Ops Lallang II Starts, VVe Have to Turn to "V"

People should not be afraid of their goVernments. GoVernments should be afraid of their people.-- quote from V: for Vendetta

Fellow Malaysians, two decades after Ops Lallang in 1987, where 106 politicians and NGO activists were detained under the draconian Internal Security Act, it looks like Chapter 2 has just begun.

I had stopped reading The Star since Nov 10, 2007 (Bersih Rally remember?), only once a while tok a peep at its Online edition to pick up some "useful" crap either for Blogging or Reference. Just now fellow Blogger alerted me about the ISA arrests, Yes, it looks like the first wave has started.

But dear citizens, do not be afraid. Okay, a little-lah.
as VVe must take a lesson from "V":


"People should not be afraid of their goVernments. GoVernments should be afraid of their people."


Remember "V" for VENDETTA.

Lulu's alert from

Five Hindraf leaders detained under ISA (updated)

Police said they have detained all five leaders of the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) under Section 8 (1) of the Internal Security Act.

The five are P. Uthayakumar, M. Manoharan, R. Kenghadharan, V. Ganabatirau and T. Vasanthakumar. They were picked up at various locations in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Seremban.

They will be detained for two years,
Inspector-General Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan said in a statement.

On Wedensday Uthayakumar was released on police bail after having been arrested on Tuesday for a second sedition charge.

He was among three Hindraf leaders who were charged at the Klang Sessions Court on Nov 23 for allegedly making speeches to incite hatred at a gathering in Batang Berjuntai, Selangor, on Nov 16.

Mr PM, Do You Hear The People Sing?

Mr. Prime Minister, first there were 2,500. Then there were 138,000. Now there are 30,000. Tomorrow there will be more. The day after even more.

Mr. PM, Do you hear them?

Mr PM, Do you hear the people sing? Do you hear the song of angry men? Do you hear the music of the people who will not keep silent any more? Do you hear the beating of the people’s hearts? The beating of their hearts for justice is louder than the beating your police can give.

Mr. PM, Do you see them?

Do you see the people’s tears? Do you see the people in a sea of yellow two kilometers long? Do you see the tears on their faces? The tears from their cry for democracy are more than those your tear gas can cause.

Mr. PM, Do you know them?

Do you know the people’s dream? Do you know the dream of the people for justice, equality, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? The power of the people in their thirst for justice, is stronger than the brute force you can ever muster.

Mr PM, Do you hear the people?

DESIDERATA interjects:
"V"oices are ringing throughout this faire lande of ours,
Day "V", PM "V" and Midnight "V"oices,
Mr Prime Minster, Do you hear?
Mr Prime Minister,Do you care?

Desiderata's interjection ends hear:

Mr. Prime Minister, Do you feel them?

Do you feel the people’s force?
Do you feel the strength of the people who will not be marginalized and oppressed any more?
The strength of their resolve for equality is more than the force of your water canons.

Is PM Bedol the devil in disguise?
Can you can see the evil in his eyes?

Ill-informed, unaware and somnambulistic
he runs overseas and in a tic

His SIL & henchmen intimidate, police oppress and
tread on using
brute force, tear gas and chemical water cannon

Instilling fear and far and near
blocking the roads here, here and here

Blaming the rally is just stupidity
No one has such naivety.

Now ISA is on the way
Dump Bedol & the BN I say

Malaysia is getting poorer everyday
Under BN this will forever be the way
