21st February 2011.



Dear Sir/Madam,

Re: Urgent Request to make Representations to the Government of Malaysia on the Crackdown and possible violence by UMNO sponsored underworld “3 Line”, Pekida and Extremist Perkasa on Human Rights Advocates organising Solidarity March against UMNO racism in Malaysia on 27th February 2011.


I write to you with the utmost urgency for your attention on the above matter.

HINDRAF is a Human Rights organisation that advocates the rights of the marginalized Indian community in Malaysia. Although the Government of Malaysia has banned this movement without well-founded reasons, it has continued to organise various activities affecting human rights issues nationwide and as of late 2007, the movement has been operating from London.

Recently, the Malaysian government took a decision to approve the use of a novel entitled “Interlok” as part of compulsory curriculum material for 5th Form pupils in selected areas in Malaysia but the ethnic Indian community and HINDRAF take exception to the use of the novel because it contains racially insensitive, degrading, humiliating, and disrespectful use of adjectives that is extreme racist nature and on behalf of the Indian community HINDRAF has called for a total ban of the novel. The government has chosen to ignore our compliant but insist that the material will go into circulation once amendments to the material are passed sometime next month.

In response to the recalcitrant attitude of the government, HINDRAF passed a motion to stage a Solidarity March against Racism on 27th February 2011 and in furtherance to the said event, we also organised various road shows, forums, car drive campaigns and such like at national level. We have managed to amass a total of more than 200 Hindraf Human Rights campaigners to carry out grassroots campaigns including distribution of posters and fliers regarding our intention.

However since 10th February 2011, the Government began a crackdown on HINDRAF Human Rights campaigners using harassment, threat of violence, arbitrary arrests and detentions, torture, inhumane and degrading treatment including the demand that female activists remove their Orange Hindraf T-Shirts in public.

On 13th March 2011, a total of 59 Hindraf leaders and volunteers were arrested nationwide for taking part in an Anti Racism (car drive campaign). Police subjected one volunteer to inhumane ill treatment by placing him in a dark room for almost 19 out of 26 hours he was under arrest and detention. More than 120 other volunteers were prevented from continuing their campaigns nationwide.

The Police harassment continued from 13th February with:

a) Intimidation used against venue owners for allowing us to use their halls to conduct our forums;
b) Threatening venue owners with arbitrary arrest;
c) Threatening HINDRAF volunteers with arrests if they were to continue with forum discussions nationwide;
d) Placing HINDRAF volunteers under surveillance and making unannounced visits to their work places to intimidate and put pressure on employers to terminate HINDRAF volunteers from their jobs;
e) Road blocks at strategic points leading to venues of our nationwide forums thus preventing these forums from taking place.
f) Using the Police Federal Reserve Units (PFRU) in full riot gear to carry out a “baton charge” at a function Hall in Penang thus endangering the safety and security of vulnerable individuals such as the elderly, women and children at the anti racism forums.
g) Further arrests of 16 Hindraf leaders and volunteers also took place on 20th February 2011.

The Government of Malaysia is fearful that our road shows and ground campaigns over the last 3 weeks is likely to draw a large crowd for the Solidarity March on 27th February and is thus threatening us with the possible arrests under the draconian Internal security Act which may be a repeat of similar arrests which took place in 2007.

Despite the threats from the Government, we are undeterred as we are committed in our pursuit to continue with our peaceful Solidarity March scheduled on 27th February 2011. We have made an application for a Police permit; although we do not require one under the Federal Constitution, which guarantees Freedom of speech and assembly. We however anticipate that it is very unlikely that the Police would approve our requests for Police permits.

The March on 27th February 2011 would begin at KLCC and terminate at the Jalan Dang Wangi Police Station where more than 1000 people would lodge reports against the current Government which has been ruling for 54 years and its Primer Minister for practising Institutionalised racism in Malaysia.

