Bersih 4.0 - Maria Chin & geng dipanggil Bukit Aman...


Embedded image permalink

Pengerusi Bersih 2.0, Maria Chin Abdullah bersama enam lagi ahli jawatankuasa penganjur dipanggil oleh polis untuk diambil kenyataan berhubung perhimpunan Bersih 4.0 selama 34 jam pada Sabtu dan Ahad.

Menurut sumber, mereka diminta hadir di Bukit Aman pada pagi Rabu.

Selain Maria, enam yang dipanggil untuk memberi keterangan ialah Sarajun Hoda Abdul Hassan, Masjaliza Hamzah, Farhana Abdul Halim, Fadiah Nadwa Fikri, Mandeep Singh, dan aktivis pelajar, Adam Adli Abdul Halim.

FMT difahamkan mereka akan disiasat mengikut Seksyen 120, 124C dan 141 Kanun Keseksaan.

Sebelum ini, sebuah portal menyiarkan berita bahawa Maria ditahan polis pada Isnin berikutan perhimpunan tersebut.

Polis bagaimanapun menafikan berita itu dan menganggap ia berita palsu yang disebarkan oleh pihak tidak bertanggungjawab.

Bukit Aman has summoned Bersih 2.0 chair Maria Chin Abdullah and six others responsible for holding the Bersih 4 rally over August 29-30 despite the event being declared illegal by the authorities.

The seven are to present themselves at the police headquarters tomorrow to have their statements recorded as they are being investigated under Sections 120, 124C and 141 of the Penal Code, a report on Malaysiakini said.

Apart from Maria, the others are Sarajun Hoda Abdul Hassan, Masjaliza Hamzah, Farhana Abdul Halim, Fadiah Nadwa Fikri, Mandeep Singh, and Adam Adli Abdul Halim.

She said she and six others are being investigated under Sections 120, 124C and 141 of the Penal Code.

Section 120 of the Penal Code deals with the concealment of plans to commit an offence, while Section 141 criminalises unlawful assemblies.

The most serious offence of the three however, is Section 124C, which deals with "attempt to commit activity detrimental to parliamentary democracy" and carries a penalty of up to 15 years imprisonment upon conviction. 

The electoral watchdog held the rally in the run-up to Merdeka Day on August 31, demanding for institutional reforms in the country as well as the resignation of Prime Minister Najib Razak over allegations of corruption involving 1Malaysia Development Berhad and a donation of RM2.6 billion that he received in his personal bank accounts shortly before the 13th general election in 2013.- fmt

Story kat SINI dan SINI  

Bersih...

1. Saya hadir dalam tunjuk perasaan anjuran Bersih pada 29-30 Ogos. Ramai yang tertanya-tanya apakah saya sudah jadi penyokong Bersih. Apakah saya sokong parti lawan DAP dan Kit Siang. Ada juga yang bertanya saya sudah
memihak kepada orang Cina.

2. Saya pernah menyatakan demonstrasi jalanan tidak harus diguna untuk tekanan politik kerana ia menjejaskan perniagaan terutama perniagaan kecil dan ekonomi Negara. Apakah sekarang perbuatan saya tidak menunjuk sifat berdolak-dalik dalam politik.

3. Saya tidak setuju dengan tunjuk perasaan kerana ada saluran lain yang boleh digunakan untuk menekan Kerajaan apabila menyalahguna kuasa.

4. Kita boleh buat laporan polis, dengan harapan polis dan Pendakwa Raya akan ambil tindakan, menghadapkan pihak yang dituduh ke mahkamah.

5. Tetapi sekarang Najib sudah bubar dan musnahkan institusi-institusi Kerajaan yang ditugas untuk melindungi hak rakyat.

6. Apabila dituduh telah lesapkan duit Kerajaan melalui 1MDB, Najib serah siasatan kepada Ketua Audit Negara dan Jawatankuasa Kira-kira Wang Negara (PAC – Public Accounts Committee) Dewan Rakyat. Rakyat disuruh tunggu sehingga siasatan oleh badan-badan ini selesai.


 

7. Apabila wang sebanyak RM2.6 bilion terdapat dalam akaun peribadi Najib, dan dia tak dapat menafi duit ini ada dalam akaunnya, dan ramai bertanya daripada mana duit ini datang, dan penjelasan yang munasabah tidak dapat diberi oleh Najib, maka satu pasukan bertugas (task force) dibentuk untuk secara rasmi menyelidik wang ini.

8. Pasukan ini terdiri daripada Pendakwa Raya, Ketua Polis Negara, Ketua Badan Pencegah Rasuah dan Gabenor Bank.

9. Rakyat menunggu hasil siasatan ini. Tiba-tiba Pendakwa Raya disingkir oleh Najib, Ketua Badan Pencegah Rasuah diarah bercuti, dan Gabenor Bank diugut kononnya kerana Bank Negara bocor maklumat. Dan terhentilah siasatan oleh badan ini.

10. Di masa yang sama Pengerusi PAC dan tiga lagi ahli diberi jawatan dalam Kerajaan dan siasatan berkenaan wang 1MDB oleh PAC pun dihentikan.

