BERSIH 2.0 oppressed by government?

Whether you are interested in politic, you should be concerned about BERSIH. It's a movement to demand for cleaner election processes and procedures. The objectives are as following:

1. Clean the electoral roll, no more buy-election
2. Reform postal ballot, all must be allowed to vote by postal ballot if cannot physically present in Malaysia
3. Use of indelible ink, no more fraud vote
4. Minimum 21 days campaign period, allow candidates to convey message clearly and throughoutly
5. Free and fair access to media, no more Utusan's bias
6. Strengthen public institutions, no more Teoh Beng Hock
7. Stop corruption, no more RM1.8million facebook fan page.
8. Stop dirty politics, no more sodomy no more sex tape.

However, this peaceful rally has been marked as illegal by Ministry of Home Affairs and Polis Diraja Malaysia thereby violated the freedom of assembly as guaranteed by Malaysian constitution, because PDRM has openly declared that no permit will be given to BERSIH 2.0 even before the application is submitted.

The government is obviously adopting a double standards because no action is taken against UMNO youths whom gathered in front of PKR Penang office. Extremists who proclaime themselves as PATRIOT also threaten to burn down PKR headquarter if BERSIH 2.0 rally goes on. Silat guru, Omar Din aka Mahaguru also threatens to wage war against BERSIH activists. Many BERSIH supporters have been arrested for wearing the official t-shirt as PDRM claims it is illegal. There are many more extremists defaming the rally by calling it KOTOR or dirty in Malay, say that it is a demonstration to save Anwar Ibrahim from sodomy charge.

If you are planning to join the rally please be alert as I expect there might be people whom hired to create chaos hiding in BERSIH peaceful crowd. These people are paid to give BERSIH 2.0 a bad name so ban against the rally and any future peaceful demonstration can be justified.
