Thankfully, the Bersih Rally held a few weeks ago went smooth without much unwanted incident. Ok, maybe a few isolated cases (fire crackers thrown at people and purportedly tampered drinks) but overall, I think most would agree that it went way better than the previous rallies. Although I was away and not able to be included in the crowd, I could not help but wonder what if things did go wrong on that day? What if there was chaos and anarchy? Am I really prepared?
Its a shame I am not in Malaysia to witness Bersih 4.0 unfold. Nevertheless, as I type out these words, I have my facebook on to follow their progress. The facebook profiles of friends back in Malaysia seems to be filled with all things yellow. At the moment, a few reports estimates about 60K people have filled KL city center. I have very little experience and knowledge on prepping for a citizen ‘march’ such as Bersih 4.0. Like all things in life, there is always something to learn here that we can put into our prepping practice. I found a few interesting posts on facebook on do’s and don’ts for Bersih 4.0. I thought it would be useful to write about them for future reference.
