Even after all this the questions are going to continue to be difficult to parse. Most of them will never be answered. :/

Malaysians protest for election reforms, clash with police

  • 25K Malaysian protesters met with police and teargas source

» The Rally in Kuala Lumpur: The massive public demonstration was engineered as a demand for reforms to Malaysia’s electoral process. The ruling party’s opposition claim a there’s a corrupting bias in the Election Commission, as well as fraudulent voter names on registration rolls. The state, led by Prime Minister Najib Razak (who’s political coalition has been in power for 55 years) prepared with barricades to keep protesters from Independence Square; when they threatened to push through the barricades, the police deployed teargas. State officials claim 222 protesters were arrested, and 3 were injured, along with 20 injured police, who they claim showed “utmost restraint.”

Teargas, water cannons fired at Malaysian pro-democracy protesters: The protesters showed up on the streets of Kuala Lumpur Saturday, despite lockdown orders, fighting for electoral reform — or, as opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim put it: “The message we are sending to Najib is that we must have clean elections!” The crackdown, a year after a similar crackdown, raised questions about Malaysian PM Najib Razak’s commitment to expanding civil liberties.

All in an effort to protest the regime: Is the Arab Spring spreading out of the Middle East and North Africa? Based on the nature of the protests in Malaysia, you have to wonder. Nearly 1,600 protesters were arrested, and a dozen people hurt, all in the wake of protests against Prime Minister Najib Razak’s government that officials went out of their way to prevent. The protests, which are pushing for electoral reform the opposition says is necessary, became strongly violent as Razak’s government showed its strength.”What is the necessity for a show of might against right?” asked opposition coalition leader Ambiga Sreenavasan. ”No matter what, right will always prevail.” source
