Anti-ISA Protest

Not long ago, an international news agency shown police forcefully using water cannon against Hindraf protesters in their television news. Yet, the most deep memory in the mentioned news is this phrase used to describe the situation at that time: "This is demorcacy - Malaysian style".

It seem that Malaysian style democracy remains the same as is in the recent protest against the draconian Internal Security Act (ISA). Herewith is the link to BBC News (Asia Pacific) video clip, which once and again shown that democracy is under siege (or perhaps, under ISA detention).
