“Rally in Red August 13th..??”

our correspondent from Sabah said “The sms and emails have started to flood the cyberspace in Sabah and the whole world will know soon. August 13th seems to be the chosen date for this Rally in Kuching Sarawak and it will be organised by Movement for Change, Sarawak (MoCS). Khairy Jamaluddin had the T-shirts Patriot in Red and now MOCS also have it in Red as one can see from the statement attached below. 

Bugi says,”Yellow is the colour now which is deemed illegal and so afraid by UMNO/BN. It was once Green(associated with PAS) Orange (Hindraf)  and also Black (Teoh Beng Hock) Next RED shirts will be banned too but by whom..??

WE SHALL SEE WHAT HAPPENS…

MoCS will hold a ‘Rally for democracy and reforms in Sarawak’ on Saturday, August 13 in Kuching.

 The movement’s leaders who met in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday have decided to tone down the event – originally planned as an anti-Taib rally – to ‘A walk for democracy and reforms’.

MoCS will dutifully apply for a police permit for the event. We assure the police that it will be a peaceful rally and we will heed any reasonable advice/demands from them. We will extend our fullest cooperation to all law enforcement agencies in the state capital to ensure no untoward incidents on that day.

 The event will be from 2-5pm. We hope to gather either at Padang Merdeka or Kuching Waterfront and then walk to either Reservoir Park or Museum Grounds where we will hold the rally. By 5pm, everyone should disperse. This is our commitment to the police.

This rally is a compromised version of the original street protests in forcing long-serving Sarawak Chief Minister Abdul Taib Mahmud to step down.

 In our sincere efforts to adopt a non-confrontational approach, we invite all patriotic citizens, even leaders and supporters of the government, to join us in demanding urgent changes and reforms in the governance of Sarawak for the betterment of our beloved home state and people.

 For too long, the state has been trapped in a quagmire of widespread corruption and the politics of fear and intimidation. We wish to educate all Sarawakians that politicians whom they elected to public office should be there to serve them and not vice-versa. The people are the masters, not those who govern.

 When those who govern do wrong by abusing their power, it is the people’s duty and responsibility to vote them out. While we must be patriotic to our country and loyal to our government, it is also patriotism and loyalty to get rid of bad leaders and bad governments.

 MoCS also supports Bersih’s simple message to the government – give us free and fair elections, true democracy and a better future for our children.

 The movement will issue a 10-point declaration at the rally on August 13.

 MoCS stresses that the rally is solely a citizen’s initiative with no political affiliation or involvement. Nonetheless, we welcome all concerned citizens, whether they are apolitical or politicians, to participate in the rally.

 MoCS will not be campaigning for support from any established groups for the rally. We prefer spontaneous and voluntary support from all who care and love their state and nation and who earnestly want to help bring about genuine reforms.

MoCS is also encouraging those who are unable to come to Kuching and those living in other parts of the state and country and even overseas to organise similar walks in solidarity with their fellow citizens and friends in Kuching.

 The Aug 13 event will be a RED rally. All participants are encouraged to come in red – the theme colour of MoCS.

  1. Its going to reach Sarawak shores soon. August 13th one month away. Wonder who will be stopped at immigration check points. Who is on the lists? Francis Siah..?

  2. Taib is going to get red face. Karim is going to get red face. Cos, Francis will be in Kuching as usual. Maybe already there ma. Maybe he will swim across South China Sea. Let us see how stupid PBB is. HuhU

  4. That is why I keep advocating making Nudism legal. When all colours are banned, we can at least paint our bodies. Frankly try the costume option as well. Dress up as yellow LIONS. Lets see if they will ban Lion costumes as well. Meanwhile remember that rallying without discerning if your MP endorses :

    1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
    2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
    3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution.

    will not help more than if you ran for election to give the Rakyat a choice to tick against the racist MP. Fair minded Malays, tell the minority of your intent to end APARTHEID and you will have a percentage block of voters in YOUR favour over BN’s racist candidate.

    How about it? The 3 items are a sign of enlightened Malays in our midst. Give us the alternative to UMNO’s racists and MCA’s/MIC’s/Gerakan’s/PPP’s lapdogs, we can all be First Class citizens henceforth. Daulat Tuanku will mean something by your independent hand.
