I think that it’ll be fun this time around. I’ll be encouraging my friends and colleagues to join too, as I feel that the risk of a crack down by the police is highly unlikely.
The government is caught between a rock and a hard place.
If they choose to let Bersih 3.0 happen, it may fizzle and die out or it may just embolden the ‘silent’ majority to let themselves be heard. If the event draws the huge crowds that it is expected to, it may just prove that the rakyat truly want change and until we get it, there will be more sequels coming soon.
If they choose to block the event and crack down on the rally goers, it may spell complete doom for the ruling government in the next GE. It is also likely to draw international condemnation if the government gases its own citizens for simply asking for electoral reform. Images of police brutality are unlikely to swing any votes their way.
I don’t want to be the cabinet at this time. It’s difficult to decide on what to do.
In this game, the only way to win might be to not play at all.
PS: I wish that the BN politicians and parties would come join the party too. It’d be fun.
