BLACKOUT 505: Photos That Raises Lots Of Questions

23 06 2013

The opposition parties that called themselves Pakatan Rakyat (PR) expected yesterday’s Blackout 505 or Black 505 illegal demonstration in Padang Merbok, Kuala Lumpur to be their biggest demonstration ever.

The opposition parties brought their supporters from other parts of the country to the demonstration venue, hoping to show to the foreign reporters that most Malaysian supported them even though we are facing a hazardous haze problem in Kuala Lumpur.

They even brought in the Orang Asli or the Malaysian aboriginal people to take part in the illegal demonstration by carrying some banners written in English!

Did the Orang Asli wrote the banners themselves?

I do not think so.

It is very funny when the illegal demonstration’s organisers gave the Orang Asli English written banners to be carried around; may be they thought that the Orang Asli communicate in English instead of their native languages and the Malay language.

Looking at the photos posted in popular blogs, these are some questions that I want to ask:

DO PR LEADERS CARE FOR THEIR SUPPORTERS? Kuala Lumpur is facing a hazardous haze that we have to close our doors and windows to avoid the haze. And when PR ordered their supporters to go outside for hours to demonstrate, the demonstrators could face health problems just because of taking part in that illegal demonstration.

Look at the buildings in the circle. Do they look clear?

DO THE DEMONSTRATORS CARE ABOUT THEIR CHILDREN? Some of the demonstrators brought along their kids with them, some in Blackout t-shirts. But do they really care about them? If this illegal demonstration turned into a riot like Bersih 3.0, the children could be badly injured. And some kids could be facing asthma problems (like me) and being outside in the haze for hours could make us sick.

Are they kids or are they adults?

Are they kids or are they adults? It is against the law, clause 2(e) and 2(f) of Peaceful Assembly Act 2012 to bring children to this kind of rally even if it is legal

DO THE ORANG ASLI UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY ARE DOING? The Orang Asli that joined the demonstrators at the Masjid Jameq were reportedly led by an Indian. They were holding banners written in English! But do they understand what their banners say? If they wrote the banners themselves, will the banners be written in English? If they are the educated Orang Asli, they’ll be able to understand English but the traditional Orang Asli could not, the same as most people from the traditional villages away from the  do they really understand what they are doing and the reason why they participated in the illegal demonstration?

Take a good look at the banner. English or Malay?

Take a good look at the banner. If they prepared the banner themselves, will the banner be in English or Malay?

Here's a closer view. I do not think the word murder that is written on the banner exists in the Malay dictionary.

Here’s a closer view. I do not think the words such as ‘murder’ and ‘bribery’ that is written on the banner exist in either the Malay or their native language vocabularies.

DOES PR SUPPORTS THE COMMUNIST? In yesterday’s illegal demonstration, there were people carrying flags with:

  • Red rectangle at the top

  • White rectangle at the bottom

  • 12 yellow stars at the top right

The flags were similar to the ones used by the illegal Parti Komunis Malaya’s (PKM). So what is the connection between the Pakatan Rakyat and the communists?

Flags in the circle are used by the Communists in Malaysia.

DOES PR WANTS BLACK 505 TO TURN INTO A RIOT? Khalid Mohd Ismath tweeted on 21 June 2013, saying;

“The success of this assembly is when 3 police trucks were overturned, 2 water cannons were destroyed and when 3 FRU busses were destroyed.”

Khalid tweetKhalid Mohd Ismath is one of the main PR’s illegal demonstration activist. His tweet called for a riot! They wanted to destroy the FRU busses, they want to destroy the water cannon, and they want to over turn trucks not only cars like in Bersih but trucks!

ARE THEY TRYING TO TURN BLACK 505 INTO SOMETHING LIKE ARAB SPRING? I saw a photo of a demonstrator carrying the Syrian flag. But why   must a flag of Syrian be waved in that illegal demonstration? Is it because of they want to start something like the Arab Spring?

Is PR trying to make this like the Arab Spring.
