Would you stop calling him “Pak Lah”?

 The police again took side with the developer in the demolition of Kg Berembang in Ampang. The Blue-uniformed hooligans from MPAJ together with the FRU demolished the surau yesterday. They have slapped some young girls and boys and two of the girls have lost their consciousness after the assault.

 The 22 year-old Norhasliana Osman Taad who was in coma for a few hours after the FRU assault last week was again slapped and kicked by the MPAJ officers yesterday. They slapped her face several times when she was putting up a defence for the surau. She told me that two girls, i.e. Aida Suhaida(15) and Siti Humairah Bt Shuhaimi(13 ) were both fainted after the assaults.

9 activists from PSM and Jerit and other NGOs and 2 villagers who were there to protect the surau were arrested by the  police. 23 activists were arrested in the first round of demolition last week.

What has happened to our Bolehland now, Mr Prime Minister? In the first demolition exercise 10 days ago, a letter from his department was ignored by the local authority who took order from the Selangor Menteri Besar Khir Toyo. The man has said nothing until today, leaving  every villagers in Kg Berembang wondering who is in-charge in the country today.

I have suggested to RPK of Malaysia-Today that a legal aid fund should be set up immediately to help all those girls and boys, activists and villagers who were assaulted by the police and MPAJ officers. We hope all readers of Malaysia-today.net and colour-blind will provide generously towards the fund. 

It’s time for all Malaysians to stand up against the tyranny of the Barisan Nasional Goverment under the man who was “affectionately” called Pak Lah. I have stopped calling him with that name more than a year ago. 

Malaysiakini has the story…

Chaos reigns in Kg Berembang

Nov 30, 06 1:24pm


The Ampang Jaya Municipal Council tore down the only remaining structure in Kampung Berembang in Ampang – a surau – but not before leaving the 30-year-old village looking like a battle ground.Scores of residents of Kampung Berembang, along with members of several non-government organisations and political parties, were involved in a physical battle with enforcement officers from the council, who were backed by police and the Federal Reserve Unit to save the surau.Last week, the council had demolished all the 50-odd houses in the village, leaving only the surau behind – that too after a long and hard protest by the villagers and members of a grassroots movement, Jerit.

The villagers had since put up makeshift shelters amid their demolished houses in the bid to protect the surau.

This morning, MPAJ, armed with four bulldozers, came in to finish the job and again they faced stiff resistence from the villagers.Some 60 villagers and activists had stood steadfast in their last stand against the demolition. They had also parked their vehicles in a cordon around the surau to stop the bulldozers. Attempts by the pro-tem secretary-general of Parti Sosialis Malaysia S Arutchelvan to negotiate with enforcement agencies failed and a scuffle broke out when the MPAJ personnel started uprooting trees just outside the surau.But the situation got out of hand when the MPAJ enforcement team started cutting the fence of the surau at 11am.They then towed away the vehicles cordoning the surau using MPAJ tow-trucks to an unknown destination. 
Battle field

Villagers who tried to block the demolition were violently shoved and pushed aside by the MPAJ enforcement officers, who numbered more than 100.

Things took an ugly turn when the police and the FRU joined the fray to beat the villagers and their supporters who had gathered there.Women and children, who were holed up inside the surau, were also not spared.

The enforcement officers were aggressive against both the women and children. One woman who had locked herself with a steel chain to the surau was forcibly removed.

The officers were seen pulling the hair of some of the women and slapping the children who refused to leave the surau.

“I was afraid but somehow I found the courage to try to stop the officers, maybe because I care for the surau,” said Aida Suhaida (below), 15, who was slapped by a MPAJ officer.

“We are women, and the men should not touch us, but they kicked me and stepped on my stomach while I was sitting at the (surau’s) staircase,” said Norhasliana Osman Taad, 22, who was pull by the officers until her cloth was torn.“They slapped my face until my eyes turned red. The children were also stepped on by them,” she said.In the aftermath of the melee, 11 people – nine activists and two villagers – were arrested and taken to the Ulu Kelang Taman Keramat police station and Ampang Jaya police station.As the dust settled, Kampung Berembang looked like a battle zone with villagers fallen to the ground, some crying in pain, about four fainted and some vomited as a result of sheer exhaustion. 

By 1pm, the MPAJ had completed their surau demolition job.

权组织谴责安邦市议会暴

061130 6:34 :

妇女发展协会(Women’s Development Collective谴责安邦再也市议会今日以暴力手法拆除甘榜伯仁邦(Kampung Berembang)的回教祈祷所。

妇女发展协会执行董事玛丽雅陈阿都拉在文告中说,安邦再也市议会官员使用暴力的手法--丢掷椅子及动粗驱散居民--是不能被接受的

补充说,这是违反基本人权的

安邦再也市议会今早在警方和联邦后备队的协助下,拆除距离吉隆坡双峰塔只有10公里的甘榜伯仁邦仅存的建筑物--回教祈祷所。当局早前已经拆除了当地约50间房屋,导致大约470位居民无家可归。

在非政府组织、反对党领袖和学生组织的支援下,这些居民决定捍卫有关祈祷所免受拆除。

应等法庭判决才拆屋

玛丽雅说,安邦再也市议会以不民主方式行事是一件不幸的事。

她指出,市议会理应等待法庭对居民入禀阻止拆除行动的申请作出判决后,再进行拆除行动也不迟。

这片自50年代就存在的木屋区将被铲平来兴建组屋。被州政府视为非法居住的甘榜伯仁邦木屋区居民,在一年前被令搬迁到蒲种的甘榜慕希巴(Kampung Muhibah)。

但是,居民要求迁徙至另一个比较靠近其乡村的地点,但是却被安邦再也市议会拒绝。

居民曾向首相署求助,首相署也曾经致函予雪州大臣莫哈末基尔,要求展延拆屋行动至明年4月的法庭案件审结为止。

目前距离法庭聆审只有5个月,安邦再也市议会的行动明显是不尊重司法程序。

促警方释放11名被扣人士

在今早的冲突中,共有11人包括9名社运分子和2名居民因为捍卫祈祷所免受拆除而遭逮捕。他们已被送往淡江克拉末花园和安邦再也警察局。

马人民之声敦促警方立即释放上述11名人士,同时认为他们不应该受到逮捕。

由于法庭案件仍在进行中,安邦再也市议会和警方不应该偏帮任何一方,因为他们的任务不是为了服务发展商来拆除屋子。

压迫人民阵线(JERIT)也支持当地居民的行动,其发言人巴拉美斯指出,虽然他们的搭建的帐篷今天已经遭到拆除,但是他们将搭建新的帐篷及继续逗留在此处

她指出,安邦再也市议会也正在3个主要入口处挖掘深坑,以便阻止居民进入。

但是我不认为这会有作用,因为居民已经是在里面了。

    Was it the Court of Appeal that ruled MPAJ not having to bear any responsibility on the Highlan Tower?

    If a Surau is torned down, how much impact would it have on Malay voting trends in the next AGMs?

    Pondering questions…….
