SHAH ALAM, June 19 — PKR Youth chief Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin has instructed the wing to man the frontline in the upcoming Bersih 2.0 rally in the federal capital to prove today’s youngsters were the country’s real agents of change.
Shamsul had sounded the rallying cry in response to party advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s earlier challenge to the youth wing.

“This is our country, not Umno’s. It’s up to us to make the change. If we don’t, I am sure our beloved country will be destroyed,” the lawyer told PKR members assembled here last night on the eve of its convention themed “Yakin Berani Berubah” (“Confident Courageous Change”).

He reminded the wing against being complacent because corruption, one of the key issues fuelling Bersih’s call for change, was central to their livelihood.

PKR is among several groups that have pledged to take part in the electoral reform organisation’s July 9 march for free and fair elections, prompting Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to question Bersih’s non-partisan stand.

“They are trying to use street demonstrations against the government to achieve their road to Putrajaya,” Muhyiddin told reporters in Sabah after opening the Beaufort Umno’s annual meeting yesterday.

Shamsul scoffed at the DPM’s remark and said PKR Youth was taking part in Bersih’s July 9 rally to push the national electoral reforms, adding that if its message was not heeded, the youths would resort to the “street” method.

  1. I hear there is this planned massive demonstration against the present government, what else can the demonstration be against right, by the opposition to force the government to accept its demands. I was told the opposition under the control of Anwar Ibrahim has a hand in this dangerous manoeuvre to make the government of the day succumbed to its demands. Well the bad new is this is not the Middle East where rampant street demonstrations, dubbed the Arab Spring protest and demonstration, have many repressive governments starting with Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak being overthrown. The good news is this is Malaysia, one of the most successful Asian countries in the region. Malaysia is nothing like Sudan, Tunisia, Egypt, Syria, Yemen and many more repressive and dictatorial governments.

    1. betul..betul..betul… buang masa je buat demonstrasi ni…….. buang duit pun iya…. baik duit dan masa tu buat benda lain yang berfaedah….
