Am I a refugee
In my own country?
Hounded, searched, trailed
and probed?
Questioned, jailed
punished, tortured
Spat upon, sneered at
Forced to strip,
left naked,
Hungry and thirsty?

Tell me:
What is my crime?
Spell it out!
Charge me in court!
Don’t hide me here
In your smelly dungeons
Then call me cowards!

Should I flee
like a refugee?
From my own country?
Should I leave behind this
Godforsaken land?
The grass is greener
The sun shines brighter
On the other side.

My heart holds me back
My future needs me
The cries of my people
say “don’t go”.

I’m not a refugee
In my own country
I am the sons
and daughters of the soil
The sands and hills
On which my parents toiled
for generations
with their bare bloody hands.

Note: This message below is from Dr. D. Jeyakumar who is currently with 5 others under Emergency Ordinance detention. And this poem is for all of us who are left behind to fight the monsters in this godforsaken land. I pray the detainees will be free soon. There is no logic in detaining them 😦

“I would like to thank everyone who is supporting us by the hours, prayers, urgent appeals etc.The 6 of us have not broken any laws and our crime is that we are socialists and we are attempting to put the issues affecting the poorer 60 per cent of Malaysians in the national agenda. eg. Hospital privatisation, minimum wage and decent wages.

Our detention is totally unwarranted and we are working within the democratic framework.“Udahlah bersaralah“ campaign which involves pamphlet distribution and awareness calls for people to think properly for the General Election. The action and activity is totally within the democratic space allowed by Constitution.

Sad to see, higher ups in police unable to differentiate national and constitutional rights from the political party in power. Stand up for democratic rights and let us not allow this kind of intimidation hold us back.

* Dr Jeyakumar Devaraj is the Sungai Siput MP and is currently detained with 5 others under the Emergency Ordinance. His arrest is related to his involvement with the upcoming Bersih rally.

    I know this Dr Jeyakumar Devaraj although he may not know me. He has to be framed and victimized, for sure.

    Canland’s governance demonstrates its perverseness clearly here.

    Look at what the CIA self admission of interefering with Libya. Divided now and chaotic and full of unwanton kilings and sufferings. For what? To fulfull the debased ambition of a few who want power and money!!! The people of Malaysia will disappoint the trouble makers TODAY that they choose freedom and prosperity and not chaos and anarchy!!!.

    Look at Iraq now!!! CIA trained Saddam Hussain and then disposed him and the country now in in turmoil and suicide bombers every other day. People of Malaysia are an informed lot. They cannot and will not be fooled by that Arse banger and his dirty tricks!!! First he betrayed the country in 1997 by legalising short selling for Soros to short our curriencies and equities to bankrupt our economy. Then with CIA funding, he failed to take over the govt by democratic means in 2008. Now he is resorting to Arab style so called peace demonstrations have proven to be violent !!!! This traitor should be hanged !!!!.
