Tentang Pekan Frinjan

Pekan Frinjan adalah salah satu inisiatif kelompok Frinjan bertujuan untuk membudayakan masyarakat. Ini dilakukan dengan membawa pelbagai aktiviti seni dan kebudayaan terus kepada masyarakat umum, khususnya di laman massa dan jalanan. Dengan mempersembahkan seni dan budaya dalam bentuk “pop”, diharapkan masyarakat akan terus mahu mendekati bahan berteraskan intelektualisme. Ini penting dalam membentuk sebuah negara dan persekitaran bertamadun yang tidak hanya mementingkan pembangunan ekonomi semata-mata.

Frinjan ialah entiti sifar-untung yang dijayakan oleh kelompok bebas. Matlamatnya ialah untuk menganjurkan aktiviti jalanan bersifat semi-komersil dengan suntikan literari, pembudayaan masyarakat dan pengembangan sosial

27 million Malaysians. 11 million voters. 4 million more eligible Malaysians who haven’t registered to vote. A Federal Constitution that guarantees all of us rights, freedoms and a democratic system of government that answers to us. But how many Malaysians know this?

The MyConstitution Campaign

The MyConstitution Campaign has been running since November 2009. Our aim is to educate Malaysians from all walks of life on the Federal Constitution, to teach them about their rights and our system of government. We run forums and workshops all across Malaysia, from universities to schools, from Orang Asli kampungs to the cities and towns of East Malaysia. We publish “The Rakyat Guides”, booklets that explain in simple language, what the Federal Constitution says.

The Campaign is non-profit and the dedicated 200 Malaysians in the Bar Council’s Constitutional Law Committee who run this Campaign do it on a voluntary basis.


A song is an expression of free speech. Making music is the freedom to express yourself. Musicians coming together to make music is freedom of association. Fans coming together to listen to music is freedom of assembly.

Music is an assertion of democracy and with it, the exploration of the themes rights, elections and democracy. These themes are the subject matters of the recently released The Rakyat Guides: 8. Fundamental Liberties & Citizenship and the forthcoming The Rakyat Guides: 9. Elections & Democracy.

We could think of no better way to demonstrate the fundamental rights we are all guaranteed under the Federal Constitution than to make an album about it.

We have brought together an eclectic bunch of people to tell you in their own irreverent, sometimes irascible but always insightful style what fundamental rights, elections and democracy are to them.

We hope that in some small and meaningful way, it sparks in you the freedom to ask questions you never thought possible and empower your lives.

Your Rights and Freedoms
– Fundamental and Guaranteed!

Do you know what your rights and freedoms are? Do you know what they mean? Here are some of the rights and freedoms the Federal Constitution guarantees all of us:-

You have a right to life and personal liberty. Having a right to life means you have a right to livelihood and a certain quality of life. Having a right to liberty also means having a right to privacy.

All of us are equal before the law and entitled to equal protection of the law. We cannot be discriminated against simply because of our religion, ethnicity, descent, place of birth or gender. There are exceptions, but these exceptions are few.

You also have freedom of speech, freedom to assemble and freedom to associate. So, you are free to say what you want, get together with whomever you want and form a group for whatever reason you want. Again, these freedoms can be restricted, but only for reasons permitted by the Constitution and must only be where they are reasonably necessary.

You have the freedom to profess and practise any religion you want.

You cannot be discriminated in education only because of religion, race, descent or place of birth.

Learn more about your rights and freedoms in the The Rakyat Guides: 8. Fundamental Liberties & Citizenship details of which are available on www.perlembagaanku.com

Elections and Democracy
The Federal Constitution sets up a system for the governance of Malaysia. It is a “democratic” system which means that the people of Malaysia decide on who is to run the country.

We elect the Members of Parliament (MPs) who sit in the Dewan Rakyat in Parliament. These MPs make laws for the whole country and oversee how the Federal Government runs the country.