11. Beberapa pegawai polis dan lain-lain pegawai dipindah ke jawatan lain supaya tidak lagi dapat meneruskan siasatan.

12. Yang ditinggal dan yang baru dilantik adalah orang yang tidak tunjuk minat untuk membuat siasatan, bahkan sengaja menghalang apa-apa siasatan terhadap 1MDB dan duit RM2.6 bilion dalam akaun Najib.


 

13. Semua saluran untuk menyiasat 1MDB dan RM2.6 bilion dalam akaun Najib sudah tidak lagi ada.

14. Sebaliknya Najib dan konco-konconya sering mendakwa duit RM2.6 bilion adalah derma. Tidak pula diperkenalkan penderma, punca kekayaannya, bentuk wang yang diberi, bank yang terlibat dan lain-lain butiran. Sebenarnya dakwaan ini tidak boleh diterima akal.


15. Kepada pemimpin UMNO Najib mendakwa bahawa RM2.6 bilion ini adalah untuk pilihanraya ke-14. Jika untuk parti belanja membeli nasi lemak atau minuman atau sewa kereta seperti dahulu, jumlah ini beratus kali ganda wang yang diperlukan.

16. Tetapi untuk sogok pemimpin dan ahli Dewan Rakyat dengan berjuta tiap seorang, untuk sogok pegawai supaya menipu, besar kemungkinan wang sebanyak RM2.6 bilion diperlukan.

17. Jika Najib menang kerana sogok wang, dia akan perlu lebih banyak wang lagi untuk mengekalkan dirinya sebagai PM dan untuk PRU 15. Dari mana akan datang berbilion lagi jika tidak secara haram. Malaysia akan diperintah oleh seorang Perdana Menteri yang bergantung kepada rasuah. Najib sendiri berkata “Cash is King” “Wang Tunai adalah Raja”. Raja inilah yang disembah oleh Najib.

18. Najib akan nafi tetapi keadaan Negara sekarang amat buruk. Hubungan kaum tegang. Nilai Ringgit dan saham jatuh dengan teruknya jauh lebih teruk dari Thailand, Singapura dan lain-lain Negara. Kos sara hidup melambung naik kerana GST dan lain-lain. Hutang Negara bertimbun dan lain-lain.


 

19. Inilah masa depan Malaysia jika Najib kekal. Segala cara menukar Perdana Menteri yang mengikut undang-undang dan Perlembagaan Negara sudah ditutup oleh Najib. Hanya dengan suara keramat rakyat dibantu dengan undi tidak percaya Dewan Rakyat sahaja yang boleh menjatuhkan Najib dan menyelamatkan Negara daripada perasuah.

20. Oleh itu saya terpaksa menyertai demonstrasi jalanan anjuran Bersih yang bertema singkirkan Najib kerana rasuah, dan saya rayu kepada ahli Dewan Rakyat UMNO dan BN supaya menyokong undi tidak percaya kepada Najib. BN tidak akan jatuh setelah Najib disingkir. BN masih parti majoriti.

21. Selagi Najib berkuasa selama itulah ekonomi merosot, nilai Ringgit jatuh, saham jatuh, kos sara hidup meningkat kerana GST, hutang Negara bertimbun dan tidak dapat dibayar, pengangguran bertambah, berbilion duit rakyat disalahgunakan.

22. Inilah nasib yang menunggu Malaysia kerana Najib. - chedet.cc


Dr M: Why I went to the rally


The March of the Yellow Shirted and Shallow Minded People...

The organisers of Bersih 4 event say 500,000 people participated in the March for Democracy. The exact number is no longer important as everyone could see it was a sea of humanity.

It causes fear in Our Dear Leader Kim Il Najib. 500,000 marchers are dismissed as shallow minded people. The brash and uncouth daughter of the unpolished DPM described the 500, 000 marchers as stupid people. They must be so in her mind as only stupid people can carry out stupid protests.

We salute the right-thinking Malaysians who took part in Bersih 4. Bersih 4 was truly an historic event. Many Malaysians came. All races are represented in the March towards more democracy.

In an earlier article, I gave an exaggerated number simply to emphasize the ridiculous number of 20,000 given by the PM. Yet none disputed and assailed the PM. He lied about the number like he lied comfortably about the systematic villainy he unleashed on the people of Malaysia.

You the wretched of the  earth, the paraplegic, the crutch users, those on wheel chairs and the hundreds of thousands of able bodied Malaysians, but possessed of sound mind, have shown true grit. All are united in the resolve to dismiss Najib and his entire cabinet of arrogant incompetents.

Our country has been severely damaged by this man and his ministers that the only fair and just recompense to us, is his eviction from office. Bersih took place just as we are about to celebrate Merdeka. But has anyone noticed the mood around? The Malaysian Flags are noticeably less displayed.

Are our citizens behaving unpatriotic?

People are not behaving unpatriotic. They are just not in the mood to celebrate merdeka under a climate of economic calamity, under the rule of the tyrannical status quo, under the threats of bully boys using the legitimate coercive forces, under the yoke of continued and systematic villainy.

And people want to defy and rebel against Najib tun Razak who has proven to be the most detested and despised of all Malaysian PMs. Even Dr Mahathir who has been described as super pharaoh in the past was well received.

