  1. Time for Malaysian Opposition to initiate a nationwide stricke like Bangladesh’s current 3-day general strike called by the Bangladeshi Opposition; likewise USA Gov’t shut down from Sept 30 to Oct 16 ‘13 following disputes with Republican Opposition. Please call for a general strike to demand EC ‘s revamp and clean up of electoral rolls, etc; all politicians to declare their assets, Cowgate, Skorpene and Sarawak’s Taib Mahmud to be investigated immediately – after 32 years of earth-shaking plundering to the tune of RM40-50billion, controlling all aspects of economic activities, when he was only elected to SERVE. With majority popular vote half the country will come to a standstill and bring the criminals to their knees. Alan Newman, New Zealand, ranked the highest in democracy & transparency.

  2. In a democratic country, Dr MM, Najib, Taib, etc would be arrested and tried for treason, undermining and destroying the Nation through: a) Apartheid & racism. b) Deception of the public with controlled media and rigged elections. c) Weakening almost all institutions of governance including the legislature, judiciary, police, ACC/MACC, the Election Commission, and the Attorney-General’s Chambers. d) Mis-management, manipulation and corruption causing losses in hundreds of billions of RM$. If convicted all stolen assets to be returned and then the Convicts executed for treason. It is appalling these people behave like heroes, saints and kings without the slightest remorse or sense of shame. MM’s sons are directors of 200 companies and drive some of the most expensive cars in the world, eg the Ferrari Enzo & the RM5.5million Bugatti Veyron…Am writing from a truly transparent and democratic country, NZ.

About

Meld Magazine was incorporated as an independent not-for-profit media outlet in September 2008 to reach out to international students in Melbourne, and provide students the opportunity to gain real work experience.

Many international students live in or around the city because of the proximity to their colleges and universities, and that was where we decided to focus our efforts first. Many of us live, work and study locally too. Our editorial team is made of both local and international students, and it has worked to our advantage in providing local content in every sense of the word.
