Why Independence are the best for Borneo-Sabah & Sarawak.

That question could not be more clear, straightforward and fair, a point I am pleased to see has been acknowledged by many commentators and indeed by few international parties, whatever their views on independence itself. There are, inevitably, some voices among the anti-independence camp who have cried foul at the question – but really, what are they afraid of? It seems "they" know they are losing the argument and are now scared stiff of losing the agreement which are well known it is null and void.

But while I welcome the international interest, it is the people of Borneo who need to have their say – so I urge as many people as possible to contribute to the petition we have launched. That is especially important in a discussion about how the substantial body of opinion in Borneo which favors greatly increased powers for independence . It is crucial the options open to people are not constrained by Unitary Nation string-pulling.

The people of Borneo will be in charge. Our future, our resources, our opportunities will be in our hands. Independence will give us, the people of Borneo - Sabah & Sarawak, the opportunity to make decisions in our best interests.
And that means we will be able to make Sabah & Sarawak the country we all know it can be – a wealthier and fairer nation. A country that speaks with its own voice, stands taller in the world and takes responsibility for its own future.
Kindly draw your signature to SSKM petition in support to our cause. This is our rights, pride and dignity. [Please note this is not a petition which affiliated to any party in politics] @ :http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/sabah-sarawak-rights.html

THERE ARE QUITE A FEW OUT THERE WHO BELIEVE SABAH & SATURDAY HAVE NO RIGHT TO GET OUT OF MALAYSIA.

BUT IF THEY ARE PRESSED FOR A GOOD REASON THEY CAN NEVER GIVE ONE.

THE ANSWER IS IN THE UN DECLARATION on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 14 December 1960.

In its substantive law stipulations, the Declaration postulates what may be described as ordering principles, intended to guide the progressive development of international law in accordance with the General Assembly’s own explicit mandate under Article 13, paragraph 1 (a), of the Charter of the United Nations:

- that the subjection of peoples to alien subjugation, domination and exploitation constitutes a denial of fundamental human rights (art. 1);

- that all peoples have the right to self-determination, but that this necessarily includes the right freely to determine their political status and freely to pursue their economic, social and cultural development (art. 2);

- that all armed action or repressive measures of all kinds directed against dependent peoples shall cease (art. 4);

- that immediate steps shall be taken, in United Nations Trust and Non-Self-Governing Territories or all other territories which have not yet attained independence, to transfer all powers to the peoples of those territories (art. 5).


All the above 4 declarations apply to Sabah and Sarawak

1. Both resource rich territories and peoples have been subject to 49 years of "alien subjugation, domination and exploitation"- reducing them to be be poorest "states of Malaysia.

2. Sabahans & Sarawakians should have the right to be free from Malayan colonial domination, to determine their political status and freely to pursue their economic, social and cultural development

3. UMNO BB has used both armed action or repressive measures of all kinds directed against dependent peoples over 49 years.

4. Decolonization of Sabah and Sarawak must begin immediately.