Why is it that attendance at UMNO sponsored events is always inflated 20 times over while attendance at not for government events is always reduced to 20%? Because the government of the day does not dare face the truth.

We must not forget the other Bersih Rallies in 70 cities around the world. They raised awareness around the word. The whole world sees Najib Tun Razak as who he really is. He is the Cash is King Man. 


 

Have cash will buy loyalty.  And so his loyal sycophants and brown nosing underlings condemned the biggest gathering of pro more democracy in Malaysia. Some ministers pooh-poohed the gathering.

Petty traders complained although I saw business at the Pasar Seni was brisk. Those selling drinks made a lot of business. Those selling t shirts also made a roaring business. The petty traders outside of the Bersih March orbit of course cannot enjoy the business spill overs. But a seller of t shirts in Ampang sold more than 70,000 t shirts at RM20 each

Najib has trivialised the March by Malaysians. He says these people are shallow minded. That is the grossest understatement. Shallow minded people will ignore the falling Ringgit. Our traditional exports have become terribly inexpensive. We have to sell more just to get the usual revenue.

Our intermediate economy is becoming uncompetitive. We are importers of industrial inputs used in production of exports. The expensive imports caused exports to become less competitive against exporters producing own inputs. 


 Bersih 4.0 - Charming and Creative Photo - Protester Fuck by Govt Everyday He Does Not Need Sex

The cost of foodstuffs of which 70% is imported impose terrible pain on people. Shallow minded people will dismiss this. 


Shallow minded people will forgive Najib for the 1MDB cash embezzlement scam. Shallow minded people will not mind the serpentine explanation given by 1MDB people.

Shallow minded people will also not mind the dumb, dumber and dumbest explanation about the RM2.6 billion donation Najib got.

Shallow minded people will not mind the corruption by Najib and his ministers.

Shallow minded people will tolerate bullying and subject themselves happily under the yoke of systematic wickedness.

He did not mind when these shallow minded people voted for him. He did not care when these bangangs, these disconsolate poor or papa kedana, these bangsats, nincompoops voted for him.

These shallow minded people have banded to express the collective resolve by Malaysians to see Najib dismissed as PM. -

Najib nak beli kapal perang pula...



Negara sedang tenat, Najib Razak masih pertimbang beli kapal perang baru yang harganya berbilion-bilion. Mungkinkah beliau sudah dapat penderma baru?

BATALKAN HASRAT PEMBELIAN KAPAL PERANG KELAS MISTRAL YANG DIANGGARKAN BERNILAI RM3 BILION

Saya memetik satu laporan oleh The International Business Times bertajuk “France Russia Mistral Ships Update: Malaysia To Buy Aircraft Carrier”  bertarikh 26 Ogos 2015 mengenai hasrat Kerajaan Malaysia membeli sebuah kapal perang pengangkut helikopter dari Kerajaan Perancis.

Akhbar-akhbar antarabangsa turut melaporkan bahawa Menteri Pertahanan Perancis, Jean-Yves Le Drian bakal mengadakan perjumpaan dengan Menteri Pertahanan, Dato’ Seri Hishamuddin Hussein dan Perdana Menteri, Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak dalam rangka lawatan 2 hari ke Malaysia bermula semalam.

Rombongan beliau akan turut disertai oleh wakil-wakil dari industry persenjataan Perancis termasuklah Dassault Aviation, Thales, Safran, DCNS, DCI dan MBDA (seperti kenyataan rasmi Kedutaan di Malaysia pada 27 Ogos 2015).

Berita-berita ini padan dengan desas-desus bahawa lawatan Menteri Pertahanan Perancis itu adalah untuk merundingkan penjualan sebuah kapal perang kelas Mistral kepada Kerajaan Malaysia.

Semakan mengenai kapal perang kelas Mistral yang dilaporkan secara meluas merujuk kepada dua buah kapal perang pengangkut helikopter kelas Mistral yang pada asalnya ditempah oleh Kerajaan Russia.

Kapal-kapal yang dinamakan Sevastopol dan Vladivostok ini sepatutnya diserahkan kepada Kerajaan Russia tahun 2014 dan 2016 tetapi tergendala apabila Kerajaan Perancis membatalkan kontrak penjualan itu ekoran rekod buruk hak asasi manusia Kerajaan Russia.


 инж 2

Semakan juga menunjukkan sebuah kapal perang kelas Mistral ini dianggarkan berjumlah sekitar USD600 juta dalam tahun 2012.

Mengambil kira kenaikan harga dan kadar matawang terkini (anggaran kos USD650 juta pada kadar matawang RM4 kepada USD1), ini bermakna kos pembelian kapal perang kelas Mistral ini boleh mencecah RM2.6 bilion.

Mengambil kira kontrak penyenggaraan dan bantuan teknikal yang selalunya bernilai ratusan juta, saya menganggarkan pembelian ini boleh memakan RM3 bilion dana rakyat.

Itu tidak termasuk pembelian helikopter yang diperlukan sebagai melengkapkan kapal perang kelas Mistral ini.

