A message from Farida Jivamala Ibrahim to come for Sunday’s Hormati Suara Rakyat Selangor rally at the Kelana Jaya Stadium, from 4pm.

Hi Everyone,

The number of people turning up for Sunday’s rally (details below) is crucial, otherwise we, the rakyat, will not be taken seriously.

Small numbers would give  the government the excuse to pronounce that the majority of Selangorians stayed home because they approve of Khusrin becoming the new Selangor State Secretary.

Let’s do our duty for love of our State, its future and ours.

We need to be at least 10,000 strong at the stadium. But why stop there?  Why not more? Weren’t there 40,000 of us at the Bersih Rally March to the Palace?

We need an estimated head count early, so please email me ASAP at [email protected] to confirm you are attending, and also how many you are bringing with you.

Selangor needs you.

God bless,


Pretender Khusrin? @ selangorkini

Hormati Suara Rakyat Selangor

Civil Societies and Selangorians to hold a public rally to pressure the Chief Secretary to declare Khusrin’s appointment null and void.

Civil society groups and Selangorians have come together to form a rakyat initiated effort called Hormati Suara Rakyat Selangor (HSRS) to demonstrate their disappointment and anger over the appointment of Datuk Mohd Khusrin Munawi as the new Selangor State Secretary.

This group, formed on 11 January 2011, will soon hold a public rally to pressure the Chief Secretary to the Barisan Nasional (BN) federal government, Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Haji Hassan, to declare Khusrin’s appointment null and void.

At least 10,000 people are expected to participate in this public rally.

The HSRS public rally details are as follows:

Date: 23 January 2011 (Sunday)

Time: 4 pm to 7 pm

Venue: Kelana Jaya Stadium

Khusrin’s appointment is a culmination of the relentless attempts by the BN federal government to frustrate the Selangor Administration in carrying out their policies and programmes.

The fact is Selangor Menteri Besar (MB) Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim did not receive the recommended list from the Public Services Department. Since this have been revealed, it is only imperative that Sidek declare the appointment of Khusrin as null and void, as due process and convention was not followed.

The rakyat in Selangor deserve the right to expect their elected Pakatan Rakyat Selangor State Government to provide the best services. By denying the MB the choice of the top civil servant, the rakyat in Selangor are also denied their rights.

HSRS’s maiden effort in organising this rally is to get the rakyat to come together to voice their dissatisfaction on the current state of affairs and to show the many instances where the Pakatan Selangor Government policy implementation has been sabotaged by civil servants still loyal to their previous political masters.

At the rally, we will highlight the many instances where local issues for residents could not be resolved due the non-cooperation of the BN federal agencies such as Public Works Department (JKR), police, Syabas, Social Welfare Department (Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarat) and the Housing and Local Government Ministry.

The issues that will be raised include the following:

  • Deserving individuals and groups not receiving welfare / aids services and allocations.
  • Ignoring measures to relief traffic congestion proposed by civil societies.
  • Abandoned housing projects.
  • Rejection of local government proposal to provide auxiliary police personnel to provide security for Selangorians and reduce crime.
  • Water coupons meant for low-cost flats and high-rise housing not reaching their intended residents.
  • Arbitrary demolition of traders and hawkers stalls and places of business.

The following groups form HSRS:

  • BERSIH 2.0 — a coalition comprising civil society organisations with the objective of campaigning for clean and fair elections in Malaysia.
  • JERIT (Jaringan Rakyat Tertindas) — Oppressed People’s Network.
  • SABM (Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia) — a group committed to actualising the spirit and substance of Anak Bangsa Malaysia — “One People, One Nation”.
  • CONPAC — Coalition of NGO and Professional Councillors comprising councillors from all 12 local authorities in Selangor who are not members of any political parties and make up 25% of councillors.
  • CGG — The Coalition for Good Governance comprising 55 NGOs involved in a wide spectrum of social justice issues.
  • Malaysians for Teoh Beng Hock — a coalition of 52 groups echoing the call by Teoh’s family for a Royal Commission of Inquiry.
  • HAKAM — national human rights organisation.
  • GEL — Growing Emerging Leaders consisting of a group of young people who study ways to apply leadership and faith-based principles in day-to-day living.
  • JIM (Pertubuhan Jamaah Islah Malaysia) — a Muslim-based group promoting development and peace.
  • Civil Rights Committee, Kuala Lumpur & Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall.
  • LLG Cultural Development Centre Bhd — A non-profit organisation dedicated to uphold the principles of democracy, human rights and respect for individualities and ethnic diversities.
  • Malaysian Civil Liberties Movement (MCLM) — a group taking the lead role in realising our forefathers’ aspirations and encouraging the wider participation of civil society in shaping the future of our nation.
