Attention Barisan Rakyat Bloggers and Special Bunch teams… the time has come again to mobilise…. get off your asses =]
Since RPK’s self imposed exile from Selangor (read about it here, if you have just returned from outer space)… we will probably miss the great man at our regular Sunday PJ Vigils and Anak Bangsa Malaysia meetings for awhile.
The good news is that the 3 by-elections (Bukit Selambau in Kedah, Bukit Gantang in Perak, Batang AI in Sarawak) are outside Selangor =]
From RPK & Co’s recent road trips to Bukit Gantang and Bukit Selembau areas, and visits to Kuching/Batang Ai by other BR comrades.. RPK’s thoughts:
- If possible, dedicated sections on the blogs for each by elections, for ease of updating & reading.
- Batang Ai should be taken care of by our newly aquainted comrades – the Sarawak Bloggers (check out Dayak Nation, DayakNation.tv, The Borken Shield, Letters from Batang Ai) over in Sarawak & their friends on the ground (some BR guys are also going over to help out)…. supported online by all our blogs to bring them coverage & traffic…. start picking up & linking to their postings.
- Bukit Gantang is a PAS seat & with Nizar as candidate, looks like a likely Pakatan Rakyat/PAS win. HOWEVER, judging from the current & recent events surrounding the Perak constitutional crisis, and pre-elections mood on the ground… an intense & ugly battle is anticipated…… Plenty of work to be done… no complacency allowed. BR efforts will be concentrated here, based out of Taiping (with love, no less)
- Bukit Selembau looks to be messy…. with multiple independent candidates thrown in to complicate matters. BR team shall support and cover it based out of Taiping as well. We shall be working with PAS and Makkal Sakthi comrades.
The captain has spoken …. lets get organised….
May the FORCE be with all of us & all in Batang Ai, Bukit Gantang & Bukit Selembau.
Lets continue to return Malaysia back to the Rakyat!! PEOPLE POWER!!!