Saya menyeru supaya Dato’ Seri Najib Razak dan Dato’ Seri Hishamuddin Tun Hussein membentangkan kepada Parlimen dalam sessi akan datang penjelasan-penjelasan berikut:

1. Kenapa Kerajaan Malaysia berniat membeli sebuah kapal perang yang direka dan dibina untuk armada laut Russia yang strategi pensejataannya begitu berlainan dari Malaysia? Bukankah lebih baik sebarang tempahan kapal baru mesti mengikut strategi jangka panjang tentera Malaysia?

2. Berapakah kos keseluruhan pembelian kapal ini termasuk dengan pembelian helikopter dan kontrak-kontrak bantuan teknikal? Jumlah ini perlu dibentangkan kepada rakyat sebelum sebarang keputusan dibuat.

Pembelian kapal selam Scorpene terpakai semasa Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak menjadi Menteri Pertahanan dahulu telah mengundang pelbagai kontroversi termasuk pembayaran komisen sehingga RM500 juta dan skandal pembunuhan gadis Mongolia Altantuya Sharibu yang masih belum selesai.

Kini, pentadbiran beliau dilaporkan ingin pula membeli sebuah kapal perang yang dibina untuk negara lain semasa ekonomi negara merudum.

Malaysia To Buy Aircraft Carrier...

PKR has questioned Putrajaya's intention to purchase a RM3.5 billion French-made Mistral warship when the country is facing an economic downturn.

At a press conference today, PKR secretary-general Rafizi Ramli referred to a report in The International Daily dated Aug 26, which said French Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian is leading a defence industry delegation to Malaysia on this deal.

The team reportedly arrived yesterday, and would meet Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak and Defence Minister Hishamuddin Hussein.

Rafizi said the French struck a deal to sell two custom-made warships to Russia and delivered them in 2014 and 2016 respectively, but the deal was cancelled due to Russia's dismal human rights record.

Now, he added the French do not know what to do with the two ships and are planning to sell one of them to Malaysia.

"The warship's estimated cost was US$650 million in 2012," he said, adding this was just the building cost.

The full cost, he added, which includes arming of the warship as well as training and maintenance is expected to be around US$3.5 billion or RM14 billion. - mk

Barisan kepimpinan Parti Amanah Negara.

Harapan Baru kini parti politik... ‎

Pengerusi Harapan Baru (HB), Mohamad Sabu hari ini mengumumkan Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah) digunakan sebagai nama rasmi wadah politik HB.

Bekas timbalan presiden Pas yang lebih dikenali sebagai Mat Sabu berkata, HB telah mengambil alih dan akan menjenamakan semula sebuah parti politik sedia ada iaitu Parti Pekerja-pekerja Malaysia sebagai Amanah, dan butirannya akan diserah kepada Pendaftar Pertubuhan (RoS) secepat mungkin bagi mendapatkan kelulusan.

"Kami telah memutuskan untuk muncul melalui sebuah parti politik golongan pekerja...apa pun pindaan nama serta perlembagaan parti akan kita kemukakan kepada RoS dan kemudian akan dilancarkan pada 16 September 2015.

"Dengan permulaan ini, ia sekali gus menampilkan sebuah lagi parti politik Islam di tanah air," katanya dalam sidang media di sini.

HB merupakan platform bagi golongan profesional Pas yang dikatakan kecewa selepas ditolak anggota parti itu melalui muktamar tahunannya Jun lepas.

Mat Sabu berkata, kesemua keanggotaan mereka dalam Pas secara rasminya gugur sejurus HB mengambil alih Parti Pekerja-pekerja Malaysia.

Sebelum ini, gerakan itu berhajat untuk menggunakan nama Parti Progresif Islam (PPI), sebagai nama rasmi parti politiknya, namun RoS menolak permohonan itu.

Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, yang juga Menteri Dalam Negeri, sebelum ini dilaporkan berkata bahawa permohonan itu ditolak kerana Islam adalah hak untuk semua orang yang beragama Islam dan penggunaan nama itu pada parti politik boleh menyebabkan kekeliruan.

Pada sidang media sama, Mat Sabu turut mengumumkan jawatankuasa Amanah, yang diketuai beliau sebagai pengerusinya, Ahmad Awang sebagai penasihat umum, bekas naib presiden Pas, Salahudin Ayub sebagai timbalan pengerusi, Ahli Parlimen Parit Buntar, Datuk Dr Mujahid Yusof Rawa sebagai naib pengerusi, Ahli Parlimen Kota Raja, Dr Mariah Ahmad sebagai ketua wanita, dan Mohd Sany Hamzan sebagai ketua pemuda.

Selain itu, turut dilantik dalam jawatankuasa itu ialah Mohd Anuar Mohd Tahir sebagai setiausaha agung, Asmuwi Ani sebagai bendahari agung dan bekas ketua pemuda Pas, Suhaizan Kaiat sebagai setiausaha organisasi.

Sementara itu, antara bekas pemimpin Pas yang tersenarai sebagai anggota jawatankuasa Amanah ialah Ahli Parlimen Kuala Krai, Dr Mohd Hatta Md Ramli; Ahli Parlimen Shah Alam, Khalid Abdul Samad; Ahli Parlimen Sepang, Mohd Hanifa Maidin, bekas Menteri Besar Perak, Datuk Seri Mohd Nizar Jamaludin, dan Timbalan Pesuruhjaya Pas 1 Kedah, Datuk Phahrolrazi Mohd Zawawi.

