People's power, this time in RED

Updated, 17/9

 "I treated people with respect and the respect was reciprocated." - journalist Jia Ning on her Facebook after covering the Marah Rally at Padang Merbok yesterday.


Original article: 
16/9/2015: I did not join the Red Shirt rally but I was hoping that their number wouldn't be too small as to be embarrassing. I certainly did not expect it to be huge. Not this huge. 


I told the Malaysian Digest, where these pictures came from, that "This is people's power, too." And yes, I'm sure Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Ali would have agreed.



What does it prove? 
That with enough dose of provocation, the Malays, who formed the majority of the Red Shirts today, will go out and march, too. If Bersih4, which was predominantly Chinese, can draw 50,000 people, the Red can bring as many if not more. If Yellow wants Najib Razak to quit, some other colour can fill up the streets and demand that the Prime Minister stays.
Now where does it get us? Nowhere.



Peaceful as the Merah rally is, you sense that the people are really marah (angry). Most of the protesters today came by chartered buses from out of Kuala Lumpur and as far as Kelantan, Perlis and Johor. Some of them were paid RM50 in allowance (Bersih4 paid RM300 because they raised funds from their richer, urban supporters) but it wasn't the money, one group of people told me. "It is about maruah (integrity). You don't stomp on pictures of our Malay leaders, that's kurang ajar. I am here to show my displeasure with you."

Rightly or wrongly, the DAP was made the target of the crowd's displeasure. And whether you like it or not, Melayu mudah lupa. They will forget the good that you've done because of the really bad that they think you are doing, even if you had been a hero before.

For me, that's the one sad thing about today's Red Shirt rally ...

Congrats for supporting and promoting racism and extremism. Umno leads the way in showing anti-chinese sentiments. It wasn't us who got RM2.6 billion of corruption money in the bank. Congrats again.

Dear Sir,

Most of us never care about BERSHIT 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7...but what pissed most of us were they stomped, spat and urinated on our leaders photos... regardless of WHO! That Melayu tak akan Lupa...at least not us.

rocky, betul ke you ni a top editor?

people power in indonesia, phillipines, elsewhere aim to get rid of oppressive and corrupt leaders. bersih's people power, ditto.

And somehow, you concluded this rally, with original intention of showing strength that will outnumber bersih4. (despite whatever their declared final aim, it was really to mask their ill-thought original intention after realising their follies).

as usual, your sub-par logic and inability to think shines brightly once again.

Oh Latuk, Latuk.

Let me set you right, OK?

This is the statement from Zahid (IGP also gave clear warnings):

http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/bahasa/article/tiada-perarakan-himpunan-baju-merah-di-3-lokasi-panas-kata-zahid

“Menteri dalam negeri itu berkata, pihak polis dan KDN tidak mengizinkan 3 lokasi tersebut iaitu Bukit Bintang, Petaling Street dan Low Yat daripada menjadi lokasi utama perarakan penganjur himpunan Rabu ini.”

"Yang penting kami pihak PDRM dan KDN tidak mengizinkan perarakan dibuat di Jalan Bukit Bintang atau pun di Petaling Street atau melalui Low Yat," kata Zahid yang ditemui wartawan selepas Mesyuarat Tertinggi Barisan Nasional (BN) di Putra World Trade Center malam ini.”

Clear?

Very, very clear.

OK, this is what happened today:

“6.30pm: Petaling Street - Negotiations fail between the police and protest leaders, which include Umno leaders Reezal Merican Reezal Merican and Mohd Razlan Rafii.

Dang Wangi district police chief Zainol Samah tells them the rally is only permitted in Padang Merbok and police have already given some leeway by allowing several Malay NGO leaders in Petaling Street earlier.

"It's enough, disperse," Zainol says.

However, Mohd Razlan refuses to budge. He says Petaling Street is not a forbidden area and protestors are mature enough not to go on a rampage in the street.

He adds that the area is symbolically important to protesters as it is significant to the ethnic Chinese.”

Earlier, the Red Macai Army breached Bukit Bintang by force. Threats were made against the police.

So…

KHAIRY JAMALUDDIN: Is your FT Chief illiterate, or JUST disobedient?

REEZAL: Are you illiterate, or JUST disobedient?

ZAHID & IGP: How lah, my brothers? Any action? I think this is worse than wearing a yellow shirt, right?

