Bersih is PR.
Only a completely naieve novice will take the position and say that Pakatan Rakyat is not behind the 9th July 2011 Bersih Rally.
Ambiga on her own can organize a Bersih Rally for Free and Fair elections but not more than 10 people would attend.
PAS Deputy President last week Mat Sabu pledged 100,000 PAS supporters attendance.
Anwar Ibrahim last weekend was reported to have said that he will tell (order) Ambiga to call off the Bersih Rally if UMNO/BN agreed to hold free and fair elections.
Lim Kit Siang two weeks ago cautioned Tahrir like situation in Malaysia.
So P.R not behind Bersih?
UMNO = Kotor
It is the neo colonialist UMNO’s racist and religious supremacist policies and the omission by PKR, DAP and PAS that has led to the current pressing Indian problems for even basic necessities. Of the Indian poor and old even having to beg UMNO for RM 90 per month which is for below the poverty level of RM 786 per month welfare help. Which is the tip of the iceberg of Indian poverty, not because they are not prepared to work hard, but arising out of being denied equality equal opportunities and segregated and excluded from the national mainstream development of the bi racial One Malay-sia.
At all costs we are bent on politically ending UMNOs’ 54 long years of old rule of Putrajaya.
HRP= Hindraf 18 Point Demands
But we do not trust Pakatan Rakyat with a blank cheque to Putrajaya vis a vis the Indian poor.
The tip of the iceberg and the latest reasoning is in the years 2009 and 2010 out of 1,571 Yayasan Selangor scholarships and despite being in the Putrajaya of Selangor only 3 scholarships were granted to the Indian poor.
This speaks volumes of the intended continued segregation of the Indian poor when PR gets to Putrajaya. For this and other like reasons HRP would like to be the check and balance on PR at Putrajaya in furthering the cause of the Indian poor which is contained in the Hindraf 18 Point Demands via HRPs’ Project 15/38. Or not at all!
PR endorse Hindrafs’ 18 Point Demand and we will march with Bersih.
We therefore are not going to get “excited” by this Bersih Rally though 99% of the 1.3 million respondent in The Star online poll voted for the Bersih Rally. Ab initio, we were never the populist or the 60% Malay muslim majority or 90% Malay muslim, natives and Chinese political gallery motivated movement.
Pakatan Rakyat like UMNO/BN takes full advantage of the Indian poor not having any single Parliament or DUN Indian majority seats Indian majority areas like Klang, Kuala Selangor, Teluk Intan, Ipoh Barat, Batu Kawan, Merbok, Teluk Kemang, Cameron Highlands, etc have been shrewdly jerrymandered by the racist UMNO so that the Indian poor would have zero political power and would at all times have to be at the mercy of the tuans and towkays.
We are not prepared to become Pakatan Rakyat’s blind followers let alone to serve as their Indian mandores and giving credence to the supremacy of the PKR, DAP and PAS tuans and towkays and the Indians poor remaining their serfs and the degenerate in bi-racial One malay-sia. And for PR to do an UMNO/BN on the Indian poor for another 54 long years.
Be that it may, Hindraf and HRP are prepared to be in the front rows of the Bersih Rally as we did in the 25th November Hindraf Rally provided PR gives a written endorsement of Hindrafs’ 18 Point Demands and HRP’s Project 15/38.
Rights not Mercy.
