Remembering BERSIH

A fellow blogger once described it as the perfect storm. It was the pioneer rally, asking the government for free and fair elections:

- The use of indelible ink to prevent double-voting;
- Clean-up of the electoral roll;
- The abolishment of postal votes;
- Equal and fair access to national media.

It was also the first time most Malaysians realised what our government was really like and how heavy-handed against those who oppose them in any way.


A year later, we celebrate it.

We didn't get what we asked for, but along the way, we formed a stronger Opposition and have matured politically.

We will take back what is ours one day. But on Sunday, we will celebrate.

No, I wasn't able to make it. But looks like I missed out on some action. :(
