[侧眼看世界]有的人死了,他还活着

Obituary : Rest in peace, Ah Tan (1953 - 2006)

I saw the news from blogger friends at midnight - Refomasi Ah Tan ( Omar Tan Abdullah @ Tan Soi Kow/陈信构) had passed away. I feel very SHOCK and SAD. We lost another activist in Refomasi !

Actually, I don’t him personally but we always met each other at the NGO and reformasi activities. I’m very respect to his dedication toward reformation movement in Malaysia since 1997. He can speak a very standard Mandarin (just know that he stayed in Taiwan for quite long time).

Lih Kang said:” 在此,我借花献佛,把臧克家纪念鲁迅的诗-有的人活着,他已经死了;有的人死了,他还活着。,献给为我国社会贡献良多的Ah Tan”( Google Translation: Some were alive, he's dead; Some of the dead, he is still alive.)

Sam Hui said:”Strange but true, I felt like losing someone dear.”

James Wong said:” A Chinese Muslim with a burning sense of justice for all, Omar Tan had contributed the last few years of his life as an active citizen to the historic Reformasi.

Out of sudden, what happen in the past 10 years flash back in my mind …

1997: TomYam, East Asia Financial Crisis; I went to Beijing & Xiamen, China

1998: Dato Seri Anwar was sacked as DPM, Refomasi; I was sent back by Police after I walked out form SOGO with Onion Yong.

1999: General Election 10; Entered University and watching result of GE in front of TV.

2000: Elected as CLS president

2001: Active in campus democracy and campus politics; active in IVC

2002: Active in DEMA; Get injured.

2003: Start working officially

2004: Campaigned for Tian Chua at Batu during GE11. Know Ah Tan.

2005: Do nothing for progressive movement; start blogging

2006: Still do nothing for progressive movement and elected as KL-Selangor Chinese Assembly Youth Committee Member

2007: GE12 ???


Dear Ah Tan, we all would miss you and keep your spirits burning in the young generation. May you rest in peace.

虽然,我并不是很认识 Omar Tan 这个人,我也是在国油双峰塔KLCC的一次“汽油涨价”的集会中有过一面之缘。拜读了S.Arutchelvan,一位人权工作者以下这则的悼念文章,我感同身受。希望 Omar Tan 能够早日安息,社会改革运动就让我们这些还留着一条贱命的同志们一起努力地展开吧!
