MALAYSIA POLICE BREAK UP PEACEFUL ISA PROTEST
A group of anti-ISA citizens peacefully gathered near the Masjid Jamek mosque in Jalan Tun Perak, central Kuala Lumpur on 26th September 2008.
The group only wanted to distribute leaflets calling for the Internal Security Act to be abolished but when they tried to unfurl a banner opposite the mosque, police moved in and broke them up. The police confiscated their banner as well as the leaflets.
Abolish ISA Movement (GMI) president Syed Ibrahim Syed Noh condemned the Government’s use of the ISA.
He said that GMI’s Hari Raya demands were that the Government release all ISA detainees so they could celebrate the festival with their families.
