Bersih 3.0: It Should Have Been A Peaceful Protest




I was following up closely with the Bersih 3.0 so-called peaceful protest. The mission of this protest is to gather and sit at the grounds of Dataran Merdeka (Merdeka Square). But since the court has ruled that Dataran Merdeka is banned, so the instruction is that the people march as close to the Dataran Merdeka as possible.

Until...

 And....


 Which resulted in....


  1. I am very disappointed and sad. It was a very emotional day for me, to see the rakyat of Malaysia rise up. 
  2. I am sad to see that the Opposition Leaders using Bersih3.0 as one of their political tool and give speeches.
  3. I am disgusted to see that people chanting about Datin Rosmah and other offensive words.
  4. I condemn those selfish radicals who broke into the Dataran Merdeka barricade and triggered the police actions. 
  5. I pity the others who attended the protest for a good cause.

I almost saw a tiny ray of hope on Malaysia. Now, my hope is shattered.

hang in there, i still saw some hope.

To be honest, I was ready to see what you saw, but We should not be shaken by it.

WE should be strong individually. every change comes from ourself.

I was expecting improvement, that no violence. For once i thought Malaysia can have a peaceful protest. Maybe i was disappointed because i put too much hope.

100k and above people showed up, we are naive to think that it would be peaceful.

but if this was the level of violence out of so many people.

what i would say is, it really could have gotten worst.

some other countries would have went to mayhem with just 50k

my point is, pls don lose hope. hope is always there

Dear Anonymous,
I have to delete your "PRO UMNO MCA ANTI BUDDHIST IN MALAYSIA" comment because it is irrelevant to my blog topic and sorry, i am not interested in any political parties in Malaysia.

Thank you.

THis is my 1st time here on ur blog ^ ^ . Actually when the political parties get involved in this event, what happened is somewhat i already expected. I joined the 1st Bersih where we all marched to the Istana Negara & watched how Anwar hijacked that March, come Bersih 2 the same thing again. I'm not against politician to join Bersih but please leave your political ideology at ur HQ. We all rakyat Malaysia here not ur party tool & stooges.
