We stood up for Bersih

Bersih 3.0 was a roaring success.

I was at the masjid Jamek area from 12 noon till about 2.50pm. I left  after Anwar and Ambiga gave speeches on top of a makeshift truck. I missed out the action in the later half when tear gas was fired around 3.15pm.

It was a massive crowd. A crowd that is made up of the of the middle age, the old, the young , men and women, boys and girls. A  crowd that is made up of Malay, Chinese, Indians. A crowd that is made up of people wearing yellow, green and other assorted colours.

It doesn’t matter that people do not know the person around them. All came with the same purpose and all came with the same mind — That is to ask for a free and fair election.

It was supposed to be a sit in. But except for those in the side roads where there were space to sit or squat, around most of Jalan Tun perak there is only standing space, so much so many find it impossible to sit down.

So we all stood. We all stood up for Bersih – a clean and fair election in mind.

The crowd was peaceful. People greet each other even though they do not know the person.

In that instant  and in that sea of yellow and green, all are brothers and sisters. Brothers and sisters with different skin colour , with different background, but with one purpose in mind.

This is people’s power. This is democracy. (more pictures and video later)

    I paste here what i wrote in R2W :

    When I exited Puduraya pavement, there are already thousands that either stand or walk along the road lead to Dataran Merdeka, I light up a cigarette and stared at the blue sky, the copter rotor sound was pretty annoying, but slowly fading, bit by bit I started to hear the chanting of “hidup hidup” followed by “bersih bersih”, “hidup bersih”, and getting much clearer and louder when I walked closer, the chanting stop, and heard another tune ‘play’ by the crowd…bersih bersih bersih ole, bersih bersih bersih ole….i joined the crowd.

    I saw Azmin, I saw Ambiga, I listened to her speech, I sang along with the crowd NegaraKu, but it was just too congested and stuffy and I am not that young anymore, I have to get out, and it took me more than 20 minutes to walk through the human wall and finally returned to a spacious site, I took a light meal and decided to call it a day, I walked back to the direction of Puduraya, unexpectedly an odd smell permeated into the air, and not sure why tear started to flow and I thought there was onion vipors from the kitchen, but it getting worst and someone alerted me that the police started to fire tear gas. I covered my nose with a cloth, and breathed through my mouth, I feel sad and angry, many already dispersed, is this necessary? Who must be stupid?

    PS/ Hsu, are you alone, i thought i saw you.

    ya, i went alone from my clinic at around 12pm. But I met a number of friends and even bumped into a classmate of mine who so kindly gave me a bottle of water. One of the Bar council members on duty was also a Gerakan member from Penang.

    Talked to a number of people, and many really showed their hatred. When 2 police trunks went by slowly through the crowds, they were booed and given the thumb down sign.. It shows the sentiments of the people, and if the government does not heed the need for a clean election, they will be doomed..

    My wife and I drove and parked opposite Pudu bus station. We arrived late 2.15pm from Seremban, by then a good crowd had gathered at Dataran Maybank. We were both dressed in yellow and I can tell you the feeling what we both experienced was better than all the medicines any doctor can prescribed. The crowds were peaceful and there was mutual respect and understanding amongst strangers. We took lots of videos and pictures, at least I have something to talk about when I am old with my grandkids. The “Arab Spring” has arrived in KL. We make our way to Dayabumi and there we saw the FRU trucks and riot police formed a line with their masks on and baton ready. Again, we took pictures and we then heard someone from Bersih asking everyone not to cross a imaginary line. We moved sideways along the river bridge near Central Market. At about 3.40pm thereabouts, we heard a bell ringing and we saw the barrier police moving backwards, much like the waves retreating. We naively thought maybe they have allowed us to proceed to Dataran, within seconds, the water cannon trucks started to move and open up firing the colored chemical-laced water. I can’t understand why they did it, it was unprovoked. Everyone was calm, taking pictures but the FRU was just too trigger happy. Within a minute or two, they started firing the tear gas canisters. One of the canisters hit the roof of central market. The crowds move away quickly, in the process, my wife and I was caught with a whif from the wind blowing in our direction. I have no experience ever with tear-gas but I can share that it was very painful to the area around our eyes and our skin immediately felt a strange funny sensation. Tears welling up and we managed to take shelter under the big trees at Central Market. Two complete strangers came to wife’s help and pour their water into our towels and it was a relief to the eyes. They even ask if we needed salt but we declined. We then walked briskly into the lanes behind Petaling Street where many Bersih people have gathered, we heard they fired tear gas at Dataran Maybank areas too. As I have first hand experience now, I declare Bersih 3.0 and anti-Lynas gathering a great success. I am looking forward to Bersih 4.0 now. We need to pressure these corrupters until they get out from Putrajaya! Syabas everyone!!

