Yes, I have not been posting for almost 1 month now, due to a combination of factors. Have been rather busy with my many social duties, ranging from organising medical meetings, medical camps, fund raising, teaching and the latest is organising a medical team for the coming Bersih 4.0. I am told that the Bersih organisers are trying to get 400,000 to walk in the streets of KL on the 29th August and also to sleep over at Dataran Merdeka on 29th night.
Yes, we are local and global too.
We expect that with hundreds of thousands of Malaysians from all walks of life in the streets walking, there may be some who may need medical attention, being Police officers with faints, or citizens with asthmatic attacks. My task is to help raise a medical team, so that those who have medical needs on that day, can receive medical attention. We have already readied ambulances on standby, and AEDs ( just in case ), of course together with our first aid kits, and also our survival gears against tear gas and water cannon. This time, I have also advised members to bring along a sleeping bag, should they wish to sleep over at Dataran Merdeka.
Of course, I feel that this Bersih 4.0 rally is justifiable, because, our minority, elected ( on 47% popular vote ) government no longer wish to listen to the people when we talk to them.
What then do you do, when the people who represent you, hide from you, give vague answers to simple questions, ban, sack, detain, and transfer government officers whom they do not like for speaking up. This is a gross abuse of power. You represent us ( so you say ), take our tax money, impose GST on us, and give us hardship, then do not respond to us in a reasonable manner, when we ask you for answers. This is unreasonable.
So we have no choice but to walk our talk. We want answers. The economy is failing. Soon, our money will be almost like "banana notes" during the Japanese occupation.
Please come out on the 29th August in large numbers. I hope that God will give us good weather and protect us from harm. It starts at 2 pm. There are 5 staging points for us to assemble. I expect that my stations will be Pasar Seni and Dataran Maybank.
Can you imagine Kuala Lumpur in a sea of yellow? Please come and make Kuala Lumpur a sea of yellow on 29th August. Let the 47% PM get a clear message that the rakyat wish to be heard, and we are important. In a democracy, the state may think that they have the power, but the real power is with the people. Afterall, it is a government, for the people, of the people and by the people, is it not.
PLEASE COME ONE COME ALL. COME AND BE HEARD. MAKE KUALA LUMPUR A SEA OF YELLOW ON 29th August.
