Your Typical EO6 Vigil

Usually, the EO6 vigil is usually held at the main gate towards the police headquarters at Bukit Aman, but for today the cops have been shouting that the vigil is a "threat to national security", a reason that doesn't sound sensible considering people carry no weapons that can harm others. And while on the way back I overheard a cop yelling a "racist manner" remark which says of bringing pillows to sleep on the streets like beggar. 

Anyhow, today is an unusual one and there are close to 100 people doing today's hourly vigil.

Two notable people there were SUARAM's Dr Kua and Tony Pua of course. 

The usual thing is the shouting chorus of Hidup Rakyat, Mansuh E.O and etc.. following by stories and then announcements, all with candles lit up. From 8 to 9 that is. Well, in summary it's because that the six are detained without trial nor proper charge that those people out there were put in this kind of situation. So whose fault is it really? Cops acting on faulty intel? 

Today's one is not at the usual gate but at Jalan Tanglin / Parlimen

It's Annie a.k.a Auntie Bersih there with a "Hidup Rakyat" shout.

And there's Tony Pua

  1. Why suddenly these cops, whose salaries are paid by US, lost their balls?
    Afraid of 70 year old aunties holding flowers?
    People holding candles?