    Nick,
    The police shot tear gas because they claimed that a few people crossed the Barrier. I just had a chat with a Bar council member, and they thought that those few might be agent provocateurs.. Why the need for tear gas after enacting Peaceful Assembly Act? It is just contradictory.

    Dear Dr. Hsu, the FRU had every intention to use all their arsenal at their disposal at the slightest provocation. If not, why come in battle gears? I came “armed” with my sunglass, a water bottle, a cloth for my sweat, wearing a cap to shield myself from the strong sun and a handphone. I think majority were like me. So, why the need to show strength? We are peaceful and unarmed. To me these are signs of a bankrupt and dying regime.

    Looking at the crowd today, I estimated about 100,000 turned out. Ambiga said there were 250,000. She may be right , because I was only at the Majid Jamek area.

    If that is so, then BN is doomed. Knowing Malaysians, for everyone who turned out, there would be many more who supported the cause but chose to stayed home.

    I spoke to a number of Malay elders, they came from all over the country. If election is clean, BN will never win..

    Hsu, I don’t think there are any provocateurs, if you talk to them (I use to drink with them), you would know who ‘they’ are, ‘they’ are prepared, the police know this as well, to disallow the march into DM already an indication clash will happen, both sides are ready.

    The crowds were mainly 1) Bersih 2) Anti Lynas 3) PAS 4) PKR 5) For the sake of fun. DAP supporters are mostly from 1) and 2), so not hard to guess who ‘they’ are. However I don’t blame them, the reason to disallow us to march to DM is absurd, it is purely political. What else can we expect?

    For the first time, I decided to go down there, and I was there. I met people like Malik, the Deputy Chief Minister of Penang and Segambut MP,

    Dr. Hsu, I can tell you very sure, agent provocateurs were there to create chaos. I think this is very silly of Najib’s strategy. Rakyat are very, very angry with Umno-controlled government for FRU rampant shooting of chemical laced water and canister bombs. I kena those as well, but lucky me, a Malay offerred me water, mask and salt.

    One thing I noticed, why this Bersih 3.0 ‘Duduk Bantah’ protest can be peaceful elsewhere in Malaysia and overseas but not in KL? We have the answer, don’t we? When will they be remorseful? Upon judgment day?

    All in all, rakyat are awakened. We were there not as Chinese, Malay, Indian or whatever, but as True Malaysians.

    It’s worth my time there. Such experience and the ‘feel’ can never be bought by ringgit and sen. At least I am part of the event that might see the change of regime. This change is very real now.

    Apparently or he being silly. He doesn’t knows the saying, “if you cannot beat the crowd, join the crowd”, and the crowd down there were a very huge one.

    People can’t sit or squat, but can just stand. Imagine when FRU started shooting, how can people disperse at ease? Some were being pushed against the wall. LRT Stations closed. People were panicky and started to force-lifted up the sliding fence of Masjid Jamek with the LRT staff look on from inside. So, if FRU shootings was for the purpose of dispersing, why closed the station?

    Immediately, I walked to Plaza Rakyat LRT station, but found it closed as well. At last, I have no other choice left but to walk back home. Many elderly rakyat were in pains and tears resting at road sides. I offered them some bananas and comforted them the best I could. Just think how will they vote this 13th GE if not vote ABU?

    Lucky me, I got a lift from a fellow Bersih-ian while walking pass Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall. My family was so relieved that I was back home ‘kicking’.

