History

Since November 2007, there has been numerous rallies by various segment of the society in Malaysia through non-violent activities ie BERSIH rally on November 10, 2007, (Electoral reform), HINDRAF rally on November 25, 2007 (minority right issues), International Human Right rally on December 10, 2007 (universal human right issue), and the latest pricing hike protest (public interest) on January 26, 2008 to show the will of the people but have faced severe backlash by way of intimidation, fear and arrest attributed by the totalirism of the ruling administration under the guise of democracy.

All the above had been well documented in all international media.

Current issue

Now, on February 16, 2008, HINDRAF is planning in a non violent way by handing over roses and peacefully requesting the Prime Minister of Malaysia to release five (5) detainees of the HINDRAF (under ISA – without trial or charge) who had voiced their concern in the ever deteriorating state of the Indian minority in Malaysia and in a broader sense to provide equal platform for all Malaysians for the enhancement of the society.

In support of this, Malaysians in New York are holding a peaceful rally to show their support for the common cause of upholding human and civil liberty issues that is lacking in Malaysia and seek the release of the HINDRAF 5.

Objective

In order for it to be effective to bring any changes or international pressure, it is always vital that that all Malaysian irrespective of creed, color, race and religion play a role around the world to show solidarity for the common cause of Malaysia.
The true civilization is where every man gives to every other every right that he claims for himself - Robert G. Ingersoll

Think Carefully ... before we take any new steps.... B'cos On the 25th.Nov last year most of our Brother and sister when for a peaceful gathering but they were torture , beaten by the tear gas, Water canon with Chemical water ....and much more ... I was there ......
By seeing the media and goverment works ,do you think they are favour and care for use and does not believe the true . They are findings ways to declare that rally is very bad and we were very violently... By sending roses to them , what does that mean...? like when you have some mis-understanding or fight with your girl friend , you try to please her back by sending flowers or others ,thus show that you are miss her and wants her to forgive you...
The same thing here .....That day in morning we were very calm and want to give a simply memorandum just b'cos each time we went to give them them did not attend to it..!And what they did, you all know.. There were thousand of people scarify them self and took part in but now by give them roses is like asking forgiveness from them .... what we being fighting for is down the drain and lost...This time they will laugh at us back and start again to marginalise us when they know that we will come back begging from them...! So Think carefully ,...!!!Your Future Is in Stake.......
