《自由是。。。》

金枪大哥出了上段

自由 是阳光饱满的清晨
自由 是微风轻轻向我吻
自由 是每一刻都不必问
警察来鬼混 破费兼伤神

自由 是宽频尽速的快乐
自由 是喝杯冷啤来解渴
自由 是每一刻都不必吭
报纸没民声 博客官司恨

我回了:

解脱 是公道人心定收费
解脱 是天下太平无劫匪
解脱 是每一事都不言累
警员是傀儡 勇士心中悲 义士心生悲

解脱 是宽频竞争可公平
解脱 是喝杯水可以安宁
解脱 是每一事都不作悻
川流仍不息 官僚事照行

自由是解脱吗?说实在我也不知道算不算。这种太哲学的东西,非我这种哲学水平水皮的人所能了解。不过既然下半段都弄出来了,我也懒再改。

胡大哥金枪伊丽莎白黄上个星期日一起去了 IOI Mall 的游行。

游行前一个凌晨,正和羊人、双子、船夫,包括胡大哥在吃点心。胡大哥说这次游行应该会有动粗事件,会很危险。我听了反而蠢蠢欲动想看一看这一次的游行。

对于游行,可能是因为没有什么政治概念,我想来都不怎么赞成。也总是觉得在白费力气之余还会把事情越搞越混。我总觉得在桌上谈判会比游行有用,凡是都应该有解决的方法的。但是在几次的游行过后,我开始察觉政府的不理民情。用镇暴队拿来对付手无寸铁之人之事,也让我十分无法接受。

博客聚会那天我离家超过18小时,聚会回来还写博客,直到早上7时许才上床睡觉,确实是很累了。金枪12点多打电话来之余,我虽然已经被闹钟吵醒,但是还是十分不想下床,于是就说不去了。盖上电话后,却一直很犹豫,真不去了吗?脑袋很乱,心里有点不安,再也睡不下去了。

我也算精力旺盛之人,就算再累,也不可能看不了一场游行。还要去的话,马上打给金枪还来得及去的。

最后我不得不承认,我怯步了。我不是很想看见警察打人的场面。

犯罪率高,警察面对案子的态度就像庸医跟病人说:是这样的啦,吃两粒 panadol 就好,可以回去了。

可是面对手无寸铁的平民,收到上头指示后,竟然全副武装全神戒备,对付的是那些为人民争取公平待遇的人,包括那些也必须还 toll、还水费的镇暴队队员。那些赚钱的人还是继续的赚钱,不管外面闹得多大,似乎不损他们任何一根的汗毛。外面闹的,反正是低等的警员以及跟他们对立的人士。

是不是这样?说得没错吧?

博客越认越多,媒体朋友越来越多,每次游行,自己的朋友也在里面,难免开始关心。那天游行回来,胡、金枪都没事,伊丽莎白黄却挨打了,不懂伤势如何?羊人好像也是有去,没事吧?曾有一面之缘的立慷原来曾经戴上手铐被捕,不是因为杀人放火,是因为捍卫他人的基本权利。

同一片土地,我们曾,也将会继续博客。这么美好回忆,却和这种叫人心寒的事发生在一块儿。我有点错乱。

真的没有折衷的办法?

忘了跟谁说过,我想至少亲眼看一次游行。但是,始终还是不愿参加游行。

ps: 凌晨3点,我非睡不可了。但是胡、金两人竟然还在线上,为那天游行的 video 进行剪接工作。这是我看见的。我看不见的呢?我们什么时候才可以安稳的喝黑狗、老虎,或着睡个好觉?

    虽然我不懂其他的好方法,但我坚决认为这是个坏方法。

  • sam

    The point is, Frankie… each one of us got to do something if we want anything to end. What do you think people in the West enjoy so much freedom? The French took it to the streets and even had wars to end the cruel dictatorship about 200+ years ago. Martin Luther King did his non-violent campaign against racism, the movement met with great violents from the whites and he was assasinated. But if he did nothing, the African Americans would not enjoy their rights as US citizens today.

    The people have the right to assemble as guaranteed by our constitution. Freedom is not a “free” item, and history shows that, again and again, the one in power will not “give” freedom to the people without any sort of ‘bargaining’ process. Freedom has to be earned, and in some cases, fought.

  • frankie

    First of all, I don’t think people in the West enjoy so much freedom? Do you really think so? Secondly, do you think by doing such action, the toll fee won’t be increase again? As what you said “to end”?

    I strongly agree that the government has too many areas to improve and should cancel any unfair policy. However, I also strongly disagree to any action that will lead to violent.

