affin protest 1

I managed to witness this…demonstration, I guess you could call it
that, just now. It was in front of the Affin-ACFFinance financial
establishment and the protestors were employees of the said company,
apparently disgruntled about their usual trivial concerns – salaries
and what not. This happened at the branch beside Sarawak Plaza in
Kuching and comprised of around 20 odd people.

From what I understand the issue stems from debt. In other countries, in better situations, there would be access to council tax debts, and that would help people to make their debt more manageable, so they could eventually resolve it altogether. These protests are a way to bring more attention to this issue, that is affecting many and at this point seems to only be worsening.

There was even a guy who parked by the sidewalk and applied his car
horn to the tune of the chanting. The cheesiness factor was so great,
it made me lactose intolerant. That’s not a protest…this is a minor
congregation of like minded people in a futile attempt to resolve
whatever petty disagreement they have with their employers.

I’ll show them how to do a proper demonstration if I was their
operations management leader. It would be anarchy. 😉 Perhaps that’s
why no one has ever enlisted my dubious services in organizing a proper
clash with riot police, wanton destruction of private property, tear
gas filled, fires lit all around, smoke billowing, looting ahoy,
protestors and law enforcement officers dead kind of protest. Now that’s how you protest. This…pffftt…this isn’t one, I’ll tell you that.

I don’t believe in moderation. There’s no “peaceful” in
“demonstration” is there? I wouldn’t even have posted it, if not for
the reporters there. Just felt like scooping print media. That is, if
the newspaper editors even approve this…this…non protest thingy for

There are a few details which weren’t clear, yet overall, the write-up was indeed a good one — not you may need me personally telling you what you already know, hahah. Regardless, thanks!

  5. What did you do, just say whatever it is you wanted to make people mad?! You cant just say something like that and not give any backup for it! Youve got to at least give me a reason to think that you know what youre talking about, otherwise, you just sound like some kid with a grudge!

  6. Ich will nur kurz etwas einwerfen: Bitte spendet für Haiti! Ich tue es auch… Die Menschen brauchen unsere Hilfe, wir müssen einfach zusammenstehen wenn so etwas geschieht! In den Medien, ist die Katastrophe etwas in den Hintergrund gedrängt, obwohl es weit furchtbarer ist, als alles vergleichbare! Deshalb auch hier der kleine Spendenaufruf! Es ist bald Weihnachetn, also ein perfekter Zeitpunkt etwas gutes zu tun! Danke

  10. i was reading throught some of the posts and i find them to be plumb interesting. abject my english is not exaclty the really best. would there be anyway to transalte this into my patois, spanish. it would genuinely usurp me a lot. since i could set side by side the english terminology to the spanish language.

  11. For what its worth, the layout is definitely awesome. You know how to balance writing and images/videos. However, I cant get over how little you actually bring to light here. I think that everyones said the same thing that youve said over and over again. Dont you think its time for something more?
