Bersih Rally 28 April 2012: Free & Fair Elections! Why We Support It!

Its quite silly not to support Bersih if you are a citizen of this country. The reason is simple, you are not supporting your
own rights! Imagine not being able to make a difference politically because someone cheated in the elections.
Then why have elections at all?!
And we all know that tyrants, dictators, psychopaths love having power without elections….
The bottomline is this. 
Regardless of whether Bersih is being used as a political rallying point, we should still support the idea of free and fair elections. 
When was the last time you played chess with a family member that stole your Queen when you wasn’t looking? Bet you didn’t like that, did you?

 

And without further ado, some pictures from the internet!

 
 
 

The bad guys???

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

The aim of all political association is the preservation of the natural and imprescriptible rights of man. These rights are liberty, property, security, and resistance to oppression.
