I followed this news very tightly online, especially Twitter. I did not join though, that might be one of the thing that I most regreted about too. I has the impulse to go down Kuala Lumpur on Friday night, but after thinking twice, I don’t want to jeopidise a lot of thing, especially since I’m a married man with process on-going.
Anyway, what I wanted to say is the media, the real media in Malaysia. It sound so much like China nowadays, a communist or something.
China Press night paper came out with a picture of FRU firing tear gas with people standing on opposite. The headline? “Where is the peaceful gather?”. The picture clearly shows that FRU firing, there is nothing happen, no tyres burning, no nothing, just tear gas fired by the FRU, and the headline pointing to the people who sitting and standing in the opposite? What is this news?
Repeat it and it will become true
I finally get this idea already. I was having a drink at around 5pm with a friend. The TV1 news keep showing a marquee at the bottom, starting with “Perhimpunan Haram: Seorang pemimpn…”. The line keep starting with “Perhimpunan Haram:”.
Somehow, with just following #BersihStories hashtag in Twitter, it gives me a clearer picture of what’s going on. The real spirit of 1Malaysia does sound much much better than any other occasion.
This BERSIH has becoming a whole World thing, most corner has a BERSIH rally. This beg the question of, why in this democracy Malaysia cannot has a rally? I hope the interview doesn’t come with an answer like in 2007.