IKAN BAKAR BOY: If the Petaling Street mob are all Oppo, why are FT UMNO head and Reezal negotiating with the police to get into the street? AFTER the rally ended, some more?

PINK-LIPPED BUGIS: I think your Rent-A-Mob day went badly wrong and backfired, bro. Padan muka. Good for FDI, for sure.

PS: Does Umno still have a disciplinary committee?

PPS: Oh yes Latuk, you are going to claim that Petaling Street wasn't the fault of the Red Macai Army. Aren't you?

Watch the numerous videos at leisure, bro.

And ask yourself again:

if they are all Oppo, why are Reezal Merican and Mohd Razlan Rafii demanding that total strangers be allowed into Petaling Street?

Spin that for a while, bro.

Have fun, ya. Love you.

Sampai bila lah org Melayu ni nak jadi bodoh, asyik tuduh org lain atass kegagalan diri sendiri? Sebagai bekas pensyarah, pelajar yg selalu gagal, kena tendang keluar, kena tolong naik markah...semua org Melayu jugak. Memang Melayu memalukan nama Islam. Kerja keras tak mahu, suka rileks aje Dan harapkan bantuan org tapi diri sendiri tak nak usaha. Org yg terang terang menipu Dan mengambil duit, diterima Dan diagung sebagai pemimpin. Rasuah ambil tapi tuduh si pemberi. Memang tak de amanah Dan tidak menunjukkan ciri seorang Islam. Malu lah. Asal dapat duit, rm100 pun jadi. INI lah harga diri org Melayu. Kena Tanya...siapa sewa bas berduyun duyun? Siapa bagi makan? Siapa bagi duit? Mana dapat duit? Kalau org tak bagi, tak kan Turum punya org Melayu yg memang murah harga diri. Ni lah yg UMNO baru telah menjadikan org Melayu...harga diri murah! Malu sangat...

Comment from bigdog's reader:

"When reports surfaced about divisions having to send in so and so numbers to participate in “perhimpunan” which i am certain made the majority that attended, how can you conclude “demonstration of force..”? The fact is, that was a rented crowd. It does not reflect the truth. The truth is, the pm no longer enjoys support of the people. The chinese want him out because the economy is stalling, the malays want him out cause he has no balls and is very scandalous (to say the least)."

Cannot argue.

Well put.

One middle-aged Cina woman was able to control a crowd of over 100,000, and Umno cannot prevent 1,000 hired mat rempit from trying to barge into an area that PDRM & KDN already clearly said was OFF-LIMITS???

Didn't Zahid say that stern action would be taken if anyone tried to get into the 3 banned areas?

So much for setting a good example.

So much for maruah.

Can the organizer be truly proud of the number that had participated in the red shirt rally vis-a-vis the Bersih 4 rally ? To recap , the latter was declared illegal and those found wearing yellow t-shirt with the writings Bersih 4 on it were threatened with arrest. Had the Bersih 4 been given the same treatment as that of the red shirt I wonder what size of the crowd would be.

Pl Rocky, don't pass any insinuation to Dr Siti Hasmah.

Another Umno figure whose hypocrisy stinks to the high heavens is Deputy Foreign Minister Reezal Merican Naina Merican.

Reezal, who famously vowed action against Malaysians who participated in Bersih 4 overseas, is playing a whole different tune in the red-shirt matter.

http://www.theantdaily.com/Main/Umno-s-hypocrisy-in-the-red-shirt-rally-stinks-big-time

Whoops, here he is, disregarding both the DPM and PRDM by trying to negotiate passage into Petaling Street:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xg9NbBXRFi0

His very presence there is a BREACH of the terms of the permit.

There's a certain decorum expected from a Deputy Minister.

Reezal doesn't get it.

Plus, he evidently cannot read.

I've been in Padang Merbok for PAS rallies when it's shoulder to shoulder.

There is no way you can pack more than 25,000 people into that space, even if you fill the edges right up.

These are not shoulder to shoulder:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Bn_t8ISroA&list=PL4HkeIKM2z5JllA-xauQEs0TnvHDkJALH&index=9

Hence, I would estimate that less than 20K total turned up in the main location.

With the violence, this is a huge PR mess for Najib.

Was it worth it?

I guess the bus rental & stage rental guys did OK, lah.

