Event for Ambiga pelted with eggs and stones

Event for Ambiga pelted with eggs and stones
An angry mob pelted two DAP state assemblypersons and party supporters at a high tea event in Merlimau, Malacca today that was to feature Bersih 2.0 co-chairperson Ambiga Sreenevasan.

NONEWhen contacted, Ayer Keroh state rep Khoo Poay Tiong (left) said the some hecklers had attacked him and Bandar Hilir rep Tey Kok Kiew while they were leaving the venue after the event.

“A stone hit me and the eggs hit our vehicles. One of our members’ windshield was also broken,” he said (top photo).
Tey's vehicle had one of its tyres punctured, a side mirror broken and its body badly dented by the hecklers (last photo below).
He has since lodged a report at Merlimau police station.
Earlier, Malaysiakini’s phone conversation with Khoo prior to the attack was cut off after incessant screaming was heard in the background.

"Anyone who wanted to come in had to use the kampung road, and police have advised people not to attend to event," he said.
The group clad in red T-shirts - some were the same ones worn by the crowd at last week's Umno 66th anniversary at Bukit Jalil stadium - heckled outside the event while it proceeded.

Khoo said they however decided to proceed with the event as some 300 participants had already turned up.

"Everything is okay inside (at the event), but it's a ruckus outside," Khoo told Malaysiakini during the event.

‘Utterly appalled at intimidation’

Yesterday, a number of pressure groups lodged a police report against Ambiga in an attempt to prevent her from setting foot in Merlimau for the event.

NONEIn a Bersih Youtube posting later, Ambiga (right) said she had wanted to attend the event but decided against it after being advised by organisers.
"I was still going to go but I had received news that there is every intention from some quarters to create chaos and to stop me from speaking in Merlimau.

"As a result the organisers, after consulting with the police have asked me not to come," she said.

Ambiga added that she was "utterly appalled" at the level to which certain parties had descended in attempting to prevent her from speaking.

However, she said that voters should take this incident as a lesson.

"Where ordinary citizens can be threatened and stopped from travelling within their own country and intimidated from giving speeches at the invitation of others," she said.

Heckling at Pakatan ceramahs have been a common sight in recent months as widely speculated early GE looms.

However, this is the first time an event has been disrupted specifically targeting Bersih.


Seals: Will Police advice the people not to attend a UMNO event and no action against "people who create chaos" at events?  Is this NGO is more powerful then the government and the POLICE? To the extend they dont dare to stop this NGO ? Will this NGO one day overthrow UMNO to take power?

No Bersih 4.0 for time being, says Ambiga

Ex-army vets do 'butt exercises' at Ambiga's house

Ex-army vets do 'butt exercises' at Ambiga's house
A group of retired armed forces personnel held ‘butt exercises’ in front of the residence of Bersih co-chairperson Ambiga Sreenevasan in Bukit Damansara early this morning.

NONEThe participants, who claimed to be members of the Malay Armed Forces Veterans Association (PVTM), said the event was held to protest against Ambiga for being an “enemy of the nation who had smeared the country’s name”.

On May 10, a ‘burger protest’ was also held in front of Ambiga’s house by a group of traders who claimed to have suffered losses due to last month’s Bersih 3.0 rally.

Today’s ‘butt exercises’, which took place at 8.30am, is the second demonstration to be held in front of the Bersih co-chairperson’s house in a month.

NONE“We Armed Forces veterans have the right to protest against an ‘enemy’ who tried to smear the nation’s name,” said group president Mohd Ali Baharom.
Ambiga, who was at home, came out to receive a placard from the group.
On May 1, PVTM, with two other NGOs - Suara Anak Muda 1Malaysia and Kelab Mahasiswa 1Malaysia - made a police report at the Dang Wangi police station urging the government to take action on Ambiga and Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim for allegedly instigating the Bersih 3.0 rally.


 The most self disgracing that a person can do. You are insulting yourself by doing this. That is where their brains are located :)
