Defiance in the Face of Oppression

Grand Saga laid the foundations of the intended barricades in the wee hours of 9/5/2008, right after the assault of FRU on Mahkota Cheras/Sg Long. Later, some brave souls bulldozed the foundations and repaved the road. At around midnight of the same day, I was driving back from Choice 83, I decided to stop by at the fly over to have a look see of how's the situation. These are the scenes that greeted me:

The people were holding a candlelight vigil in the face of anarchy. Defiant in the face of oppression. Yes, enough is enough. 3 years of exploitation is enough. It definitely have to end.

Looking at the crowd, you will not believe that these were the people that were sprayed and gassed yesterday. The message is clear, you build it, we will mow it down. Enough is enough.

I am sure that this is not the end that we will hear from Grand Saga or their private army, the FRU. But we will stand fast in the face of oppression and fight for our rights in the face of exploitation.

The flame of justice will flicker on in the face of adversity. You'll Never Walk Alone.
