We were told by friends in Malaysia that the transmission of the COVID-19 pandemic has gradually subsided since the pandemic struck earlier this year.
Until the Sabah state election was held on September 26. Power-mad politicians have campaigned in Sabah which at that time was spreading brutally this pandemic.
Politicians from Peninsular Malaysia, who originally came from controlled areas, entered Sabah, which at the time was experiencing a contagious outbreak to campaign to ensure their party won. And then brought the epidemic of the disease back to Peninsular Malaysia, thus triggering new infections and clusters when the virus spreads again.
As a result of politicians not taking care of these SOPs and quarantine, the situation in Malaysia today is getting worse where the people are restless with the new wave that is hitting soon. Politicians are blaming the people again for the new wave as if the people are not following the SOP and social distancing.
Malaysians to some extent began to reject these irresponsible politicians because they did not take seriously the issue, involving the health of the people.
The people are fed up with dirty politics and political coups that are more important than the health of the people. Because of that, the people began to show their dissatisfaction through various mediums, to make politicians aware of the courage to take responsibility for their actions and the mistakes they have made.
Friends there demanded that these politicians step down from their respective seats because they had failed in managing the well-being of the people.
Salute Malaysian friends!

On 28th August (Friday), over a dozen police with automatic weapons and K-9 unit attacked Rumah Api (social center/house project in Kuala Lumpur) during a concert on that night. The police raided the house project and raid everybody during the concert and also trashed the living space of people who live there without any warrant or solid reason for the raid.
We all believe the raid were conducted due to the connection of Bersih 4 Rally which happen on the next days (29 and 30th) which is totally insane since the organizer of the concert, participants, and Rumah Api have little interest to join or even support the rally, due to our political stance on the issue of election and voting system.
The state use Rumah Api as the scapegoat of recent event of attack on banks and multinational corporations in KL for the past 2 years. So far, they found nothing to link us with that events. The police seize all the musical equipment at the concert hall, seize 2 computers of people who live there, one smart phone, artwork, and books belonging to people who live there. The police said they search the building for any weapons or explosives that can link us to terrorism. (more…)

“… i send this news not because i agree with the objective of this civil liberation organization but more importantly, we are involved in the protest because of its support from ordinary people who are against the repression from authorities and the dictatorship government.”
