Police stopped our ceramah last night; we'll go for it again tonight!

UPDATE: "Choo Keong: Flying Dutchman no more" by Terence Netto at malaysiakini. Read it here.

Versi Bahasa "Choo Keong: 'Flying Dutchman' akhirnya bertemu tempat berlabuh" di sini.

We had expected the BN (Barang Naik) party to resort to their dirty tactic sooner or later during the general election campaign period. Well, it happened last night.

Our ceramah at Taman Sungai Mulia, which began at about 9.30 p.m., was stopped by the police at approximately 11.00 p.m. even though we had applied for a permit. But the police claimed otherwise. The large crowd present was unhappy and angry with the unfair police action but we of Parti Keadilan Rakyat managed to calm everybody down. We declared that we are law abiding though others may not be.

In any event, true to their form, this is one of the dirty tricks used by the Barang Naik party to prevent other political parties from interacting with the rakyat cum voters. They must be afraid of losing ground with their already shaky position and that's why the dastardly desperate act.

Rather than reacting emotionally, we at Parti Keadilan Rakyat call upon all voters to reject BN for such undemocratic action at the ballot box come March 08. Hidup Barisan Rakyat!
