BERSIH 2.0 is the Movement of the Facebook Generation


Never has an anti government rally in Malaysia being so well attended by young people linked together in social networks before. I'd like to call them the Malaysian Facebook Generation.

Their linkages inside the world of Facebook and Twitter had formed a formidable group of like minded but brave individuals, to come out and express their dissatisfaction about how the country is being run.

They are, however, green horns to the scene of public protests in Malaysia. Here are a few pointers i'd like to give.

Tear gas only hurt the most when you experienced it the first time. Subsequent inhalation of tear gas hurts less and less.

From the pictures i saw, the flume coming out of the canisters were white in color. That means, the type they used during KESAS demonstration is still being kept in their reserves.

The ones they used for KESAS had green gas coming out of it. People say that smoke is just one notch below cyanide, but what do I know.

Experienced Reformasi veterans told me the acid water used this time is still mild compared to the ones they experienced before.

They say, most of the demonstrators are first timers. They have just experienced the brunt of Malaysian police action in Malaysia. Most Chinese and Indians stayed away from the Reformasi. SO, they missed their chance to breathe chemical gasses and skin irritation from acid water.

Now, they have experienced it, they believe the first timers will come for more.

The Police treatment is relatively milder than the ones experienced during Reformasi. For once, there was no ringing of the bell by the FRU, there was no raising of red flag (which means free for all) by the FRU commanders and the acid water is still white in color. The ones we had to endure was very very yellow and it smelled very bad too.

So, first timers. Consider this your induction experience, for there's more to come. Trust me on this.

Things will get more and more "exciting" after this. For one, there was no free beating done by the FRU this time. A lot of my friends got beaten up before.

Oh, and i remembered the FRU firing high grade tear gas into a closed room in Masjid Negara filled with women and children during the arsenic demo. I know many UMNO members in that room whom has left UMNO for good never to return.

All in all, a good multiracial crowd has given Najib and UMNO more than a red face. It has hurt their popularity so bad, that it will take them more than a year to recover.

I believe, it rules out any early election widely speculated to happen within this year. The debacle of BERSIH 2.0 will cause Najib and Muhyiddin more migraines than usual.

No one will look at Najib as a saviour anymore. Just about everyone look at Najiv with disgust and contempt.

And, if our call is still being neglected, i heard rumors that BERSIH 3.0 will cometh and cometh it will.

I suggest Najib listens to the call of the people. It's just common sense to do so.

Kalau PR jadi gomen nanti, may be ada tuntutan mcm ini juga tapi bukan lagi sake of democracy, tapi agenda liberalism & pluralism. Rasanya, pimpinan PR kena prepare dgn adanya think tank mostly dari ulama komteporari & konsensus. Jgn lupa juga dakwah kpd non-muslim the beauty & very universal of Islam digerakkan secara massa tapi hikmah.

the real tear gas is colorless and a heavy gas.. it will be spread close to the ground... . the white smoke is to confuse people and a lighter one and goi ng up to the air... I had an experience once.. there was smoke but i didn't feel the gas.. nothing.. but at where there is no smoke , i started to feel it...

Bravery and patriotic ?

How about joining the territorial army ?

Those crowds are nothing but annoying, sell-fish, arrogance and idiots ungrateful citizens.

You have issues, solve it in appropriate manner. Playing provocative invoke others to do the same.

If things turns ugly, do you think the REAL PATRIOTS will just sit and watch all these politics clowns ruining this country ?

GROW UP !!

boleh ka kalau PR atau pas sendiri melatih 1 unit macam unit amal yg specialize utk menanggani tear gas dan semburan air asid tu...

buat 1 unit latih mereka betul2, bila ada demonstrasi, mereka akan bersedia di mana2, kasi pakai pakaian lengkap, ada mask etc utk kutip canister tu lempar balik dekat polis/fru yg jahat. pelajari/kaji cara2 nak mengurangkan/menghilangkan kesan dan tau secara mendalam pasal apa jenis gas diguna, cara nak nutralize balik etc etc... mungkin boleh panggil expert bagi latihan.

memang kita dah tau sgt kalau ada perhimpunan dr pembangkang bila2 masa pun kita akan dibuli dgn begitu kejam, tak ada belas kasihan, mentang2lah berkuasa.

mungkin kali ni fru tak pukul org dgn kayu cota, tapi nampak mereka tendang bertubi2 peserta bersih 2.0 sampai x sempat nak bangun.
