Dear Kit Siang,

Just read the report in Malaysiakini about your call for a moratorium on all repressive laws. I knew we could count on you to stand with us in urging the PH government to honour their pre-election promise to free this nation of the slew of draconian laws which, sadly, continue to be enforced by PDRM.

I wrote publicly to Anwar in this blog on 26th September, 2018. Amongst other things, this is what I said. “Please understand that post 9th May, 2018, we, the rakyat, are no longer the people so long suppressed by BN. We fully understand and have experienced the sheer power in our hands when we come […]

It was in relation to a letter you had written from prison voicing your concerns about the “Dr M-led Save Malaysia and People’s Declaration initiative”. Then, this is what I had said of your letter : “Last night, I joined Chegubard and Arul of PSM in […]

The evening that Zeus smiled on SABM’s Social Inclusion Agenda

Those of you who have been to Rumah Anak Bangsa Malaysia previously would be all too familiar with the graffiti that adorned the inside of one of the perimeter walls, reflecting the thoughts and aspirations of those who have shared in the vision and mission of Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia.

Given our history, should we, again, leave uplifting the lives of our poorest to the politicians?

I met up with my sifu last Tuesday. Asked him to help me out with a question. On hindsight, I should have tossed 2 questions at him. My question : how much have the BN governments allocated towards poverty eradication efforts? The question I ought to have asked but did not : how much was […]