By electing MPs to the Dewan Rakyat, we also decide who forms the Federal Government. This is because the Prime Minister of the country is the MP who has the confidence of the majority of the MPs in the Dewan Rakyat. This normally means that the leader of the political party that has the most MPs in the Dewan Rakyat will become the Prime Minister of the country. The other Ministers who form the Federal Government are appointed with the approval of the Prime Minister.

We also elect members of the State Assembly (ADUNs) of our respective States. These ADUNs make laws for their respective States and oversee how their State Government runs the State.

By electing ADUNs to a State Assembly, we also decide who forms the Government of that State. This is because the Chief Minister or Menteri Besar of the State is the ADUN who has the confidence of the majority of the ADUNs in the State Assembly. This normally means that the leader of the political party that has the most ADUNs in the State Assembly will become the Chief Minister or Menteri Besar of the State. The other members of the State Government are appointed with the approval of the Chief Minister or Menteri Besar.

A call to action led to several brave and sexy members of the MyConstitution campaign coming together to record the official campaign theme song.

Comprising of students, practising lawyers, loyar murtad and everything in between, all are nonetheless committed to the cause and to making good music! After being ‘whispered’ to by professional musician Zalila Lee, the band was ready to kick ass and present this track to you lovely listeners.

This is but the first step in a twofold journey of enlightenment and entertainment, so please wish us luck as we keep rocking to a stage near you!

MyConstitution is Mine
by barcode

Do you look around and think that nothing’s changed?
Do you ever feel like you’re restrained? They say
there’re thoughts you cannot convey,
ideas you can’t portray
you know there must be a better way

A nation just and free, a dream of liberty
Bound in a document of destiny, but today
we’ve let doubt lead us astray,
we’ve let fear stand in our way,
now we must realise we have a role to play

For no one can silence what you have to say
And no one can ever take your freedom away
No one can tell you the way to define
What you think, what you believe, MyConstitution is mine

We’ll be the change that our nation needs to see
We’ll turn the dream into reality to be
A land that’s peaceful and strong
Which fights for right against wrong
And all of its people united and free!

For no one can silence what we have to say
And no one can ever take our freedom away
No one can tell us the way to define
What we think, what we believe, MyConstitution is mine

No matter who you are, no matter what defines you
There’s one thing you can always hold true

For no one can silence what we have to say
And no one can ever take our freedom away
No one can tell us the way to define
What we think, what we believe, MyConstitution is mine

For no one can silence what we have to say
And no one can ever take our freedom away
No one can tell us the way to define
What we think, what we believe, MyConstitution is mine

Shine A Light
by Thin Izzy

53 years ago a nation was born, into the hands of fate
It was the time, it was the place, it was a struggle, and the people couldn’t wait
For a new beginning and a new meaning, the future was in our eyes,
For a shining moment, we stood as one together, our hearts filled with pride

Now as years go by and the nation matures, like a boy into a man
Making an impact on the world and doing the best it can
But the lives of those subjugated by power and greed, began to take its toll
Laws that bind and take away and castigate the innocent, we began to lose our soul.

Shine a light
Shine a light
Shine a light on me
Shine a light on you
Shine a light on everything we do
Shine a light, with human rights.

And now its all in our hands and for those who live to be
Everything we were born to live and die for, to be proud and brave and free
For a moment know that all men are created equal, for a moment believe that it could be
That what reveals the truth from the lie, pulls the defenseless from the cruel
Is what’s inside of you and me.

You oughta know by now
What goes around right now will come around somehow
Yeah, but if you can see the light
It’s gonna be alright

The right to live with dignity
The right to life, liberty and security
The right to law and due process
The right to be free of arbitrary arrest and detention
The right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty
The right to privacy and freedom of movement
The right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion
The right to freedom of expression
The right to peaceful assembly
The right to be you and me.

Azmyl Yunor on vox and acoustic guitar

Find Azmyl Yunor on http://www.myspace.com/azmylyunor or e-mail him at azmylyunor@gmail.com

One of the hardest gigging and prolific Malaysian indie/underground musicians for the past decade, Azmyl Yunor has dabbled in, amongst others, folk rock, punk, free-form instrumentals and experimental noise rock.

