Just got back home from the mass gathering to abolish ISA, solidarity call for the recent victims arrested under the ISA, detention without trial.
Great speeches from famous political fighters like Uncle Kit and Penang CM YB Lim Guan Eng. This is the 2nd major political gathering that I participated and the numbers definitely bigger than the previous PROTES 2008 that I attended. Met some prominent political bloggers there as well.
Final speech was from our Prime Minister in waiting, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim. Publicly, DSAI assured that he has the numbers to form a federal government and in fact today Pakatan Rakyat sent a letter to Dollah Badawi to arrange a meet up. A peaceful transition of power is from BN to Pakatan is one of the agenda in the letter co-signed by DSAI (PKR), Uncle Kit (DAP) & Hadi Awang (PAS). And Malaysia for once see hope when an UMNO minister, Datuk Zaid Ibrahim tendered his resignation today to Dollah. Anwar adviced the public to be patient and expect a surprise from the UMNO hero himself, Datuk Zaid.
Anwar again stressed that if Pakatan comes to power tomorrow, immediate decrease in petrol price and immediate release for all ISA detainees. Insyallah, god-willing, we will be bless in this holy Ramadhan month.
I end this post with few pictures taken at the gathering. Better catch some sleep as I am heading for Sabah later. Good night!
