Joyful celebration of people' s empowerment

At the thanksgiving kenduri held earlier this afternoon in Batu Muda within the Batu parliamentary constituency, I met the lawan-tetap-lawan Nora (second from left) and our other common friends again. Nora, a petty trader and young mother, had been at the forefront of the Reformasi protest movement since 1999. After the multi-cultural performances of kompang, lion dances as well as Nathaswaram and Thaval, a people's imam led an Islamic prayer to express the people's gratitude to One True X for the election of Tian Chua as the new MP.

Strive to preserve, enhance people solidarity
