Take the power back!
“It is not the people who should be afraid of the government, the government should be afraid of the people. ..”
I will show up at Dataran Merdeka at 3pm, wearing yellow. Is that against the law?
I will show up a gathering that the organizers have insisted will be peaceful, and I intend to be peaceful. Is that against the law?
I will show up and walk to the Istana Negara because I believe all of us in the country, regardless or religion, color, or gender, deserve an elections process that is free, fair, transparent. Is that against the law?
I will show up because I want the Elections Commission to be free of government interference and be answerable to the people and not the government of the day. Is that against the law?
I will show up because I want to show the Agong that there are massive numbers of people out there that want change, and are not able to affect change because the powers of the government are already deeply rooted in the legislature, judiciary, and supposed independent bodies. Is that against the law?
