Back when BERSIH 2.0 happened, I wanted to go, but couldn't, because my dad was abhorrent to the idea. So instead, my contribution — if you can call it that — was to pull together all the clips and images I could find and edit this little video (which I did on 8 July 2011 itself), and considering the views and likes, people appreciated it and I'm glad. I still think it is quite touching.
And I figured it's good to trot it out now, considering the efforts and fervour then were all about making the now (that is, the May 5th elections) possible, and even though what transpired fell far short of what the yellow-shirted tsunami (pun not intended) were marching for back then, it's still a reminder of how far our electorate has matured in its awareness, and of how much further we have to go. In recent days, we, of course, have had the humongous Kelana Jaya Stadium Batu Kawan Stadium rallies. This was how it started ... (almost, as there had been BERSIH 1.0 before that).
