Malaysians from all walks of life have donated some RM65,000 to a fund raised 10 days ago to help send a blogger to Parliament.
Jeff Ooi, who has been running Screenshots for over 5 years, is contesting the Jelutong parliamentary seat in Penang on a DAP ticket.
He set up the on-line fund 10 days ago.
"People who believe that bloggers are not relevant to real life and real people are .. dinosaurs," he told a press conference after launching his first book, i-Witness.
I am here with bloggers Zorro Unmasked (Bernard Khoo) and Tony Yew. We passed him some money raised last night by bloggers.
