The DAP organising Secretary and candidate for Serdang, Mr. Lim Kit Siang, today issued the following statement (16.12.68):
The MCA President, Tun Tan Siew Sin, has issued a directive to all MCA members to resign from all protem organisations of the Merdeka University project, or face party discipline.
It is clear that Tun Tan Siew Sin and the MCA, who claim themselves to be the sole champions of Chinese language and education, have received an order from the UMNO not only to oppose the Merdeka University project, but to wreck and destroy it.
The Alliance are worried at the wide support the Merdeka University project is receiving among the people. They have therefore decided to do everything they can to prevent the Merdeka University from succeeding.
Tun Tan has ordered MCA members to resign from all Merdeka University preparatory bodies or face party discipline. Continue reading Siew Sin’s directive to all MCA members to resign from all Merdeka University preparatory bodies
Speech by DAP Candidate of the Serdang State By-Election Candidate, Mr. Lim Kit Siang, who is also the DAP Organising Secretary at a public meeting at Puchong Balai Ra’ayat on Sunday, December 1, 1968 at 6 p.m.
The Tamil primary school in Puchong was burnt to the ground yesterday. The school, which was built in 1947, had morning and afternoon sessions, and had classes up to Standard Five.
At the last general elections, the Alliance, and its candidates, new M. P. Mr. Michael Chen, promised to build a new school building for the Tamil primary school. But up till yesterday, when it was burnt down, no plans to fulfil the Alliance election pledge was made.
Now as the primary school had unfortunately been burnt down, I urge the Alliance government to immediately build a new Tamil primary school so that the students can continue schooling when the new school year begins in early January. Continue reading Tamil schools

For the first time in the history of our country, there is a national political movement which stands for cultural democracy for the people of Malaysia. This is the Democratic Action Party.

We believe Malaysian culture should come about through the free and equal interaction and interchange of the various cultural streams in the country, and not through the imposition of one culture over the others.
