Gerakan, make this your last stand – press statement

 Update: This statement was published in Malaysian Insider front page in toto this morning. Since it is now not available in front page, i will post  the link.

 

This is my press statement today:

 

 As head of Parti Gerakan Cheras,  I strongly condemn using the archaic and draconian Internal Security Act to arrest the three citizens of Malaysia, namely raja Petra, Tan Hoon Cheng  and Teresa Kok.

 

 My members and I demand the immediate release of  these three. If they have committed any wrong, they should be charged in court and not through detention without trial.

 

 The three year suspension on the UMNO division chairman who had reportedly uttered certain seditious word, and the arrest of the reporter under ISA who reported what the division head has allegedly said, smacked of double standard and differential application of the law.

 

This is like warning the person who set the fire  but arresting the one who reported the fire.

 

 By doing so, the government is further eroding its own support base, just to appease the interest of certain quarters. And this is not the way to regain people’s hearts. On the contrary, whatever little respect that people may still  have for the government would be totally lost.

 

 Component parties which took part in the BN council meeting recently to demand action must be wondering why things have come to such as a stage; why mild action is taken against the powerful ’warlord’ and stern action against the other helpless reporter. They must be wondering what actually went wrong. Parties like Gerakan, which have demanded that government  applies the laws of the country on those who uttered seditious remarks, must be surprised that instead, the whistle blower was being detained.

 

Members of these parties are asking what is happening? Is this what is perceived to be fair? Is this what true justice is? Even a child would have know better .

 

These parties must make a strong stand now. The future of the country is in the hands of  leaders of these parties. They must demand the unconditional release of these people arrested under ISA, failing which, they will have no choice but to shift their support away from UMNO and quit BN. 

 

As a grassroot member of Party Gerakan, I am calling upon the leaders of PGRM  to make this one last stand and make this their mission to free these scapegoats from the draconian laws. Release the detainees or Gerakan to quit!

 

 If the party fails to do this, then it would lose the little credibility that is still left, and I forewarn that there would be a great exodus of members out of the party

    I think you are missing the point. It is not that the Gerakan leader are ‘stupid” and cannot see what is coming. Isn’t it obvious to you that it is their business interest that they need to protect and that is the only reason why they cannot pull out from BN. So don’t waste your time with these leaders…..

    You are not only right Dr Hsu, but DAMN right!

    For all it’s worth, this is the last mile for Gerakan. As a boy and a Penangites, my dad alway told me Gerakan is the party for the people, but now, it seems the party is only good as an errand boy for it’s master.

    Unfortunately, this is the perception of the people and Gerakan. Stand for your values or be irrelevant and hold your peace.

    What is the stand of Gerakan for this gross injustice to Tan Hoon Cheng and her family?

    Just name ONE action done by the government that got all Malaysians say….
    “what a wonderful job…well done”
    I guess..it will be UMNO and BN for or against such political acts.
    And really..every child can see…actions by UMNO are calculative…sneaky and meant to have advantages after advantages for them only.
    All have failed..these 6 months.
    Now the big one is on.
    Doc have said it well in previous post….be calm and do not take to the streets.
    I guess..some heard that loud and clear…are planning non violence candle light virgils.
    Wonderful ..smart Malaysians….that;s what left for all to be….to beat this sickening cruel game.
    Guys like me…close to 70 years old…have seen it all…..but never seen so smart Malaysians voting for strong oppositions and now.. ready to for for change in next election.
    UMNO knows this very well.
    So expect the worst. Be brave. Be very brave and calm.
    This will pass off ….with all our prayers.
    What a wonderful month to practice….forgiveness…strength to the victims and families.
    Sing out loud in mosques…churches and temples….with holy songs from your hearts….for all good things to come soon.
    You know it is true…because we will make that come true….and then Malaysians will feel so proud of themselves.
    You are very lucky Malaysians. YES YOU ARE!!

