Stop the 9/12 march, Zam tells Bar Council

Hidden Agenda. Information Minister Zainuddin Maidin says he believes that the real agenda behind the Dec 9 walk planned by lawyers is "to condemn the government" and "a front under the guise of human rights". The walk (which the Bar Council holds annually to mark World Human Rights day on Dec 10), therefore, should not be permitted by the police, Zam said here.
Zam was responding to the fact that the Bar Council met the police last Friday to discuss how best to stage the People's Freedom Walk.

Zam speaks like he is PM of the country or is he the new security minister.
He goes round warning newspapers, making false allegations Al Jazeera and now telling the police what to do.
This guy is going mad.

i have always suspected that he will use hindraf as the boogeyman. it serves the purpose. no thanks to hindraf it seems.

to have this bugger as the information minister makes me wonder what other crap will the government throw us next year.

with or without hindraf, this zam fella will find a fall guy. he can shout on top of his voice but we know his capability or the lack of it. wonder how he obtained tokoh award in journalism. goosh, just really beat me.

Sign & Roles of Bar Council
==========================
Bar Council is to speak of Laws, Rules and Regulations or even a fight (in court).
Applying the permit are procedural
and Walk are Constitutional Rights!
If Bar back Hindraf on last Permit
their chess is on the Board
before Police could say NOT!
Also a say to ISA!

(https://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=28452020&postID=6849169270170044487
"Should Bar talk law before Dec walk?"
"ISA vs Constitution" )

Should Bar go without the permit
or no legal action even no permit?
Then Bar loss the sign & Roles
and just anyone to call a Walk!!

Then "How can Bar walk Human Rights?"
Only in the Street but not the Court?

PROVE IN COURT
IF THE SYSTEM WORK!
If not, then Walk!!

Walk before Court is Political
Walk without DB report on V.K.
say what?
Can BAR lead the lawyers?
or the People?
WHAT'S THE LOGIC?

These days i feel very blue because there is so much anger in the air. If the whole point of the exercise is to force the Government's hand to a general election, as in Pakistan then those who are behind it should take a close hard look a their plan... there is a very real danger of things going the wrong way and in a way i feel helpless because i do not know what to say or do. If i were to say stop these marches people say that I am a government stooge or a racist or whatever is the flavour of the day.
the thing is i just want my life to go on as normal, let me fight my battles in peace and stability
things are hard for me now but at least i can still go out and try to make a decent living....

as for the BAR council, they are not the most respectable of organisations and certainly not the standard bearer for civil society...

don't get me wrong, there are many things that are not right with this country and countless more that can be improved but we need to find a more peaceful way of making known our unhappiness, I for one am in support of the candle-lighting campaign and the wear yellow on saturday move because they make known the unhappiness without any chaos.... lets start more of such campaigns and leave out those with political agenda out of it, leave the opposition out of it, leave the bar council out of it let us the people take the lead

Please get check your fact, Are sure Bernama actually recorded Zam saying all these ...

"... only a front under the guise of human rights."

"Any form of street rallies for whatever reasons should not be allowed now as they will only tarnish the nation's image in the eyes of the international community."

"I believe the Bar Council's intention to hold the People's Freedom Walk is to condemn the government under the guise of human rights."

"Solutions cannot be found to human rights issues merely by staging street protests. Moreover, such protests will only worsen the current situation in the country,"

Those are full sentences. And, mind you it is in English.

Are you sure it is Zam?

Yay! The boogey man is back!!!

When BN Ministers cock-up big time, like Chan Kong Choy and Ala ka Zam, they are asked to go on mysterious "medical leave" or to take a break in some foreign land at taxpayers expense for a while until things cools down. Then they come back to give us more crap.

Pat Lu said...

This is really too much, the baseless assumptions and allegations!

Time to Walk The Talk,
time to stop the blame,
time to stop the rot,
time to rebuild the nation.

For our future and our children's future
for We are all ONE.
When One is harmed, all are harmed.
When One is helped, all are healed.

Time to show we care
Time to literally Walk the Talk
Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia!
Time to stand up and be counted.

"How?," you may ask.
"I just small fry (ikan bilis) lah", in frustration you add.
Bravely you declare...
"Never mind the water cannons,
it's monsoon season anyway!"

But on second thoughts, you cry…
“Tear gas I scared; I get beaten up how?"
"I still have parents depending on me!”
“Gotta think of my children!”;
“Gotta put food on the table!”

OK, OK, i hear you.
Here's something you CAN DO...

Wear a yellow T-shirt every Saturday
Your entire family members too
Show your solidarity;
“Saya Anak Malaysia”; “Malaysia Truly Asia”
Demonstrated and expressed by you and me
The simple folks on the street.

In the park, shopping mall or wet market
When you see another in yellow
Don’t be shy; smile, nod your head,
Bersalam, our Malaysian custom
– by placing your palms to your chest
or just one palm, Salam means peace.

Wear a yellow T-shirt every Saturday
Till our nation is back on its feet.

I gotta tell yous I really admire this guy's nerve. After all the al-Jazeera's animated talk, for some fuzzy logic within him, he treats that as finding FAME(V gonna live forever!).

