A date to remember: July 22

SUPP Secretary General, Datuk Sebastian Ting who is also the State Assemblyman for Piasau reminded Sarawakians not to forget the most important date July 22 which is Sarawakians own independence day.

He said the other two important days are August 31st 1957 Independence Day for Federated States of Malaya and 16th September 1963. Malaysia Formation of Malaysia.

This is history where all  Sarawakians must remember to understand where we are today. The most important for us, he said, is our own Sarawak day while the second day, September 16, 1963 is the formation of Malaysia and the other is August 31st, 1957.

Today marked a day of our own self rule which the awareness was started by the late Chief Minister, Pehin Sri Adenan Satem.

Sarawak should, he added, never forget too, to remind in harmony and respect each other despite our diversify races and religion. It is something that as Sarawak we have to educate the young to continue to remain as a big family.

Although, he said, Sarawak is part of Malaysia, we all must look after ourselves.
