IRON resolve. Classy. Principled. Compassionate.
BERSIH 2.0 on July 9th will be remembered for many things for the thousands who turned up despite the Fear Factor. Still buoyant over his ridiculously roundabout route to the foot of the stadium's hill, JAYANATH APPUDURAI shares with us his scrapbook of that haze-tinted day
As promised the “lockdown” was comprehensive. They were determined to deny the Rakyat the right to peaceful assembly!
So they thought they had the Rakyat ‘snookered’!
But the Rakyat had other thoughts!
We will not be intimidated… We will have our “Walk for Democracy” come what may!
So the People came in all the diversity our bountiful nation is blessed with…
This lovely couple epitomized the spirit of the silent majority….
And he walked for all those who for whatever reason stayed away.
It did not matter if there were 6000 or 50,000! The Rakyat have spoken – we do not fear the tear gas, the water cannons or the barbed wire! We will have our version of “Freedom Square”.
And the rain was not going to stop us
From making our stand at Merdeka Stadium!
And who better to do it with than our very own ‘Tagore’. Folks, it was just awesome! It was a soul-enhancing day! “We want free and fair elections, Thank You.”