Now he couldn't stop giving statement after statement. Ministers, from where he just came back from holiday,would have been covered in shame and try to dodge reporters but apparently not our cranky ministers!

Gosh, I wish I could be like him. Then, perhaps, I could become a fuzzy logic minister too!

Yes, minister, you are now famous! We know!!!!! Can I PLEA.....SSSSSSSE have your autograph? Send it to Rock so he can redirect it to me!

Zam, please stop of making a fool of yourself. You cannot even pronounce the word "election" properly. I am not not sure whether after Al Jezera had exposed him of saying "ERECTION" instead of Election, I do not think he can be erected.

Bodowi should be proud that he had tow idiotic ministers, Zam and Nazri. Of ocurse, Bodowi is another itdiot, who doesn't what the hellis going on in the country. It is for htis reason that poeple of Khairy and Kalimullah could do as they please at the expense of the nation.

Lets get these bas... out as soon as possible befor this country more "koyak'. It is the duty of every Malaysian to get rid of Bodowi - once Bodowi is out of office Khairy and Kalimullah have to disappear from this country.

A humble opinion of an overseas dwelling Malaysian:

-Who votes for idiots like Zainuddin Maidin in the first place? The opposition in Malaysia also need to get their shit together and give their smart, young professionals a portfolio that shadows each Goverment Ministry so that there will at least be more accountablility and simple quality control, if nothing else. Mr Badawi, as CEO of Malaysia, should manage this guy out before Malaysia's shareholder value is eroded any further (if that's possible).

-Who put him in a position of power? Most of the driving seats for the Malaysian goverment at the mercy of a political party that spends its time bitching, whining, pacifying and ego stroking.

My hope is that people as intelligent as Jeff Ooi, Raja Petra , TV Smith (yes, even if he does have too many pics of GT girls on his site, LOL!) and Marina M. get elected to office one day. To be in government is above all, an honour and a privilege because you're SERVING THE PUBLIC.

The current Info Minister reminds one of a previous Info Minister who took it on himself to be the custodian of public morals and decided to censor the internet.

Even some within the inner circles of the current PM wanted Zam out a year ago for his outdated thinking and illogical logic, but the man at the top somehow believes in him and insisted he stay on.

Well, we can see what a liability he has become.His interview with Al-Jazeera merely reinforces his incompetence.

CK said...

He goes around warning newspapers?

oh yeah.. he did..
What freedom of press are we talking about?

Oh well, our lists of freedoms is getting shorter each day. Each time we are told that that national security is the major issue. if bernama is quoting the minister accurately, he has finally shown "true party loyalty" by showing us that all along, it was potential embarrassment that could have been caused to our govt as the reason not to allow demonstrations. Spoken like a true UMNOputra.

And obviously, some bernama editor has been kind enough to prevent this minister from embarassing himself further after his "brilliant" showing on Al-Jazeera. Nothwithstanding that, someone should help this Zam minister from further embarrassing himself.

Bar Council wants to walk
Zam cries in his cradle
Rocking it along
His mother whacks his backside
Then he keeps silence
Sucking his thumb-drive
Eyes red with his crying

The sleeping beauty in Monsoon Cup
Off he shows his face clapping his hands
The affairs of the country
He says he hears it in his big ears
And the morons will cry…………..
“Correct, Correct, Correct”

Zam gets his act
Showing how good he has become
Crying in his cradle he gets his way
His mother shakes her head and let him play

The police still ponder
Give the lawyers a say?
Or water cannon cocktails on the streets?
Zam eyes glow with playful antics
And the morons will sing
“Correct, Correct, Correct”

The big ears listen
Yawning in his catnap
The mouse feels secure
Time to run for a cause

The march on 9 December
About World Humans Right
The police still sit on it
Staring into the blue sky
Will there be water cannon cocktails?
Will there be spicy teargas?

And Zam telling the police
There is no way you guys would permit
The march on 9 December
He has become the leader of the coalition
The morons drumming on the table
“Correct, Correct, Correct”

Zam has reached a drunken stage of too much political power (ministerial) that he can longer tell the difference between his toe and his thumb.

Like in the accounting system, he can be written off as bad debts. The Bar Council is not interested in a protest neither a rally. It merely wish to heighten public awareness towards their rights and civil responsibility in modern society in the name of what I called, the "bastardization of Malaysian democracy" by the minority few in power.

zam is getting paranoid. next thing you know, a family with 5 children and 10 grandchildren going on a walk at the botanical garden will also be condemned by him as protest against the gomen.

"The minister also chastised an English daily for publishing reports promoting the Bar Council's plan to organise the "People's Freedom Walk"."

In other words:
"I'm the information minister and I HEREBY EXPRESSLY DO NOT ALLOW the English daily FREEDOM OF PRESS"

"He said the daily was not bothered about racial unity in the country."

This People's Freedom Walk will be the PARAGON OF NATIONAL UNITY! (Hmm..this phrase should go on the banner..)

You want to see all races walking hand in hand for a cause they truly share, this is the day!

*stupid @$$! carut! carut! carut!*
