1M Malaysians Reject 100-storey Mega Tower

Malaysians saying no to the RM5-Billion 100-storey Mega Tower proposed by PM Najib in the 2011 budget. Malaysia needs better education, better health care, better public transportation, safer neighbourhood, cleaner water, but not taller building. We dont need another white elephant!

"No Mega Tower! This is a national unity movement!"

This has got nothing to do with race, religion, politic or money. It is all about humanity, the earth and its worth. Rejecting this idea only proves that we know the better ways to help people with RM5 Billion and that we still care about our land and its condition. We only have 1 earth... and we have too many people who need help.

Proudly Malaysian WITHOUT the Mega Tower!

Call for NATIONAL SERVICE! They will hold a 48-hour 200,000-strong Mega Demonstration on facebook from Sunday 12am to Tuesday 12am. Change your FB profile picture to one of anti-mega tower demonstration (if you dont have one, please find it at the album there). This is peaceful demonstration. So, please restrain from abusive behavior and report any agent provocateurs. Your country needs YOU!

These are the few pictures regarding this serious matter. I do think RM5 Billion should serve better purposes.

You are mistaken. The 100 storey tower is going to be built not by using government money but to be built by PNB. PNB will use money from its investors and share holders, not government money. There were many opposition when the petronas twin towers were built, but look at it now, It is fully rented out and occupied. The owner of the towers is making hell of a lot of money. Many locals and tourists visit and spend their money there. It contribute to improve the country's economy. The 100-storey tower will be the same. Why are people so negative in their thinking ? When the Penang bridge was going to be built, many people oppose it. Now a second bridge is needed and is to built for the use of the public.

Thx for replying bro. Like they said earlier in this post, its's not about who provides the money or where the money comes from. The matter is the '5 billion' that will be used for this mega tower. I do think this '5 billion' should serve better purposes. They should invest the money to people like us. The people who really need it in terms of many field and occasions.

Yup, KLCC is fully rented and occupied. But by who? Capitalist. Rich people getting richer. The owner of the tower is making hell of a lot of money? Others? I cant's see a building or actually buildings since it is a twin tower like KLCC contributes to improve the country's economy. I'm not against this thing 'improving the economy' but have a look around through this country, it's missing something. Solidarity and unity.

The second Penang Bridge? Why not? Did I mentioned about opposing it? It will be build for the sake of public usage. As for it is a good thing.

We have too many people who need help. For God sake please spent more time with us and I believe you'll see the problem. The gap is getting bigger and bigger between up there and down here.

Thanks in advanced for replying this wahai saudara Abdullah. :)

Why do you expect people to give you money ?. You should work hard for what ever you want and not just for other people to hand you gifts. The giving hand is better than the receiving hand. Of course the rich gets richer because they work hard and make their money work hard for them too. Don't you know that 90% of the PNB investors are small ordinary Malays and Bumiputras like you and me, but they save their money in unit trusts (Saham Amanah) so that they can get their dividends later. And this RM5 billion project will give them good returns = Profits = keuntungan. You have to open up your eyes and mind and learn more about the business world, and not just studying alone. Studying is one thing good for all of us, but we have to learn how make more money, not just from having a salaried job alone, but also by having multiple sources of income. I doa that Allah will bless you all and open up your mind more.

Please have a look at the pictures I embedded in this post. Did I ask for the money? Maybe yes and maybe not. Like I said earlier, the money should serve better purposes. I really think the money should help poorer and homeless people. People who needed it the most. People DOWN here are working very hard. How hard? Hard enough to fill their empty stomach. See the main problem here? I don't to talk further about this PNB stuff or any else. The only matter that I care is how this 5 Billion can serve better purposes rather than build a mega tower and gives profit to certain people.

These people don't even have a house, a place to stay and food to eat but you expect them to invest in Amanah Saham Bumiputra?

Yes, I'm still a student and I may no nothing about business but I experienced how hard it can be when dealing with financial problems. I do think rich people should help poorer people, as simple as that. Thanks for your prayer man, I appreciate it a lot.

Where are the pics ? I could not find the pictures. People do contribute to zakat, and the zakat is supposed to go to the poor. Other rich individuals and companies do give help to the poor in Malaysia. Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat do give out help. there are many other charity foundations and charity programs (on tv etc) that are for the sole purpose of helping hard core poor. You may suggest the names of these poor peole to these organisations and insyaAllah they will be helped, if they have not been "found" already.

The pics are there bro, the ones in black n white. Alhamdulillah, thanks to them, poorer people got what they need. But not all of them. We still have homeless peole, people living under the bridge, sleeping in walkways etc. People who cant afford to have the proper education.

I do hope this serious matter, the poverty itself should be 'taken away' by the help of people UP there.

Yes not all the homeless people are helped. But the "up people" are doing as best as they can. Haven't you read in the news that people under the bridge are being helped. Only a few days ago it was reported that they were given a temporary shelter at the Youth Hostel at Jalan Kampong Atap in KL. Later on one of the couples was united with her mother - this is a case of daughter running away from mother for some reason or another. May I ask you something ?. What have you yourself done for these poor people, a real tangible thing that you have done so far, other than posting on blogs and trying to put up facebook pages to oppose certain projects. Hopefully you are not one of those people who talk only but never do anything. You have to walk the talk. Or jangan cakap tak serupa bikin.

The idea of giving temporary shelter at Jalan Kampong Atap is awesome. I heard it on the news. They will be given a workshop to teach these people to survive or at least get a job. I do hope this will be the headstart to build more temporary shelter all across our country.

What have I done for these poor people?
Before I further my study, I work as a teacher near my home for a year. I was paid more or less around rm500 monthly for all the work. I also gave free tuition during holidays. I was also the football coach for this private school. Bought them to other schools just for friendly matches using my own money.
At that school, all teachers there are encouraged to give all they can to support these kids. And I'm proudly to say I was part of them. During my semester break, I'll spend some of time with those kids. It's been 3 years knowing these awesome kids yo!

Have you ever heard of Kechara Organisation? I already registered as trainers or teachers to that organisation. Currently they are working hard near Sunway, Subang and around KL. Hopefully they will spread this good thing all across the country.

When I was at secondary school, my friends and I worked on a newsletter and few zines just to create this awareness. We spread flyers during gigs. We switch zines among ourselves, from northern to southern. Yeah, we only managed to do that since we were still young.

I'm just a mere young student, have nothing to give and provide. Got enough money for myself. Hopefully I'll have enough money and power to help others. Sooner or later.