    I have no second thought participating Bersih 4.0, if there is one in future. Bravo to all who made this Bersih 3.0 a success.

    Truly this gathering of Bersih3 is a historical moment for the people of this nation. Showing solidarity, comradeship, and unity of purpose, they indeed walked their talk. As they gathered in amazingly orderly, peaceful manner, they could be even included in an international record of a peaceful sit-in. But out of the corner of the crowd sparked a ‘flare’ and it broke into ‘flame’, as tear gas cannisters were shot. An Australian foreign observer too witnessed that. There were also reports of people been assaulted by the blue uniform guys, and the receiving end were also newspaper reporters and cameramen and bystanders.

    The protesters had achieved their purpose – a resounding call for a fair and just electorate.

    Will the authorities pay heed to this call, which is loud and clear throughout the nation and throughout various cities around the world? A friend in Paris posted his Bersih Tshirt and the Malaysian flag photo against the Eiffel tower.

    In perspective, an aerial photo of yesterday, showed that all the major roads leading to the Dataran were choked with people in yellow, green and myriad colours. It gave a picture of a flower strewned path that symbolises peace, solidarity, and hope for a just and fair future. One up for the people.

    Hey Dr. Hsu,
    (1) I saw the phone scrambler coming in.
    (2) A new batch of FRUs came but this time, better armed. In fact this batch were loading the tear gas canisters and equipping the shields.
    (3) The police were all called to assemble aka end of picnic (many were sitting by the coffee shop, by the shade, under highway, trees, passing food around.) Most were young policemen.
    (4) At this point of time, i sent a message to tell my friends, time to run as it looks like the use of tear gas is inevitable. The crowd was still singing with joy.
    (5) People started cheering and moving forward. I was told that the people were allowed to enter the barrier. Fact check Malaysian Insider livefeed, there was an update which says something along the line of “Police allowing us through”.
    (6) A few minutes later, all the FRUs were armed and the water truck was positioned. It became obvious that a showdown was inevitable (to my surprised).
    (7) Shots were heard. Knew that tear gas were being fired. People started running away. Thankfully the other group of FRUs waited else we would have >10k casualties. The policemen were all cheering. Then they marched towards the crowd.
    (8) 30 minutes later and they were still firing. I didn’t know much about the violence at this point except for my friends around telling me people getting injured. Kudos to all our volunteer doctors!
    (9) Saw the police indiscriminately arresting supporters wearing Bersih shirts at Dataran. Those supporters were mostly dazed. Guess they were the front of line. People of all races, ages, and even ladies!
    (10) It’s quite obvious that this is a set up to promote the peacefully rally as violence to the police(gasp!). Immediately you could see all the news updates including the online portal, with selected quotes of bersih leaders about violence by protesters. The alleged victim are the police. The Government has not learnt that in the age of the internet, truth will prevail. So the people are disseminating new information everyday, as new facts and pictures from all angles pointing to this conclusion of an entrapment.
    (11) This will backfire severely to the government. As in Bersih 2.0, many independent voters in Bersih 3.0 were asking where is our 1Malaysia PM. The lack of leadership is appalling. It also seems like the government came out with this plan from Hollywood movies! Real life is no conspiracy.
    (12) Most importantly, as an unintended consequence of the action; a movement had started. When dealing with crisis, politicians often debate whether a protest is political or is it a movement. If it’s the latter, we’re f**ked! I believe Bersih is now a movement. People came expecting peace. I think the tally should be about 200k people.
    (13) The government will be forced to delay their election plan. More so when within a week to two, the people will acknowledge the truth that a peaceful protest became violent due to actions taken by the authorities.
    (14) Finally, Bersih 4.0 is inevitable because it has transient beyond politics (due to our PM showing a lack of leadership). The ruling elites will become more frightened and thus more drastic decisions will be made from now on. As a famous Chinese saying goes, “May we live in interesting times”…

I was at Ipoh on 428 and joined the peaceful assembly at Polo Club. It was so peaceful despite virtually with no police force, only few normal policemen were there. It began at 2pm and dispersed at 4pm. Peaceful assembly is a right enshrined in our constitution.

