Violent death throes of a rotten regime...

I salute Syed Ibrahim Syed Noh (president of Gerakan Mansuh ISA) for his courage, perseverance and impeccable integrity. Thank you, sir, for keeping your faith in the possibility of reform - and for continuing to demand justice on behalf of all those without a voice.

I salute each and every one of you who assembled on 1 August 2010 with candles in Petaling Jaya, Ipoh and Penang to remind the rest of us that all is hardly well in any country that clings ferociously to cruel, unjust laws to subjugate the spirit of freedom. Many of you were roughly mishandled by red-helmeted robots who serve the corrupt and criminal UMNO/BN agenda rather than democracy and the public good.

And then there were many others - in London and in Sydney - who gathered in support of the Abolish-ISA Movement in Malaysia.

Cruelty, tyranny and gross injustice - Dr Mahathir's evil legacy - will inevitably bring down Jibby the Hutt's rotten regime. Patience and fortitude, folks!

Down with the ISA!
In a true democracy, every rakyat has the right to protest against any perceived injustice.
In Australia, the police will ensure that you get to bring your message across as they protect democracy, not despots.

Hi Antares, didnt know you were in hospital (your feb blog somewhere). Good writing. Couldn't agree with you more about Malaysia's early 19th century medicinal practices in use today. Taking the Hypocratic oath to new extremes. See you ended up being tied to your bed. Bet when you needed a pee they didnt think of letting you go. Glad you are still with us.

Good to see you up and back again, Antares!

I think the brutal way the BN government handles peaceful protestors will spur others to stand up and take action as well.

I love this photo of the cop with the cudgel behind his back. It captures how eagerly he was itching to use it.
