    Politics: ABU - Anything But UMNO!

    Anti-Umno group targets Malay heartland with viral video

    KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 15 – Frustrated by rural Malays’ poor access to alternative sources of news, an anti-Umno coalition has launched an online video it hopes will break Barisan Nasional’s (BN) media monopoly in key heartland areas.Jumping between archive photos and documentary footage, the 104-minute “DN Tumbangkan BN” video by Asalkan Bukan Umno (ABU) hopes to undercut Umno’s claim that it has always fought for Malaysians and the good of the country.

    ABU comprises the Socialist Party of Malaysia (PSM), Parti Rakyat Malaysia (PRM), Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia (SAMM) and the Malaysian Civil Liberties Movement (MCLM), among others.

    The central theme of the video is former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s alleged abuse of the New Economic Policy (NEP) to enrich cronies, which ABU claims not only resulted in persistent poverty but also worsening race relations.

    The NEP was introduced in 1971 following the bloody May 13, 1969 race riots to foster national unity by reducing the wealth gap between the races.

    “Had the aspirations of the New Economic Policy been carried out, Tunku Abdul Rahman’s hope that Malaysia remain a democratic, independent nation based on freedom and justice... would have been realised long ago,” said the video’s narrator.

    “Unfortunately, the Umno-BN government, beginning with the leadership of Dr Mahathir Mohamad from 1981 until now, has abandoned the principles of the Rukunegara and played up racial and religious sentiment to ensure the people are not united so they can remain in power.”

    It also slammed Dr Mahathir – “the world’s biggest liar” – for allegedly undermining key national institutions to stay in power, presenting as proof the chain of events which began with the deregistration of Umno in 1988 following fractious party polls.

    But the video also struck a more positive note amid the Umno-bashing, highlighting the alternative vision for Malaysia held by leftist political parties which fought for Malaysia’s independence from Britain in the 1940s and 1950s.

    It noted that such groups, including the Malay Nationalist Party (PKMM) and Malayan Democratic Union (MDU), had worked together politically for a race-blind Malaysia even before BN’s predecessor, the Alliance, was formed.

    “The unity we talked about never mentioned race, as is emphasised nowadays. All we wanted was that all the trade unions, all the workers, all the women, all the organisations should join in a broad front to oppose the return of the (British) Governor to rule the country,” MDU founding member Lim Kean Chye said.

    Special attention was paid to the All-Malaya Hartal of 1948, which MCLM president Haris Ibrahim described as “the most graphic evidence” that Malaysians of different races have always been able to cooperate.

    “It’s amazing that they managed, even then without internet, to pull off something on that scale. We’ve never had a race relations problem in this country. It’s just Umno and its sidekicks,” he told The Malaysian Insider.

    ABU will kick off its campaign to disseminate the video among rural Malay voters at Kolej Universiti Islam Zulkifli Muhammad (KUIZM) in Gombak tonight.

    According to Haris’s website, the group has already distributed some 200,000 hard copies of the video in villages in the past month alone.

    Taking the DNBN Kuburkan BN initiative to the Malay heartlands


    Posted on December 15, 2011

    Over the last one month, in a stealth exercise, more than 200,000 copies of aDNBN KUBURKAN BN DI PRU13documentary have been distributed to our Pakcik2, Makcik2 and Adik2 in the kampungs throughout Malaya.

    For some time now, we have realised that even as many of us are able to get at the truth as to what is happening in our country, our brothers and sisters in the Malay heartlands, on a daily basis, are fed doses and doses of lies, fear mongering, divisive reports and hate rhetoric by the main stream media.

    With a view to countering this, over the last 7 months, a team has worked to put together a video documentary to deliver a message to the kampungs : that if we are to save this nation, UMNO and BN must be removed from Putrajaya nad buried.

    After much brainstorming, we felt that, if nothing else, it was imperative that the following 3 messages reach the Malays in the kampung.

