‘Let man be fair and just: do not steal land that belongs to those people. They, like we, have the right to live and earn their livelihood.’ The people of Sarawak and Sabah, I believe, are waking up, and they will courageously pursue their goal to get back the land that belongs to them.
Anonymous: “Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and unto God the things that are God’s.”
This is the perfect statement on ownership of property, and in the modern world, dictators and bullies should be smacked down for their greed and vulgar show of power.
The people of Sarawak and Sabah, I believe, are waking up, and they will courageously pursue their goal to get back the land that belongs to them.
Let man be fair and just: do not steal land that belongs to those people. They, like we, have the right to live and earn their livelihood. Let us give them their land.
Ghkok: Despite the overwhelming and oppressive force of the state government, the tycoons and the weapons at their disposal, ie, the gangsters and other apparatus, fortunately the judiciary appears to be independent. It seems to be the last refuge for the oppressed people of the state. Certainly change must come as soon as possible before even the judiciary succumb to the tyrants.
Secondly, despite the usual propaganda about ‘Sarawak for Sarawakians’, it is interesting to see that out of desperation, the state government is parading Rais Yatim, Muhyiddin Yassin and Najib Razak in the interiors of the state.
So what is it? Are the ‘peninsular’ politicians trying to save the state from the clutches of the Sarawak tyrants, or is Sarawak supposed to save itself from the clutches of the Peninsula? The BN seems to be very confused.
Keen Observer From Brunei: Yes, they’re really ‘carpet bombing’ Limbang and Lawas. YB after YB – all bearing sweet words. Guess what I hear on the ground though. Only when BN came so close to losing their shirt in Limbang in the last round did they bother to come with goodies.
I hope the good doctor in Limbang and the fearless lawyer from Lawas will hunker down and come out fighting, and may they rout the unholy forces of corruption and win.
Cocomomo: Hopefully Sarawak PKR chief Baru Bian can lead Pakatan to an upset victory over BN. Sarawak Pakatan must remain united and not let the negative events in Pakatan in the Peninsula affect them. Maybe the Peninsular Pakatan leaders should stay away from campaigning in Sarawak and let the local leaders lead Pakatan to a decisive victory.
DOC: All dictatorial states eventually fall. The question is when and how much damage it exerts on the people and its repercussions before its demise.