We write to urge you to make an urgent representation to the Government of Malaysia to respect the citizens’ universal standards of Human rights, as well as the right to assemble and express feelings of discontentment and allow us to proceed with the March peacefully.

We fear the UMNO led Government would engage its agent provocateurs namely, the notorious 3 LINE and Pekida underworld gangs and its outsourced far right extremist wing such as the Perkasa to cause trouble on the said day.

We attach herewith our letters to the Inspector General of Police seeking his protection and co-operation (which thus far has been ignored) and a copy of the Memorandum of Complaint to the Human Rights Commission Malaysia, which is self-explanatory.

Your kind indulgence and urgent action is very much appreciated.

Thank you.

Yours faithfully


P.Waytha Moorthy

MAKIN MERAPU DAH Bn NI...SEKOLAH PUN NAK DI SWASTAKAN...

NUTP Bantah Penswastaan Sekolah
Ditulis oleh BERNAMA
21/02/2011 Share


KUALA LUMPUR 21 FEB : Kesatuan Perkhidmatan Perguruan Kebangsaan (KPPK) hari ini berkata kesatuan itu membantah sebarang langkah untuk menswastakan sekolah kerajaan.

Setiausaha Agungnya Lok Yim Pheng berkata dasar baru kerajaan berhubung kerjasama awam dan swasta dalam pendidikan perlu hanya terhad kepada penambahbaikan dalam infrastruktur serta peralatan dan tidak seharusnya menyentuh aspek akademik.

Beliau berkata penswastaan bidang lain akan 'melonjakkan kos dan menjadikan persekolahan terlalu mahal dan di luar jangkaan golongan miskin.'

Beliau mengulas kenyataan Timbalan Perdana Menteri Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin yang juga Menteri Pelajaran, di Limbang minggu lepas bahawa kerajaan menimbangkan untuk menswastakan sekolah tertentu atau membenarkan pihak swasta untuk menguruskan pembaikan dan penyelenggaraan.

Lok berkata bantuan sektor pendidikan seharusnya merangkumi pembiayaan dalam bentuk biasiswa dan bantuan kewangan kepada golongan miskin.

Bagaimanapun, kesatuan itu mahu pentadbiran, sukatan pelajaran dan pengajaran diselia oleh Kementerian Pelajaran tanpa sebarang campur tangan daripada rakan daripada sektor swasta.

Terdapat 9,943 sekolah di seluruh negara, dengan 5.4 juta pelajar.

ADAKAN PILIHANRAYA ADIL ATAU RAKYAT AKAN MEMBANTAH




KERDAU- DS Anwar Ibrahim semasa berceramah di Kerdau di hadapan lebih 15000 orang yang hadir telah memberi amaran kepada PM Najib Razak berhubung dengan kejatuhan kerajaan di Mesir dan Tunisia.Beliau mengingatkan kepada pimpinan Umno bahawa jangan ingat rakyat tidak sedar dan mengambil iktibar sebagaimana kejadian yang berlaku di Negara arab yang sedang menuju kepada perubahan.

Turut hadir dalam ceramah berkenaan ialah Dato Chua Jui Meng,Dato Fauzi Abdul Rahman ,YB Tian Chua,Dato Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man,YB Syed ADUN Semantan,YB Leong Ngah-Ngah ADUN Triang, dan Timbalan PKR Negeri Sdr Mohd Nizam Hamid, serta Tn Hj Suhaimi Said,serta pimpinan PAS negeri dan kawasan..

“Umno harus melihat bahawa ada dikalangan pimpinan Umno yang hanya tahu mengganguk tetapi tidak mahu membela rakyat. Malahan kejadian rasuah, system kehakiman yang semakin teruk,harga barang yang semakin meningkat serta tiadanya peningkatan kenaikan gaji.Sedangkan pemimpin di berikan kontrak berbillion ringit.

