Attacks on UMNO increasing at an alarming rate

UMNO comes under attack from students

About 500 protestors, mostly students, marched to Umno's headquarters in Kuala Lumpur today in a lively protest demanding greater academic freedom.

The students took part in a march and handed over two memoranda to Suhakam and the Government, demanding, among others, the abolition of the controversial University and University Colleges Act (UUCA).
Solidariti Mahasiswa Malaysia (SMM) chairman Ahmad Syukri Abdul Razab, who led the procession yesterday, said the students wanted to send a message to the Government that they would not put up with restrictions to academic freedom that had been “worsening of late”.

“Lecturers have even been restricted from voicing out academic views. This Act also restricts students from involving themselves in the country's democratic system,” he claimed, adding that around 500 students from all over the country had participated in the rally.

They marched from Suhakam's office at Jalan Sultan Ismail to the Umno headquarters at Menara Datuk Onn where they handed over the second memorandum to Deputy Higher Education Minister Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah at about 4pm.

Police aided the movement by helping to direct traffic and clear the way for the march.

Ahmad Syukri praised the actions of the police, saying it showed Malaysians were mature enough to hold peaceful street demonstrations.

The students also lowered a flag bearing the Prime Minister's image at Menara Datuk Onn and raised the SMM flag during the afternoon protest.

Ahmad Syukri said the memoranda contained six demands, including abolishing the UUCA, Educational Institutions (Discipline) Act 1976 (Act 174) and Private Higher Educational Institutions Act 1996 (Act 555); allowing university students the freedom to speak out and manage campus elections, societies and activities; and to participate in politics.

It is Corrupt As Usual in UMNO

Senior Minister unabashedly proud of family's corrupted reputation in General Assembly

UMNO's General Assembly got up to speed when Minister Shahrizat blatantly showed off her family's prowess at gaining the upper hand in obtaining government handouts.  It was "business as usual" as UMNO members applauded Shshrizat's tenacity and gung-ho attitude in what many will see as typical UMNO arrogance, pride and the "I deserve it" attitude in obtaining handouts from a government under their control.

"I need the condos for my cows"

Don't challenge my right to riches, ok? 

Worse still, almost 99.99% of UMNO members think there’s nothing wrong with the RM250 million scandal which saw the taxpayers money were used instead to purchase luxury condo, overseas trips, plots of land, half a million ringgit Mercedes Benz CLS 350 CGI and whatnot.

Instead what was seen was envy of Shahrizat’s new found fortune, whereby the delegates from UMNO Wanita OPENLY urged Najib administration to allocate (more like giveaway) projects to the women wing as well!

"The latest RM250 million NFC Cowgate scandal was awarded to Shahrizat’s family, led by her husband and three children, all of whom know nuts about cattle-rearing except eating beef-satay. It’s amusing that Shahrizat shamelessly, proudly and arrogantly declare that her family deserves it because they were hard-working. " But then, this is UMNO and in UMNO you have to show off what you reap from the rakyat.

And in this Bolehland it is indeed laughable to see the problem being passed on from the Auditor General which first discovered the crime, to MACC who refused to investigate a senior minister and passed the buck to the Police which of course will prescribe the usual "no evidence found" solution! And now in this General Assembly the perpetrator tries to blame everyone else while her boss (another cow - Moohyiddin) tries to defend her to protect his own crimes.
