Undi DAP, Dan Kedai Anda Akan Dirobohkan?

Ini merupakan isu besar dalam media sosial Cina minggu lepas, Perobohan itu juga disiarkan secara langsung di FB di mana seorang wanita menangis dan mengutuk DAP kerana tidak menunaikan janjinya.

————

Melihat di Facebook pemilik restoran makanan laut tersebut, mereka adalah penyokong Bersih; Selain menghadiri perhimpunan Bersih, mereka juga mengakui bahawa mereka telah mengundi DAP dalam menyokong kerajaan Pakatan Rakyat.

Seperti biasa, selepas kejadian itu, banyak penyokong DAP telah mengkritik MCA di Facebook yang mengatakan bahawa pengendali adalah ahli MCA dan juga restoran mereka adalah haram.

Penyokong DAP berpendapat bahawa dengan mengecam mereka sebagai anggota MCA orang awam akan mengubah simpati mereka terhadap pengendali, dan bahkan dengan mentaliti “memang patut pun”.

Vote for the rocket, and it will tear down your shop?

Tanjung Sepat Lover’s Bridge restaurants were demolished by District and Land Office recently, sympathizers of the restaurants had posted the video clipping of the incident on social media and it has become a hot topic for discussion and widely shared by netizens.

Put aside who is right and who is wrong, just watch the video clipping of crying and wailing, anyone will feel pity. Besides sympathy, there is more anger, and the fury is aimed at DAP, a component party of Selangor state coalition government. The restaurants owners had held several negotiations with Selangor state executive councilor Ean Yong Hian Wah, hoping to reach a win-win situation but was in vain.

Things have come to this point and as onlookers we don’t know the whole details of the incident, so we are unable to judge right and wrong in law. Of course, if the owners of the restaurants are not satisfied, they can take legal action against Selangor state government; but Selangor state government definitely acted according to the law, the question is whether there was any promise made which is beyond the law, and for this only Ean Yong Hian Wah and the restaurant owners would know.

This incident triggered some pondering. I still remember before Pakatan Rakyat took over the helm of the state government in Penang, there was the incident of Dou Mu Gong Temple, Bukit Mertajam which happened in November 2006. The then Member of Parliament for Bukit Mertajam Chong Eng wrote an article with the title “Look at the politics of demolishing of Dou Mu Gong” which was published in Kwong Wah Yit Poh. The article mentioned about the demolishing of Dou Mu Gong Temple had embarrassed MCA Penang state executive councillor Lau Chiek Tuan who was also the state assemblyman for that area. She pointed out that the incident happened in MCA constituency and therefore should not put the blame on opposition party.

And now, putting Chong Eng’s words in the incident of Tanjung Sepat Lover’s Bridge restaurants, the area is under PAS’s constituency, and PAS is one of the coalition members of the Selangor state government. Although presently the relationship between PAS and Pakatan Harapan is not certain, since PAS had decided to fulfill the promises to voters in the 2013 general election, then the constituency of PAS should also be the constituency of the ruling party, doesn’t the incident embarrass the Selangor state government?

Back then, Chong Eng was nearly arrested by police during the Bukit Mertajam Dou Mu Gong incident when she tried to stop the demolition act. DAP was dauntless and stood together with the people during that incident; it used to stand together with the people, and now why it has changed attitude after changing of position? DAP has been ruling Penang and Selangor states for nine years, has it forgotten how it had tried to stop the bulldozer together with the people?

Looking at the Facebook of the seafood restaurant operators, they are supporters of Bersih; apart from attending the Bersih rally, they also admitted that they had voted for DAP in supporting of Pakatan Rakyat government. What has driven this group of Pakatan supporters to change their fervent believe and to seek the assistance of Sepang MCA division chief Datuk Ng Chok Sin? It is because they feel that the political party which they have supported cannot assist in solving their problem.

As usual, after the incident, many DAP supporters had criticized MCA on the Facebook saying that the operators are MCA members and also their restaurants are illegal. DAP supporters thought that by charging them as MCA members the public would reserve their feeling towards the operators, and even with a “they deserved it” mentality. Such phenomenon of cyber bullying in protecting DAP and Selangor state government is quite common, it would be strange if they don’t resort to such slandering tactic.

