NGO gifts brooms to LGE in protest against Bersih

Filed under: Politics — Hornbill Unleashed @ 9:01 PM

guang-eng-broom-1Upset over the appearance of Bersih’s convoy in Penang, a non-governmental organisation handed over a memorandum to the state government and a couple of brooms to the chief minister on Thursday.

Persatuan Kebajikan Insan Mulia President Aminah Abdullah said the “special gifts”, in the form of a “penyapu lidi”(broom made of palm fronds) and a regular broom, for Lim Guan Eng was a sign for him to “clean himself up.”

Aminah, who is former Penang PKR Wanita chief, handed the memorandum, together with the gifts wrapped in mahjong paper, to an officer from the chief minister’s office.

“We are concerned about the Bersih rally and its related events being held in Penang. It is really not nice to see yellow here and there. It gives an impression of chaos.

“It interrupts businesses, especially smallholders who are already having a hard time making a living.

“So, we hereby urge the chief minister to not hold any Bersih events in Penang. We suggest that he cleans himself from corruption and other court charges first,” she told reporters at the lobby of Komtar here.

The group gathered about 11am and Aminah, with 30 others, voiced out their displeasure against Lim and Bersih using loudhailers. They dispersed 30 minutes later without incident.

Recently, a Bersih convoy passed Kedah and Penang, in a run-up to the mega gathering in Kuala Lumpur on Nov 19.

The five demands of Bersih 5 are clean elections, clean governance, strengthening of parliamentary democracy, right to dissent and empowering Sabah and Sarawak.

  2. Highly corrupted UMNO Baru Malay Muslims will continue to act like they are God ‘s gift to the nation and they are not corrupted and milking the nation through the corrupted systems under UMNO Baru controlled BN government.

    • When a group of Malaysians make known their purpose and intention to march on the streets peacefully without issuing any threats or counter threats to any person, group or the authority they will march peacefully. Those people regardless of their race and religion who had openly threatened to cause chaos for whatever reasons will resort to provocation, intimidation and causing troubles. That was the difference between the yellow shirts of Bersih and the red shirts gangsters of Umno Baru. Malaysians do not need any person or group to express their fear of chaos if they did not make police reports against any individual or group of individuals who had openly challenged the authority to arrest them should they provoke, intimidate or harm our fellow Malaysians who chose to march peacefully to express their disgust on the affairs of our country and the unending corruption involving government leaders.

    • Umno Baru Malay Muslims are sickening. They chose to support corrupted leaders and be fed with haram money. They are the worst hypocrites and they have no moral credibility and integrity to speak for the ordinary, hard working, peace loving and God fearing Muslims in this country.

  3. Just a case of another tukang sapu trying her luck at getting noticed. But at least she recognized the role of Bersih!
