Kedua, air banjir besar yang turun dari Kedah dan menyebabkan air naik 3 kaki sungguhpun tidak ada hujan di kawasan Seberang Perai selepas 4-5 November 2017. Ketiga, dalam masa yang sama telah berlaku angin kencang yang tidak pernah dilihat di Malaysia, sampai 40 batu sejam sehingga feri boleh ditolak ke darat atas jeti konkrit.

A Democratic, Progressive And Prosperous Malaysia For The Many (e/m/c)

Speech by DAP Secretary General Lim Guan Eng at the DAP National Special Congress on 12 November 2017 at the IDCC Shah Alam, Selangor

Preamble

We, the DAP national delegates, gather here today for our National Special Congress as requested by the Registrar of Societies (ROS) to hold a fresh election for the Central Executive Committee members, once again. We had earlier decided to accept the instructions by the ROS, under protest.

Since the last National Conference on 4th December 2016, we lost two of DAP’s most important national leaders, the former Secretary-General and my university mate Sdr. Kerk Kim Hock and the former Perak Chairman and one of the earliest DAP members Sdr. Lau Dak Kee. Both of them were detained under the Internal Security Act during the Ops Lalang in 1987. Let us pay tribute to Sdr Kerk and Lau for their contributions to the Party and to Malaysia, especially during difficult dark years.

Darurat akan disytiharkan oleh kerajaan negeri sekiranya dianggap perlu selepas perundingan dan nasihat daripada kerajaan Persekutuan(m/c)

Kenyataan Akhbar Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang Lim Guan Eng Pada 5 November 2017 Di Komtar, George Town.

Tidak perlu untuk Kerajaan Negeri Pulau Pinang untuk mengisytiharkan keadaan darurat bencana kerana keadaan buat masa ini adalah terkawal selepas wujudnya kerjasama dan bantuan daripada kerajaan Persekutuan untuk menangani bencana ribut kencang dan banjir yang paling teruk dalam sejarah Pulau Pinang. Darurat akan disytiharkan oleh kerajaan negeri sekiranya dianggap perlu selepas perundingan dan nasihat daripada kerajaan Persekutuan.

Kerajaan negeri harap semua majikan boleh memberikan kelonggaran kepada pekerja mereka dengan memberikan masa untuk jalankan kerja pembersihan dan pembaikan semula atas hartanah mereka.

30th Anniversary of Ops Lalang: The Struggle Against Repressive Legislation Continues (e/c)

Press Statement by DAP Secretary-General and MP for Bagan Lim Guan Eng in Kuala Lumpur on 27.10.2017

30th Anniversary of Ops Lalang: The Struggle Against Repressive Legislation Continues

Today is the 30th anniversary of one of the darkest episodes of modern Malaysian history, the Operasi Lalang arrest and detention of 106 people including NGO activists, politicians and academics under the draconian Internal Security Act 1960 (ISA) on 27 October 1987. At the same time, media freedom was curtailed when the newspaper licenses of The Star, Sin Chew Jit Poh and Watan were revoked.

As the first to be detained and the last released under Operasi Lalang, I have constantly reminded myself that we must never give up the struggle to free Malaysia from political persecution and repressive legislation. Although it has been 30 years since Operasi Lalang, which was the second largest ISA crackdown since the 13 May riots in 1969, our nation continues to be tormented by similar draconian laws that suppress our fundamental liberties. We therefore cannot afford to give up, because if we do then tyranny and oppression will win.

槟州首席部长特别拨款-槟华国民型华文中学

张盛闻不要再自欺欺人,说华小的拨款有增加,实际上是华小的发展拨款被卡住。对华小而言,行政开销固然重要,但是最重要的还是要有发展基金,这样华小才能发扬光大,而不是让华小自生自灭。华小华校都需要发展基金 !

大家中午好!槟华女中所培育的精英,走出校园后在世界各个角落绽放异彩,而单单在州政府或旗下机构服务的槟华杰出校友就有双溪槟榔区州议员YB林秀琴、乔治市世界遗产机构总经理洪敏芝,我的机要秘书法利拉和新闻秘书张燕芬,还有珍珠快讯的锐嫔和丽萍, 她们都是槟华优秀的校友,目前为州内子民服务。 Continue reading ‘槟州首席部长特别拨款-槟华国民型华文中学’

首相纳吉应该一箭双雕,批准将吉打一间已没有学生报读并已关闭、但办校准证依然生效的培才华小,迁校至槟城新的人口密集区

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2017年10月24日在吉隆坡发表的声明:

首相纳吉应该一箭双雕,批准将吉打一间已没有学生报读并已关闭、但办校准证依然生效的培才华小,迁校至槟城新的人口密集区,让濒临关闭的华小得以延续教育下一代的使命;同时让新住宅区的学子有学校可以读,进而实践他所标榜的“华小一间也不能少”诺言。

首相拿督斯里纳吉自喻自己出任教育部长时保住了全国华校不被关闭,还说他是拨款给华小最多的首相,更放弃了赋予部长关闭华校的权力,那为何教育部不批准让因无新生而停止运作的吉中成杰培才华小迁校到槟城呢? Continue reading ‘首相纳吉应该一箭双雕,批准将吉打一间已没有学生报读并已关闭、但办校准证依然生效的培才华小,迁校至槟城新的人口密集区’

马华大事做不了、小事做不好,就是华教被剥削和剥夺的主因。

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2017年10月20日在吉隆坡发表文告:

马华大事做不了、小事做不好,就是华教被剥削和剥夺的主因。巫青团长凯里表明支持单一源流教育,马华没谴责凯里的极端言论,却反过来谴责我,还提醒华社回顾马华在大马独立时争取华教体制的功劳,马华为了官职果然连母语前途都可以出卖。
