Built in 1958, our Taman Merdeka Negara (Taman Tunku), together with Chin Woo Stadium (1953), the Merdeka Stadium (1957) and the Stadium Negara (1962), constitute the 'Rakyat's Property' for public use, enjoyment and reflection that represent the commemorative legacy of our pre-and post-Merdeka history. Collectively, the hill with its park, stadiums and surrounding communities, was once a sustainable civic space as a whole.

During the Budget 2011 Presentation, Prime Minister of Malaysia, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razak announced the RM5 billion Warisan Merdeka development in three phases over 10 years, starting with the 118-storey Menara which occupies the site of the Taman Merdeka Negara(Taman Tunku) and National Heritage Sites area(Merdeka Stadium & National Stadium) . The construction and ownership of the structure for the usage of offices, shopping malls, hotel and luxury condominium is undertaken by Permodalan Nasional Berhad(PNB).

We, the rakyat, are disgusted that not only will our public space be stolen from us but that the proposed structure and the accompanying development will forever change the historical and cultural landscape of the Merdeka Heritage and history of the nation forever.

DBKL served the public notice on 19/6/2013, public and owner must submit their objection by 2/7/2013. Click following to read the notice

建于1958年的国家独立公园(东姑公园),连同精武体育馆(1953),默迪卡体育馆(1957)和国家体育馆(1962)构成了一处让公众享用,属于大家的人民财产,这地方与周边历史社区也记录着我国独立前后的历史,是深具纪念意义的历史遗产。

2011年的财政预算案中,马来西亚首相拿督斯里纳吉宣布将耗资五十亿零吉打造独立世代计划,将在未来十年分三个阶段进行。首阶段将在国家独立公园旧址及国家文化遗产(默迪卡体育馆,国家体育馆)建造一栋118层楼的独立遗产大厦,为办公楼,购物中心、酒店以及豪华公寓之用途,其建设工程和所有权都属国民投资机构(PNB)拥有。

人民对此感到厌恶与谴责,不单我们人民的公共空间被偷走,还有这项计划的建设以及工程的进行将会永远改变这个地区的历史文化面貌,以及这个国家的历史。

Dibina dalam tahun 1958, Taman Merdeka Negara (Taman Tunku), berserta dengan Stadium Chin Woo (1953), Stadium Merdeka (1957) dan Stadium Negara (1962), membentuk ‘Hartanah Rakyat’ untuk kegunaan dan kenangan orang awam kerana tapak-tapak ini mewakili warisan peringatan sejarah sebelum dan selepas Kemerdekaan. Secara kolektifnya pada suatu ketika dahulu, bukit ini dengan taman, stadium-stadium dan masyarakat sekelilingnya merupakan ruang awam secara keseluruhannya.

Semasa pembentangan Belanjawan 2011, Perdana Menteri Malaysia, Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak mengumumkan pembangunan Warisan Merdeka yang bernilai RM5 bilion akan dibangunkan dalam 3 fasa selama 10 tahun, bermula dengan menara setinggi 118 tingkat yang akan terletak di tapak lama Taman Merdeka Negara (Taman Tunku) dan kawasan Tapak Warisan Negara(Stadium Merdeka & Stadium Negara). Pembinaan dan pemilikan bangunan inidijalankan oleh Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) akan untuk digunakan sebagai pejabat, gedung membeli-belah dan kondominium mewah

Kami, sebagai rakyat, amat kecewa kerana ruang awam ini telah dirampas daripada kami dan cadangan struktur bangunan dan pembangunan akan mengubah landskap sejarah budaya tapak ini dan sejarah negara buat selama-lamanya.