    Firstly, and most importantly, that UMNO’s sloganeering of ‘Ketuanan Melayu’ is unIslamic, as Islam does not countenance any notions or race supremacy or discrimination on grounds of race or ethnicity.

    Secondly, that over the last 30 – 35 years, on the pretext of working to help the impoverished Malays, UMNO has hijacked the New Economic Policy (NEP) to enrich its own leaders and their cronies, leaving some 40% f the population living in poverty today.

    Finally, that contrary to UMNO’s claims, UMNO was not the party that fought for independence from the British and that, to this date, by constantly playing up manufactured race and religion issues, UMNO endeavours to keep the people colonised and enslaved whilst they hijack the national wealth.

    The DNBN KUBURKAN BN DI PRU13 documentary, which is about an hour and 44 minutes long, is, in its content, most complementary of the ASALKAN BUKAN umno initiative to be lauched later tonight.
    The documentary has, this morning, been broken into 6 parts and uploaded onto Youtube with two objects in mind.

    First, to enable all of you to view the same.

    More importantly, to enable all of you to play an important role in taking this message out to the kampungs.

    Please help to download all 6 parts, burn them on DVDs and take them out to your Malay friends, colleagues and relatives.

    If each of you would undertake to burn and distribute 100 DVDs, particularly to people in the kampung, we would stand a fighting chance of bringing UMNO and BN to their knees.

    We hope you will find the documentary informative.

      I will do that, Haris…
      But it would be helpful if it is all well burned into a Master VCD which idiot like us can duplicate easily. I feel it should be a continuous video instead of track selection like a DVD.
      I just hope that it will just play instantly once inserted into a player instead of maneuvering here and there.
      Thanks for the hard work.

        Yeah, that’s a good idea. Make an iso image of a DVD of it and upload it to an online hosting site so people can just download it and burn it straight away without having to fumble over anything else. VCDs only allow a max of 80 minutes of video though so it wont fit, and you will need a DVD (120min max).

      Please upload to other file sharing sites such as bittorrent, rapidshare etc. sometimes it is not easy to download Youtube Videos. Best would be a DVD image file. that way can burn straight to DVD, easier for the technologically less inclined.

      I tried to click on the 2nd and subsequent videos but it says an error occured. Is censorship coming into play? Please post the .torrent file for us to download since we have Unifi, P1 Wimax and other high speed internet links at home now!

      Haris,
      Any option for folks to help sponsor some of the CD/DVDs?
      Perhaps a bank account to deposit money into?

      Bro, I was looking for something like this.
      Could you give us a download link to an ISO Image file that we can burn.
      In addition to this can you pass me the Powerpoint slide of your presentation “Nation In Distress” with the script. I’d like to put it up in Articulate format for all to see.

      Excellent and kudos to all behind this initiative. God Bless You.
      For those who are giving suggestions about making it simpler to play for all, just do whatever YOU can to make that happen. If it means making a master DVD, make a master DVD, if it means sharing it on file-sharing sites, share it on as many as you know, if it is to be a DVD image file, make a DVD image file. You get the drift?
      The MAIN idea is to get the message across to as many people as possible, the message is in your hands now, use whatever means at your disposal.

      Yes… give more options to download and copy. VCD or DVD image file best. Then upload to file sharing sites. Also make sure all video sharing sites are covered – not only YouTube. How about sharing on FaceBook… Twitter etc?

      I am a Malaysian living and working abroad. I like your proactive approach (T-Shirts & Video) in bringing down the serial corrupt ruling elite. Are there ways to donate to your cause.

      Mr Haris,
      Rest assured, I will inform my peers and have them assist in further disseminating these ‘videos of awakening’ to other people by far and large.
      Please keep up this commendable and incredible leadership of yours. I strongly believe educated, rational, and caring Malaysians who wish to see a better Malaysia are firmly behind you.
      Thank you for leading us in the effort to save the rakyat from the clutches of the corrupted, defiled, and warped.
      God bless you.
      Regards,
      Jo
