This is a picture of Perak’s legitimate Speaker, V. Sivakumar being dragged out like an animal by unidentified thugs at the ‘august’ State Assembly Hall on May 7, 2009. It is clear that UMNO/Barisan has perverted every institution and every value we hold dear so it can hold on to power.
If they can physically evict a legally elected and appointed Speaker of the highest lawmaking body of the State in such a demeaning, humiliating and disgusting manner, do you think they give a rat’s ass for ordinary people like you and me???
The utter disgrace of May 7, 2009 is the greatest manifestation yet that UMNO, would resort to any tactic, perform any dastardly act, break any law, destroy any institution, to retain the reins of power.
Remember these pictures and remember it well when it comes to voting whether in the by-elections, GE 13 or on any election for that matter. The choice is yours people – true democracy or a revoltingly sham one.
