Press statement issued  by Dr. Boo Cheng Hau, Johor State Assembly  Opposition Leader and Skudai Assemblyman at Skudai Constituency Social Service Centre, Johor Bahru on 6 July 2015 severely condemning violence and political hooliganism resorted  against DAP Parliamentary Leader Lim Kit Siang and DAP Johor State Chairman Liew Chin Tong at a coffee shop forum held at Taman Megah Ria, Masai, Pasir Gudang yesterday as a cowardice, barbaric behaviour and an insult to the constitutional right of the freedom of speech.

Dr. Boo says he believes that BN is afraid of the truth being told to the people by the DAP,  and the BN and UMNO  forces are trying to stop a series of peaceful coffee shop forum to convey truth to the people by the DAP. The unexpected violent interruption of yesterday’s coffee shop forum organised by the DAP at Taman Megah Ria, Masai proved that BN and UMNO are weary of eroded people’s support towards them after the implementation of GST and exposition of the 1MDB scandal.

Dr. Boo stresses that the DAP will carry on its struggle everywhere through peaceful and resilient  means regardless of the struggles being carried out inside and outside the parliament and state assemblies, in the streets or the  coffee shops with an intent of creating  effective and noble social democratic movements to bring about a democratic change in Malaysia by conveying the  truth to the people of all races and social classes.
Dr. Boo also urges the police to carry out immediate and effective investigations and take severe legal actions in the  court of law against those who intended violent disruption of a peaceful  coffee shop forum without fear and favour.
Dr. Boo stresses that Johor will continue to become a fortress for change. It is UMNO’s  birthplace, and there is a dire demand to topple UMNO and BN in Johor in order to bring about democratic changes in Malaysia. He urges all Malaysian people to unite and fight against  political hooliganism and stand firm behind the reform democratic forces in order to bring about a true change in Malaysia.