Stomping on pictures is just an excuse. They forgot that it's UMNO that taught the Bersih people to stamp on leaders they don't like. UMNO In Penang have been doing it to Lim Guan Eng since 2008. They even sent shit as a cake to him lest we forget. You don't get DAP supporters going to the street to protest their leader have been humiliated. This red rally is just to show how racist they are and to divert the attention of the real issues like 1MDB and the PM's RM26b. To that end every rational Malaysian who think logically will agree unless they are like you Rocky and those who rallied today who may be suffering from an acute inferiority complex thinking that the Chinese are bullying them and not giving them face. Read Tengku Razaleigh please. You Malays control everything from The royalties to the army,police,judiciary and civil servants..How the hack are the Chinese going to take over the country unless of course all the Malays got nuke overnight. Get real man..it's all about good governance and no corruptions ..that's what the Chinese really wants..there is nothing to do with race.You are just spinning and diverting from the real issues like those who rally today.

Malu betul kepada Allah, jika orang Islam berbangsa Melayu mati2 mempertahankan maruah seorang pemimpin yang telah melakukan kejahatan dan kezaliman kepada Negara dan rakyat dia sendiri. Langkah paling simple iaitu berterus terang bagaimana semua isu tentang salah laku moral boleh terjadi pun tak dapat dilaksanakan secara bermaruah. Melayu memang mudah diperdaya, tak kira oleh bangsa kafir juga pemimpin korup dari kalangan Melayu sendiri. Sekarang agenda besar yahudi dan barat untuk melihat perpecahan kaum yang menghancurkan semakin menjadi kenyataan. Pergeseran antara dua kumpulan baju seperti mana terjadi di Thailand sudah pun bertapak di Malaysia... Tidak akan ada siapa pun yang untung kecuali si PM keparat yang makin seronok kerana dapat lari daripada tanggung jawab juga tindakan undang2..

to me its about democracy and perpaduan.
if you keep pushing the PM and current govt to step down this is what you get ...the other party will retaliate.
Bersih is so kurang ajar n impatient sampaikan they cant even wait for next GE...biadap at the highest level.
If Bersih was really honest and have integrity they would have clean their side of the fence first. Also why were they hipocrite when the Reds want to rally?
All these while the Malays have kept quiet....but now look what happen...PAS n UMNO together......somethung which we long to see for a some time...am so proud I can burst...:)

Look beyond the picture and learn from history.

The picture actually showing the majorities that contains the most youth in a single nation with discriminated low incomes and marginalised educational and occupation opportunities that were asked to survived in a more depressing economic future.

They had began to agreed with something for their common interest and the had voiced it loud and clear.

Today the said "Bersatu", soon they will say "Perubahan". This was how the French Revolution started, this was how the Boston Tea Party began and this was how the actions against Malayan Union began.

We had seen it in Germany when they asked for the Berlin Wall to be torn down and in the end Soviet Empire crumbled.

If not careful we will see the "Red Shirt Revolution" will covers the whole Nusantara if "Bersatu" is echoed into Indonesia. Like the Arab Spring not so long time ago.

The corrupt leaders need to keep the citizen of Malaysia divided, this is an age-old "divide and conquer" tactic. With the different ethnic groups up against one another, the corrupt government can divert the attention away from their greed and corrupt practices. Malaysians need to unite and not be misled.

The Malays have been given everything and govern but still cannot make any rational decison and cannot think rationally. UMNO did this to them. Mediocre education, handouts, stuffing race and religion down their throats, saying they are the supreme race and the product is the red shirts mentality and speeches. UMNO made these red shirts what they are today and made the other Malays what they are today. Insecure, poor, frightened and stupid. UMNO failed them miserably and big time.

Tell that to the 2 injured cops, and the many PRDM members who were rudely shoved aside when the Rent-A-Crowd went into areas that were explicitly prohibited by the rally permit.

Anyway, the likely thing is that Mr PM's approval rating has plummeted after this unruly fiasco.

Meanwhile, he was saying this:

"We succeeded in forging an identity as a prosperous nation made up of different cultures and traditions. What other country has united multi-racial communities like Malaysia? We have Malays, Chinese, Indians, Iban, Bidayuh, Melanau, Kadazandusun, Bajau, Murut and others. Our differences have not stopped us from living in harmony," said Najib.

Awwwwwwwwwww.

"Moderation", "harmony", "transparency".

He's truly an inspiration to us all.

Rockybru sir. The crowd was overwhelming indeed.

Maybe to add for the resolutions, government must plan towns where there will be predominantly malay as business owners, shop operators and those who live there.

