RKP to be freed later today, what about all the others detained without trial in Malaysia

It is indeed very good that RPK is to be released from unlawful detention under the ISA, but there are many more people under detention without trial in Malaysia, under the ISA, Emergency Ordinance, and other oppressive, draconian and undemocratic laws.

Until such laws are repealed, and unless all those detained without trial are released, the candlelight vigils, and the peaceful gatherings to protest against them should continue.

The US has new new President Barak Obama who heralds a new beginning and a change for the better for the United States and even the whole world.

In Malaysia, change is long overdue, now is the time for this change.

All those who are eligible to vote, but have not yet registered to vote, please do so as a matter of utmost urgency.

At the next general election, you can make a difference.

Those who do not vote, or who have not registered as a voter and thus cannot vote, may make all the difference between a victory for Pakatan Rakyat and change, or more of the same BN style oppression.
