KUCHING: Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia (SAMM) has denied having anything to do with a planned demonstration that failed to materialise in front of the chief minister’s residence in Jalan Bako yesterday.
However, its co-ordinator Che’GuBard did not rule out the possibility of organising a gathering in the state in future, but it all depended on SAMM Sarawak.
Che’GuBard said he and seven comrades flew down from the peninsula to ‘create greater awareness of the need for Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud to step down’.
“We will have a gathering, but we do not know when and where. The media will be informed after a briefing with SAMM Sarawak,” he told reporters at Kuching International Airport here.
Che’GuBard claimed the movement did not infringe any laws nor put democracy at stake by distributing leaflets.
“Under the constitution, anyone can hold campaigns. We are also in Sarawak to organise small workshops to educate the public with regards to politics.”
He said it was encouraging to see more Sarawakians becoming aware of politics and the latest happenings in the state.
“There should not be any worry about security and safety as we are here for democracy, and not for violence.”
Che’GuBard and his group flew into the state last Friday, and were in Baram and Miri before coming down here.
They are expected to fly home today or tomorrow.
To date, SAMM claimed it has 10,000 members across the country. - theborneopost
