Technically under categories of political theory, Malaysia doesn't even qualify as a Democracy, so it's not a surprise.

The gas even reached out to the balcony of my 42nd floor! -.-'
Bad experience of course. I wasn't aware of this either until my frnds told me about this the last time it happened.
But what I got to know is many, in fact numerous highly educated persons are taking part in it. Though I actually don't know what it actually is about.
Anyone care to explain?

To advocate for clean, free and fair electoral system.
The Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (better known by its Bahasa Malaysia name “BERSIH”) is a coalition backed by 84 Malaysian non-governmental organisations (NGOs) with the objective of campaigning for clean and fair elections in Malaysia.
BERSIH’s eight demands, which have remained relevant since the first public demonstration in 2007, are:
1. Clean the electoral roll
2. Reform postal ballot
3. Use of indelible ink
4. Minimum 21 days campaign period
5. Free and fair access to media
6. Strengthen public institutions
7. Stop corruption
8. Stop dirty politics

Of course the police action was indeed much more ugly than it should have been. It's a good idea to leave a protest as soon as the other protesters or police get aggressive because once crowd mentality and us vs them kicks in, anyone can get caught up in the violence.

I caught a mouse using sticky fly-papers in the house and I decided to play with it by using tear gas on it. My mistake was using the tear gas in a small space and I ended ups coughing for minutes. Serves me right. the mouse didn't flinch at all