Having roots in the D.I.Y. punk ethos, he is fiercely independent and all of his solo recordings are released on his own Rapidear label (his earlier obscure cassette home recordings are out of print) and Troubadours.

A former street musician, he is known for his strong songwriting and energetic live shows. He has performed at festivals and venues in countries around the region and internationally such as Australia, Singapore, South Korea, Japan, Laos and Thailand.

He is a co-founder and member of the Experimental Musicians and Artists Co-operative Malaysia (EMACM) and a co-founder of Troubadours Enterprise (along with fellow singer-songwriters Jerome Kugan and Tan Sei Hon), organisers of the annual Malaysian singer-songwriter festival KL Sing Song.

Azmyl has just released his new CD album “Warga” (which comes with a limited live cd album titled “H.I.D.U.P.”) in May 2010 and has been actively touring to promote it.

Low of the Land
by Azmyl Yunor

Every drop of water that drops into your pail
Suffers the indignity of the economics of scale
You try, you try to cleanse yourself hoping to be born again
Only to be left hung out to dry and soaked in the rain
And like the way them flies
make it to a rotting piece of lamb
Our fate is sketched
and stretched across the borders of the land

Oh yes...
This is the low of the land
Oh yes...
This is the low of the land
Oh yes...
This is the low of the land...
Oh yes...
This is the low... of the land

Thirty minutes out of town you calculate your escape
Only to realize you’ve sown what you reaped
You can keep your fingers crossed hoping for the lowest bid
But you know its rigged from the start,
now, who are you trying to kid?

The same land that you came from
The same land you begat
The same land that you laid on
The same land you’ll begat

The same land that you bled on
The same land you’ll defend
The same land you’ll be laid down... at the bitter end

Now the troops dry the ink on the imaginary line
That’s come to define what’s yours and what’s mine
But after all aren’t we all cut from God’s old dirty cloth
Only to be torn or ripped apart and boiled in the froth

Lyrics & Music by Azmyl Yunor


Temporary are Azfar on lead electric guitar, Zaiee on vox and rhythm acoustic guitar, Shun on keys, Dogo on bass and Apai on drums .

Contact Temporary at azfarts@gmail.com

Temporary started out as 5 dudes who just wanted to play music. As the name suggests, we had no intentions to play gigs or expand as a band. Being crammed up in a dorm room with our instruments was comfortable jamming out to Radiohead was comfortable enough.

But gee, zoning out to videos of Thom Yorke singing in front of thousands, we thought to ourselves, the view from up there must be pretty nice. So the band started out as a temporary distraction, but little did we know we kind of wished it’d stay permanent.

Besides Radiohead, we are all influenced by an eclectic mix of bands; from the likes of The Strokes, Nirvana, and Butterfingers. Still in its infancy stage, Temporary is eager to learn, grow and find a place in the Malaysian music scene.

Shrugs All Around
by Temporary

I could see a sea of harmonized shrugs
I could see a sea of folded arms
We can tell the difference between wrong and right
We can tell when you ain’t got nothing to say
We can tell the difference between black and white
But all my life i’ve been living in walls of grey

sleep safe and sound knowing that you’ve got all the power you need in your head
no don’t you shrug it off, nobody’s gonna get you down for what you keep under your bed
everybody knows
everybody knows
everybody knows
everybody knows nothing

If i could ever be the wind in the sky
i’d tell the whole neighborhood about you and i
but the streets are paved with the all-seeing eyes
and the parks at night are full of flashing light
i feel strangled, i think we’re living in a snowglobe
come on, and let’s slip away

breaking the mold of what is sacred
reserve your white flag for a rainy day

cos i’ve started to believe in this:
you feel what you wanna feel
you kiss who you wanna kiss
you say what you wanna say
you love who you wanna love

Better Than This
by Lord Bobo’s Minions

We’re waiting for the next plane
We’re soaked through from the hellfire rain
So here we are baggage packed on the terminal bench
And she’s crying and I’m sighing and we’re dying inside

No one cares for our absence
No one shares our reluctant reluctance
So there we are eyes wide shut on a wing and a prayer
And I run so she runs but it’s not to the sun

‘Where will we go?’ she says to me
‘Will we be the same?’ tearfully
I say, ‘Baby, I don’t know
But it’ll be better than this
Much more forgiving than this
So much sweeter and better than this.’

