May He Be The Last….. A Memorial for Beng Hock and Beyond, 29 July 2009 (Updated)

I count it an honor to have been part of the preparation for this event in a small way.

I believe it will be unique memorial which everyone regardless of race, religion and political persuasion can relate to. It’s beyond party politics, so I’d highly recommend your participation.

Below is a personal invitation from Wong Chin Huat :

Dear Colleagues,

A special memorial will be held tomorrow night at KLSCAH tomorrow night, the 14th day of Beng Hock’s death. But this is not one for him alone, but for all others who perished in custody – police lock-up, prison, detention camp. We do not have the figure since the inception of Malaya or Malaysia. From 2003 to date, the number is 1,805 including Beng Hock. That is 23 deaths every month, or 3 deaths every four days.

One life lost is too much. Is it not? When Beng Hock died, many of us would like him to be the last. He did not make it. Another person, 31, just died in custody in Sentul hours later. Can we still feel indifferent?

Come tomorrow night to KLSCAH, in black. (Please avoid bright colour even if you dont have anything black.) Light a candle for the dead who should be living.

There will be no political speech.

There will be no religious ceremony.

There will be only tribute to the dead and reflections of the living.

Yours,

Chin Huat
