No longer afraid of being penalised by BN, about 30 headmen from Selangau boldly joined hands with PKR leaders at a momentous event last Saturday to erect a permanent monument as remembrance of the native land ownership tradition.
PKR Sarawak chief Baru Bian describes the ‘Kebangkitan Rakyat’ as yet another positive sign of change sweeping across Sarawak as preparation for GE13 heats up.
On the replacement of thousands of workers with foreign labours by the SCORE project, Baru reckons that it is an early sign of failure of the much-touted industrialisation scheme, a symptom of poor governance of a BN regime that has lost touch with the peoples’ aspiration.
Joshua Jabeng, potential candidate for Selangau weighs in on the significance of the NCR monument followed by NCR fighter Semawi of Ulu Dijih who tells us that more and more voters are warming up to Pakatan Rakyat people-friendly policies.
Last but not least, we get the lowdown of the questionable arrest of NCR activist Matek ak Geram and his 60-year-old brother last week. The arrest, like numerous others, strengthens Matek’s resolve to oppose state-endorsed land grab.
