Bersih 3.0

Today, I will depart from my normal post and write a little in support of Bersih or Coalition for Free and Fair Elections, something I care about very much as a concern Malaysian for the future generations. 

Today Bersih is having a sit-in at Dataran Merdeka (Independence Square) at 2.00pm for two hours. 

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.

 What does all these tells you?

I salute all of you Malaysians, who participated in the Bersih 3.0 assembly.
