THE BERSIH MARCH ON NOVEMBER 10, 2007 WAS INDEED AN IMPORTANT MILESTONE IN THE PATH TOWARDS CIVIC CONSCIOUSNESS AND REFORM.

THEY BRAVED THE WATER CANONS, TEAR GAS, ARRESTS AND CAME TOGETHER AS ONE NATION, ONE VOICE AND ONE HEART.
People should not be afraid of their governments….

THEY FOUGHT THE GOOD FIGHT. INDEED THEY LIVED THE SPIRIT OF V.
