This is a message from 1BLACK Malaysia:
A special memorial will be held tomorrow night at KLSCAH tomorrow night, the 14th day of Beng Hock’s death.
But this is not one for him alone, but for all others who perished in custody – police lock-up, prison, detention camp.
We do not have the figure since the inception of Malaya or Malaysia.
From 2003 to date, the number is 1,804 excluding Beng Hock.
That is 23 deaths every month, or 3 deaths every four days.
One life lost is too much. Is it not? When Beng Hock died, many of us would like him to be the last.
He did not make it. R.Gunasegaran, 31, died in custody in Sentul a few hours after Beng Hock’s death.
Can we still feel indifferent?
Come tomorrow night to KLSCAH, in black. (Please avoid bright colour even if you dont have anything black.)
Light a candle for the dead who should be living.
There will be no political speech.
There will be no religious ceremony.
There will be only tribute to the dead and reflections of the living.
