Starting them young: facing their enemy
This is their enemy: the people
Aunty Bersih, Ann Ooi, is also their enemy
Come on, Shahrir. You do know right from wrong
Guardians of the kleptocrats: the boys in blue uniforms
A police state proud of its repression
A DAY IN THE LIFE
On an outstation coach, a Malay voice cuts over the pop songs on Suria. Dia di balai it says. A few minutes later, uppercaise followed by New Straits Times. The pop songs continue. No more voice overs, or if any, they went unnoticed. Near journey’s end, Tamat then Selamat. A woman in sunglasses glares steadily. Outside town two hours later, WPP 1208 seemingly on routine ronda drives slowly past, just after a woman in the neighbourhood has brought out a large Alsatian on a leash. Pausing at the junction at the end of the street, the driver raises his right hand in a casual wave. WPP 1208 also wants to be noticed for their part in everyday repression.
