Here’s the latest of inspirations from an unlikely source – Tel Aviv, Israel.
I’ve always said I’ve got no issues with Jews or even Israelis… just the damn government.
The “Tent Demonstration” of Tel Aviv shows PEOPLE POWER last Saturday!!
Check out the latest “Revolution by Occupation”
and this is a fucken funny clip to put the shoe into Israeli PM’s mouth.
With Taglines like “no somos mercancía en manos de políticos y banqueros” (“We are people, not commodities in the hands of politicians and bankers” by Democracia Real Ya (DRY), one of the sparks that ignited the revolution…. what about the group #nolesvotes (don’t vote for them), who provided free internet access at their seatings.
With characteristics like being a coalition of different movements…. led by the youths…. being heterogeneous, covering all age ranges, professions and social classes…. utilising blogs, social media, internet and mobile networks… calling for unity against corruption, corrupted politicians… the main M15 rallybeing supported by other cities in Spain and the world…. there are definitely some parallels there.
PEOPLE POWER !!!
25 years ago, The People Power Revolution aka Yellow Revolution changed The Philippines and brought in Cory Aquino as their first woman President.
A lot has happened since.
One can argue the examples above happened under very different circumstances and in vastly different environments.
But you know what?
3 undeniable common facts:
- All 4 leaders are pro-reform, pro-social policies. No, they are NOT fanatics or the kind of “communists” Rais Yatim is painting our PSM.
- The long overdue acknowledgement of Women Power !
- People Power cannot be denied.
Bersih 2.0, GE 13….. Najib / BN / UMNO… your call… i’m sure APCO has done their work =]
Would like to hereby point the attention of the Home Ministry and PDRM’s rank and file to 2 (of many) events in KL that involve
- Mass public crowd (many wearing same event-related t-shirts and outfits),
- Road closures
- PDRM officers very effectively perform traffic control and ensure crowd and participants safety.
1) Standard Chartered Bank’s Annual KL Marathon
2) Le Tour De Langkawi
So… Home Minister and IGP… what’s the problem with this?
Peaceful crowd gathering and walking from 3 predetermined locations, on pre-determined routes to one destination (The Palace).
With good coordination with the Bersih ushers and the usual good traffic control and crowd safety measure by the PDRM officers, this will be smooth and painless… over within 2 hours.
Again… what’s the problem?
Why must arrest people, raid offices, hassle public figures with interrogation 2 weeks before the event??
Why not spend time coordinating the damn thing??
A vid inspired… from the USA to Middle East…
Najib looks to bring in the army… how will Bersih 2.0’s yellow revolution turn out?