Oppose all form of injustice without fear or favour. Oppose all who stir up racial issue. Lets us Appeal to the government, a government of all malaysian, to act fairly and without consideration of political affiliation. A wrong is a wrong whether it was commited by a member of umno, gerakan, mca or even a man on the street. Our country law must be enforce fairly to all. If this is not done, ask why?. Lets ask our government not to use unjust law like isa on malaysian. Do charge them in court if they have done wrong and put forward the evidence. If not do ask why? Lets all malaysian pray for a fair and just malaysia which is governed by a people government in full adherence of our constitution and its true spirit.

    To ISA the innocent Sin Chiew reporter is a bad mistake. It has inflamed the Chinese community who will direct their wrath at Gerakan and MCA. The detention of Tan and Teresa will do to MCA what the detention of Hindraf 5 has done to MIC. As for Gerakan, it will be wiped out. If Gerakan is smart it will threaten to leave BN now unless Tan is released.

    Make no mistake, Ms. Tan will be released soon. But Gerakan will not be able to claim credit for it because it will not stick its neck out.

    Dr. Hsu,

    I indulged in a little creative writing to dispel my gloominess caused by the political situation in Malaysia.

    Here is the result.

    Hurricane Ike with gale force winds of 110 mph is scheduled to make landfall in Galveston, Texas at 1 am, September 13 (Malaysia time: 2 pm Sept 13).

    Ike, a 600-mile wide fearsome storm had already forced 1.2 million people to evacuate and flee their homes. The powerful storm is set to pummel the state of Texas for 36 hours after landfall and disrupt the lives of 13 million people along its
    ferocious path. Property damage from massive flooding and destructive winds is projected to cost billions. So far there are no reports of human casualties.

    Halfway around the world, in once idyllic and tropical Malaysia, a catastrophic storm has already made landfall and is not abating.

    Hurricane ISA slammed into Kuala Lumpur on September 12, 1.10 p.m. So far it had claimed 3 casualties; a prominent blogger, an opposition politician, and a Chinese newspaper journalist.

    ISA, the draconian Internal Security Act of Malaysia, allows its government to jail, without trial, people who are perceived to be a threat to national security. This repressive law, a relic from the British colonial era, is poised to further threaten and assault the liberties of Malaysia’s 25 million citizens in the coming days.

    Unlike Hurricane Ike which is an act of God, Hurricane ISA is man-made. It is created by corrupt, scared, and vengeful government leaders who act like God, and play God with people’s lives. ISA has already toppled the institutions of justice and freedom in Malaysia. Its destructive power continues to split families apart, silences freedom of expression, sours investor sentiment, and shatters any hope of a sustained economic recovery. Also at stake is the trust, confidence, optimism, hopes and dreams of the citizens of Malaysia for a better government.

    People in Texas are praying for their safety and for Ike to quickly dissipate. In a few days, blue skies will re-appear and they begin the task of rebuilding, fueled by a spirit of confidence and a resolve that no hurricane can ever blow away.

    Will the people of Malaysia be so fortunate? Will another political tsunami ensure hurricanes like ISA disappear from their lives forever? Will their hopes and dreams remain intact?

    Come September 16, will their prayers for a better Malaysia be answered? Will a political hurricane named Ibrahim emerge to blow away all the dirty rotten scoundrels holding high office?

    I am utterly angry with the ways things are progressing in the country, and as a person who love Gerakan, this incident will be like hammering the nails into the coffin, as people will direct their anger to Gerakan which is impotent to do anything inside BN. Why should it still remains there, I am as puzzled as you people outside.

    I am not a Malaysian but I have friends in Umno, PAS, PKR, political parties that attracts Malay as members. Also, I have Malay friends that not belongs to any political party.

    Malay by nature are very simple people, well mannered and helpful.

    But unfortunately, such good nature was being manipulated by politicians of all races to satisfy their objectives rather for the welfare of Malaysian at large, where Malay form the majority. Such manipulations, whether conciously or unconciously, had resulting in marginalisation within and amongst races.

