Of Good News

I just got an e-mail from Sing Yee informing that GMI managed to get to the final round for the Civil Society Award which is to be held on 28th August 2008. Every one is happy to hear this news. Last Wednesday we had a meeting to discuss on our future campaign programs. Good things seem to happen gradually and we couldn't get happier :P. it's always good to know that there are many concerned individuals and organizations that step forward and offer their relentless support.

There has been a proposal from an organization to set up an education fund for the children of ISA detainees. We were also surprised by a donation made by Harakah Daily to GMI. According to them, the donation sum was rather small "sumbangan kecil saja".but i guess it's so not "sumbangan kecil" the moment we learned that the donation sum was RM30,000. Every one was happy to hear the news because two weeks before, during our meeting, we were so worried about our financial standing as it was in dire straits.

At the last meeting, we also had a guest from Amnesty International London, joining us to discuss on future effort to expand the campaign into international scene. that indicates more effort needs to be done to get the campaign going, both, at national and international level. GMI's plate would be spilled over with many plans, but the good thing is, no one is complaining. The road is long, but as long as you have people to walk with you, the distance does not really matter anymore.

Fad to Anaifa,

i HONESTLY and TRULY believe that ISA does not bring any good. not even an iota of it. there is a fine line between justice and injustice, lies and truth, good and bad, there's nothing in between these virtues and vices.

what is lawful is clear, and but is unlawful is clear.God makes this clear that human conscience can verify its truth.
