One and a half month after the ugly Bersih 3.0 rally, a small group is still occupying Dataran Merdeka, a sign that Ambiga & Gang are still represented in their ongoing open 'war' against the King, the government and the people.
Notwithstanding its effect on social harmony and stability, their ultimate objective to stage a coup before the next general election is expected to take a new devastating turn - by turning Merdeka Square into another Tiananmen.
The April 28 rally failed to run down the government but they were very successful in inflicting heavy losses to the country's image as the most safest nation in Asean.
No, they don't want that. Being a safe country does not bring any good if Pakatan Rakyat fails to conquer Putrajaya in the next national poll. By hook or by crook, they must win and in ensuring that, it doesn't matter if the whole country plunges into bloodshed.
Not only that they were inspired by Tahrir Square revolts. Tiananmen Square looks more practical in the sense that whatever happens, the government should take all the blame.
The Tiananmen Square protests in 1989, also known as the June 4th Revolution in Beijing, were a series of popular demonstrations which begun on April 15 of the same year. It started on a small scale before erupted into a 'mini war' between protesters (most of them were students) with the security forces.
In the end, at least 2,500 were killed while 10,000 more injured, making it among the most bloodiest protest the world had ever observed.
Reasons for the protests were high inflation and jobless rates, corruption and the waning of Communism around the world, particularly in eastern Europe They demanded for an open and free market system and a democratic reform for the whole of China.
They also called for continued economic reform, freedom of the Press, accountability from officials and political liberalisation. At the height of the protests, almost a million people converged at the Square, chanting anti-government slogans, disrupting traffic and provoking the security forces.
Across China, similar protest took place in Shanghai, Wuhan, Xian and Changsha which saw some protesters began looting and rioting. That was when the army and the police had to intervene to disperse them. Unfortunately, they had chosen to collide with the security personnel.
Exactly this is the modus operandi of Bersih 3.0. The only thing that differs them with Tiananmen is Ambiga and Gang are demanding for a more 'clean and transparent' electoral system. They are more concern to install someone as a prime minister rather than working closely with the government in keeping inflation at bay and creating more job opportunity for the rakyat.
However, will Pakatan Rakyat participate in the national poll when their objective to change the government was not met? Furthermore, they will continuously criticise the integrity of the electoral system, and this opens a big suggestion - that they will do anything to disrupt the next national poll.
And now that they already have some representatives to occupy Dataran Merdeka, its is believed more will join them when Prime Minister dissolves the Parliament and announces the general elections' date.
It wont be a surprise if Dataran erupts with gunfire during the election campaign. The police too have limitations in carrying out their duty. Worse still, there are words that should such an event takes place, the army might step in.
Its all about winning the general election and power. Let the whole nation loses everything as long as their ambition is attained.
They have not seen the riots and ugly protests in Warsaw, Poland in 1985 when Solidarity Movement led by Lech Walesa took to the streets. They have not observed how students protest in Pusan, South Korea in 1991 claimed hundreds of life and how Tiananmen opened the floodgate to hell.
But I was there, except for Tiananmen where I arrived a week later.
You cannot buy democracy. It is determined by the people, our rakyat. To takeover the government, one must try win the general election. If you don't trust the election system, skip from contesting until you are satisfied with its conduct.
No. What you lead does not represent the masses and their voice. You are doing all this for the sake of making troubles... and for the politics of one single person!
