I wonder will these thugs ever see justice??!? I guess not while BN is still in power!
A ceramah on academic freedom was aborted last night after a rowdy group of youths wrecked and blockaded the intended venue at Kampung Idaman, Klang.
When contacted, Solidariti Mahasiswa Malaysia (SMM) president Ahmad Syukri Ab Razab said the "gangsters" had broken chairs and strewn them in the multipurpose hall before the ceramah began.
"They also surrounded the venue and we were forced to take refuge at a nearby food stall while waiting for the situation to calm down," he said.
However, the group of some 70 people, Ahmad Syukri said, refused to budge, prompting the students numbering, about 15, to lodge a police report at Pandamaran police station.
"We arrived at Pandamaran police station at about 10.30pm, the gangsters followed us and started to gather there with their motorcycles."
The incident was the second time a ceramah was disrupted in Klang, the first being a ceramah by Anything But Umno (ABU) where rowdy youths on motorcycles stormed the venue at Jalan Kebun and reportedly beat up a youth.
‘Hit by stones and sticks'
He said that due to the tense situation, local police decided to escort the students to the Klang district police headquarters for the report.
"Three police cars escorted us in a convoy of five but when we came out they threw stones and hit our cars with sticks.
Thankfully the windows did not shatter but (Kumpulan Aktivis Mahasiswa Independen deputy president) Khalid Mohd Ismath's car was badly dented, but there was nothing the police could do," he said.
The gangsters again followed the students to Klang district police station headquarters and their numbers swelled to over 100, claimed Ahmad Syukri.
"After making the police report, we were advised not to leave the police station for our safety.
"Even at 4am, the gangsters were still outside, we had to escape through another door with the help of local residents," he said.
The students managed to leave without incident and no one was injured that night, said Ahmad Syukri.
The ceramah last night was part of the students' nationwide roadshow for academic freedom. However, this was the first time it has been disrupted.
