Yb Dominique Ng (PKR Assemblyman for Padungan) sent “SMS” messages to Kuchingnites to come out and protest against Oil Prices at Jalan Satok near the Kentucky Fried Chicken.Please get as many people as possible to attend. It says BN Gov’t must go!! Only A Pakatan Rakyat gov’t can save us now!!!
Did it work….? Obviously it did, as close to 300 PKR members staged a peaceful demonstration along Jalan Satok under the watchful eyes of police personnel. There was however a lot of onlookers/sympathisers which was close to 500 watching from nearby shops and buildings.
Malaysiakini reported that Kuching OCPD ACP Wong Wai Loong allowed the protesters, led by Sarawak PKR chairperson Dominique Ng, that action would be taken if the protesters displayed any banners or placards.
Deputy State Chairman Baharuddin told Malaysiakini that more demonstrations were being planned at different locations starting from tomorrow. We can see that the silent majority are with us,” he said, pointing to the growing number of sympathising onlookers.
The “Age of Technology” has finally made its presence felt and YB Dominique has made full use of it.
