See the support and note the popularity of Perakians' choice - Ir Mohd Nizar the legitimate Perak's MB‘yang sah’.

Despite four(4) Police roadblocks leading to MB’s residence to prevent, deter and intimidate the people from attending the Ceramah at MB’s residence on sun 8 Feb09, Perakians were adamant to attend! Surely and slowly they came trickling in despite the inconveniences - they had to park their vehicles some 1-2 km away and walked in.

Looks like our Police are not there to protect(what is there to protect and against who if not from UMNO?) but definitely working against citizens and protecting the interests of their political masters - UMNO/BN! How they forget it is us tax-payers who are paying their salary damnit(!!) not UMNO or BN!

The road leading to Perak UMNO HQ which is a stone’s throw from Perak MB’s residence, has been closed to traffic since thurs 5 Feb09, as if UMNO owns the whole of Gopeng Road!

Whoever orders this road closure, this, I strongly feel is blatant abuse of power! Residents I know staying this area have been highly inconvenieced and are crying foul of such actions by Police.

In some ways I am glad many supporters of BN have woke up to reality of today’s dirty politics, corruption and blatant abuse of power by by the ’samsengs’ they had been supporting!

Check out Peng's blog for more pix. Note the sea of well-disciplined PR supporters and note the Police roadblocks. Wonder what Police hope to achieve other than to intimidate the public?

Despite the odds, approx 35,000 Perakians from all over made it to MB's residence on sun 8 Feb09 to listen to attend a ceramah! They don't want to be bullied, adamant to prove a point - the Sultan may have the last word but the Rakyats will have the last say, like it or not!

I should think that's a legally actionable instance - people who have been inconvenience should should be suffering ... financial consequential losses !!!

Unless they declare an official curfew! It's different if a curfew is declared.

Hey, with the economy strangled, as it is, life is hardly a bed of pomelos!

This blockade is similar to the Isrealis blockade of GAZA. Now PDRM are behaving just like the Isrealis. Someone should ask the PDRM the reason for closing off Jalan Gopeng.

The round about in front of the MB's residence is a busy junction. The MB's residence itself have a large compound and a large hall. The dining area itself can accommodate several hundred people. Wonder how they provide food fro this crowd. I won;t be surprised that soon they'll cut the water and power supply (again just like the Isrealis)

Come to think of it, the BN regime in Malaysia is no different than the Israeli regime in Israel !!!

If the Israeli regime represses the the Palestinian Muslims in Palestine or Gaza, the BN regime does too, of no less the Malaysian Muslims, the Christians, Hindus, Dayaks and Orang Aslis!

By any other name the BN regime is no less than the Israeli regime!!! Teruklah!

It makes you wonder who the Perak Royalty rules for! As with the Israeli regime?
