Bersih 3.0? Not again?

After Bersih 2.0 on 9th of July, the organizer is planning for another round of peaceful protest at Kuala Lumpur on 28th of April. Like it or not, Bersih Rally is political and it is pro-opposition.

I am not sure if it is a good idea to go on to the street again. UMNO has experienced it and they are prepared this time. The government is not afraid to allow the assembly after seeing the "mildness" of the way Malaysians protest. In a nutshell I do not see the impact of such act, nothing has changed since people hit the street last year.

Furthermore, the upcoming Bersih 3.0 does not seem to be getting more attention from netizens, unlike the previous Bersih 2.0 where Malaysian netizens flooded Facebook with yellow color profile picture and information related. Maybe it is not "trendy" anymore?

The fact is not only the electoral system needs reformation, but all whole political system. Low transparency, poor accountability and lack of powerful watchdog groups that can question government's suspicious spending and decision making. Non-partisan watchdog group is almost nonexistence. I am looking forward to the rise of such non-partisan that can scrutinize government's activities.