What am i trying to tell you guys, is why we must create a havoc situation like this in our beloved country? How can you, Dr Hsu take this rally the same as what are going through China movement? This is Malaysia, a beautiful and democratic country. What we all Malaysian want is only to live peacefully and harmony together. Yet, your ideologist, makes it the same as what are going through China.. It is really disappointment,since you said i am a racist, but your statement much more showing that you are the racist one. For example, why you all chinese people prefer to talk using chinese or english language,in some ceremony, in this blog also, rather than using bahasa as your common dialect? In fact,there is also chinese people who can’t even talk in bahasa. As for malays, since the bahasa melayu is the official language in this country,it is not a problem for them if they can’t speak in chinese.

    Whether you do realize it or not, all this chaotics things of bersih doing on 28 april 2012 has become a shame to our country. Why can’t you all demonstrate in peacefully,rather than creating chaos? What objectives did you get from this stupid action??

    The hatred on the faces of these people as you say were a manifestation o that hatred they have always had in them. Malaysia has 27,000,000 in its population and that is a diverse group. Thus far they have by a large majority claimed government through the Barisan. The vast majority are an intelligent lot and peace loving. They are prepared to accept the gains made by their government over the decades and be grateful for it. Greece, Italy, Ireland, Portugal and Spain are bankrupt. The US has a total of 15,000,000 homeless as a result of Ronald Reagans policies first then the financial markets collapse. Ireland and the UK are seeing the return of the IRA with the discovery and detonation of a 600 pound bomb last week. It was perhaps the 6th such discovery over the past 4 months.

    The rest of us are not stupid enough to know that government cannot be changed through allegations that lossers like Bersih cannot prove. Th Chinese have always harboured a hatred in their hearts against the Malays and Indians. The Tamils have always demonstrated an idiotic slave mentality running after the loosers.

    Ambiga and Anwar have no proof of their claims ad neither have you Dr. Hsu. If you do there are many amongst us who will gladly support you and take the election commission to court if the proof that the elections were not free and fair.

    see: http://www.takemon.wordpress.com

    If the elections were not free and fair and if Ambiga and Bersih and the PR were honourable people, they would not have taken up government in the 5 states the opposition won at the last elections. Why? because the elections according to them were not free and fair. They are the most dishonourable people seeking to grab power on behalf of the Chinese like Lee Kuan Yew ddid in 1965. No thank you.

    Many of us, in fact the majority would prefer to be “second hand” under the Malays than to be “equals amongst the Chinese” if their idea of equality is what Lee Kuan Yew and the opposition in Malaysia practice.

    UMNO was very surprise to lost the 5 states during the last election. Our Gigi Mentri and was very confident to be the Taikoh of the richest state. When they lost, they quickly tried to destroy the “evidence”. Now UMNO wanted to win again this time and they can undermine by tilting the football field or using a bias umpire.

Saya dan ramai rakyat turun padang pada hari Sabtu lepas tidak bawa parang, pisau atau senjata-senjata yang polis ada. Saya hairan mengapa kamu kata orang macam saya yang buat kacau? Kami cuma hendak kerajaan pimpinan Umno itu adakan pilihanraya-pilihanraya yang BERSIH dan adil. Itu pun kami sudah beritahu Umno sejak lama lagi sampai tidak boleh tahan lagi sehingga terpaksa turun padang. Apa yang Umno takutkan? Hendak menang pilihanraya juga mesti menang dengan cara yang betul. Setuju?

    Setakat ini sajalah saya dapat tulis. Harap, kalau ada masa, saya akan membalas komen kamu yang belum saya faham dengan teliti. Kalau boleh, balas apa yang saya tulis sini, dalam Bahasa apa yang kamu suka atau fasih. Pada saya, kalau seseorang tak fasih dalam Bahasa Melayu, dia bukan rasis atau tidak patriotik, tetapi kerana kegagalan sistem pendidikan negara. Setuju?

