BERSIH3.0:
A CELEBRATION OF UNITY, AN AWAKENING FOR LIBERATION



28 April 2012 shall go down in the nation’s history as Merdeka Rakyat when
300,000 rakyat spoke in one voice to demand a free and fair election. The
women, youth and men of all races and ages who came down in full force were
encouraged by a sense of justice to demand liberation from usurpers. Their
message cannot be mistaken – a free country cannot be enslaved anymore.

BERSIH3.0 represents the hopes and dreams of all Malaysians that the political
legitimacy of any government in the future can only be attained through a
genuine democratic process.

The authority’s response to BERSIH3.0 participants who represent million
others across the country is thus an utter disappointment. It is a classic
statecraft of authoritarian regimes using the state controlled media to turn the
masses who are victims of oppression and brutalities into criminals.

I bear witness to the political awakening of the rakyat as I marched with them
from Masjid Negara. The atmosphere was one of enlightenment, rejuvenation
and hope. It was an exemplary conduct of a peaceful assembly; a celebration
of freedom and unity in the truest sense.

This is the achievement of BERSIH3.0 that will stand the test of time. The
rakyat will commemorate 28 April 2012 as the day Malaysia woke up and
marched for liberation in one voice.
