whoa!! good news! good news! wonderful news in fact! penang leads! finally the government agreed on a speakers’ square for us penangites. this is very good news for activists and all NGOs.

say, we should revive our PAIN – penang anti isa network – and maybe have a anti isa vigil there one day. the last time we had it – ironically at the same place, as expected, the police came to stop us and our MC was arrested. this time we can do it without fear.

the millennium square at the esplanade is a very good strategic location as many people frequent the place since it is by the sea and there are lots of food stalls there. so do come and show your support at the launch. i’m taking leave from work specially to go!

whoa!! thanks to YAB lim guan eng!
