freedom of assembly

Bersih 5 crowd outside KLCC on 19 November 2016

Bersih 5’s success in Kuala Lumpur, with an estimated 120,000 participants, is a loud and clear cry for Bersih 2.0’s five demands of institutional reforms – clean elections, clean government, the strengthening of parliamentary democracy, the right to dissent and the empowerment of Sabah and Sarawak – as well as the resignation of Prime Minister Najib Razak.

Bersih 2.0 would like to remind the police of Section 18 in PAA 2012, which states that should a counter assembly take place which will cause conflict between the participants of the assemblies, it is the duty of the authorities to provide an alternative date, time, and venue for the counter assembly.
