BERSIH 3.0-The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

There has been so much talking during the past 5-6 days regarding one of the biggest ever protest ever held in the country, Bersih 3.0. I was there as usual, supporting the cause of the protest and at the same time hoping to get some beautiful photos of the event. So here are some photos of the sit-in protest held last Saturday in Dataran Merdeka, the good photos of people from all walks of life sitting peacefully supporting the event, the bad S.O.P of the police in handling the protest, and the ugly scene of violence that marred during the protest. All in all I captured more than 700 photos of the event. Here are some of the photos captured during the sit-in protest, one of the biggest so far, calling for the government to reform the electoral machine in this country. Enjoy the photos.
