BERSIH : Coalition for free and fair elections.

Free and fair elections, it is hoped, starting with the elections that is now scheduled for 8th March, 2008.

Don’t believe what the papers tell you about BERSIH.

How did this coalition come about? Read HERE.

What’s not right about our present electoral process? Read HERE.

Hope you have not forgotten 10-Eleven. If you need a reminder, go HERE.

Since 10-eleven, BERSIH members and supporters have been enduring harassment and arrest in their pursuit of free and fair elections.

BERSIH is again taking this message of the need for electoral reforms to the rakyat on 22nd February, 2008.

This time, though, it’s in Kuala Terengganu because, mysteriously, all stadiums in the Klang Valley are booked for 23rd February, 2008, the day this rally was originally plannd to be held in KL. Read about this : k-tganu-venue-for-jom-bersih-bash.pdf

The programme for this BERSIH initiative :

3.00pm : Dialogue with the Chinese community at Kg Batas Baru

5.30pm : BERSIH run at Pantai Batu Burok

9.30pm : Ceramah Perdana BERSIH at Pasar Chabang Tiga

People, the struggle for electoral reforms is ours.

We must rise and stand with our brothers and sisters in Kuala Terengganu to send a message to BN.

Yellow Friday?
