Looks like Astro news can no longer be trusted to keep news channels uncensored. Two parts were edited out, one showing policeman firing on protestors and another, a disgruntled protester explaining the reasons why he is marching for Bersih 3.0.
Al-Jazeera appears to have been affected as well as shown in this video:
This is by no means a validation of Bersih 3.0, since it seems that despite its apparently noble aims, it was poorly organized and there are some huge questions to be answered as to whether the opposition instigated a police response by encouraging the breaking down of the barriers.
and someone who doesn’t take difficult questions very well:
So we the Rakyat have two choices: A government that has lost touch of reality and the people OR an opposition (especially its leader) that resorts to populist and questionable techniques (including flip flopping on a whole bunch of issues)? Malaysia deserves better.
What I propose for Bersih 4.0 is for a peaceful rally and a coordinated singing of everyone present of the national anthem Negaraku (not the Name Wee version please). Thousands of people, one song, a show of patriotism, non partisan and peaceful. Now THAT would be a powerful message. Not this hooliganism or ‘Reformasi’.