Mat Sabu berkata, pihaknya menjangkakan seramai 35,000 anggota akan didaftarkan menjelang pelancaran rasmi parti itu pada September depan.

Dalam pada itu, beliau berkata, pihaknya akan menunggu kelulusan RoS sebelum mula membincangkan dengan DAP dan PKR tentang penubuhan Pakatan Rakyat 2.0.

Selain itu, mereka juga akan melihat perkembangan terkini mengenai situasi di Sarawak sebelum memutuskan untuk bertanding atau tidak dalam pilihan raya negeri yang dijangka dalam masa terdekat.

Tambahnya, buat masa ini, Amanah akan mengadakan kerjasama politik dengan kerajaan negeri Pulau Pinang, Selangor dan Kelantan yang masing-masing dipimpin DAP, PKR dan Pas. - Bernama

Bersih 4: Who is the biggest loser...

The critics say Bersih (more correctly Bersih 2.0) lost credibility because Bersih 4 was “short on Malays”.

Critics say Bersih lost credibility because politicians – opposition politicians at that – dominated speech-making during Bersih 4.

Who are the critics?

It will not do to ask whether the critics were on the ground. To suggest their opinions don’t count because their information was gained from second-hand sources is as silly as suggesting those who’ve not been to Gaza can’t protest against those who oppress Palestinians in Gaza.

What I realised from being on the ground is that you only get a picture of things immediately around you: if you start in Chinatown you’ll think everyone in the rally is from the Chinese community.

What I realised from being on the ground is that you can hardly move during the rally. People are so pressed together that it takes enormous effort to move from one end of a street to another, and sometimes you approach a dead-end and have to change course. 


 

 
What I realised from being on the ground and occasionally being near enough a stage to hear what was being said, is that Chinese politicians deliver their messages in near-flawless Malay to Chinese crowds! (I choose not to say Bahasa Malaysia.)

“Occasionally being near enough” is important. Most protesters wouldn’t have heard the speakers because even state-of-the-art portable outdoor sound systems have limited reach, the crowds are very noisy and people blow vuvuzela horns.

(May the fleas of a thousand camels infest the armpits of those who sell vuvuzela!)


Soon there will be analyses of aerial photos and good estimates of how many were on the streets during the rally. It’s important to note that not all of them were rally protesters and that not all protesters wore yellow shirts.

The analyses will give a good estimate of the total number of people who turned up. 


 

The analyses will not give a good estimate of their ethnic composition. Only post-rally surveys – which will most likely be conducted by the Merdeka Center for opinion research – will give us a halfway-decent measure of the ethnic composition.

I wrote “half-way decent” because from August 15-21, the Merdeka Center surveyed support for Bersih 4 and, on August 28, reported that only 23% of ethnic Malay voters supported the rally.


Pollsters hate to be wrong; I hope Merdeka Center will recognise that any meaningful difference between their “prediction” and the actual outcome may be attributed to the government’s response to Bersih 4 in the week after their first poll.

(I also hope their future polls will be conducted over shorter periods. A week is a long time in politics.)

Regarding ethnic composition, there are other factors to consider.


First, unlike in the past, Malaysia’s purportedly Islamic party, PAS, did not support Bersih 4.
Therefore, members of the Malay community from the East Coast states – which are dominated by PAS-aligned politicians and civil servants – were absent.

I wrote “purportedly Islamic” because I believe a truly Islamic party would have joined others in expressing outrage over calling corruption “donation” and over allowing the accused to control the investigations of accusations against himself.

 In my opinion, next to the Barisan Nasional government, PAS is the second biggest loser in Bersih 4. 

Secondly, many members of the Malay community are civil servants – who were issued with notices prohibiting them from attending Bersih 4 and who are required to attend the government-sponsored Merdeka Day celebrations the day after Bersih 4. In my opinion, the civil service are the third biggest losers in Bersih 4.

Corporations who forbade their employees from attending Bersih 4 are the third biggest losers; the third place is shared with corporations who collaborated with the government to disrupt Bersih’s communications.

Now, a few thoughts about critics who say opposition politicians hijacked Bersih 4. 

 

In my opinion, such remarks are made by critics who are either critical of civil society activists in general, or are new to civil-society activism.

Such critics have no idea how few civil society activists are able and willing to get onto a stage – let alone being capable of rousing a crowd of noisy, pressing thousands.

Such critics ignore the fact that members of the ruling coalition issued warnings that their members who participated in Bersih 4 would be subject to disciplinary action!

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, an Umno member who showed up “to show support” for Bersih 4, may be referred to Umno’s discipline committee.

The biggest loser is the Barisan Nasional government. The people’s vote of no-confidence in the prime minister is loud and clear. 


Will MPs vote out the prime minister? If they don’t they will be the biggest losers of Bersih 4. – Rama Ramanathan,tmi

Here’s Why The Malays Were Not Visible During Bersih 4.0...



