A waiting crowd of reporters immediately surged forward and the Bersih reps staged an impromptu press conference in the middle of the road.

Earlier, lawyer N Surendran, who was representing Samad, tweeted that police had asked Samad if he intended to cause unrest in the country.

Samad was also asked how much he was paid to read his poem at the Bersih launch, said the lawyer, who added that the poet was being investigated under the Sedition Act and Police Act.

Fadiah Nadwa Fikri, also representing Samad, tweeted that both lawyers themselves were served with notices to attend questioning tomorrow.

Meanwhile, Ibrahim Ali is being investigated for sedition and was questioned for two hours, reported Malaysiakini.

Protestors are labelled as communists. Meantime, government spends tens of millions of ringgit on PM’s and DPM’s houses.

We salute the brave men & women who are laying the foundation for free and fair elections and end to corruption,racism & injustice !

I have T-Shirts of every revolutionary leader. Does that make me a ‘Communist’?

This OCPD …. Really stupid. Probably seeing Che Guevara with his beard and beret, makes him (upset)…

It is intimidation and nothing else. If this is not a Police State I wonder what is.

The most difficult part about this whole thing is listening the the trash that is being put out in public by UMNO/BN and the crazies. How do parents tell their children to study hard, work hard and be honest and good? Our children can point to these people and say all they need is be evil, suck up to the right people and talk trash..

Should Ambiga & Bersih 2.0 thanks Najib for the free publicity?

First they ignore you,
then they laugh at you,
then they fight you,
then you win.
— Mahatma Gandhi

I am quite surprise Najib speed up the whole process, it is obvious that BN are now fighting Bersih 2.0.

Our local mainstream media like TV (TV1,2,3 NTV7, 8TV, Astro) only give federal government point of view. If Bersih is so ‘kotor’ to create nuisance, then let the public also get the chance to listen to their viewpoints on TV so that we can make better judgement that Bersih is indeed a nuisance to peaceful Malaysia.

otherwise, people continue to seek alternative media like Anil’s to get more complete (if not perfect) picture.

It’s nice to be appreciated…instead of being constantly put in the drawer, Gherkin. Why don’t you buy Anil a cuppa for every comment of yours that manages to continue seeing the light of day?

Since when can see opposition’s view on TV?

It will be interesting how the charges of causing unrest comes about.
What are the criteria to charge people under those Acts?
