Supporters urged to don yellow in Bersih ‘warm up’

 Supporters are asked to wear yellow on June 25 and July 2, two Saturdays before the July 9 rally.
The Coalition for Free and Fair Elections (Bersih 2.0) today urged its supporters to don yellow shirts on the two Saturdays leading up to the mammoth rally scheduled for July 9.

 In a widely circulated text message, Bersih 2.0 asked supporters to “paint the nation yellow” in a warm up to the rally in Kuala Lumpur to hand over a petition seeking royal intervention for electoral reform.

“You need not assemble (on June 25 and July 2), but wherever you may be, put on your Bersih 2.0 t-shirt on those days,” the text message reads.

 With Bersih 2.0 T-shirts currently on sale, a PKR Youth member Razali Abdul Ghaffar was hauled up by police about half an hour yesterday to give his statement for selling the t-shirts.

According to PKR Selangor information chief Shuhaimi Shafie, Razali was approached by police officers outside of a Pakatan Rakyat ceramah in Sungai Merab, Sepang.

 “He told me that police confiscated two T-shirts, took him to the police station and asked him where he got the T-shirts and who is he is selling it for.

 “He is just a small trader trying to make extra money. It appears that you cannot say the word Bersih any more, can’t use the word ‘yellow’, can’t wear or sell yellow T-shirts,” he said.

Shuhaimi, who is also Sri Muda assemblyperson, added that an officer from the Sepang district police station asked him this morning to give a statement on the matter.

 “I will most likely give my statement tomorrow as I am not free today,” he said.When contacted, Razali said that the police took the T-shirts as “samples”.

“The officers who approached me were in plainclothes and when I asked for their authorisation card, I noticed one of them still carried his civilian identity card,” he said of the incident which happened at about 10pm last night.

The full-time trader added that the police told him that it is “wrong to sell Bersih 2.0 T-shirts and to encourage people to go to the rally on July 9.”
