It should now be even more clear for everyone why the leaders of Dong Zong want to have that rally in front of Parliament on Sept 26.
Those who have not read this NST report today should do so now
And the latest that I heard is that the Chinese educationists opposing the current Dong Zong leadership are to organize their own rally as a counter-protest if Yap Sin Tian and the gang are to proceed with the one in Parliament.
So, it's going to be the real Chinese educationists who are fighting for the survival of the Chinese education system in this country, backed by the traditional Chinese community, against those who also claim to be Chinese educationists, but with vested self-interests who are fighting for their own survival via control over Chinese school boards, backed by mostly banana-type Chinese-born anglophiles. (...that's a bit too long one....well, never mind )
Now, that the battle line had been drawn, it's up for members of the Chinese community to choose which side should win this one.
This is actually going to be the real battleground between DAP and MCA before the general election.
Whom ever win this fight, will win the Chinese community's support.
As per the NST report, DAP vice-chairman Tan Kok Wai was quoted as saying that the party will back Yap Sin Tian and gang. He said DAP will support the Dong Zong-initiated rally at the Parliament as they were, according to Tan, "fighting for a genuine cause".