  • sam

    We got to look at the bigger picture. It is not about toll hike only. Social movement for a better system is a collection of small things (from soft soft tokok at kopitiam to big demonstration) all over the place. The French Revolotion took decades to brew and took decades to happen to form a better republic (not perfect but better than our system). It took the Brits decades after the Industrial Revolution to realise that they are being screw by the industrialists and fought for their rights. Minimum wage, May 1st public holiday and non-discrinimatory employment policies came much later… All these things that the people there enjoys now is hard work of many generations before them. Do we have minimum wage here? No. Do we have anti-trust law here? No. We are like 2 hundred years behind man… It is impossible to have 21st century infrastructure to co-exist with old thinking and laws.

    And who is acting violent here? The police. I don’t think I need to say more about them. And don’t forget, the police will only turn violent to certain party. For some parties, the police would help them. Well, our newspapers are not printing those news. Heard of PPPA?

  • frankie

    I know we should learn from past, but not all the things from the west and from the past that we should follow. No doubt that they have come from a hard way to reach current so call “freedom”.

    In my opinion, demonstration is not a wise action to raise attention. This will only “lead” to anger and violent. I’m sure in our generation, we has been influnce d so much by the western thinking (not sure is this another way for them to control the world).

    By the way, I understand the frustration of the people where they has been stopped to tell the truth. I hope there is other way other than demonstration.

  • suayhwa

    my humble opinion is that if the violence during the demonstration was caused by the demonstrators, then we should condemn the demonstrators and support the police to take any necessary and appropriate action to stop them.

    however, if at any time, the demonstration was going on peacefully without any violence, then the police should not arrest and/or hurt anyone.

    if the demonstration is just one of the ways to express our thoughts and feelings peacefully, shouldn’t it be allowed? if it was actually the police who caused the violence, who should we condemn?

  • suayhwa

    幽子,你和羊人是同学吗?

  • twilight

    to frankie,

    Of course you can have your stand, but think twice and think wisely, There are thousands upon thousands of people who cannot afford to pay for the toll hike, as well as for oil price hike.

    And I don’t think demonstration by Anti-toll Price Hike will lead to violence. As Sam said, we have the right to assemble. We must fight for your own freedom, not begging.

    Last not the least, as son of Malaysia, we have to put on effort to build this country. May be you have a better idea to put Malaysia in brighter future, and we shall work on it together!

    oh.. now I know. Frankie beh song the ang mo. So cannot use ang moexamples. Ok. How about Ghandi? Or pehaps a Chinese? Oh… Why didn’t I thought of the Koreans! Isn’t Frankie an ang mo name? I rest my case here. 😉

  • frankie

    haha…interesting.
    I still don’t get the point on what is the benefit to have demonstration.
    As I said “虽然我不懂其他的好方法,但我坚决认为这是个坏方法。”

    If you said Taiwan recent demonstration is a good example. Honestly tell you, I see it as a comedy.

    By the way, what is PPPA?

  • frankie

    PPPA = 出版法令?
    这个我有话说。写完了在通知你。

  • sam

    福兰奇,你怎看人,人怎看你咯!

    PPPA 是什么?看这里便知道:

  • suayhwa

    frankie,
    maybe you can share with us why you think that peaceful demonstration is a ‘坏方法’? is that because some violence happened during/after the demonstration? if this was the reason, then i think we should find out who was the culprit to cause the violence.

  • frankie

    sam,
    谢谢了。我已到那儿留言。

    suayhwa,
    As I have stated in my previous comment “This will only “lead” to anger and violent.”. Lets think about it in this way, one day your father tell you that you are not allowed to go out anymore, and in protect your right, you stop eating, stop talking to all the family member and what other peaceful actions that you could think of. What is the output? Anger right?

  • suayhwa

    Frankie,
    i’ll find out from him the reason why im not allowed to go out anymore. if that was reasonable (maybe dangerous maybe i need to study etc etc), then fine. however if i was not allowed to go out without any reason from him, then what do you think i should do? im already adult, do you think my dad should treat me in this way like a kid?

    then i should explain to him that by going out from the house, i wont hurt anyone. im going out peacefully. i dont need to stop eating, stop talking. i just need to show that im going out, and without hurting anyone.

    is that what we should do?

  • frankie

    suayhwa,
    Well, seem like we are having different mindset on solving problem. The most important thing is we all aware the situation we are in now. And, we are on our own way to create awareness to the public.

    However, I still would like to emphasize my stand where I object any aggressive action such as demonstration. I don’t wish to see our next generation in the future, act like the youth in South Kerea who tends to bring unresolved problem to the street.

    Anyway, thanks for discussion here. Lets move on for the brighter future.
