Bersih 4

Sunday, August 30, 2015

 

不少人对 Bersih 4 的意义认知有所误会,认为此集会是无谓及庸俗的示威,也认为透过示威抗议领导者是对司法的不尊重。但他们忽略了民主的精神。

 

和平集会是民主社会的一大要素,是合情合理与合法的管道。人民绝对有权力透过和平集会活动表达自己的立场,意见以及不满。而有原则的领导者也应尊重示威者的立场,就集会主题做出回应,辩驳和说服他人,或认错负责。

 

民主斗争是一场漫长的斗争。希望大家秉持着水滴石穿,永不言败的精神,继续为民主高歌!

 

Many do not fully understand the purpose of Bersih 4 and claim that it's politically unethical, unprincipled, and barbaric. They also claim that a democratically elected leader should be respected and not be challenged. However they may have misunderstood the principles of a democratic society.

 

Peaceful rally is the one of the most important elements in democracy. It is proper, constitutional and politically right to make one's stand clear and heard through rally. A leader with integrity and principle should respect the rally by making responsible remarks, good refutation or corresponding action.

 

The fight for democracy is tough and often involves sacrifices but one is never alone in this struggle. Let's not give up on our dream for a better nation!
