Who lives and who dies? Should Poor citizens and foreigners just let die by kicking out of the hospitals?

Who lives and who dies?

Should Poor citizens and foreigners just let die by kicking out of the hospitals? 

One Burmese Illegal Foreign worker named Ko Ko Oo, from the ‘rich businessmen’s club’ in KL was repeatedly referred by me for the Myocardial Infarct and later its complications. HKL treated him for emergency and told him to go back for treatment in Myanmar. But his condition did not allow him to take a flight or take the long tough journey home.

He died on HKL ONLY 20 DAYS from the first day of referral. He was discharged THREE TIMES and ADMITTED THREE TIMES. 

Whether legal or illegal, he was working for Malaysian company which is paying tax to the government. If legal he might had given LEVIES. Gov is collecting BILLIONS of levies.

Although we could not blame anyone, government of Malaysia and Myanmar as well as the very rich employer and HKL for his death, HKL is GUILTY of discharging THREE TIMES in less than TWENTY DAYS. After 3rd. admission on the 20th. day he died in HKL.

Note: HKL is charging three times first class fees to foreigners and always dump them in third class. And they used to tell the foreign patients to go back home or postpone frequently their procedures and heartlessly tell the patients that they have to give priority to their citizens. We could accept the fact but telling undiplomentically or rudely or point-blank straight forward is HEARTLESS!

The fallacy of Myanmar military unity

The fallacy of Myanmar military unity

Extracts taken and Burmanized from Suflan Shamsuddin’s article in M Insider

They say that_

  1. when a stick is on its own, it can be broken.
  2. But when many sticks are bound together, they become strong and unbreakable.
  • So for Myanmar military personals or Bamars to be strong and unbreakable they must unite.
  • For if not, then the Non- military or others Ethnic Minorities, Religious Minorities and all those who wish to undermine the Myanmar military and Burmese -Buddhists, will break them.
  • This is what SPDC Generals and others like them peddle to the Myanmar military.
  • What a load of hogwash!

speakers coner hyde park 021105Multi-use spaces, serve a vitally important societal function in that they make it possible for a plurality of people to exercise their cherished rights of speech and assembly. Politics aside, these places also manifest democratic values by allowing street musicians, punks, skateboarders and the homeless to meet one another. They are nothing less than an agent of democracy.
London’s Hyde Park is one such place. The Speaker’s Corner is best known as the cradle of free speech, although one may find those who gather there these days are mostly religious bigots (both Muslims and Christians, plus pockets of others such as Falun Gong followers and Scientologists) or ardent republicans calling for the Queen and her family to pack up and move, rather than die-hard socialists warning against a return of Thatcherism.

Mizzima: The face of Burma’s non-violent resistance

A new documentary by two Canadian filmmakers highlights the continuing, non-violent resistance to Burma’s dictatorial regime by political and humanitarian activists who do so at great risk.
