that's why i said malaysia practises dictatorship in the name of democracy.
Such scenario always happen to other third world countries, and too bad, it happens in Malaysia too.
whenever we rally, they spray. no matter how peaceful it is. unless you are rallying a support for the govt.
too bad a lot of people can't see what's happening in the country. a lot of people still think that we have the freedom of speech.
p/s: do we have something like this in our constitution?
"Examples of civil rights are freedom of speech, press, assembly, the right to vote, freedom from involuntary servitude, and the right to equality in public places. " US constitution.
