During the demonstration, they could be seen twittering, SMSing or Emailing to one another, using the tools in their possession to outsmart the police. Besides this, how else could you explain that despite the heavy road blocks placed at all entry points into the city manned by heavy police presence, thousands of them were still able to bypass the police checkpoints to be there on July 9 to show the authorities what they were capable of. Even if it was true what the IGP said that only 6,000 people took part in the demonstration, then how did these 6,000 slip through? If only he knew that there were already 'spies' monitoring from within keeping those outside informed, like, the safest route to take to get into the city. UMNO, run by senior citizens who are less tech savvy, need to re-think their strategies to stay informed.
No groups was able to match what BERSIH 2.0 did, bringing people from all races, ages, religions, genders and even the physically challenged together for one momentous moment. Viva la FaceBook people! Furthermore, no group was able to match BERSIH 2.0 in its international reach that took, even UMNO, by surprise. It is therefore quite apparent that PERKASA and UMNO Youth paled in comparison to the organisational ability of BERSIH 2.0.
To all those participated, thank you for your courage and conviction. You have shown that you are capable to be an agent of change without even resorting to violence.