There are very few towns in Malaysia where more than 90% of shops were own by Malays.

Goverment must help. We have Chinatown and Litte India. There is almost unheard of Malay Street or Malay Town.

I am not an UMNO or PAS member. I am just an ordinary Melayu who has been hurt with all the politicking going on. Now I am very happy as the Melayu has united.

Dear The,

No, this is not the case of Red vs Yellow. I am sure all of them who came to walk the streets, whether they are paid RM50 or RM300, are against corruption and what you call dirty politics. The organisers of the first Bersih in Nov 10, 2007, certainly were (read RPK's latest posting). The latter Bersihs seemed to have deviated somewhat. The last one - Bersih 4 - was all about getting the PM to quit. To quote you, WTF?

Reezal dipanggil hypokrit oleh seorang komenta Datuk. Dia patut baca nukilan seroang Lim yang lebih muda dan tiada kepentingan politic, Sdr Lim Sian See:


Lim Kit Siang has called on PM Najib and his cabinet to apologise to Malaysians for their "shameful abdication of responsibility" in allowing Malaysia Day to be desecrated by the red-shirts rally.
He pointed out that over 1,000 shopkeepers and traders in Petaling Street, representing over 90 percent of the businesses closed their shops due to safety reasons.
He also said the Associated Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Malaysia (ACCCIM) expressed its opposition to the rally due to its racial tone and appealed to the prime minister to take action.
This is the reason why I am opposed to all street rallies including yesterday's rally. I am consistent in this.
On the other hand, Uncle Lim Kit Siang is a hypocrite supreme.
Did he really think that BERSIH 1, 2, 3 and 4 did not force any shops to close for the day due to the rallies?
As for race-based rallies, does Lim Kit Siang remember the HINDRAF rally was a rally held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on 25 November 2007.
The rally started when a crowd estimated to be between 5,000 to 30,000 people gathered outside the Petronas Twin Towers Many shops around Kuala Lumpur including Suria KLCC were closed on that day in fear of trouble from the rally.
What did Lim Kit Siang say then?
He fully supported the HINDRAF rally and said that police must respect the human rights of Malaysians to peaceful assembly
"The police should stop over-reacting, dismantle the roadblocks creating massive jams in KL and Klang Valley and issue police permit for the Hindraf rally." said Kit Siang.
So, he supports race-based protest such as HINDRAF as well as the four BERSIH rallies to take place which similarly disrupts businesses but it is not okay for the Red rally to take place?
What about all those countless rallies and demos that your partner PKR keep on holding around Sogo? Those don't disrupt Sogo and the surrounding businesses?
This essentially confirms Uncle Lim as the biggest and unprincipled hypocrite in Malaysian politics.
If you have any principles, you should protest all street rallies - and not just the street rally that is not on your side.

Brilliant summary of the entire Umno lie being swallowed hook, line & sinker.

"Look at KLCC, OneUtama, Pavilion, etc - you see Malay establishments in those malls? No or very few, right?"

More to the point:

Look at the bank balances of the top 1% of Umno members. (More to the point.)

That pisses all over the paltry earnings of those Malays who run honest businesses and make it by hard work (yes, we do exist.)

Once you realise that Umno has been f***ing the Malays up the ass for four decades, you might get a better grip on reality. (Though you wouldn't spit in your own rice bowl, I guess. The whole cliched "pushed & provoked" rhetoric is all about keeping power, too. Geddit?)

But as you say, journalists don't work for free.

Plenty of bloggers do, though.

To me, Bersih4 was a chinese majority demanding for pm to step down. At the same time it was a political action which also to show the chinese rejection and hatred towards the malays as the son of the soil and especially the muslims political leaders.

The red shirts demo was only showing of the malays to backfire the chinese bersih4. By right the malays should also demand this pm to step down due to his mismanagement and poor leadership. They forgot this PM has shown support to the chinese to fishing the chinese votes or bcos of his liberlism or whatever, and more than what the malays can think of like the pm himself scrapping the nep. The worst is when the current pm has successfully created huge gap between the rich and the poors just from his rhetoric's of high income country (the people or the country?), when many of those poors are the malays.

the pm must be put down as quickly as possible before the country getting rotten and irreparable.

The "malaysian" bar council has come out with a big fat statement at how disappointed they are with our PM and that the get together of the "red shirts" was racist and violent. How blatantly biased and manipulative some groups are!
