Democracy - A Myth?

If you didn't know, yesterday 10th november there was supposed to be a PEACEFUL protest (called the BERSIH rally) in KL about wanting a cleaner and fairer electorial system.

Protestors were asked to wear yellow to show their solidarity.

But look what the police did to the peaceful protestors just because the demonstration was considered "illegal". They sprayed tear gas, water cannons and chemicals into the faces of protestors!!

Watch this video to know more.

Democracy? Think again.

Even the local major newspapers aren't able to report the truth anymore. The rally was considered non-existent by them, if you care to flip the papers today. However, more info can be found at Malaysiakini and Screenshots. Click to check it out!

Anyhow, I'm glad that the rakyat is not afraid to voice out anymore.