Menurut Anwar , bulan lalu Mubarak di sanjung . Pemerintah hanya ingin supaya kuasa terus berada di tangan mereka. Maka langkah demi langkah di buat bagi mengatasi masalah yang berlaku. Bermula dengan pemecatan menteri, perlantikan naib presiden dan sebagainya diambil regime Mubarak ,bagi membolehkan mereka terus berkuasa dan merompak harta kekayaan Negara.Rakyat sedar semua kejadian yang berlaku dan maka kerana itulah tercetusnya tentangan di jalanraya.

Beliau juga mengingatkan pimpinan Umno bahawa rakyat telah celik dengan perkara yang berlaku di dalam Negara ini.Ianya bukan sahaja berkaitan dengan kenaikan paras harga barangan keperluan, namun ianya juga adalah berkaitan dengan banyaknya berlaku rasuah namun tiada sebarang tindakan jelas yang di ambil.Baik isu komisyen kapal selam yang sedang di siasat di Negara Perancis dan sehinga kepada komisyen dan kematian model mongolia,namun tidak ada pun tindakan yang diambil pemerintah.Begitu juga dengan lain-lain rasuah yang terbukti di simpan dan tidak ada tindakan jelas yang diambil pmerintah.

Selain itu juga menurut Dato Sri Anwar lagi, jika pemerintah cuba memanipulasikan suruhanjaya pilihanraya dimana berlakunya kejadian penipuan dalam pilihanraya, maka pimpinan Pakatan Rakyat tidak akan teragak-agak akan mengerakkan jentera rakyat secara besar-besaran.

“Saya ingin mengingatkan dan meberikan amaran keras kepada Dato Seri Najib supaya mengadakan pilihanraya yang adil dan telus ,jika kamu menggunakan suruhanjaya pilihanraya kita akan gerakkan rakyat untuk membantah habis-habisan” demikian ucapan Anwar di sambut dengan laungan takbir dan tepukan gemuruh ribuan rakyat yang hadir di markas PAS Kerdau semalam.

ANWAR: PEMBERIAN KONTRAK PETRONAS KEPADA PIMPINAN UMNO

KERDAU - Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim malam tadi telah mendedahkan pemberian kontrak bernilai RM2.45 bilion bagi membina pelantar minyak kepada tiga syarikat dipercayai milik kroni Umno Barisan Nasional (BN). Ketua Umum KEADILAN itu tidak menolak kemungkinan tiga syarikat itu dikhuatiri berperanan menyalur sebahagian keuntungan kepada Umno BN menjelang pilihan raya umum akan datang.

“Saya mahukan wang itu dikembalikan kepada rakyat. Barulah kita mengangkat martabat serta taraf hidup rakyat. Saya nak jadikan Malaysia negara model, negara contoh apabila kita memerintah,” katanya.

Awal Februari ini, Petronas mengumumkan pemberian kontrak Perkhidmatan Risiko (RSC) kepada Petrofac Energy Developments Sdn Bhd (Petrofac), Kencana Energy Sdn Bhd (Kencana Energy) dan Sapura Energy Ventures Sdn Bhd (Sapura Energy).Ketiga-tiga syarikat ini dikatakan mempunyai kaitan dengan pimpinan dan anak kepada bekas pimpinan Umno.

Sapura Energy, anak syarikat SapuraCrest Petroleum Bhd (SapuraCrest) dianugerah kontrak untuk membangunkan pelantar minyak dan gas berantai yang dianggar bernilai AS$800 juta (RM2.45 bilion) di persisiran pantai Semenanjung.

Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif Kumpulan Kencana adalah Datuk Mokhzani Mahathir, anak bekas Perdana Menteri Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad yang baru-baru ini dinamakan sebagai antara individu terkaya di Malaysia dengan harta peribadi bernilai RM1.075 bilion.

Anwar juga mendedahkan sebuah nama syarikat yang di beri nama CARIMIN yang di katakana ada hubungan antara pemimpin dalam negera ini.

“Saya mahu hantar Najib jadi duta besar Malaysia ke Mongolia,” kata Anwar disambut sorakan meriah dan tepukan gemuruh daripada hadirin.
