Bersih 2.0- The Post Mortem

Don't call or even labelled yourself as Malaysian if you haven't heard a thing call Bersih 2.0. You can choose to care less about it, but still it is the most talk about issue currently. Well, as people might already know, Bersih 2.0 is a rally of unity which demanded the government to give the people what they want, in this case, fair and clean election. I know its kinda late to make a review about the event but i gotta get something out of my chest anyhow. Same old question arise everytime a political issue been asked upon, where do I stand between both side? my answer, will alway be the same, EITHER ONE, I'M NEUTRAL!!

Back to the matter in hand, the Bersih 2.0 rally. Frankly speaking, Yes I do like the idea of Bersih 2.0. An organisation which fight for the fairness in election. It is a good, nice wishful thinking. A democratic nation without a fair election? better about to call it an authoritarian administration right if there's no clean and fair election. So Yeah, I do support the idea of Bersih 2.0, but not the method taken by them to achieved their solid goal. A rally, it is what it is, a nuisance, public disturbance and many more which it been called. Yet Again, if you want to grab the attention of everyone, even the world, you gotta go big or go home, that's why instead of any other method, a street rally seems to them as the best approach to achieve it. No Matter what, it's does seems unhealthy, disturbing but violence is indeed the best method to get what you want.

Based on every source that is written and read by me, it seem that one conclusion can be made, Bersih 2.0 is indeed a clean street rally, up until there's involvement of self-proclaimed group "Patriot" and yes, the authority. If they just let them march toward the end, nothing will happen, but a blockade cause a lot more problems than its settled. Take other country which had happened to handled street rally cases, some may be ugly, but some are not as bad as it sound. The presence of authority forces in those rally are to control not to block the rally. Yes, the force are asked to do what they'd done, but yet again, without it, Bersih 2.0 will remain as clean street rally, nothing more.

just in case: as stated in the Federal Constitution, Article 10 clause (a) every citizen has the right to freedom of speech and expression, clause (b) all citizens have the right to assemble peaceably and without arms, clause (c) all citizens have the right to form associations.

So tell me, what did went wrong with Bersih 2.0 rally?

p/s- There's no exact numbers been stated, but some sources claimed that the Bersih 2.0 rally is joined by almost 20000 people, from all races. and more than 178000 people joined Bersih 2.0 facebook page.That is unity if you ask me.
