T-shirts: free and unfree

T-shirts: free and unfree By Zunar

    The symbolism of Datuk T being “free” in sharp contrast to Bersih’s yellow teeshirts being locked up and not free by Zunar’s cartoon is also, from another angle, a powerful symbolism of one man’s predicament: he is being maligned by Datuk T’s freedom to introduce collateral “expert” evidence from US in a court trial without an equal opportunity to bring his own experts to contradict the damning so called evidence. The same man also faces every legal avenue being deployed by the State against him and an inability to get reprieve from all available institutional channels stacked against him.

    The only other reprieve via peoples power in circumvention of these blocked institutional channels is now fast fading as an option when Bersih backs down its resolve to march upon the exhortation of HRH the King. The symbolism of Bersih’s yellow teeshirts being locked up and not free applies very personally to his situation.

    What do you do in a country where the Police and the Judiciary are in cahoots with UMNO, and then the Home Minister comes out openly with a straight face and proclaims “Nope, we do not practice favouritism in this country”.

    What do you do when a few hundred Mamaks demonstrate violently in Penang, and they did so with the assistance of the Police, and a few hundred mat rempits surrounded PKR headquarters threatening to burn down the building ? Then Utusan come out and labels the Bersih supporters as “mat rempits”.

    Is the rakyat really that stupid to be taken in by these criminals ? Do the rural people really believe in these sandiwara and blatant lies ?

    If bersih was allowed, it would proceed for one day only (it may even end after half a day) with some publicity a short while before as well as after the event.

    Now umno messed up the whole thing. The bersih event is being dragged by umno into one long drawn out matter. The bersih movement changed from a simple one day affair into one that would in all probability last until the coming general election with loads of publicity given to the event.
