Occupy Dataran

Occupy Dataran is an autonomous grassroots movement based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, that aims to create a platform to experiment participatory democracy based on the popular assembly model. The Malaysian Insider reported that Occupy Dataran were an offshoot of Occupy Wall Street. The online news portal also reported that the Malaysian protesters were expressing solidarity with the New York protest movement as part of the 15 October 2011 global protests. However, it is widely acknowledged that the first Occupy Dataran assembly was held on 30 July 2011, seven weeks before Occupy Wall Street. - Wikipedia

The movement says that it aims to "redefine democratic participation beyond representative democracy, and imagine a new political culture beyond race, ideology and political affiliation". Besides this, it is also for people to get together, hang out, organize activities & spend the night at Dataran Merdeka. Participants of Occupy Dataran have gathered every Saturday from 8pm - 6am at Dataran Merdeka. Part of Occupy Dataran is the "KL People's Assembly" where participants gather to share ideas, address problems, explore alternatives, propose solutions and make decisions. It is also open to other activities. - Wikipedia

Since October 2011, the movement has spread to Penang with Occupy Penang and other new occupations in Kota Bharu, Johor Bahru, Shah Alam, Petaling Jaya, Dungun and Batu Pahat.  - Wikipedia

An imbecile royal bloodline once said that the ‘Tahrir Square’ like uprising will never happen in Malaysia. Well it already has on the 9th of July last year. The ‘Occupy Dataran” and the upcoming Bersih 3.0 will be another kick below the belt, at least to this imbecile. All the buying and dealing of the corrupted ruling leaders are coming to end, not only in Malaysia but all over the world.

It is no different than ‘Occupy Wallstreet’ where the main issues are social and economic inequality, greed, corruption and the undue influence of corporations on government—particularly from the financial services sector. The slogan, we are the 99%, addresses the growing income inequality and wealth distribution in the U.S. between the wealthiest 1% and the rest of the population. Protesters engage in "direct action" with consensus-based decisions through a general assembly of participants instead of petitioning authorities. - Wikipedia

Democracy as we know it has gone absolutely bonkers, taken over by demagogue leaders into Ghetto Physics.

  1. My dear friends, we love you so very much.
    Today we wish to speak to you on the topic of relationships. All relationships whether the ones with your life, your home, your spouse, your children, or your pet, are teaching you about the relationship you have with yourself. The relationships with others show you very clearly what parts of yourself you are willing to bring to the surface in your life and what parts of yourself you are willing to let go. For in truth, dear ones, all energies exist within you and you choose which ones you want to experience.

  2. What we need rather, is for humanity to come together and form a wholly new global politico-economic system, founded on ethical principles and with an international system of justice. Sovereignty belongs to all individuals, not to states or governments or corporations or the very rich.

  5. The students have made huge sacrifice to uphold what they think is their right. And here we are sidestepping them to give way for what? A Royal Concert? An event where people lose themselves in songs and entertainment? An event where, at the end of it serves next to nothing in terms of benefit to the people who attended it and to the nation? Yes, we all respect the Royal institution but truth be told the fight for freedom and individual right in a democratic society should be given equal, if not more attention. Personally, it saddens me that such sacrifices by our future generation can easily be brushed aside like that. Yes, pitted against the general backdrop they may just be a handful of 'rebels' who dare use unconventional means to voice out their opinions but, they nonetheless represent the voice of their generation, majority of which sadly prefer to act in conformity. This is why the Royal institution is increasingly becoming a joke and continue to lose respect.

  6. From the day we were born, we were made prisoner, trapped in the game. The journey starts from nature and nurture, to get education, get a job and pay the bills. Whether is Barisan, Keadilan, PAS or DAP we are living and working like machines of these Mafia’s in suits. Says who we have a life, try skipping work. Since we are “fcuked” for life, may as well vote for the less damaging Mafias.

    To the fcuknig Governments of the world, MAY GOD FCUK YOU!

  14. WE THE RAKYAT SALUTE THE ORGANISER OF BERSIH 3.0. IT IS AMAZING TO SEE PEOPLE OF ALL RACES, DIFFERENT FAITHS COMING TOGETHER TO SIT IN FOR A COMMON CAUSE. WE ARE TRULY BANGSA MALAYSIA UNLIKE THE EVIL UMNO/BN REGIME WHO IS ALWAY DIVIDING THE RACES AND RELIGIONS. THE LATEST VICTIM ARE THE CHRISTIANS WHOM THEY ACCUSED OF WANTING TO MAKE CHRISTIANITY THE NATIONAL RELIGION AND WANTING A CHRISTIAN TO BE THE PRIME MINISTER. WHEN THESE ACCUSATIONS DOES NOT STICK THEY ARE NOW PUSHING HARD THAT THE CHRISTIANS ARE GOING AGAINST THE LAW BY PROSELYTISING THE MALAYS TO CHRISTIANITY. THIS IS CERTAINLY TOO FAR FETCH BUT UMNO IS BENT ON CREATING TENSION AMONG THE RAKYAT, THAT'S THE EVIL SCHEME OF UMNO.
