Apart from the disgusting Police harassment of protestors who are not BN members or supporters, it’s worrying that Tony Pua, a Member of Parliament, and I believe ADUN Ronnie Liu too, was rough-housed by Police during the authority’s attempt to disperse the peaceful protestors.
But leave this aside, the opposition people being charged are reasonably high profile pollies, and those supporters who will be charged together with them can at least lean on the pollies' strength - there's comfort in groups.
Yes, I am not so worried about them as they can look after themselves.
What I am more worried about is a sweetie in the north,

Apparently she was a member of the team that organized the anti-ISA candlelight vigil in Penang a couple of months back.
The Police are now harassing her, making her report to the police station during the Chinese New Year celebrations. She may well be charged too.
Unlike the KL/PJ people, she isn’t high profile, but alas, no one seems to care about her plight or have offered any support. Everyone has been focussing on the high profile people. Poor
So, where are those intrepid anti-ISA people now when
I direct my question particularly to those who were praised for taking along their lil’ sweeties to the candlelight vigil, and those who had praised them. Where are they who then had made lots of noises but are now so silent?
Not everyone is a Raja Petra Kamarudin who has the personal bravery, experience, royal connection and indeed the adoring public support to handle such oppressions. In fact
Yes, I do question the authority’s motive in harassing this peaceful ‘civilian’ who exercised her democratic right to protest against the ISA, and in peaceful fashion. Don’t those men in blue have crimes to attend to? Or, why don’t they go and harass that Kulim Wonder who had behaved like a thug.
The MCA had helped Namawee when he was in trouble, so how about the MCA now putting its shoulders on to the task of relieving
Gerakan? Dear Koh Tsu Koon - here's your opportunity to show us you have some care for a Penang lassie.
But most of all, I ask those who were involved in the Penang candlelight vigil, to go and support/help
Put your money where you candle was!
