Malaysians in need urged to hang white flags outside homes

この記事を書いている人 - WRITER -

A social media campaign in Malaysia is encouraging people who have fallen on hard times to hang a white flag outside their homes.
That is to ensure they receive community help with food and paying rent as a COVID-19 lockdown continues indefinitely.
But as Al Jazeera’s Florence Looi reports from the capital, the campaign has taken another turn, with people directing their anger towards the government.

    Well with all due respect it’s China that started all of this hardship now government s are paying.

      @Rebel Wind At which point yang aku cakap rakyat Malaysia ni innocent? If we want to talk about salah rakyat Malaysia, sure, let’s do it. There’s a lot. Tapi kat sini dia nak highlight salah peningkatan kes tu pada China. Sure, they’re the cause tapi kita dah buktikan yang kita mampu untuk kawal, lawan and persevere through it last year. Then came the second wave, apa kerajaan kita buat? “Masih terkawal, tak perlu bimbang, tak perlu panik.”

      Aku tak cakap rakyat Malaysia tak bersalah, some memang bertanggungjawab dalam peningkatan kes. But now, when dah jelas-jelas kebanyakan kes berpunca di kawasan kilang and perindustrian but kerajaan still buat don’t know, who should we blame? Still China?

    • Avatar Ariff WM says:

      @Rebel Wind I remember the first MCO Malaysians in general were all compliant. But after the second and third MCO it got worse because there were no more roadblocks. Then we hear ministers traveling abroad and having dinner gatherings. When clusters started within the factories, they didn’t close it down. People were allowed to go back to their home during raya. Even ramadhan bazaars opened. Remember the government allowed them to balik kampung and open bazaars. They are the ones who give the authority to travel and permits to open stalls. The People will only be as good as their government. Ever wondered why Malaysians always to run red lights and speed? Because they don’t get caught. No real enforcement leads to this sort of behaviour.

      Agreed everyone is guilty too but the buck stops with the government. I miss Pakatan Harapan even with all its flaws. At least it was democratic. We had a good health minister. Now these politicians are playing musical chairs to stay in power whilst citizens are putting up white flags. You still want to blame the rakyat?

    • Avatar razer666L says:

      @Alif Amirul To be also fair, none of this would’ve happened if it wasn’t for those tabligh attendees that defied the government’s warnings. There’s a reason why “tabligh” was synonymous with “liars”, “irresponsible” and “stupid” last year.

      @Malone’s Cones Good Ice Cream I thought we all just called by names, or races.
      Discrimination seldom appear in my place so I don’t really know what the semenanjung people actually do.

      Heck I’m Chinese myself and I got Muslim friends or Kadazan friends as well.

    • Avatar Matryoshka Doll says:

      @Malone’s Cones Good Ice Cream I agree my country is quite poor, but tbh the places you listed out like Penang or Malacca is actually wealthy places in Malaysia. Since I live in the East side of Malaysia I don’t know what the discrimination against races be like in the West side.

    This is obvious that the current failed government failed at combating covid and failed to helping its citizens. Malaysians no longer can depends on their failed government, instead helping each other.

    Lockdowns and Border Closures are coming home to roast. You cant close the ability of millions of people to feed their families and justify it that this is for their health against the virus and expect all will be okay. the Costs far outweigh the benefits The result is you couldn’t stop the virus which no one could and people are gonna starve and families are going to drop below the poverty line. Strict border Closure and Lockdowns are catastrophic for Small family businesses and people working in hospitality which is a huge portion of people. Every Person or politician who orders strict lockdowns should only do so if he accepts to receive no salary for the period of lockdown. God Bless the Malaysian people , great people and a great country. Hope they get through this.

  41. Avatar fantasy虚拟世界 says:

    Malaysia is much prominent as a product of british colonisation. It is of a capitalist country in nature and has been following the west in political system, and many other aspects. We saw current government is giving money (at least) to the poor as well as businesses, even though some agree and some not agree. Yet for individual such as politicians, millionaires, billionaires all of them are keeping rich to themselves, it is the ordinary Malaysians who suffer the most. We saw some kind people donate food and daily necessity to the needs in the community. Indeed, never expect politicians and most of the rich to be helpful in this difficult time at this moment.

    Being a father of two grown up children and international student doing PhD in Malaysia I went in to depression and had panic attacks everyday because my data collection in Malaysia was nearly impossible for more than 10 months. I sold my house to complete my PhD because I was told as a foreign student I cannot work and have to do full time PhD. My grants and research assistance job was canceled because institutions stopped funding because of coronavirus crisis. I got approval from government, associations and organizations to do data collection but I cannot go because of full/ partial lockdown for many months.
