BERSIH 3.0: Dataran Merdeka venue rejected
The coalition for clean and fair elections, BERSIH, revealed today that Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) has rejected their application to make use of Dataran Merdeka for their 'Duduk Bantah' protest sit-in event scheduled for April 28.
A scan of the rejection letter by DBKL to BERSIH 2.0 chief executive Maria Chin Abdullah was published on the official BERSIH Facebook page Monday afternoon.
The letter stated that DBKL would not approve the application as it was unsuitable to the DBKL-regulated uses of Dataran Merdeka.

According to the letter, the use of Dataran Merdeka as a venue was only allowed to 'national' events such as National Day, Federal Territory Day and other similar events.
The 'Duduk Bantah' this coming Saturday is the third BERSIH event, following the BERSIH 2.0 rally last year which saw an estimated 50,000 demonstrators take to the streets.
BERSIH co-chair Datuk A. Samad Said declared at the 'Duduk Bantah' launching press conference that he expected up to 500,000 demonstrators joining them in various locations within Malaysia and across the globe.
fully not agree...many concerts have been held at dataran merdeka before this... why they cant allow duduk bantah...I think they are afraid of 500,000 people taking part if the event is permitted?????
wake up Malaysians, this is our golden chance....If they still win they election, I'm sure the tax will be heavier, fuel price rises, speed traps everyday, ...remember, they already put a lot of money lately (BR1m , makanan rakyat, kedai rakyat, klinik rakyat, duit buku, etc to win the people heart), after this they will take back every cent from ours to make up the budget. By that time we all will suffer for another 5years
come on people.. together lets we 'MERDEKAKAN' Malaysia drpd politik kotor / tipu / putar belit / korupsi / kroni / campur tgn politik pd polis/makhamah dan sewaktu dgnnya
To be honest, there are many cases of the so called "legal immigrants" out of nowhere flooded in to vote.
Is this called Malaysia democracy ? It sounds to me like it's a Dictatorship instead.
And also all these corruptions must end. Even there are cases of RM2 paid up captial company able to get million dollars worth project and also the company is already bankrupt.
This is called M a l a y s i a ? 1 Malaysia ? 1 BN to be exact.
Here we go again...
Didn't this happened the last time? Somebody says yes! Then somebody say no! Then last minute place not suitable? Tear gas came and all denied Malaysian from all races get bashing police and etc.etc.
Getting tired of reading this sandiwara of nonsense in our country really need free and fair election great Malaysian awareness from this moment. Enough is enough I say… our forefathers took great pride and sacrifices their lives to build this blessed multiracial country but the rate our Najib@najis and co’s direction for insurgent. Enough is enough I plead with two hands Bangkitlah wahai rakyat Malaysia demi masa depan anak kita. Tunku is not peace his turning left and right in his tombstone hearing this happenings.
“BANGKIT WAHAI MALAYSIAN!”
Definition of Irony / Ironic:-
Example of Irony :-
Our 1 Malaysia PM stating "We want to create a Malaysia where human rights principles are upheld, where an individual is free to gather peacefully and to express opinions openly while balancing the interests of the individual and community," - quote taken from the previous msn article AND challenges faced by Bersih 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0.
Sentence using the word irony :- In due course the citizens of Malaysia began to realize the irony of the statements made by the Prime Minister of Malaysia and the Ministers of the government of the day.
How much more "peacefully" can you gather and express your opinion than with a sit-in event?
Now it is even more obvious why all this is happening…
If there is anyone out there who still cannot see the truth and the dirty tactics that this current government is using to deceive us, you all might as well donate your eyes to those blind people waiting on the long list for donors…
If you can’t see the truth now, YOU NEVER WILL…
Go Bersih 3.0… I will be there…
Please finalize the venue and thank you for all your efforts
Also, the proposed gathering is national enough, affecting ALL Malaysians. So, Dataran Merdeka is the right place for it.
Although I am a Middleman, but WHY Malaysia car so expensive? It is because of TAX, Singapore Car Ownership Certificate is expensive because gorverment is reducing the amount of car in such a small country. But Malaysia car's TAX is higher than the car? Is it the Transportation or Installation fees so HIGH?! I don't know the money is masuk pocket gorverment or maybe they use the money to give people a better life ^^
As I know Bersih is a organisation that ask for a fair election aren't they? They didn't burning cars or act rough aren't they? So why don't BN and Malaysian had a fair competition, why don't gorverment give yourself a kesedaran about what Malaysian want?
Give it a shot, Malaysia is good and our resident all are good our Najib also a good leader. I am not supposing to criticise any side but I am giving fair comment. All people wish for a better tomorrow. Lets have a negotiation with Bersih.
don't think too much, just say bye bye to BN, and give anwar a try. then we see how PKR perform? so next time i'll only say bye bye BN. let BN become our history, cause they like sejarah.
Is it still surprising on the tactics employed by the govt in dealing with such scenario? They will claim it disturb the public and peace, this is not suitable, that is not suitable. What I am surprised is that DBKL (govt) gave notice now (which I consider early) and not 1 to 2 days before the rally. They will find ways and means to disrupt and suppress democracy and still try to look angelic by "not knowing" or "not informed" and in the end will try and deny this and that. They meaning the rulling party......BN or in our Malaysia political scenario UMNO.....
no matter what you try to say or do;
no matter how innocent and saintly you try to potray yourself; we the rakyat knows who is the culprit and definitely knows how to differentiate what is right and wrong. The more you try your gimmicks, the more the rakyat will respond.
ABUABUABUABUABUABUABUABUABUABUABUABUABUABUABU + ABBNABBNABBNABBN.......
What do you think his Deputy President will do if he is still in UMNO? Is he going to set up another party for the rakyat? Or what he will do if the boss join back UMNO because he has better chance of becoming PM?
They are just another rejected re-cycle leaders of UMNO Kick them all out and prevent them from cheating the people and ruin this country more & more.
This will never end at all but what obviously we can see is that when the country is corrupted and not clean we are progressing slower than our other ASEAN country.When only we are able to get out from a 3rd world country status?Everyone that join politic with an intention of gaining big bucks then who are the people that going to serve rakyat?Inflation rising,cost increasing,salary never increase.So many social issues never tackle.The country never progress at all under your current administration.
If the elections is any cleaner, then there won't be only 5 states won by PR...........
The current issue is on the matter of phantom voters alledgely coming from 'citizenship' accorded to immigrant worker with blue i/c issued and with the condition that the vote correctly,
This matter needs to be adressed.
