Sorry this is really irrelevant to my blog but seriously, the situation with the Bersih protest’s is ridiculous.
The peaceful protests are supposed to begin at 2pm. It’s currently 1:59pm. At 11am, THREE hours BEFORE the protests started, 236 people had already been arrested, the total now is around 500+. All they’re asking for are clearer elections. What is the government so paranoid about that they have to arrest people before they start protesting?
The bersih protesters have been given the right to protest by the king. its just the stupid, power hungry government that are causing problems. they’re tear gassing people that are trying to get to the location THEY ARE ALLOWED to protest in.
It is sad that democracy does not exist in this country. A protest is what helped Malaysia gain independence and move forward, this one may do the same but it’s a shame that the government is acting this way. the more people they arrest, the better. it just shows how scared the government is and makes them look worse.