The 34-hour marathon is finally over. This is the first time a Bersih rally lasted such a long hour, and easily the most peaceful of all the four rallies ever held, an impressive milestone. Well, there were some provocateurs who tried their luck with “firecrackers” even after the rally was over but was subsequently apprehended by Bersih volunteers.

If the figures released by the organisers are to be believed, the second day of the rally had attracted more people to the carnival-like event. There were 200,000 people on the first day, while 300,000 people on the second. Although we believe there were 100,000 – 150,000 on the first day, there’s little doubt the crazy crowds on the second day was close to 300,000, if not more.


Bersih 4.0 - Second Day Night Crowd - 300000

As a matter of fact, more people were seen scrambling to the rally as the hour closing in to the “Merdeka” countdown. However, since there’s no way to tell if these people were the same people who came back after taken some rest, or was actually a new set of fresh supporters, it’s hard to give an exact figure for the 34-hour rally.

Assuming 50% of participants on day-2 consist of fresh new supporters, that would bring the total of participants to 350,000 (200,000 + 50% of 300,000). It’s absolutely possible that there were tons of new participants on the second day simply because many were afraid the authorities would unleash water cannon and tear gas on the first day itself.


 Bersih 4.0 - Second Day Crowd

Hence, they had chosen a wait-and-see approach. After all, if the authorities have been trigger-happy in launching assaults at Bersih protesters during the past 3 rallies, what is so different and special about Bersih 4.0 that the police would spare their bullets? Well, they must be kicking themselves for not joining earlier because amazingly the police hadn’t fired a single tear gas.

The burning question is: why the police didn’t pick a fight with the protesters this time? Surely it wasn’t Queen Elizabeth who threatens to wear “yellow” again if Najib administration starts attacking the innocent protesters. Perhaps the theory that police attacks only when majority protesters of a rally consist of ethnic-Malay is true after all.


 Bersih 4.0 - Malays Praying

Otherwise, how do you explain the supposedly brutal and thuggish police didn’t attack Bersih 4.0, which was dominated by ethnic-Chinese? If this is so, then it pretty much solves the mystery about the lack of Malays’ participation, especially on the first day. On the second day, Malays’ presence increased to about 30%, from a low of 10% on the first day.

Based on some questionnaires, it seems the Malays were dead sure Bersih 4.0 would see the worst police brutality ever recorded. The fact that military chief General Zulkifeli Mohd Zin had declared that the armed forces will intervene if the government declares a state of emergency goes to show blood could spill on the street, at least that was the perception of the Malays.



In the past three Bersih rallies, the military didn’t involve at all. It was a poker game. Majority of the Malays blinked first and lost, hence were tricked into believing that troubles were bound to happen. The government doesn’t care if the Chinese dominates the rally but has everything to worry if Malays take the lead.

But after a peaceful and happy first day, the Malays were convinced nothing bad would happen hence they decided to join the crowd. However, it was too late to make a bigger impact because most of them had already left the city for the 3-days short holiday, or otherwise had other pre-planned programs.


 Bersih 4.0 - Charming and Creative Photo - Malay Here


Clearly, there wasn’t any plan for a state of emergency at all. It was merely a clever trick to send a simple message to the Malays to stay away from the rally. Of course, the second reason to the low Malays’ turnout was the “boycott” by PAS, which traditionally can mobilise large number of obedient supporters.

There’s little doubt that if PAS have had participated, Bersih 4.0 could easily breach the 500,000 mark. But that would also mean the biggest battle between the police and the protesters. Like it or not, PAS protesters are like walking zombies, and the police hate their guts and courage. It’s a different story altogether with obedient Chinese protesters.


 Bersih Rally - Tear Gas With PAS Supporters

But the most important reason why the Malays were not visible is because of GST. On the second day before our group hit the road again for the rally, we stopped at one of our favourite stalls selling young coconuts. We knew how torturing it was to be under the scorching sun so we decided to “armour” our bodies with coconut juice.

Dressing like minions, it wasn’t hard for the Malay “Pakcik” (uncle) to guess what we were up to. We sat and enjoyed the refreshing coconut juice at the stall, flicking our smartphone for latest news on Bersih 4.0. Then, he sat and chat with us. He complained about new competitors, signalling to two new stalls behind him, selling the same products (*grin*).


 Coconut on Tree

Then he went into great length bitching about how his second son has just switched to a new job because of escalating cost of living. Although the new job pays better, the location is further in Shah Alam. Suddenly, he openly criticised the present government. He boasted that he had attended all the previous Bersih rallies, together with his son, but not this round.

Reason – he has to sell more coconuts now because of GST. He claimed that the (competitors) new coconut stalls were managed by part-timers so he assumed they were trying to make ends meet because of GST too. Because of GST, he is now facing two problems – new competition and the needs to work longer hours to cover his daily expenses.


 Malay Small Business Traders

If his story is true, then it’s incorrect to assume the Malays were cowed by a stronger and united Chinese behind DAP. Perhaps, some may have been influenced by PM Najib’s “bastardization” scary story. But the story from this “pakcik” goes to show that his primary concern was about putting food on the table, than about UMNO going into toilet bowl.

