Bersih 3.0: Should Be A Sit-In Demonstration Or Not?


Finally, it happened. Bersih 3.0 took place as described would be happening on 28th April 2012. Bersih 3.0 –  a sit-in demonstration, to protest against SPR and electoral forms.

Many things happened and spread out, including false news on a policeman claimed to be beaten to death. Lucky PDRM issued and twitted the news is a false news.

Another “interesting” news is news spreading that a demonstrator dead during Bersih 3.0 demonstration. Only this time, no names and news given as fast as the news spread out like the last time in Bersih 2.0. I hope, those who spread the news verify the news first, to avoid mistaken identity (if the news is true) or it is a false news too.

In regards to incident that happened in front of SOGO, there was also news spreading that a woman died and the “witness” saw the woman was under the police car. Below, a screen shot forwarded to OnDaStreet:

So, was it true?

Let us watch the video footage till the end, shall we?

So, was there anyone under the car? Let us see astill photo of the incident,,

Was there pool of blood if really there is a people under the car?

Hmm.. How come the car was driven in that manner? It was aired in TV, and I think, the footage is already in the middle, and some smart alec shown in towards the end. So, was the car at speed at first? Was the car hit the people first.. or people hit the car first? Let us watch what PDRM give to us…

Ok.. to me, it is people hitting the car. Not to mention JUMPED on the car. Wow.. Lucky a video is being recorded. If a still picture, the story might be different.

After all this yellowish colourful event, maybe, many have forgotten.. was not Bersih 3.0 supposed to be sit-in demonstration? Let us refresh a news:

KUALA LUMPUR: Bersih 2.0 will hold a sit-in protest at Dataran Merdeka from 2pm to 4pm on April 28, its co-chairman Datuk A. Samad Said said here.

The protest, called Bersih 3.0 Duduk Bantah (sit-in protest), will be carried out nationwide and worldwide to register the disappointment over the authorities’ alleged lack of commitment towards electoral reforms.

Samad, who is the co-chairman, said the protest would be a time for reflection for all Malaysians on the kind of legacy and future they want for the next generation.

Meanwhile, group co-chairman Datuk S. Ambiga said the demands were for the Election Commission (EC) to resign, clean up the electoral process and allow international observers to monitor the polls.

Seeking reforms: Samad (centre) flanked by Ambiga and Bersih committee member Hishamuddin Rais at the press conference to announce the protest.

On the Parliamentary Select Committee’s (PSC) report on electoral reforms, she said some of their recommendations were good but they did not look into electoral fraud.

She said election offences and postal voting were not adequately addressed in the report.

Ambiga said the organisers will discuss with the police to ensure that the protest would run smoothly.

We will be the first to hand anyone who misbehaves to the police,” she said.

Hmm.. ok. What do the portal said? My search shown below:

 

And the result?

Wow!!! Looks like the page is no longer there (at the point of time).

Well, my dear readers, Bersih 3.0 is not a sit-in demonstration at all, not as promised. And I don’t expect Ambiga and friends will hand over those misbehaved to the police.

Well done Bersih 3.0 for promises not fulfilled.

IF it was a sit-in, WOULD the CHAOS happen?

Question on the street: Now all the related parties are more prepared to counter all the spinning by those irresponsible… why still blindly trust one source? Kindly check ALL sources available!!!

  1. bersih was out of hand…dont quite understand why the police car sped up and put so many ppl in danger…but probably with bad intentions, in which case the officer should be prosecuted..Bersih is supposed to be an independent party for clean elections..unfortunately many protesters who dont quite understand have turned it into an opposition vehicle..I support the cause and I too want a clean election, fairer distribution of urban vs rural votes, automatic registration etc…but protesting in this manner is DEFINITELY not the way to get it…no doubt thousands there were not there for the cause but for a party

    1. Definitely, we always want for betterment, but having 100% result is not that easy to verify.

      And of course, in regards to car incident, I verily believe the car was slow, until something happened in between, which lead to that indicent.

      Thank you for your comment.🙂
