My friends from PAS and PKR supporting us in the vigil

Young and old came out to support

Last night, over 70 residents in Subang Jaya joined us in the candle light vigil for Teresa Kok. Young and old, men and women of different races stood for one hour in silent protest against the usage of ISA on civilians. In my very short remarks, I thanked the residents for coming out in support of our call for the abolishment of ISA and reminded them that RPK and Teresa Kok are our friends and we must continue to urge the government for their early release. Special thanks to the police for allowing us to have the vigil. It ended at 8:30pm sharp.

We must continue to pray for our country. This evil law is used to perpetuate the the rule of the BN racist party. There must be an end to ISA. It is unjust, cruel and wrong.
There is no rights for the citizen, the police can come to take you away without any warrant of arrest.
The British used it against the communist, BN use it against her citizenry.

This is the way to show solidarity rather than all that firery talk which agrevates the issue. I wish the opposition would organize more of this in PJ.
keep it up Hannah!!

I am totally saddened that the very people who should in fact safe guard our rights are violating them just for their own personal glory.

We stand in solidarity with all those who have been detained unnecessarily just because they dared to stand up, voice out the cries from the rakyat's heart and be counted.

Justice must prevail...not the kind of "justice" currently being dished out but JUSTICE as it should be...pure and unsullied.

the real culprits are still out on the loose.. totally unfair..

its sad to see people held without giving them chance to prove innocence.. whatever happened to "innocent until proven guilty"?

What happened to that?