The low income Malays couldn’t join Bersih 4.0 because they’re struggling with skyrocketing cost of living. The middle and high income Malays wouldn’t join the rally because they were dead sure chaos would explode. With PAS crossing over to UMNO’s side, GST and military threat, the sight of Malays taking the lead in future demonstration is over.


  Bersih 4.0 - Sleeping on the Road

When the time comes for us to pay for the coconuts, there was an increase of RM0.50 per piece. When we asked, the “pakcik” smiled and said his supplier had charged him higher because of GST? Heck, isn’t coconut exempted from GST? Well, that depends on whom you ask along the supply chain. - financetwitter


BERSIH rampas Dataran Merdeka...

Himpunan Bersih 4 yang berakhir menjelang berdetingnya jam menanda 00:00 tengah malam 31 Ogos yang membawa usia kemerdekaan ke-58 tahun, tetap dikenang selamanya oleh rakyat negara ini, khasnya mereka yang menyertainya. Himpunan raksasa rakyat itu berlangsung dua hari bermula Sabtu kelmarin.

Himpunan perdana yang berlatarkan warna kedaulatan rakyat itu (kuning) juga akan ditafsir dengan berbagai tafsiran. Ia akan diterjemahkan dengan seribu makna dan erti tersendiri. Dalam terjemahan itu sudah tentu ia subjektif, pro dan kontra. Tetapi mereka yang hadir, yang melihat dengan mata lendir sendiri dan merasai getar kehangatan dan keharmonian himpunan itu, mempunyai pengertian berbeza di antara yang hadir dengan yang tidak hadir.

Mereka yang tidak hadir, atau berada di luar himpunan sepertilah orang buta yang mendengar cerita gajah tentang himpunan itu. Mereka akan membuat berbagai tafsiran dan andaian setiap kata-kata mengenai gajah itu mengikut kapasiti minda masing-masing. Apa lagi yang pesimis dengan himpunan itu akan menganggap bahawa "gajah" itu empat segi atau seperti kepala keretapi logomotif.

Demikian khlifanya orang yang enggan melihat dengan panca indera sendiri dan hanya memerhati dari jauh atau mendengar ocehan media-media PB.

Saya mengatakan sejarah, kerana Bersih 4 membawa ciri-ciri dan mengandungi maknawi dan sir tertentu yang khusus. Ada beberapa signifiken daripada himpunan selama 34 jam itu. Ia amat berbeza sekali dengan tiga himpunan Bersih, 1, 2 dan 3 sebelum ini.

Kandatipun matlamatnya tetap sama untuk menuntut pilihan raya dan demokrasi adil dan bersih ke arah terbentuknya kerajaan yang telus di negara ini. Perlu difahami himpunan itu adalah kesenimbungan kepada Bersih terdahulu. Ia diadakan kerana menuntut terlaksana beberapa tuntutan yang masih tidak terpenuhi oleh pemerintah.

Dan himpunan Bersih 4 bagi saya paling gemilang dan berjaya. Kejayaan simboliknya dengan terampasnya Dataran Merdeka yang dijadikan tapak meraikan sambutan detik 12:00 tengah malam 31 Ogos.

Apabila pihak penganjur acara tahunan itu memindakan sambutan ke Bukit Jalil, atas alasan keselamatan atau apa, ia menunjukkan Dataran Merdeka sudah ditakluki peserta Bersih. Dalam erti kata lain pemerintah mengaku kalah untuk tidak bertewas kekuatan dengan himpunan Bersih itu.

Bersih 4, tidak akan tertitik nokhtah menjelang tengah malam malam tadi. Ia akan tetap bersambung dan muncul apabila diperlukan. Peserta Bersih akan pulang ke kampung halaman, tetapi mereka tetap akan datang kembali bila dikerah dan dipanggil tanpa dipunggah. 


Sambung di sini...







cheers.

Selamat Hari Merdeka...

70,000 at Dataran for grand finale...

As estimated crowd of about 60,000 to 70,000 people have gathered at the the vicinity of Dataran Merdeka for the grand finale of the 34-hour Bersih 4 rally which will end at 11.59pm today.

A heavy downpour earlier in the evening did not deter people from gathering, with many more still making their way to the epicentre of the rally.

As the final programme of the day started at 9pm, Bersih volunteers were invited to the stage to give speeches. Earlier political leaders such as PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli and ex-PAS leader Husam Musa also addressed the crowd.

Both had spoken about the need to force Prime Minister Najib Razak to quit to save Malaysia.

Rafizi even labelled Najib as the the “worst prime minister in our history".

"If we don't remove Najib, more money will disappear," he said.

At the same time, another stage had been erected nearby to get the people to freely express their views.

Several kilometres away at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, Najib in his Merdeka speech which was being telecast live over national television, said street rallies must be rejected as they affect peace and order, and cause problems to the public.

His audience were made up of invited guests, including his ministers and civil servants.

Back at Dataran Merdeka, the thousands of participants in yellow continued to blow their vuvuzelas as their listened to the speeches, but almost all of them agreeing that Najib should be removed for the sake of the nation.

There had not been any trouble at the rally which started at 2pm yesterday. No untoward accidents had been reported, except for a provocative drunk man who had been handed over to the police by Bersih volunteers.

