We shouldn’t be allowing the UMNO/BN govt. of the the day to keep on treating we Malaysian as stupid anymore. By observing the happenings on the evening of 9th July 2011 just at this part of K.L alone,Jalan Bukit Bintang where our group of our State DAP comrades and myself assembleb, I can just say, we just cannot afford to keep allowing UMNO/BN controlled govt to go on sloganeering all these years, under Najib administration with 1Malaysia and “people first” rheoretics....so hypocritical.
Why is that this suppose to be a more sincere government that keep stressing concern about the welfare of the people in recent years, did not even not allow a peaceful demonstration to go on even in the Merdeka Stadium ?
Why and what is the UMNO/BN government so very afraid of ?
Looking at the size of the mammoth crowds that come out openly in the streets, from all races, young and old, walking and advancing side by side together, unarmed, never happen before.
On that evening,one can tell all Malaysians are so mature, Why? They did not damage public property, nor littering the streets. These protesters are not all from political parties only, but mostly NGOs, individuals, who felt time have come to change the present system in Malaysia.
The people really want peace, but the government want war against its own people. This gathering is more to peoples’ expressing the eight demands …..for a free and fare election, nothing racial, nothing political and no evil motive behind.
Where the rally would be held is not that important. What is even more important is the abuse of power and the violation of human rights by the Malaysian government to allow BERSIH to have the peaceful rally.
People cannot accept the lame excuses of the present ruling UMNO/BN government. Looking at the mega crowds at these locations, Bukit Bintang, KLCC, Mesjid Jamek , and Pudu Plaza area, planning to move towards the Merdeka Stadium were not allowed.
For just that one to two days, the people had been made to believe there will be loss of business with the BERSIH rally. Common sense will tell, if each person spent on food and lodging alone on that day, a few million ringgit will be spent in the heart of K.L alone!!
But the government directed the police to close all road entrance into K.L. Is this not the police that is causing the hardship and loss of business for the business people in this part of Kula Lumpur?
But no, UMNO/BN choose to manipulate and twisting facts and continue to be arrogant and treating the people as stupid. UMNO/BN old tactics will never work anymore with the present generation of Malaysians.
The main purpose of BERSIH is to demand a free and fair election and just to hand over a memorandum to his majesty the Yang Di Pertuan Agong and even his Majesty hinting the ruling government to be fair with the people.
Najib choose to use the police to attack the people that had for 54 years since, keep voting UMNO/BN into power. Even Hishamuddin had mention possible involvement of the army. Najib had threatened the survival of democracy in Malaysia. Najib had attack democracy in Malaysia, and what a shame!!
Instead of protecting the people and heeding his Majesty’s message, UMNO/BN under Najib chose to handle BERSIH rally in such a manner. UMNO/BN will face the wrath of the voters come the 13th general election, for sure. had brought shame to the nation.
