Bersih 3.0: Pictorial Depiction of the Event

This is a pictorial representation of the Bersih 3.0 Rally held on 28th April 2012. All images are from Adrian Hoe, you can visit his facebook gallery. All walks of life joins the Bersih 3.0 rally

Tel-Aviv, like Israel, Palestinian deprived of their rights to rally.

Razor wires or blade wires installed around Dataran Merdeka

Participant looking for empathy from the police.

Police sets up boundaries on Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman

People from all walks of life.

It started off with a peaceful walk.

It was literally, ‘bantah dan duduk’

I guess he was shouting ‘reformasi’, but looked pretty much like someone who’s heading to the stadium to support the Perak Football Team.

Lurking around, curious about things happening.

Walk in peace, no disruption, with exception taking the whole two lane.

Far top left, police didn’t really bother, everyone was enjoying the walk.

I gotta say, some use pretty harsh words.

I have no idea what this uncle wrote. Some help please?

That is a pretty huge turn out. There’s a few more routes like this.

The Hijau Anti Lynas joined Bersih 3.0 afterwards.

Not sure where this is, but looked stuffy.

Penangites came down to KL when they could even do it at their state.

Stranded at Masjid Jamek, no LRT was going to stop. RapidKL kept issuing tickets despite shorting the Masjid Jamek station, soon it became a can of sardine.

Police started shooting the tear gas. I read somewhere, there was a trespass. Notice the smoke from the LRT track above? People kept saying it was planted there, but I think police shot the canisters and landed there.

People were panicking and running away when water canon starts spraying.

This is an ugly sight, not because Bersih rally was littering, they made a run for their life and decided to leave everything they don’t need behind. That includes thong, flip-flops, shoes, drinks, flags etc.

These guns are supposed to be fired in the air, not eye level.

Police has managed to push back the Bersih 3.0 participant, though I reckon brute force isn’t the only way to get people moving.

Some other part of KL, people were rallying for the cause peacefully until…

.. the police force unleashed their demons. Unnecessary.. really unnecessary. I doubt the people were provoking the police to get them. Nobody wants to play chase the chicken with police officers.

Police got hold of his pony tail and decided to discipline them, but why aren’t they wearing uniforms? Are they undercover police officers? Or just some Nepal Security at my office building. This doesn’t make sense. Appreciate if anyone can shed some lights on this.

The guy with the pony tail fell and was being stomped by police officers with high heel boot as if he’s some recycling can. I bet those boot hurts like bitch! Clearly the police was at fault in this. He wasn’t even resisting an arrest and you still kept beating him to pulp.

Good or bad, shit or gold, fucktard or mastermind, muslim or buddhist, it doesn’t matter. These people (Bersih 3.0) stood there to fight their rights, don’t condemn like you’re so innocent that you’ve never masturbated in life. One day, it will be your turn to fight for your right, but which channel are you taking? The behind closed door comments or the loud international gathering. It doesn’t matter, as long as we respect each other’s rights