She’s clutching her small crucifix
I’m grasping some half forgotten verses
So here we go in the air no turning back
And she’s sad and I’m sad but we need it that bad

‘Where will we live?’ she asks of me
‘What shall we tell those who ask?’
I say, ‘Sweetheart, I don’t know
But it’ll be better than this
Tell them more honest than this
So much sweeter and better than this.’

The Sounders started playing together in 2008, but they have known each other for as long as they can remember. After all, it’s a band comprising of family members initially set up to play family functions.

They don’t discriminate music and anything goes as long as its music to their ears.

Lip Service
by The Sounders

Your stand seemed unbending
But no, they yield

I was promised many things
Of the freedom that I prefer
Hey are they just lip service?
Kiss my words away, my faith too
You’re a quest of unfulfilled dreams
Kiss my choice away
My liberty too

Reverence should be yours
Too pretentious to care
Do you dare keep your promises?
How far we’ve come, how long have you been slighted?
You’re no more than just lip service.

Lyrics by Dayah & Music by Shaz


An Honest Mistake are Darren Teh on lead vox and electric guitar, Sheryl on vox, Leonard on electric guitar, Baldwin on keys, Cottie on bass and Kevin on drums

Find An Honest Mistake at anhonestmistakeband.com , facebook.com/anhonestmistake, and myspace.com/anhonestmistakeisemo or
at info.anhonestmistake@gmail.com or avril_chan@hotmail.com

No other band is as representative of Malaysia’s rising indie scene as An Honest Mistake - inventive, energetic, enthusiastic, and colorful. The pop-punk/easycore sextet have been making waves for the past two years with their mix of addictive pop-punk with swirls of frenetic screamo, and as their recent Urbanscapes and Baybeats performances show, they’re here to stay.

Already holding the VIMA 2010 Best College Act award, An Honest Mistake also have a 7-track self-titled debut album out now, showcasing gems like This Song Is So Random I Don’t Know Why, which has seen radio airplay and remains one of their signature sing-along’s that’s instantly recognizable.

Juxtaposed directly with their affective ‘The Snake With Limbs’ , a song about betrayal and ‘I’m Down With You If You’re Down With It’, a 7-track album may not sound like much, but AHM manage to address an entire spectrum of emotions and situations into one neat purple package.

With a loyal surge of purple-clad Dino Warriors backing them up, Darren Teh, Leonard Chua, Sheryl Goh, Danny New, Kevin ‘Cottie’ Tan, and Kevin Theng are here to prove the sky’s the limit for Malaysian music- and AHM are leading the pack.

Let’s Battle It Out With Vesuvius The Great
by An Honest Mistake

This ship is going down
All hands on deck
Before they float away
Leaving you behind
Can’t see me through the fog, crashing on these waves
Close your eyes, we’re almost there
Gasp for air the shore is out of my reach
It’s too late to say goodbye, it’s too late to say goodbye
Brace yourself, they’re coming for us, they’re coming for us

And I’m afraid of the things to come
Have we lost our way somehow?
To the ones who said we’ll never make it
We’re still here; we made it through the night

The storm is just the beginning, we’ll brave through this
We’ll brave through this somehow

Captain, captain we are sinking
Can we get out of this?

