Perakians Protest at the Palace Gates

The people of Perak today said a resounding NO! to Najib's evil scheme to steal the state of Perak from right under their feet, with the connivance of Sultan Azlan Shah. Between 3,000-6,000 Perakians showed up to express their anger and disappointment at the uncouth way popular Mentri Besar Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin was dismissed and locked out of his office.

A totally inauspicious installation ceremony, boycotted by all the Pakatan Rakyat state assembly members.

As usual, the Umno/BN regime's only response was to teargas the protesters, even though they were assembled in the compound of the Ubudiah Mosque. Nine people were arrested in the melee that erupted within view of the palace gates. Earlier, official limos arriving for the installation of BN's hand-picked Mentri Besar, Zambry Abdul Kadir, were greeted with loud jeers and thumbs-down gestures. A limo bearing the Perak royal insignia was reportedly pelted with stones. Some protesters attempted to block the official motorcade by lying across the road but were forcibly removed by the police.

Read Hannah Yeoh's view of the Perak coup d'etat on 5 February 2009.

From, 6 Feb 2009

Like father, like son. Najib's father staged a coup d'etat against a popular prime minister in 1969. It cost several hundred lives but the new Umno regime founded on blood became a "Second Reich" and lasted till 8 March 2008 when it would have been decimated at the polls were it not for postal and East Malaysian votes. It appears now that Najib, son of Razak, is set on initiating a "Third Reich" to resurrect a moribund Umno and protect himself against potential criminal charges ranging from massive corruption to complicity in cold-blooded murder.

By this one act HRH has unwittingly consigned M'sia to the realms of Banana Republics.

I have always had my doubts about our Royalty and where exactly their loyalties lie. (how on earth did they approve the appointment of the new CJ?)I believe this one has shown his true colours by choosing form over substance in consenting to a coup d'ete.

As for UMNO/BN, they may have one this battle but the anger and fury in Perak is such that they will lose more than Perak come the next round!!

Najib is just a coward! Yeah,like father like son. His father might be able to coup without repercussion but Najib will FALL for sure. I'll fly back to vote this time! Kick his ass from Perak!

I am from Perak and thought highly on my Sultan as compared to all other rajas.

He can never win back my respect even if he dissolves the state assembly now. He has shown his true colours and I am knocking my head against the wall for having had high hopes on him for over 20 years.

The revolution to kick out the monarchy in Malaysia is being started by this very same wise-looking but hopeless raja.

I am as usual grossly disappointed with many of your readers' ( same same RPK/Zorro/LKS)righteous than thou ) know all smart comments , which might just sum up the mentality of most of your armchair commentators siting in their plush wired homes/Boss offices/Starbucks in pristine satisfied comfort.

All these useless helpless educated Hprites do is to pass intelligent hot air then laugh/gossip about it aka "we live in interesting times" blah blah blah like a Sunday midnight thriller/Taiwanese soap opera to brighten/divert their mundane pragmatic existence..

Can they please offer more original groundbreaking thoughts & positive proactive suggestions instead of behaving in the main like , overplayed parrots ? Are they able to offer anything to change that or to do something tangible & productive? Afterall this is not a movie ok its real and happening at our doorstep !

For a start I would like to know the real reasons why the sultan acted as he did and F*5k those legal jargons ! Does anybody know or does anybody care ?

Over to you Mr redoubtable Magick River !

positive & productive Perakian

Bro, What the Sultan and his families eat, wear,the palace and their allowances are all being paid by us the Rakyat who paid our taxes. Even the condom used by Raja Nasrin also paid by Rakyat.

This time father and son let down the Perakians.

As for Najib Mongolia, father betray Tunku Abdul Rahman, he betray Pak Lah, father die in office of leukemia, he will die of AIDS.

The only way the people are going to get what they want is through violence. I truly do not condone violence and hope for it not to happen but that is really the only way.

In a totalitarian state disguised as a democratic nation with no freedom of the press, no freedom of speech, no right to fair trial and most importantly no people with integrity, that is the only way forward.

I have long since told people that political change in this country is dead. It always has been since 1969, our leaders have further destroyed the minds of your youths by relinquishing politics from their lives and making them dumb (University Colleges Act 1971).

It's about time we gave the leaders of this country what they gave to us. Civil Disobedience and Non-Resistance are brilliant ideas which I have always believed in ever since I read Thoreau and Gandhi but it CAN and WILL get you killed.

If the Thais, French, Russians and Zapatistas can do it. So can we!

Javanese (Malay) values are not compatible with Islamic values. The informed and educated know this well. So does PAS, though they will not admit it openly.

Maybe Indonesia should invade the fake country called Malaysia, throw out the government and corrupted system including the monarchy, and call it the straits settlements of various races and religions from all over the world, especially Asia.

We would be more developed, diverse, strong and cosmo compared to Australia if the British had done a HK on us.

The current system, rules, constitution and rukun negara were just put in place by UMNO to prolong their (fake and manipulative concept of) Malay Elite dominance, which is in actuality only for UMNOputra dominance; and to allow their divide and conquer tactics and methods to fester and disunite.

Ketuanan UMNO boleh! People deserve the government they get! Time for the people to rise and rebel!

Arrgh Antares, bloody hell! I'm in South Africa and suddenly I see all this shit happening back home in Perak.

But I'm grimly satisfied to see the depth and breadth of the public's angry backlash against the shenanigans in Perak. How stupid of Hee Yit Fong; How foolish of the Sultan, and how stupid of UMNO and BN to think that this would go unchallenged by the people.

Even better that the PDRM-FRU got involved - every time those bumbling uniformed thugs move in, they only succeed in further inflaming the public's anger with their heavy-handed and thuggish tactics. Let them come.

On the upside, I'm heartened to see how all the communities have rallied around the effective, popular and rightful MB Nizar Jamaludin. The Najib regime should have a renewed idea of the people's fury now. Every by-election so far has been a referendum on his 'leadership'.

I'm hoping now that the situation becomes so untenable in Perak that there will be no option but to dissolve the State Assembly and have a fresh state election.

Najib may want to leave the country before that happens, and his departure will not come too soon.

R-A-H-M-A-N(Nizar !?) ...why NOT !!

GhostLine - Always good to hear from you, bro - even when it's just a pained groan! South Africa sounds like a funky place to be right now :-)

Anon @ 10:57PM - I see you've been leaving this meme in almost every blog! FYI the R-A-H-M-A-N prophecy applies only to UMNO (not the whole country). This means it will soon be fulfilled when Najib takes over as UMNO President, completing the prophecy & presiding over its lingering death through internal rot. I'd like to see Anwar or Wan Azizah installed as PM - because that's the only way to rid the country of the incurable Dr M & give us all a chance to reset our agendas & begin afresh on aclean slate. Frankly, nobody gives a fuck what initials our 6th PM happens to carry. As far as I'm concerned, UMNO's RAHMAN prophecy has been fulfilled, now the party has outlived its purpose & will soon die.
