Old Faithful

This morning, I met with an old Comrade, who has been with the Party for more than 3 decades. He showed me his old card. The yellowed from age card represents his own struggle, being in the Party when DAP was merely a decade old and at a time when it almost felt like the Party will be a perpetual Opposition, and yet still “intact”, albeit tested and crumbled.

This is a sample of the current DAP member card:

This one below is the old member card. Notice the membership number, it’s 3-digits! The one above is 5-digits, membership date is Jan 2008.

This one, the membership date is Jan 1979. Signature was Lim Kit Siang’s, as the Secretary General of the Party then.