Moral Bankruptcy
by MC Stiff

POWER CORRUPTS and thats not even the worst scene,
ABSOLUTE POWER COrrupts absolutely,
i wonder how life could be,

Life takes its flight,
doesnt happen overnight,
when nobody’s living right,
all these new models are boondoggles,

policies that seem, hell-a-great,
how does it benefit the people? JyeaH! That’s the debate..
political patronage over people’s welfare,
minimal healthcare, but who the hell cares?

the problem is, the value of your promises,
diminishes, as your words finishes,

filling us with hope,
your chest fells tight when you walk the tight rope,
dictating our rights, but your deceitful lies shoW,
are all our needs fullfilled? No..
is this the nation that we sought to build? No..

from our global corruption
to rigging elections
the power struggle repeats,
as we ruled by elites,
the ironfist leader will never defeat it,
beacause power of our people stays undefeated,

when we gave them the power to democracy,
we didnt see,the misery that came with our choices,
giving pedophile voices, banning lifestyle choices,
arbitrary decisions now our thoughts would be,
now this wasnt the picture my mind depicted,
this wasnt the future that i predicted..

like the wings to a bird,
Rights are a precursor,
to bring you forward,
its absence will reverse ya,

please grant us our rights,
all of us are asking,
morals get a trashing,
without sorrows and compassion,
tomorrow ends up crashing,
and the horrors encompassing,

occurrences of violent strikes getting lives struck dead,
making all the classes of the masses have a massive bloodshed,
now imagine that..
when your people died
all your hopes and pride
slopes and slides
leaving nations left with genocides.

its a probable probability,
and it will probably,
be a commonality,
how do we regain the trust of society?
roadblock to peace in failed democracies..

Ugly, Ugly, Ugly (So Ugly, We Had To Say It Three Times)
by Carburetor Dung

Do tell me one thing,
Do tell me what’s your story?
Do take a look here,
Where’s everything we hold dear?

Give back my senses,
Give me some space for breathing,
This world you’re selling,
You know I won’t be buying!

You are...

Do tell me two things,
These strings I see on your being,
Scissors to the reins, dear?
Or that’s the only tune you’ll hear?

Give up your dances,
I’m not your blind believing
This world you’re selling,
You know I won’t be buying!

You are...

You’re ugly
Too blind, too proud to see
Suffocates me

You’re ugly....
Too ugly...
So ugly...

The band has been around since late 1999 and revolved around close college friends. Purveyors of the niche genre, avant noise, they hold no love for any one particular set of norms; sometimes bending them or expanding on them, they play fast and loose and love living on the edge and like the sight of jumping off a cliff.

While they have been laying dormant since their last album, dialogue amoureux in 2003, they have remained restless and reckless, fuelled by their day-job angst and a general disdain for the cookie cutter approach to life.

Four of its members are law students who thought it would be fun to start up a band in between exams. The name is a satirical take on the concept of the “rule of law”. You may find them performing at a pub near you after their next exams, regardless of passing or failing.

by Rule of Rock

Time has seen some changes in
the way we live our lives
Changes in the way we think and choose
But there is something we must
know and learn and understand
C’mon c’mon cuz there’s no time to lose

We are never too young to know
We are never too old to grow
We can’t sleep at night just waiting for the dawn
People show me that you care
We ain’t going anywhere
So pull your socks up, get your shoes on and rolll ...

My Constitution

We are comin to your town to
bring this word to you
A message for yer fam’ly and yer friends
Wake up wake up it’s gettin late
n there’s so much to do
C’mon, c’mon n shout it cross the land ..

C’mon, c’mon it’s not too late
The future’s in our hands
Take this message to your heart
And Shout it out cross the land

Joget Melayu Liberal
by Panda Head Curry?

Anak : Ayah?
Ayah : Ya, anakku.
Anak : Apakah makna “perlembagaan”?
Ayah : Hmm. Soalan yang amat bagus. Perihal perlembagaan, sebenarnya, anakku, lebih baik kita ADA PERLEMBAGAAN, daripada kita dikejar LEMBAGA yang seram.

Ayah : Oh ya, bila jumpa ibu kamu hujung minggu ini, jangan lupa beritahu dia, “Syaitan! Syaitan! Syaitan!”.

