Spirit.

When tens of police officers tell you they're having a police 'function' at Dataran Merdeka and that it is closed, in your my mind you tell them, "Yeah sure, don't give me that crap."

When a police officer ridiculously tells you to blow out a candle in five seconds, in your mind you tell him to fuck off.

When 2,000 people march on the streets of Kuala Lumpur, the police are dumbstruck.

The atmosphere along Jalan Tun Perak last night was amazing, with everyone holding up their candles high, chanting non-stop "Mansuhkan ISA", "Bebaskan RPK" and "Hindraf Valga". There was clearly nothing the police could do, despite us all completely blocking traffic on one side of the road. On the other side, there were cars passing by, honking away in support.

We were there for a cause.

We were there for justice.

Even if our attempts and actions were to no avail, at least we were there to let the government know that the people are no longer the people who we used to be.

And they better start thinking twice before putting people in the lockup.
