Bersih Steering Committee members and other activists gathered at Ambiga’s home in a show of solidarity while anti-Bersih groups later delivered statements at her residence (see updates below).
The Lamborghini-loving ‘petty trader’ Umno member has turned up and said his group would not be setting up stalls today. The ‘ikan bakar’ ‘City Residents and Traders Action Council’ have issued a statement titled ‘Bersih 4.0 cintakan keamanan’.
The group demanded that Ambiga apologise for what she had done.
“I apologise for not fighting harder to achieve free and fair elections,” Ambiga shot back.
Pak Samad for his part asked the group why they wanted an apology from only Ambiga and not him.
Another group of about 30 people calling themselves ‘Gerakan Belia Gagasan 1Malaysia’ distributed flyers with a masthead ‘Halau 1.0: Misi Selamatkan Malaysia’ and contents titled, ’10 P kenapa Ambiga patut dihalau dari Malaysia.’ A photo of Ambiga captioned ‘Bersih itu kotor’ graced the top left corner. Good grief!
The press came out in full force while the road leading to Ambiga’s place was sealed off.
On the bright side, Ambiga has been receiving bouquets of flowers, a Bersih cake and other expressions of solidarity. So great has been the enthusiasm that the Bersih committee had to come out and ask people to hold on with the donations until it comes up with proper guidelines.
