Johoreans’ uprising assembly
BATU PAHAT, JOHOR(Nov 27, 2012): After the recent successful national-level Himpunan Kebangkitkan Rakyat (People’s Uprising Assembly) in Seremban (Negri Sembilan), it is now time for Johoreans to take the lead.
The state-level Himpunan Kebangkitkan Rakyat will be staged in Dataran Rakyat, PT. Salleh Ros, Parit Raja, Batu Pahat on Saturday (Dec 1, 2012).
The gathering is scheduled to start from 3pm and end at midnight.
There will be many community stalls and events for the people to interact until the serious ceramah (political discourse) starts at 8.30pm.
Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) leaders and activists will also address the people before the Pakatan Rakyat (PR)’s big three take to the stage.
The trio are PR’s de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim, PAS president Hadi Awang and DAP’s Lim Kit Siang.
Johor PKR chairman Chua Jui Meng chaired a four-hour-long state cum sub-organising committee meeting here tonight.
Chua urged Johoreans living near Batu Pahat to come out in full force to support the event and show their strength.

“This is the last stretch in our effort to galvanise the people to give the corrupt Umno-led Barisan Nasional (BN) government the boot in the next general election.
“I want all PR supporters and workers to work hard to ensure the success of Himpunan Kebangkitkan Rakyat Johor. The target is to attract a 30,000 crowd,” he told about 40 PKR state leaders.
On political issues arising daily, Chua advised local PKR members, branch and division leaders to ignore the controversies raised by BN-Umno.
“BN-Umno’s aim is to break us, disunite us and distract us from our work. Don’t let them distract our concentration to win the hearts and minds of the people.
“Ignore all the distractions manufactured by Umno and BN. Our aim is to win the next general election for not only PKR but also PR.,” he added.