    4. 独立遗产大楼申请土地转商用 民间组织下周呈函市政厅反对

      吉隆坡市政厅公告,市长经已接获国民投资公司(PNB)申请把摩天楼工程涉及的土地,从公共空间转为商业用途。这意味着,若没有人反对,工程即可动工。

      以捍卫国家独立公园委员会为首的非政府组织,联同受影响地主与在野党代表,今午在隆雪华堂召开记者会,揭露摩天楼工程的最新争议。

      他们在联合声明中指出,吉隆坡政府是在本月16日至19日之间,在默迪卡体育馆附近竖立告示牌,也同时在4家不同语文的报章刊登同一份通告。

      这份通告申明,市长已收到一项申请,要求修改默迪卡体育馆一带的建筑图测,同时把相关土地用途从公共空间转为商业用途,以兴建摩天楼计划。

      这个计划包括了118层办公高楼、2座40层服务公寓、1座40层楼的酒店,附有7层购物商场和备有5层地下层停车场,以及两个体育馆,即默迪卡体育馆与国家体育馆。

      市长在通告中限定,相关受影响的业主必须在通告刊登后的14天内提出反对,而市长将在14天后定下时间与地点,以聆听这些反对的原因。

      针对此,捍卫国家独立公园委员会重申强烈反对这项计划,并将会根据市长的通告,在下周一(7月1日)到市政厅呈交反对公函。

      捍卫国家独立公园委员会将在明日起3天内,收集签名与网上联署,要求全民一起反对摩天楼计划。他们也希望,全吉隆坡市民与马来西亚人可以在周一上午11点,一同到市政厅表达反对。

      “我们要求,立法单位发此通告须以收集民意和公众参与为前提。任何攸关吉隆坡的都市规划与发展计划,吉隆坡市民皆有权表达意见。我们提醒吉隆坡市政厅不得忽视公共咨询及民主审议过程。”

      委员会强调,公共空间本应为公众用途,以供国人使用,若想变更作商业用途,必须征询民意。

      “我们反对土地用途转换与当地的发展蓝图,因为这将永久改变国家的历史与文化景观。为了下一代利益,三项设施即默迪卡体育馆、国家体育馆与独立公园,理应被翻新及保留成为国家文化遗产。”

      Affected landowners that include schools, religious sites, rows of shoplots and cultural associations – represented by 25 organisations – make up Pertahankan Taman Merdeka Negara (PTMN), a heritage rights group that’s urging the government to halt the project.

      “We’ll send in our letter of objection on Monday, 1st July to DBKL,” said Haji Ishak Surin, the chairman of PTPM. DBKL’s deadline for objections is July 2.

      “We’re also collecting signatures from the public to protest this project and we’ll continue to do so until the project is cancelled,” said Surin.

      Malaysia - PNB's 118-storey tower to impact heritage sites and neighbours @ Fri Jun 28 2013

      PNB's 118-storey tower to impact heritage sites and neighbours Two Malaysian landmarks, the Merdeka Stadium and Stadium Negara, will be eclipsed by a 118-storey tower that will affect the landscape and lives, a group of activists and politicians said in Kuala Lumpur today.

    6. Mega-tower project set to kick off, groups vow to resist

      “In town & country planning, open space would be reserved for the people to enjoy & for recreation. A development project should enhance the people’s quality of life but not the other way round,” said PTMN in a statement.

      “The 3 sites - Stadium Merdeka, Stadium Negara & Merdeka Park (Tunku Park) should be restored undisturbed & preserved as a collective national heritage for the sake of future generations.

      The groups reiterated that the project would change the historical cultural landscape & history of the nation forever.

      PTMN vice-president Thasleem Mohd Ibrahim & PKR Batu MP Tian Chua have vowed to hold a big rally if the authorities insist on going ahead with the project.

      The groups will be organising an online petition & collecting signatures for objections at various locations in the city next few days. They will be submitting their letter of objection to DBKL on 1/7/13.

      Because it is my city and the capital city of Malaysia, where the city mayor is not democratically elected and the result is the city is not planning democratically and the deal is always between the government and corporation minus the people.

      A global city must have more public spaces and green areas. KL is already a global city. So why develop it further???? We could end up living in an extremely congested city like Bangkok.