Rally organiser Bersih 2.0 also reminded participants that Dataran Merdeka was strictly off-limits.

“Please help to ensure that no one crosses the barricades.

“Please spread out to the various stages, including those further away from Dataran Merdeka. Crowd sizes need to be manageable to prevent congestion,” it said.

Bersih 2.0 also urged participants to disperse orderly and in a calm fashion at the end of the rally.

“Those in the centre, please allow those at the fringe to disperse first, without rushing and pushing

“Please pick up any rubbish left over from the site.

“Do not stay another night, as there are considerable security risks,” it said. - berita daily

No Malays, or you failed to notice...

The Bersih protest is still ongoing, yet there are already those wondering just where are the Malays since their attendance has dropped to ranging from 10% or less, by some measure.

While political leaders and members of the federal opposition are quickly spinning this fact to "we only see Malaysians" or even "they will appear today", some have already taken it upon themselves to mock the entire race.

Accusations are ranging from the Malays are comfortable, the Malays are privileged, the Malays are cowards and my favourite thus far, the Malays are missing their balls.

Quite humbly, I will just call all these morons as morons because they have obviously failed to notice the fact that Malays were everywhere but they themselves failed to notice.
Allow me to explain.

I was at Nu Sentral yesterday, which borders Brickfields as one of the gathering points.

And while some attendees were wondering where the Malays are, they keep forgetting to notice just who the heck was serving them breakfast if they were in the same mall as I was.

Furthermore, since you took public transport, who the heck do you think was manning the train or the LRT control centre?

Who were the baristas who prepared your coffee while you rushed to charge your phones at the Starbucks?

Who were the waiters at The Chicken Rice Shop, or the Nando's or even the Texas Chicken with the controversial sauce?

And even more to the point, who did you buy your last minute yellow t-shirts from Uniqlo or wherever, just in case that last minute gazetted law was enforced?

More to the point, who were the police officers and the Federal Reserve Unit members currently manning their stations?

Who are those currently investigating the threat made via SMS against Bersih?

In fact, here is another thing you may have failed to notice. From an economic standpoint, the Merdeka Centre survey says that those most disapproving of Bersih, while Malays, are also those earning below RM2,000.

There is already a floating story of how one uncle from Perlis had to spend an entire week's wage just to attend the protest.

Safe to say, the majority of those disapproving or not attending Bersih are those who cannot afford it.

So for those mocking the majority Malay population as balless, spineless, privileged people, shame on you.

Who the heck do you think you are "saving the economy" for? Just yourselves?

It is for those who do not earn enough, who are unemployed graduates who even Tun Dr Mahathir was asked a question about in Pasir Gudang before appearing to have a look see in Kuala Lumpur.

It is for those who cannot take a weekend off to join your protest, especially since most will probably be paid three times their daily salaries due to it being a three-day weekend.

It is for those who have lost their houses and still live in tents in Kelantan and Terengganu due to the floods, are still waiting for their houses to be rebuilt and cannot afford to spare a dime.

Have you forgotten them in your veracity to be gung-ho propagandists?

So for those so militantly supporting Bersih to the point of calling the majority population cowards, you obviously do not know your own country's people well enough.

For those who say it was because of PAS, you also do not know what they had to spend to bus people into the city for the past rallies. Religion and politics may be the matter you think of, but you obviously failed to see the cost and logistics of such an endeavour.

And I will say this once more to all those detractors. While the Malays are poor, they are still the largest voter base in this country for Peninsular Malaysia and Sabah.

While they may not be attending Bersih, I can assure you that they are reading what you say of them on social media and even in the online portal comments sections.

Heck, maybe Utusan Malaysia and Berita Harian will take a page out of alternative media and make an article of all your social media posts for them to read.

Know this too,... for every derogatory statement and comment, and tweet you type, all your detractors, including myself, will be right there to remind the Malays in 2018 – who supported you quietly but could not attend – of what you thought of them just because they missed your 34-hour shindig.

So take this as a warning; if you believe that Bersih is more important than the 2018 general election, continue as is. Keep mocking those who apparently "do not support you by not coming".

But if you believe that the rally is just a start to a marathon which will finally end a 60-plus year ruling streak, then I suggest you shut up.

You keep saying the whole world is watching. Well, so are the Malaysian voters who will determine the next government. Remember that. – Hafidz Baharom,tmi

My observations on the Bersih 4 rally


Mereka Bukan Dibayar Sesiapa,
Mereka Bukan Tiada Rumah,
Mereka Bukan Suka-suka Mahu Berhimpun,
Mereka Berhimpun Kerana Sayangkan Malaysia,
Mereka Berhimpun Kerana Mahu Kerajaan Yang Bersih,
Mereka Susahkan Diri Mereka Untuk Masa Depan Malaysia Yang Lebih Baik,
Mereka Mahu Kerajaan Yang Amanah,
Mereka Mahu Negara Diurus Tadbir Dengan Baik dan Adil,
Mereka Mahu Kerajaan Ambil Kisah Tentang Bebanan Rakyat,
Mereka Membawa Harapan & Inspirasi Setiap Rakyat Malaysia... 

Terima Kasih Bersih 4...f/bk
