Some food for thought:
- Why would the Federal Government fear it's citizens requests for a fair and free elections?
- The Federal Government says Bersih does not pose a security threat but the Mayor of Kuala Lumpur says it's a threat and refused to grant permission to use the grounds.
- The Bersih organisers just wanted to do a peaceful sit-in protest for only two hours. The Kuala Lumpur City Mayor rather lock down all the roads leading to Datataran Merdeka for 72 hours!
- The police has given the nod to Bersih assembly but at the same time got a court order to bar the people from assembling at Dataran Merdeka.
