SELANGOR WATER PROTEST


When the government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. 
                                                                                       -Thomas Jefferson- 


They fight for water but they got watered!

Riot police fired tear gas and used water cannons on at least 1 000 protesters near the KL Railway Station as they marched to the Istana Negara to rally against a potential bailout of Selangor water utility companies, few days ago.

I just don’t get it, why need to be so harsh?


It was to be a peaceful march to deliver a memorandum to the Agong on the Selangor water issue, on behalf of Selangorians who will suffer when the price of water is raised without care for the people of Selangor.

Khalid’s administration is fighting for the rights over the water industry promised to provide the first 20 cubic metres water for free and maintain 12 per cent increase in water tariff compared to Syabas’ plans of a 25 per cent increase in 2012 and a 20 per cent increase in 2015.

Plus they also want to stop from the company keeps paying a huge wage to SYABAS CEO, RM425k a month! (Men, that is almost half of million ringgit a month, kalah gaji Najib!)

Just why a simple think like showing displeasure and nothing to do with national security has to go to extent of tear gas? Just because they are in the opposition they kena. 

And why in the hell there was no news about this event in electronic media? That night, I waited for this event to be covered by TV3, but shite I was disappointed! Where was Tv3? Where was RTM? They supposed to cover this story and show it in their prime time news as what they always did before this if there were few monkeys protest to the opposition! So unfair!

And there were few complains recorded of the massive traffic jam. People, don't blame the poor fellas who were gassed and water cannoned for causing the jam please. If the police had been reasonable and allowed a peaceful march, there would not be traffic jams all over KL. It could have been a happy day for all.

These people are protesting against high prices. It is an economic issue and only political because there are parties that is mismanaging the country. 


And please don’t forget Najib's line of "People First, Performance Now"?

People should support any move to stop burdening rakyat via crony projects. Instead of making a Tan Sri very rich, it is better to help the poor thousands irrespective of race!

Just my 2 cents, the police forces are the most pointless of all, while they carrying out order from their masters, their masters are having big fat lunch, shopping luxuriously away, or even having some "great time" with their mistresses / boy toys. 

And as a result, they vent out on the innocent public, which they swore to protect.

What happened to the other pro-government demonstration the so call Anti-Irregularities Federation (GAPS) members gathered to protest against alleged misappropriation of funds by the Selangor government.

Are they allowed to demonstrate? No tear gas on them and water cannon. Obviously this is double standard of the POLICE.

My friend said he was there, and he said to me, if u were there, u know what’s happening, there’s nothing anarchic about this peaceful demo!

Police should know that the rakyat are not enemies of the states! Is it so difficult to understand?

When the rakyat is suffering from high prices of food, water and fuel, it is understandable that they wish to inform the Agong who is our last resort. Perhaps the Agong could stand up for the people! 

If only just to send memo also cannot, why bother to call our country democracy?

All the way Selangor government and rakyat. U are not staging a demonstration but merely fighting for what belongs to the people. Away with corrupted.
