Below are two (2) images of last night’s vigil @ the Sungai Buloh prison from malaysiakini.com
Update @ 8pm: One more night in Sungai Buloh prison and he’s free. Raja Petra Kamaruddin will walk out of prison a “hero” tomorrow, be prepared for more hard-hitting news in the more than ever popular Malaysia-Today. This episode, I am sure, has earned his blog more hits than ever. Thank you, “whoever” you are who had this brilliant design on Raja Petra! If he was not a celebrity before, he is now. I’m looking forward to more punches from him.
Earlier, I said:
Let there be 100,000 more prayers for the blogger who went to jail for Altantuya. Justice for Altantuya means justice for Raja Petra and justice for all women. For the story of his arrest, look here.
How proud I am to see my fellow Malaysians standing brave and courageously outside the Sungai Buloh prison for Raja Petra last night (7 May). It seems there were about 100 or so supporters lighting candles for this “hero”. Seditious or not, we have all decided that the treatment against him was high-handed.
RAJA PETRA is the FIRST blogger to be charged for SEDITION. And why sedition? For advocating that the murderers of Altantuya be sent to hell! to be brought to justice! For “inciting” us all against the corrupt, the murderer(s), against those who are liars, cheats and thieves!
Silence for wanting justice done!!! Silence for seeking the truth!! Silence for being human!!
Stupid law, stupid country, stupid government, stupid leader(s)!
My eyes swell with tears to know that love for truth and courage still exists in a country torn by factional fights between greedy and power seeking politicians. These sickening factional fights can blur the visions of some, but for many, it open a path to seek greater truth.
To the candlelighters, I salute you. To those who attended the vigil, thank you for making me proud to be a Malaysian.
To those who couldn’t be there last night, another is planned for today @ Dataran Merdeka, 8p.m.
To see photos of last night’s vigil, see People’s Parliament.
Perhaps due to the goodwill of all his supporters, Raja Petra will post bail today and has met his wife, Marina Lee Abdullah.