    Right thinking Malaysian, either with political or no political affiliation have to a certain extent, realise such manipulations, as what you all witnessed in 308 & PP elections.

    Logically, those in power and position had a hard knock on their heads but their hearts ruled over their heads in facing such kind of situation. Thus we see reactions of issuing threats, non-sensicle statements and decisions that overshadowed rational minds.

    Of course such reactions could have effects on Malaysians tone down their critics for a while, but definitely not forever.

    So, issuing threats should not be the way as in any democracy, rakyat can use their last defence, ie voting power to elect the leaders that they want.

    Truths will prevail ultimately, those in power and positions should realise this and rakyat has the final say.

    If the first line of leadership is taken in, the second must take its place; if the second line falls, the third must rise, and so on until every Malaysian stands up to be counted and to resist injustice.

    Dr Hsu,

    I am a near veteran of your Party, I joined when our venerable Tun Lim was our mentor. I felt very proud to be a Gerakan member then but not now, especially before the 308 GE, I felt ashamed and guilty conscious and gave up my service to be the operation Director for one of the constituency in Penang, for the Gerakan candidacy. I felt ashamed of facing the people who had supported us in the last election, being a Gerakaner , I couldn’t act against my conscience to continue posture like a hypocrite to hood wink the rank and file in the concerned constituency for their votes to support a Party that I myself felt lack of confidence of!………….I wouldn’t want to be labeled an eunuch of UMNO!

    You made your noble stand, akin Dr Toh Kin Voon, the most respectable Gerakan leader after Tun Lim I respected. I respect two of you now of having the right Gerakan principle, the noble characters that you both potray which have put to shy your National leader, the reeling Dr. Koh Tsu Koon.

    I have observed his leadership for more than 20 years, when he was nobody but a mere assistant to Tun Lim. To comment on his leadership and performance, my sense is numbed and exhaustive of any good words I can deliver! I hold speechless as all my comments have been vocaled by those many right Gerakan minds before me! Perhaps, if I really want to force myself for an opinion, I sigh to tell, he is still wet behind the ears!

    I advised some youngish hot blooded members two days ago, when they were extremely furious to see the picture torn by the Zombie like UMNO goon, they were deeply hurt not because of that picture been torn, they were deeply hurt because the two bits of Gerakan dignity had been trampled! I told them, save their energy and fighting spirit for the struggle in another house, if the house they are dwelling now has lost its luster of the past and no longer live-worthy! If Gerakan don’t leave BN, then you people leave! Why waste time whining and moaning over the dead cow?!…………….Sign!

    Gerakan don’t have to join Pakatan Rakyat. I’m really skeptical about this Anwar. He is a protege of Mahatir. Evil mind think alike. Only time will tell.

    Something funny happened!

    I never liked Teresa Kok – she tallked through your hat. I never liked PAS – I dont understand them and perhaps they were demonised by DAP, MCA and Gerakan.

    You know what? After these two weeks, and many months, I an beginning think they are credible choices for ADUN and MPs in the next election. Teresa is willing to fight on principles. PAS is about religion but is not racist, and I think they are fair (who care about 4Ds, pubs, GROs and bikinis).

    Maybe this is a mirage. There are alternatives to UMNO, MCA and Gerakan.

    Now is 30 Sept, Hari Raya eve, but RPK is still in Kamunting alone. Since Gerakan had issued the statement against ISA, what else have Gerakan do? It seems to me that the statement was meant to clean Gerakan’s hand off this issue, like telling the people hey we are against this issue, it has nothing to do with us, so don’t punish us next GE. The same goes for MCA and other component parties, If you all are against ISA, why no efforts to change it? Isn’t Gerakan part of the government? Isn’t this is collective views in BN? Stupid question right. It’s all UMNO. so why Gerakan is still in BN? The press statement against ISA doesn’t and cannot wash Gerakan off the responsibility. What is right cannot be wrong, what is wrong cannot be politically right. Do the right thing, do a Zaid Ibrahim.