Inilah, kita_punya per-lem-ba-ga-an.
Buku yang agak tebal, dan banyak halaman
Kalau_ki-ta tiada_perlembagaan.
Kita akan hidup, sama macam haiwan.
Seperti arnab, rusa, landak_dan angsa.
Hari-mau bintang, dan ikan kelisa
Bergaduh, membunuh, dan_memakan_sesama.
Di tasik yang dalam dan hutan belentara, hey!

Perlem-ba-ga-an mung-kin sukar difa-ham.
Itu_adalah ke-ra-na ia_ditulis peguam
Kalaulah i-a ditulis jurutera.
Lebih jelas dan ringkas, banyak nombor dan carta
Juru-tera_ke-bang-aan Malaysia!
Bina pelantar minyak, pemanas air suria!
Belajarlah matematik, fizik dan kimia.
Nanti suatu hari, boleh jadi jurutera!


Mari, mari kita semua mengundi.
Tak kira pagi, petang atau te-ngah hari!
Kalau anda tidak mengundi, oh kawan.
Kamu akan hidup, sama macam haiwan!
Seperti tenggiling, obor-obor_dan kurita.
Beruang, anjing laut, di kutub utara
Bergaduh, membunuh, dan_memakan_sesama.
Di lautan yang dalam dan hutan belentara, hey!

Mengundi seronok, dan senang di faham.
Kalau kita mengundi, tidak perlu peguam.
Kalau tak mengundi, jangan pandai merungut.
Tak boleh beli bir, atau pergi rumah urut.
Daftarlah sekarang, sebelum terlambat.
Kalau lepas peluang, mungkin dimakan beruang.
Bawalah kawan, anak, ibu dan bapa.
Pergilah mengundi, tanpa kira usia!


Demokrasi ciptaan Yunani.
Mereka suka mousakka, dan berfilosofi.
Kalau tiada demokrasi, oh kawan.
Kamu akan hidup, sama macam haiwan!
Seperti burung tiong, cacing tanah_dan kelawar.
Pepijat, kuda belang, dan juga ular sawar
Bergaduh, membunuh, dan_memakan_sesama.
Di gua yang gelap, dan hutan belentara, hey!

Demokrasi, untuk semua manusia.
Peguam, orang kastam, dan juga jurutera
Orang dari Chad dan Jepun dan Mali.
Eskimo, Navajo, Senoi dan Benggali
Marilah kita amalkan demokrasi.
Setiap malam, setiap hari
Kalau mereka tamatkan demokrasi.
Kita tutup akaun, pindah ke negara demokrasi!

Kami ada hak! Kamu ada hak! Zia ul-Haq ada hak!
Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi!
Ketahui hak anda! Ketahui hak dia! Ketahui hak semua!
Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi!
Aishah ada hak! Kamala ada hak! Wei Wei ada hak!
Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi!
Manusia ada hak! Robot belum ada hak!
Walaupun dia dari masa depan dan mau cari John Connor!
Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi!
Jangan hilang! Jangan terpedaya! Jangan sesat!
Pegang ketat! Hak anda!
Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi!
Bambang ada hak! Mutuveloo ada hak! Chin Wong Lau ada hak!
Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi!

Tentang Jom Bangkit

Bangkit, a project of the Youth Outreach program of Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia began as a platform to stimulate Malaysian Youth into becoming socially and politically aware and taking an interest in their own future and the future of the nation.

The maiden project of the jomBangkit campaign was the Bangkit Collection – a compilation of songs composed and performed by young Malaysians about their nation and the things that matter to them. This project resulted in a remarkable collection of songs that cuts across musical genres and social niches. The CD that was the outcome of this project has been well received and can be purchased from Bangkit CD sales.
This website is now available for the next youth project. We are seeking ideas and volunteers. If you wish to suggest something that we can do, write to us at yo-sabm@gmail.com.

Remaja Malaysia, jom Bangkit!