The enforcement of law is no more than human kindness; even if the restaurants are built on the land owned by the state government, the operators had kneeled on the ground crying for mercy and asked for a week’s grace period, or even just give them one day so that they could move out all the furniture and kitchen appliances; but they just didn’t bother about all these request, showing how unkind the Selangor state government is.

The political party that had once stopped the bulldozer together with the people, had now turned the bulldozed against the people and destroyed their livelihood, doesn’t this disappoint the people? Earlier on, the extended portion of the toilet of Kaffa Café situated at the Penang International Airport was being torn down; several outlets owned by its operator Patrick Ooi were also being disturbed. No wonder there is a jingle composed by the netizens over the demolition incidents which says “Vote for the rocket, and it will tear down your shop!”

投火箭,拆你店?

丹绒士拔情人桥海鲜馆日前遭到县土地局强硬拆除,同情海鲜馆遭遇的人士将拆除过程的视频上载到社交媒体,引起网民广泛地分享和热烈讨论。

在未论是非黑白前,单看视频内的哭诉和哀嚎,就叫人怜悯三分。三分怜悯之外,七分愤怒,而这一股怒气直指雪州联合政府之一的行动党,而餐馆业者多次与行动党籍行政议员欧阳捍华协商,以期达到双赢的局面,但事与愿违。

事情发展到如斯地步,看官们不知来龙去脉,所以无法在法律上判断对错。当然,海鲜馆业者若不满,可遵循法律程序,对雪州政府展开诉讼;但雪州政府也肯定是依据法律行事,只是里头是否存在着不包含在法律内的承诺,那就只有欧阳捍华与餐馆业者才知道。

此事件引发几个思考,一一数来。记得发生在民联执政槟城之前,即2006年11月份的大山脚斗母宫拆除事件,时任大山脚国会议员章瑛于《光华日报》发表了一篇文章—《看拆斗母宫的政治》,文章里头提到拆除斗母宫让马华行政议员,也是该区州议员的刘一端很难堪,她也指强拆斗母宫事件发生在马华选区,不能把问题推诿给在野党。

如今把这一句话套在丹绒士拔强拆情人桥海鲜馆事件上,该区州议员来自伊党,也是雪州政府一员。虽然目前关系不明朗,但既然选择履行2013年大选对选民的承诺,那么伊党州选区应当是执政党的选区,此事件难道不叫雪州政府难堪吗?

当年为了阻止大山脚斗母宫被拆除,章瑛还险些被警察扣留。行动党议员当年的无惧风浪,与民同在的情操怎么因为换了位子,就换了脑袋呢?行动党在槟州与雪州当了9年的政府,难道忘了当年你们如何与人民共同阻挡神手的步步逼近吗?

看看海鲜馆负责人的脸书,意识到餐馆业者是净选盟的支持者,除了出席示威游行之外,业者更直言过去是把选票投给行动党,支持民联政府。是什么原因让这一群民联支持者改变了自己过去所坚持的理念,寻求雪邦马华区会主席黄祚信的帮忙?因为他们认为自己所支持的政党无法协助解决问题。

事情发生之后,一如既往,社交媒体出现很多行动党支持者抨击马华,污蔑餐馆负责人是马华党员,说他们的餐馆不合法经营等等。行动党支持者认为为业者套上马华的帽子,普罗大众就会对业者的遭遇有所保留,甚至可能期望大家心里抱着一种“该死”的心态。这种捍卫行动党和雪州政府声誉的网络霸凌方式,已是见惯不惯,没出现此等污蔑,才会不习惯呢!

执法不外乎人情,即使餐馆是设立在州政府的土地也罢,业者跪地哀求宽容一星期,甚至最低限度的一天,让他们可以安排承包商将厨房器具和桌椅搬走,但一切一切都不获得理会,显见雪州政府的不近人情。

曾经与民共同阻挡神手的政党,如今却毫无情面地向老百姓祭出神手,强硬地摧毁人民的生计,这不叫老百姓心寒吗?槟城早前有机场Kaffa咖啡座附加厕所被拆除,过后业者黄家业的数间营业店面也遭打扰,现有丹绒士拔情人桥海鲜餐馆被强拆,难怪网民就拆店一事流传一句顺口溜,“投火箭,拆你店!”