    BN actually lost the popular votes in Peninsular Malaysia, but still win more seats than opposition.. You can say Opposition wins despite the unfair system..If the system was fairer, it would not be 5 states, but more.

    Tunggu-tunggu durian tak jatuh. Biarlah saya beri komen seterusnya pada komen kamu itu.

    You commented, “As for malays, since the bahasa melayu is the official language in this country,it is not a problem for them if they can’t speak in chinese.”

    Kalau begitu, biarlah anda cakap Melayu sajalah. Ini bukan masaalah saya jika kamu pilih begitu. Tidak hairan saya mengapa sesetengah orang Melayu tak fasih Bahasa lain. Bukankah ini kegagalan sistem pendidikan negara?

    Oh ya, adakah anda boleh cakap Cina? Emak kamu ada ajar kamu? Kalau tidak, rugilah kamu. Bandingkan kamu dengan saya, ibubapa saya sama bangsa, tetapi saya boleh cakap dan tulis Cina, Melayu, Inggeris, Hokkien dan sikit-sikit Kantonis. Jadi walaupun pendidikan negara secara keseluruhan gagal, tetapi jika kita tidak angkuh dengan pendirian ‘it is not a problem for them if they can’t speak in chinese’, bukankah lebih baik bagi kita pada masa kelak?

    You commented, “Whether you do realize it or not, all this chaotics things of bersih doing on 28 april 2012 has become a shame to our country.”

    Tentulah saya tahu. Huru-hara yang telah berlaku kerana keganasan polis-polis diraja itu sememangnya membawa malu kepada negara. Kalau polis-polis tidak ganas tetapi sebaliknya bertindak profesional, huru-hara tak akan jadi. Malu kepada negara pun tidak akan jadi. Bukan?

    You commented, “What objectives did you get from this stupid action??”

    Bersih 3.0 belum lagi capai objektif lagi selagi kerajaan pimpinan Umno masih lagi angkuh membersihkan proses dan sistem pilihanraya. Tetapi, pencapaian Bersih setakat ini ialah rakyat Malaysia berbilang kaum dan ugama sudah memahami apa objektif Bersih lebih lanjut lagi, dan saya pasti rakyat akan undi secara ABU pada PRU ke 13. Fahamkah anda apa itu ABU? ABU disini bukan apa yang dipanggil emak Cina itu. Ia bermakna ‘Asal Bukan Umno’ secara ringkas.

    Jadi, bila saudara gaban dapat memberi komen apa yang saya tulis disini? Saya masih tunggu durian jatuh dari pokok. Banggalah saya jika saudara dapat balas. Boleh tak, gaban?

    The last photo shows a suspected Vehicle Mounted Cell Phone Jammer.
    As cell phone jamming devices comes with 3 – 4 antennas.( for different mobile frequencies)
    It is not a Google Cam Vehicle (for sure).
    Normally such equipment is to protect the bomb disposal specialist. Incase the bomb is armed by cell phone signal. From the photo supplied, it looks like that particular setup should be pretty able cover a jamming radius of 100-250 meters .
    If they messes up the jamming power, it will affect pace makers and a host of hospital equipment malfunctions.
    Under the telecommunication act , it is illegal for any parties to use, possess, operates and import such devices. The usage of such are exclusive to the bomb disposal squad and are found in military hotspots. Such as in Yala Thailand.
    If such devices are used by the authorities on BERSIH day.
    All affected mobile users will be able to sue the govt.

    Maybe that fellow is in jamban till never read my comment in Bahasa Melayu. But, I don’t really expect much from them, really.

    Another point, due to large number of police without identification on their uniform, I wonder if they ‘outsource’ brutality acts to gangsters and Mat Rempits.

    Racist….outsourced to Perkasa, Pekida, celups
    Violence……outsourced to you-know-who
    Now police brutality…

    These need to be stopped, through clean and fair 13th GE.

    Dr, I was there almost the same time, walking from KLCC to Jamek with the crowd. Too bad we didn’t meet up. I also left about the same time as I was recuperating from an appendix operation, I couldn’t stand the heat and with overcast sky. I took a bus back to Ampang Park.
