Catholic Herald Faces Possible Ban

From malaysiakini: Catholic weekly in quandary over permit

So, Big Brother is finally making his move. A local version of Martin Niemoller’s quote:

First they came for the journalists, and I didn’t speak up because I was not a journalist,
Then they came for the judiciary, and I didn’t speak up because I was not a judge,

Then they came for the Opposition, and I didn’t speak up because I was not the Opposition,
Then they came for the Hindus, and I didn’t speak up because I was not a Hindu,
Then they came for me, and by that time, there was no one left to speak up.

Let this not be our sad scenario in the not too distant future. The Herald’s annual permit expires in 2 weeks. Time to make some bloody noise. Pray. Tell others. In times like this, “silence is not golden; it’s being an accomplice to a crime”
