Reading bersih.org’s website before it was pulled down gave me the impression that there’s going to be a big mess, guess the dispersion technique today was effective. Some (~20?) were caught unfortunately. Also heard that tear gas, chemical-laced water was used to disperse the crowd earlier. Here’s the news video from Malaysiakini, Anwar focused.
How will SPR reflect on this? Forget what the king and royal assembly will do in the first place. We know that’s not going to make a difference the existing bodies / systems remain status quo. The game hasn’t changed much. Opposition has to drum up to the elections, and get a clearer mandate. But when the system is jeopardized, i.e. someone in elections committee play cheat, then all these are not going to lead to tangible changes.
Anyway, looking for kaki who’re interested to take a week long leave for next year’s election. We go kampung by kampung (hopefully before the gas subsidy is removed/revised) to go listen lecture, vote then balik. On?
Update more footage yey! Al Jazeera:
