Rashid Maidin's indestructible spirit honoured

A memorial message published in a Chinese-language newspaper today reads to the effect: Comrade Rashid Maidin's "indestructible spirit lives on forever unbent" (永垂不朽). The four-character classical expression of yong-chui-bu-xiu, which originates from the Spring and Autumn Period in ancient China (722 BC - 481 BC), is very strictly reserved to only honour the memory of martyrs, heroes and heroines.

There goes one of our true fighters for KEMERDEKAAN who didn't give a damn about the Brits.

Someday people will realise their contribution and their heroic fight against colonialism - and maybe they be given the right place in our history books.

REST IN PEACE
