No ISA Vigil - 27th September 2008 - Kuala Lumpur

I was there. We were there around 7:30pm. Dataran Merdeka was sealed up by the Police.

I saw groups of people holding candles, I told my wife, well, it is more that what we have expected. We thought it would be around 200. But we see more than 500.

When the crowd started to move from Dataran Merdeka to the Hindu temple opposite Pudu Raya, the whole of Jalan Tun Perak is filled by people, from all walks of life, carrying candle, walk peacefully.

It was estimated around 2,000 to 5,000.

It is probably the biggest birthday celebration for RPK.

It is probably the biggest crowd together demanding ISA detainees to be freed immediately.

It is probably the biggest crowd together demanding ISA to be repealed.

So law makers from both the ruling parties and opposition, do you hear the people's voice?

Now is your time to do something in the Parliament, repeal ISA, support private bill to repeal ISA regardless of which political camp you are from.

Tonight, I salute those who took part, young and old, you have made a history, and you have made your point.

NO ISA, restore basic human rights!
