Malaysia: “Where is democracy?”
Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak of Malaysia celebrated his 100th day in office two weeks ago. But many of his constituents chose to mark the event by asking “Where is democracy?” in Malaysia. Critics believe the Prime Minister has undermined the country’s democratic system of government.
The 711whereisdemocracy blog was set-up encouraging Malaysian citizens to support the protest campaign:
How do we do it? By asking the simple question – “where is democracy?”. After 100 days, we are still searching for it, we are still yearning for it, we are still fighting for it.
How do you ‘ask’ the question? Print it or write it on a piece of paper. Hold it up in front of a place of significance – police station, court complex, government department office, parliament building, state assembly building, local council office etc, and take a picture.
It will be a peaceful but powerful message of civil disobedience that we the people are politicians’ bosses and no politicians defiant of public opinion can escape punishment at the next poll. Civil disobedience is a peaceful act that every citizen can participate and make a difference.
Even Lepak who was in Japan participated in the virtual protest
Apparently we can’t find any Democracy in Malaysia so have to look for it in other countries! hahahaha in Japan… maybe there is democracy…maybe not….
Huichun is also seeking democracy in Malaysia
How I wish Democracy In Malaysia Was As Convenient And As Accessible As The Ubiquitous 7-Eleven!
You are also asking a leading question, “Where is Democracy?” pity,but it is nowhere to be found. Too careless a reply? no, it seems that our leaders have been fooling about telling the world that we are a true Democracy.Or does it exist only for the rich and the famous.
