Bersih 2.0 has announced that the Bersih 5 rally will take place on 19 November 2016. Prior to the rally, the Bersih Convoy will depart from 6 different states on 1 October 2016. The nationwide convoy will spend 7 weeks travelling to 246 cities, towns and villages across the country to raise awareness about the Bersih 5 demands for institutional reforms and the severity of the 1MDB crisis.
Global Bersih pledges support and participation for the Bersih 5 rally. Since the Bersih 2.0 rally, Malaysians residing in all parts of the world gathered in solidarity with fellow Malaysians back home. During Bersih 4, Malaysians and friends of Malaysia in 89 cities participated.
Global Bersih secretary Bala Chelliah said, “It is important for overseas Malaysians to participate in the upcoming Bersih 5 rally. We not only stand in solidarity with our fellow Malaysians, but we also need to voice out our dissatisfaction over the lack of institutional reforms and the lack of solid action against those involved in the 1MDB scandal.”
Global Bersih will announce the cities involved in the global Bersih 5 rally soon.
