Hindraf the idiot

When the police arrests those that clearly state that they want to
assemble peacefully,
while not arresting the people who wants to stop, using force if
necessary, any attempt to assemble peacefully:
Who threaten the security of the nation?
Those that want to exercise their rights under the constitution to
assemble freely or
those that threaten violence to stop those that want to assemble
Even all the ISA and EO acts can only be APPLIED WHEN THE SECURITY OF
THE NATION IS threatened.
Why are they not applied to those who threaten security? Those who
vows violence against peaceful protesters, i.e. PERKASA, UMNO AND
The answer is very clear for honest people. It is surprising to me for
lawyers not to see clearly the implications of all these arrests.
The police break all rules, including ISA and EO, in order to suspend
the constitution. What hope is there for a democracy where the police
and EC blatantly breaks all laws, in clear daylight, unashamedly at

The movement takes the government and Umno to task for 'violating' the
rights of the citizens as enshrined in the Federal Constitution.
GEORGE TOWN: Hindraf Makkal Sakti has condemned the re-arrest of six
Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) members under the Emergency Ordinance
and the police crackdown on Bersih 2.0 ahead of its July 9 rally.
Hindraf demanded that the authorities release all the detainees
The movement's adviser N Ganesan said Umno's gloves were coming off
and the federal government was again showing its real self.
Citing the police clampdown on Hindraf after the Nov 25 rally in 2007,
he said Umno, with the police's help, was repeating it on Bersih and
The PSM six, including Sungai Siput MP Dr D Michael Jeyakumar, were re-
arrested Saturday under Section 3(1) of the EO on suspicion of causing
civil unrest by any means.
They were among 30 PSM leaders and members arrested by the police at
the Sungai Dua toll plaza along the North-South Expressway on June 25.
They were originally remanded for a week to be investigated under
Section 122 of the Penal Code for allegedly waging war against the
The six were released from the charge on Saturday, only to be re-
arrested immediately under the EO, which is normally used to detain
suspected hardcore criminals for 60 days without trial.
This was the first time the draconian law had been used against
political party members, especially against a sitting MP.
'Umno is not above the law'
"July 2, 2011 is just another black day like Dec 13, 2007 when Hindraf
lawyers were detained under the draconian Internal Security Act," said
He slammed the Umno government for contravening the citizens' rights
guaranteed in the Federal Constitution and the Universal Declarations
of Human Rights.
He pointed out that the Federal Constitution unequivocally states that
every citizen had the right to freedom of speech and expression; all
citizens had the right to assemble peaceably and without arms; and all
citizens had the right to form associations.
"However, Umno has mocked these rights granted and guaranteed by the
Constitution," stressed the Hindraf leader.
He said Malaysia was increasingly being run against the will of the
Ganesan alleged that Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak, Home Minister
Hishammuddin Hussein and Inspector-General of Police Ismail Omar acted
in complicity in this and many other blatant violations of the Federal
Constitution against the wishes of the people.
"Brute force is being applied to simply promote and protect the
interests of Umno," he said, adding that more repressive action would
be employed in the coming days.
Ganesan reminded the Umno government that it was not above the law,
and should always abide by all the provisions in the Federal
"If Umno does not take heed of this call, Umno bears responsibility
for making Malaysia a lawless nation," he said.
