The Protest Of Batu Gajah~


May 15, 2007 - Tuesday

The new life. The working life. The new Jordache. Early days. No time to sleep. It was a cold Tuesday morning. I was assigned to follow Husna to the Ministry Of Women, Development, Community and Family Welfare Department. There i was to capture the beautiful image using my Sony Ericsson K750i - 2.0 megapixels phone camera

was the issue about? You know the insult and sexism case on the women leakage?

The furore started last week in the Dewan Rakyat when Opposition MPs tried to raise a motion on the leaking ceiling near the media centre.
Datuk Bung Mokhtar Radin (BN – Kinabatangan) and Datuk Mohd Said Yusof (BN – Jasin) then said “Mana bocor? Batu Gajah pun bocor setiap bulan. (Where is the leak? Batu Gajah [MP Fong Po Kuan] also leaks monthly.

So that's the controversially crazy stuff about the Bocor case by our MPs!

We had this protest-demonstration led by Maria Chin Abdullah, Wanita MCA, Sisters In Islam, Parti Keadilan Rakyat, Democratic Action Party (DAP) ladies from Cheras fighting for rights and dignity.

With shouts and cries from the ladies "Hidup Wanita! Hidup Demokrasi!"

Protestor #1: Kelakuan MP adalah amat kecewa dengan mengatakan seksis. Hidup! Hidup! Wanita Demokrasi!

Protestor #2: PM must stop sexist! Or else we will stop voting! Don't care if it's opposition or government! Suspend Kinabatangan and Jasin!

The continues until Datuk Shahrizat enter the scene and tries to calm the situation. But I don't think she can help to do so. The cold war.

Well i get to learn what's it like to be in a scene of action to listen and observe what's going on and the issue about it.

Then back to the office i get to type my first article, so Boon Siew wants to see how i wrote the thing. But i find what i wrote was like too controversial. So i think they rejected my piece.
