The more doubletalk from Najib and his goons, the bigger the turnout...

We had Bersih 1.0 and followed by Bersih 2.0. Now that we are at the doorstep of a mammoth Bersih 3.0, and yet the authorities are blind to the signs on the wall; they have clearly refused to understand the change that is transforming the nation.

When you resist change, change will walk over you. That is the basic tenant you learn in business schools and in political science.

The very political party coalition - BN, that all through the Mahathir-regime proclaimed incessantly about "paradigm shift" is now adamant in the face of tides of social change.

The very current BN-led government that only recently blared about "tranformasi" is suddenly going reverse-gear at high speed.

Champion of doubletalk, Why?

There is only one explanation. That is, BN is under attack. Despite dishing out all kinds of cash donations to the rakyat; despite launching all kinds of agro-based projects from cows to 'kambings', BN is fearing its own shadows.

Despite so many and incessant "feel good" stories about BN being painted in the main stream media everyday, and the way the BN leaders are being supported by huge crowds at every meet-the-people sessions, why is BN fearing the rakyat now?

That then explains why all the hurdles and conflicting statements against Bersih 3.0 are coming from BN-quarters and patronisers of BN masters. That also explains why all kinds of spanners are being thrown into the works to frustrate Bersih 3.0.

If BN is the preferred and blue-chip political party for the majority, no body is going to walk the streets or sit-in on padangs on 28 April. If BN is the heavenly sent protector and savior of Malaysia, nobody is going to even talk about Bersih 3.0.

The people always win - remember that!

People are not fools. But BN and their leaders always think the rakyat are short of common sense. They always think that the rakyat are gullible fools. They can only look at the rakyat with little respect for the people's IQ and EQ.

And so, by denying Bersih 3.0 the Freedom Square and dictating all sorts of stumbling terms, they expect the rakyat to curl their tails behind their butts and stay home.

BN must realise that there is no nation in the world, no political party in the world, no battalion in the world, no single leader in the world who succeeded in going against or thwarting the citizens' final decision that enough is enough.


So why does the BN continue to frustrate the rakyat's Bersih 3.0 for a peaceful sit-in? Does it not realise that by making it difficult for the rakyat, only more citizens will now want to join the expression of people-power?

Well BN must learn and learn fast. If that is the price it wants to pay, then it pays. But if it wants to get wiser, it should just count on all the "feel good" stories reported in the main stream media everyday about BN's great success stories, sit back and sip juice and chew almonds. What is there to worry lah?

Remember BN masters - your enemies are not the citizens of this land. Your enemies are your own people within your walls who are cheating, stealing, corrupt to the core. Get rid of them first and the rakyat will have Sudah-Bersih 4.0 for BN.- J. D. Lovrenciear, Malaysia Chronicle

Pak Samad mahu kekal di Dataran Merdeka...
Pengerusi Bersama Bersih 3.0, Datuk A. Samad Said secara peribadinya mahu mengekalkan himpunan 'Duduk Bantah' diadakan di Dataran Merdeka, 28 April ini.

Mengulangi pendiriannya berulangkali, beliau yang lebih dikenali sebagai Pak Samad, menegaskan beliau dan Datuk S. Ambiga mempunyai sikap yang sama berhubung perkara tersebut.

"Setakat ini, Ambiga dan saya mempunyai sikap yang sama, iaitu mahu 'Duduk Bantah' ini diadakan di Dataran Merdeka. Tapi, kita ada jawatankuasa yang lebih ramai yang perlu dirujuk.

"Saya secara peribadinya ingin mengekalkan 'Duduk Bantah' ini diadakan di Dataran Merdeka. Sikap saya konsisten. Saya harapkan seluruh jawatankuasa masih bersedia untuk kekal di situ (Dataran Merdeka)," tegas beliau pada sidang media Jawatankuasa Bersih 3.0, di Dewan Perhimpunan Cina, pagi tadi.

Himpunan itu, tambah Pak Samad hanya menyaksikan hadirin duduk sahaja selama dua jam, dan ia tidak akan mendatangkan sebarang ancaman keselamatan.

Sementara itu, Ahli Jawatankuasa Bersih 3.0, Dr Subramaniam Pillay berkata jawatankuasa itu akan mengadakan mesyuarat tergempar malam ini bagi membincangkan lokasi alternatif 'Duduk Bantah' itu.

Ia susulan penolakan Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) untuk membenarkan himpunan itu diadakan di lokasi bersejarah tersebut.

"Kita akan bermesyuarat malam ini bersama semua gabungan NGO. Mungkin esok akan ada keputusan konklusif daripada kami," kata beliau.

Bagaimanapun, tegas seorang lagi jawatankuasa pemandu, Maria Chin Abdullah, DBKL tidak menawarkan alternatif kepada Bersih dalam surat penolakan tersebut.

Sambil menegaskan Dataran Merdeka adalah 'milik rakyat', Maria berkata tidak ada sebab mengapa DBKL menolak program tersebut, sedangkan pelbagai program diadakan di lokasi tumpuan pelancong itu.

Antaranya program McDonald's Olympic Day Fun Run pda 17 Julai 2011, Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2011 (26 Jun 2011), BN Youth Ride Fest 2012 (17 dan 18 Februari 2012), World Kidney Day Run 2012 (3 Mac 2012), Nestle 100 Years Celebration (18 dan 19 Mac 2012) dan Konsert DiRaja (21 April 2012).

Minggu lepas, DBKL menolak permintaan Bersih untuk mengadakan himpunan di Dataran Merdeka atas alasan ia bukan satu acara nasional.-harakahdaily