Tentang Bijou Bazaar

A diet of sprawling shopping malls and cookie cutter boutiques has left consumers saturated yet unfulfilled, It's not more products we crave, but an exchange of ideas, knowledge and experience. First piloted in July 2007, Bijou Bazaar seek to offer a corrective to today's soulless shopping landscape by yoking commerce to culture. The organising would normally carry three elements: retail lab, installation space and noise venue. In doing so, Bijou Bazaar has also positioned itself as a social enterprise offering a platform, incubating specific young creative micro retailers to test the viability of their retail mix with the right niche marke

Rangkuman FORUM: Pilihan raya atau pilihan jalan raya?

Dari kiri - Hilman, Fahmi, Termana dan Isham Rais

Forum pertama anjuran bersama Forum Frinjan dan Distro Buku telah berjaya diadakan dengan kehadiran hampir 50 pemuda pemudi di pot baru anak muda di 50B, Bangsar bersebelahan pejabat Malaysiakini. Forum bermula jam 9 malam, lewat 30 minit seperti yang dijadualkan kerana ramai hadirin pertama kali hadir ke kawasan ini yang sangat popular di era awal reformasi dengan gerakan2 anak muda seperti UBU, Food Not Bombs dan individu2 yang ditakuti sang penguasa pada waktu itu. Maka ramai yang tersesat dan susah nak jumpa, lepas ni dah tahu senang la.

Perbincangan hangat berlangsung selama 2 jam dan ucapan terima kasih selayaknya diberikan kepada moderator Hilman Idham dan barisan panelis Hishamuddin Rais, Fahmi Reza & Ngurah Termana. Terima kasih juga kepada Farhan Azahan, Perewa Muda, Hadi Khalid, Petak Daud dan Tan Sri Izmil Amri yang telah membantu. Terima kasih banyak2 juga kepada yang hadir, segala kelemahan dan kesulitan harap dimaafkan. Kritikan dan cadangan dialu-alukan untuk penambahbaikan. Emel ke frinjan@gmail.com. 50B akan mengancam!

Di bawah merupakan poin2 yang dilontarkan barisan panelis dan ditweet oleh Tan Sri Izmil Amri dan Farhan Azahan. Terima kasih banyak! :)

Sekalung phargaan juga buat panelis, @ishamrais, Fahmi Reza, Ngurah Termana, dan @hilmanidham sebagai moderator utk forum mlm ini

Forum tamat. Trima kasih utk semua yg hadir! Trima kasih @izmilamri utk live update mlm ini

Fahmi Reza: Pilihanraya bukan alternatif terbaik. Revolusi Mesir tidak dpengaruhi parti politik, hanya massa rakyat

@ishamrais Anak muda harus gunakan wacana sebanyak mungkin untuk pencerahan

@ishamrais Kejatuhan Mubarak bukan sepenuhnya tamat revolusi

@ishamrais Utk berlaku perubahan, yg diperlukan adalah structural changes

@ishamrais Parti politik di Malaysia skadar bersaing utk mjadi kuasa kapitalis. Market forces rules

Ngurah: Di negara mana pun revolusi tidak akn bjaya tnpa oposisi yang kuat

Fahmi Reza: Di Malaysia tidak demokrasi tidak sepenuhnya, kerana ia sebenarnya demokrasi perwakilan. Bkan rakyat bwahan yg mbuat kputusan

Fahmi Reza: Revolusi di Msia tidak well organized bbanding Mesir

Fahmi Reza: Yg menyatukan rakyat adalah demokrasi universal. Sama matlamat

Fahmi Reza: Apa2 yang dipaksa ke atas org, org akan membantah

Hadirin memenuhi ruang hadapan. Ramai terpaksa berdiri di blkg http://plixi.com/p/79636438

Panelis forum malam ini #50B http://twitpic.com/438wzb

FR: Keyword kerajaan ialah 'raja'. Patutnya dia pentadbir sahaja

@ishamrais Notion of middle class bukan setakat income. tetapi nilai2 e.g. membaca, pro HR, x tgk TV

