Sarawakians For Sarawak

A politically-inclined friend of Sarawak Headhunter has suggested that instead of the potentially divisive slogan of "Sarawak for Sarawakians", a better slogan would be "Sarawakians for Sarawak". That sounds reasonable, especially if it can be used to rally Sarawakians to contribute towards change for the better for Sarawak and Sarawakians themselves.

Let us all contribute what we can towards this rallying call and each in our own way volunteer our services. We cannot expect change if we do not work towards it and we cannot blame anyone else if we sit back and let others do all the work. Every little bit counts and it will all add up.

Think about it and do something about it. Don't just leave it to the politicians and political parties and later blame them for pursuing their own interests - that's what politicians do, unless we influence or force them to change or support those who want change for the better - that's what we can do, and more.

Best wishes from Sarawak Headhunter to all those interested in a New Sarawak and willing to do something to achieve that goal for the betterment of all Sarawakians, irrespective of race or religion.

Sarawak Headhunter will be taking a short break in the mean time, but will be back in the New Year 2009, hopefully with a resolution to do better.

Let's make it better for all Sarawakians, especially the downtrodden, the oppressed and the dispossessed. Out with tyranny, corruption and the politics of feudalism! Let freedom and a new beginning sweep the land.

Sarawak for Anwar Ibrahim is even better. Why so stupid since he wants to be our CM we vote for him.

ANwar for Sarawak Chief Minister. He is the best.

It is actually a good posting that did not deserve the frivolous responses in the first two comments. No meaningful change can come to Sarawak unless Sarawakians become actively engaged in the political process. General apathy is still our prmal weakness.
