DAP initiates ‘A Long Run to Freedom’
Had my normal daily dosage of MalaysiaKini this evening before i head of to bed early to prepare for the long work tonight which starts at midnight. (Company’s sponsoring the Penang International Marathon’ which i need to go see Setup at midnight tonight). Anyway, read about a different kind of marathon which initiated today, flagged of at Pandamaran Klang and set to complete its 350KM course at ISA dentention camp in Kamunting.
Thats right, hundreds of ANTI ISA supporters has initiated with DAP a 350KM run in support of abolishing the ISA. Now there is a real cause for running eh? 🙂 The latest controversy of the Riot Police Stomping into the 1st Year BERSIH rally anniversary when the crowd was singing the National Anthem raised quite a lot of eyebrows. I happen to think that both parties were in the wrong. What was the cause of gathering? to support a year of BERSIH when the authorities had already said no? Haris would probably say if not now then when? well why not partner with DAP and do this run together? Isn’t this run more significant? i have to say. This run will really prove to Malaysians that there are people out there who care for the ‘rakyat’ and is going the extra mile to do something about it.
Since people like me do not have the fitness to RUN and do not have the time to join in the fun, i lend my hand by typing out this words in my blog. Even if 10 people read my blog and not more, i am still reaching out to 10 people and not ZERO. 🙂 If you have a blog and do think alike me that the ISA is BULLISH and NOT RIGHT, then why not spend a couple of minutes to write about this run. Let your friends know that there is HOPE!!! a hope for an era where the people will decide the course of the nation and not the leaders who are suppose to be working under OUR PAY! If not for now, at least for the future of our next kin.
To those whose families are detained under ISA with no sense, my prayers are with you. At least i can now say that I’m a RAKYAT who cares. Born Malaysian, Die Malaysian!!
