Photos of Anti-ISA candlelight vigil & Malaysiakini news of Law Minister threatens to quit over ISA issue

First, Malaysiakini has some promising news like “De facto law minister Zaid Ibrahim threatens to resign if the government continues to use the Internal Security Act against political dissidents.” (malaysiakini) and then Human Resources Minister Dr S Subramaniam questions the use of ISA plus Info Minister Sharbery Cheek asked the Police to provide explanation on the detention of Tan Hoon Cheng.
Now, here are some photos of the candlelight vigil held at Dewan Sri Pinang, Penang. The vigil started at 9 pm and last for about 45 minutes. I am really, really tired, having gone out since 10 am this morning. My last post was posted from my mobile phone as I had been busy. So, just some photos, lazy to write.
Tan Hoon Cheng, the Sin Chew reporter was there. She said she was able to remain strong because of the support of the people. She is a petite, pretty lass and speaks well. It is hard to believe that she was detained under ISA.
Penang Deputy CM, Prof. Ramasamy spoke as well and I didn’t know it was him. 😛
Aliran. Anil Netto.
So, how many people were there? Don’t ask me because I am bad with estimation. Many of the DAP MPs and ADun were there including Liew Chin Tong, Chow Kon Yeow, Chong Eng, Khor Teng Hai and etc.
This is the first time I attended a candlelight vigil. So many familiar faces from my church were there. There were no FRU to be seen and in fact, I don’t even see any policemen.
You should go to the Pakatan anti-ISA rally tomorrow if you have a chance. It is fun. 😛
Details can be found on Malaysiakini.
Oh ya, here’s the familiar face. This is taken after the organiser, Suaram told us the vigil is over and asked us to disperse peacefully. My little boy didn’t join me earlier when I was squeezing through the crowds to take photos. Now, he can say ‘Mansuh ISA’. Never mind that he doesn’t know what it is.
