ABU : Much funds are needed to fight UMNO / BN.

Hi. My name is Haris Ibrahim. I am with the ABU secretariat. ABU is short for Asalkan Bukan UMNO.
Or, in English, Anything But UMNO.

ABU is on a mission, on behalf of the rakyat, to remove UMNO / BN from Putrajaya at the 13th GE, and to endeavour to have installed as the new federal government, a coalition that is pro-rakyat. You can find out more about the ABU initiative at our WEBSITE.

We have a secretariat office in Kuala Lumpur with a full-time co-ordinator. And from the secretariat, several campaigns are being pushed to realise the hope of so many in the nation to see an end to the rape and pillage by UMNO / BN, and to bring justice and equity back to this nation, especially for those long marginalised and deprived of the most basic daily needs that most of us take for granted, and far removed from the opportunity of a decent education and economic progress.

These efforts cost money.

And because ABU is not a registered organisation, we are unable to open a bank account in its name to which funds from well-wishers and supporters may be remitted to.

On 2nd August, this year, ABU declared war against UMNO / BN.
The following day, through this blog, I made an appeal for financial help so that ABU may continue this war against UMNO / BN.

As at the time of my writing this, a little over RM44,000 has come in.

We are grateful for this.

Yesterday, RM37,350.00 of that money collected was used to pay for 100,000 copies each of our ABU Stickers, our Mengapa Harga Barang Naik? pamphlet and the Pesanan Tulus Ikhlas Kepada Anggota Keselamatan flyer, most of which should have reached our operatives in 7 states by now.

We need to place a re-order for the pamphlets and the flyer for the remaining 4 states in Malaya and for a special initiative directed to the military and the police. I cannot say more about this at this juncture.
3 nights ago, a critical database was purchased.

The media technical team are now working to develop a software to be used in conjunction with this database for mass dissemination of information to targeted groups, to kick in the day parliament is dissolved.
Several other media initiatives are in the pipeline. As and when they are unleashed, you will be informed.
Additionally, upon the dissolution of parliament, teams will be deployed to go to ground to campaign across the country.

Much funds are needed to fight UMNO / BN.

I am now appealing to  every Malaysian, both at home and abroad, to contribute as generously as you can, to the ABU Fund.
