Haris Ibrahim of Peoples Parliament on 26 September made this annoncement:
Return the judiciary to the rakyat : A petition to His Majesty the Yang DiPertuan Agung
September 26th, 2007
"People, if His Majesty is to take a lead in sorting out the mess that the judiciary is in, he must know that we, the rakyat, are behind him.
The proposed petition communicates our concerns and our support for Royal action to set the judiciary back on track.
This is not my petition only, just like the judiciary is not mine.
It is yours, too, and the problems with the judiciary will affect you or your family some day.
It may be too late then.
I read so many of you complaining about the way things are in the country.
Here is a chance to try and do something other than just gripe and bitch.
Please lend your support for the petition and get your friends and family to do the same."
.......He later continued: " This petition is about putting right all that has gone wrong with the judiciary. There is a time when you must stand and be counted. Now is the time. There is no room for fears."
In fact this petition is only the beginning of of the many, many things we, the rakyat, need to undertake if we are going to get back our country.
If you allow fear to hold you back now, you will never get going. Watch, then, as this country gets flushed down the toilet bowl, as surely as it will, IF WE ALL DO NOTHING.
Please, no more fears. Let us join in solidarity to return the judiciary to the rakyat. We want a least 5000 signatures before we deliver it to His Majesty."
I figured that people were wary to append their IC to their name as is a requirement. Let me be very blunt: This is no time to be afraid. If we are not courageous now, we will never be, and our children and those who come after us will ask : WHY DIDN'T THEY DO IT? I for one, hope that no one will point a finger at me to ask: Why didn't you do it......at least for us? I dread the day when my Malaysian grandchildren if they found out about my pusillanimity, ask: Kong, kong, why not?...you were afraid to give your IC number together with your name? You couldn't be brave for us? This thought already scares the shit out of me.
Guys, also remember this. This is a petition to our Agung, the Supreme Ruler. To prove to him that our petition is credible and believe in what we are about, we must append our IC number. His status deserves that much. So fellow Bangsa Malaysian, sign with pride and courage. To those who have signed the petition and to those who YOU will persuade to sign in the coming weeks, I dedicate the picture below.
