BERSIH 2.0-Reversal of Fortunes

Launch of BERSHIT 2.O

"The initial BERSIH coalition which organised the rally in 2007 consisted of NGOs and political parties as members of the coalition. However, BERSIH 2.0 which was launched on 10 November 2010 consists purely of members from civil society organisations. It is a citizens’ movement for free and fair elections."

Tak guna nak cakap dengan dunggu dan lembu. Macam mana pun tak percaya. You kata A dia orang jawab B. Tak usahlah buang masa.
