No, not Barisan Nasional, but the Barisan Rakyat. For so long, we have had to put up with the lies and abuse of those in power, who used this power to stifle the people’s views. The Barisan Rakyat consists of 6 political parties who has endorsed a declaration called “The People’s Declaration”.
The People’s Declaration was drafted by the civil society movement, and it’s contents can be found here (Mandarin and Malay versions available as well). The 6 parties that have endorsed this declaration are:
*Note: Barisan Nasional parties were given a chance to endorse the People’s Declaration but there was no response.
If any of these parties above are contesting in your constituency this 12th General Election, and if you believe in the People’s Declaration, then use your vote to decide. Click here for the launching of the Barisan Rakyat last Saturday. Pics here.
The People’s Declaration is a document that inspires hope for the well-being of this country, and I believe it is time to return the power to the people.
The country belongs to the people, not politicians. It’s time to make it a reality come March 8th 2008.
Hidup Barisan Rakyat! Undi Barisan Rakyat!
