Launch of the ‘Kuburkan BN’ civil society initiative in Hulu Selangor

Posted on April 21, 2010


Yesterday morning, about 15 civil society volunteers descended on Kuala Kubu Baru town to help with a door-to-door campaign to share with voters our thoughts on why, come the 13th GE, we must do everything within our means to rid this nation of the scourge that has plagued us for the last 40 years : BN.

Our message to the voters : let Hulu Selangor be the start of the second tsunami culminating in the 13th GE.

Armed with some printed material and CDs entitled “DNBN – Kuburkan BN” and in groups of 3-5, they hit the streets.

Within half an hour, one group was intercepted by the special branch.

I went over.

The police ifficer was viewing the CD.

He asserted that it violated section 4A of the Election Offences Act, 1958.

I said that I did not share his view.

You can view the CD, in two parts, below, and make up your own mind on this question.

To make a long story short, three were arrested for distributing the CD and released later after having had their statements taken. They are expected to appear at the IPD, Kuala Kubu Baru on 3rd May at which time they will be told if they will be charged for any offence. You can read more about this HERE.

The CD is a civil society effort to better inform a large segment of the population who, courtesy of a dishonest mainstream media, are blissfully kept in the dark about the atrocities that have been perpetrated by the leaders of BN generally and, more particularly, UMNO, and their cronies, over the years.

Is there some law on our statute books that makes informing the rakyat the truth about what is happening to their own country an offence?

If so, I am reminded and inspired by the words of wisdom of an old sage : If the law is bad, break it.
