Apparently there's now video evidence confirming that Anwar and Azmin Ali signalled the protesters to breach Dataran. GG.
Inspire and be inspired.

Whether it's true or not, this is exactly why they should've barred these opposition leaders from giving speeches and the like - Ambiga should've been a lot more firm in distancing herself from the opposition leaders this time around. Of course they'd take the opportunity to give anti-government speeches and all.
i just found out that article 10 of the malaysian constitution gives us the right to freedom of speech and expression, the right to assemble peacefully without arms and the right to form associations... at the parliament's discretion. WOW, this system is screwed.
Oh well, whatever, nevermind.
That aside, i really do believe that among those 100k plus plus participants, there are planted agents in it to create provocation and havoc...we cant deny the possibility of this happening too btw.
What anti-Bersih supporters, such as our PM, DPM and the mainstream media were trying to establish are these: (i) Malaysians are absolutely not mature enough to handle large rallies and (ii) bersih is an inherently a violent gathering.
As we have been trying to show: this is incorrect. Close to 10,000 Malaysians maintained their composure for approximately 10 hours, under the hot sun, to rally for what they believe was right. This itself is enough of a proof that they are mature, composed, and they know what they're getting into. The violence at the end was caused by only some group of culprits
At this stage, we don't know who the culprits exactly are. We do not know who should really be blamed for instigating the fight. BUT, we can already, firmly and without doubt, conclude that some people are absolutely guilty. These people are our politicians in current coalition, and the mainstream media . They are guilty of refusing any credit to a 10 hour peaceful protest by 10,000 individuals, twisting the entire event by broadcasting only on the last two hours of the rally, on the small groups of culprits, and extrapolate those events to portray the entire rally as inherently violent. They are guilty of slander and being dishonest to the people .
I apologies for the harsh words, but as usual I am interested to hear your thoughts on this.

If you see me replying, it means I'm bored.
well put. i feel the bersih movement is the trailblazer for what may ultimately become malaysians' active push(versus constant complaining) for better governance in the interest of our nation's future. and so it is inevitable that some will take that opportunity to air frustration about 54 years worth of grievances, even though that inadvertently harms the main point of the whole thing.
twenty years down the line, malaysia may look back at the bersih rallies as the tipping point when malaysians looked at fifty-odd years of hurt and mismanagement, treason and corruption and oppression, bribery and tyranny and said "enough is enough" and took a stand. at least that is my hope.
Oh well, whatever, nevermind.
hope you can explain this
see how badly the police car was injured, can you still shout truthfully with your dear heart, the cops bang the two guys intentionally? this kind of act reminds me of BN's old trick, take a part of the video and create a story out of it. now the oppositions had learnt it too.