@ishamrais : Kemiskinan bukan hukum untuk berlakunya pemberontakan. Lost of hope it crucial. Tak boleh ada ilusi pilihanraya

@ishamrais bercerita kisah re4mac dan menyorot revolusi timur tengah

@ishamrais : Demokrasi gagal kerana kerangka yg terlalu besar dan ramai. patut ada autonom2 kecil yg memudahkan perlaksanaan demokrasi

@ishamrais : Kita ini adalah insan2 yang belum terduga. Di situ idealisme kita diuji. dlm struktur kuasa, mereka diuji

@ishamrais 1971 kita juga angkat Gadafi. namun semua itu bertukar. power structure berubah. idealisme juga berubah

Panelis forum malam ini adalah Hishamudin Rais, Ngurah Termana dan Fahmi Reza

Termana: Demokrasi paling ideal beri ruang bersuara utk yg tiada suara.

FR: Tugas aktivis utk buka mata rakyat terhadap ketidakadilan. Highlight dan beri ruang rakyat solve problem. Bukan mcm parti politik

FR: Apa yg terjadi pad DSAI dan mood anti Mahathir trigger kemarahan rakyat sekitar re4mac. Malaysia x sampai tahap Mesir

FR: Bentuk Demokrasi yang perlu; grassroot democracy. Up to us untuk fikirkan apa bentuk demokrasi. perlu inclusive

FahmiReza: Selagi perubahan tidak datang dari bawah ke atas, ia tidak akan kekal. Change can come thru social movements

FR: Revolusi Mesir lahir dari gerakan anak muda yang tersusun. Tidak centralized, organik dan dtg dari bawah

Fahmi Reza: April 6th Youth Movement memulakan usaha massa untuk bergerak sehingga 25haribulan. N it sparkd a revolution.

Termana: pilihanjlnraya bukan sgt last resort sbnrnya

Termana: Pilihan Jalan Raya itu pendidikan politik. #50B

Di Tunisia dan Mesir pemerintah diguling dalam revolusi di jalanan dan beberapa negara di Timur Tengah dan Afrika turut terkena tempias Revolusi di era Facebook, Twitter dan Youtube.

Jangan dilupakan, tahun 1998 jiran kita Indonesia juga berjaya menumpaskan pemimpin diktator melalui pilihan jalan raya, malangnya pilihan raya setelahnya itu tidak memberi banyak impak terhadap kesejahteraan rakyat. Adakah Tunisia dan Mesir akan mengulangi kesilapan ketidaksiapan Indonesia dalam menangani perubahan.

Melihat hal ini, bagaimana dengan kita negara Malaysia? Adakah kita siap untuk berjuang di jalan, dan jika bukan di jalan adakah pilihanraya tempang yang ada diakui. Apakah sikap kita terutama anak muda?

Jika punya masa terluang, dijemput hadir untuk mendengar dan berkongsi pandangan bersama panelis yang dijemput, malangnya Saudara Helme Hanafi dari UMNO tidak dapat hadir kerana mempunyai komitmen lain.

Tentang Pekan Frinjan

Pekan Frinjan adalah salah satu inisiatif kelompok Frinjan bertujuan untuk membudayakan masyarakat. Ini dilakukan dengan membawa pelbagai aktiviti seni dan kebudayaan terus kepada masyarakat umum, khususnya di laman massa dan jalanan. Dengan mempersembahkan seni dan budaya dalam bentuk “pop”, diharapkan masyarakat akan terus mahu mendekati bahan berteraskan intelektualisme. Ini penting dalam membentuk sebuah negara dan persekitaran bertamadun yang tidak hanya mementingkan pembangunan ekonomi semata-mata.

Frinjan ialah entiti sifar-untung yang dijayakan oleh kelompok bebas. Matlamatnya ialah untuk menganjurkan aktiviti jalanan bersifat semi-komersil dengan suntikan literari, pembudayaan masyarakat dan pengembangan sosial
