Let's paint the town yellow!

It has taken me some time to consider this but I have now made my mind up - I will take part in the event!

Yes, Malaysia-loving Malaysians who still think that the tanahair is worth it will be gathering in all major Australian cities. Join us to support BERSIH 2.0 for democratic, clean and fair elections. For a better Malaysia. Our demands:

1. Clean the electoral roll
2. Reform postal ballot
3. Use indelible ink
4. Minimum 21 days campaign period
5. Free and fair access to media
6. Strengthen public institutions
7. Stop corruption
8. Stop dirty politics

For Sydneysiders, the Bersih 2.0 Sydney will take place at Town Hall/Sydney Square at the universally-agreed date of July 9, 2011 (this coming Saturday). The rally will begin at 2:00pm and should go on until 3:30pm. There will be a guitarist and we will be singing the Negaraku, so be prepared to sing along! Oh, and of course, come in something yellow!

My first rally. Do not know what to expect, really, but ooh, excitednya!

Hey cool blog! I came across it through fb's Bersih sydney page.

I'm now an ex-Malaysian technically lol, but I'll still try to make it to the rally to show my support for the cause.

Always nice to meet more Malaysians (or ex-M'sians, I don't discriminate). So you working in Sydney now or something?

Nice meeting you!

Hello there,

Yes, I'm working and studying in Sydney now. Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope to see you on Saturday.

Nice 'meeting' you, too! :)
