Fighting apathy

There has been a lot of scum and dirt surfacing in the Malaysian political scene in recent years.

It makes me sick to my stomach to read of atrocities and injustice such as the Lina Joy case, the Teoh Beng Hock tragedy, and the Altantuya murder. These stories all make me want to laugh and cry at the same time.

I don’t know if you are aware or even care about all this. It’s easier to remain apathetic. I know that’s often the case for me. So I make an effort to stay up to date with all that’s happening back ‘home’ as much as I can… lest I forget.

If you are someone who is at all interested in this, here’s something new i recently came across: an exposé on the blatant corruption of the Taib family in Sarawak

It talks about the sad plight the people of Sarawak who had to watch helplessly as their beautiful forests were plundered to feed one man’s greed.

This is just scratching the surface. There are many more of such stories just as evil and just as sad.
