HRP rally to proceed tomorrow despite no permit (Malaysiakini)

he Human Rights Party-planned rally will still continue tomorrow despite the red light from the police and the government.

NONE“It’s still on. There are no changes,” said information chief S Jayathas.

When speaking to Malaysiakini, he said that the government had repeatedly rejected their applications for a police permit.

Jayathas said that letters have been sent to the inspector-general of police, the Home Ministry as well as the Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak himself.

“There is no response from any of them,” he said.

Undeterred, HRP is taking to the streets of Kuala Lumpur tomorrow morning in a battle which they had hoped to be a repeat of the November 2007 Hindraf rally which saw 30,000 protestors.

Back then, the Hindu Rights Action Force had organised one of the biggest demonstrations in the nation’s capital in recent times, a culmination of long-standing Indian dissatisfaction over marginalisation.

Hindraf was subsequently banned with five of its leaders detained under the Internal Security Act. They have all since been released and some have gone on to rebrand themselves as HRP.

Jayathas said that they hoping that “two or three thousand” would come out to protest against what they claim, “institutionalised racism in Malaysia for the past 56 years”.

“The Indians are systematically denied minority rights. Malaysia is the most racist country in the world. Apartheid has already ended in South Africa but we still have it in Malaysia.

“We’re not asking for special rights but we just want equal opportunity,” he said.

Police: Protest at your own peril


Despite much build-up to the rally, the police have repeatedly issued stern warnings against the party and would-be protestors.

“I think I have made myself very clear in my statement (sent two days ago),” he said when contacted byMalaysiakini.

On Thursday, he had said legal action would be taken against anyone involved in the gathering, but the police would consider issuing a permit if the HRP were to move their rally indoors where there is no “likelihood of a situation being created that would jeopardise public order”.

HRP plans to march tomorrow from Jalan Sultan Ismail to the KL city centre, where they will lodge a police report at the Dang Wangi district police headquarters against Umno over the party’s ‘racism’.


Meanwhile,


waytha_solo_speechDear friends

These are the do’s and don’ts for the 27th Feb March against UMNO Racism

Bring your digital camera with back up batteries

Bring a 2-litre bottle of water at least

Bring a towel to cover your face in event of tear gas

Bring a small packet of salt

Look out for suspicious agent provocateurs. They may be Malays or even Indian mandores who are thugs hired by UMNO to disrupt our peaceful March

Should you see someone behaving/acting/ uttering words which are provocative; make sure you take a photograph or video of him/her. This would be evidence, which we may use to show the international community of how UMNO operates.

Similarly if you see Police or plain clothes Policemen attacking our fellow brothers and sisters, make sure you take photographs and videos. Be careful as the UMNO thugs ie the 3line and Pekida thugs may pose as plain-clothes policemen. Do not near them. Keep away and alert others on the presence of these suspicious characters. Remember we want your photos/videos.

If you subscribe to broadband on your phone then send your photos, short videos to Hindraf3@gmail .com and we would immediately upload the photos/ videos. Keep sending the photos as we would be constantly uploading them. Let us know what is happening on the ground as we would update in our sites. Hindraf and HRP would cover the event LIVE on our websites.

If you witness an incident that needs to be recorded and disseminated to others, then sms your message to or call 0102733644 or 0163507189

Our Hindraf reps would give the necessary guides on the march or any other further directions as situation may deem fit.

In the event of the main Hindraf leaders arrested immediately before or during the rally, do not worry and do not be mislead by Political opportunists/Mandores both from BN or PR who may hijack and divert you. We have sufficient back up leaders who would give the necessary instructions.

Be wary of Police SB and their agents who may create confusion and divert the true intentions of our March.

FOR ALL INQUIRIES/DIRECTION OR EMERGENCY CONTACT . 0102733644 or 0163507189

There would also be a 24-hour command centre both in KL and London to answer your calls.

THIS IS A HINDRAF PEACEFUL MARCH AGAINST UMNO RACISM. DO NOT ALLOW ANY POLITICIAN TO HIJACK THE CAUSE.
