Bersih 2.0 reports that the Bersih 5 Convoy will be flagged off at 9am on 1 October 2016 and will run every weekend until the Bersih 5 rally on 19 November 2016.
Seven convoys will weave their way from the North, South, East and West of Peninsula Malaysia and Sabah and Sarawak and head towards KL, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching.
The objective: to raise awareness of Bersih 5’s demands for institutional reforms and the severity of the 1MDB crisis. “As Malaysians, we must stand up and reach out to start a nationwide conversation on these issues because our collective future is in danger,” said Bersih 2.0.

Meanwhile, the Red Shirts are gathering in Lumut to counter the Bersih 5 Convoy campaign:
In a democracy worth its name, they are entitled to gather and demonstrate – but they should not try and disrupt the Bersih 5 Convoy and the 19 November rally or intimidate those taking part.
