  1. The BERSIH 5 Convoy starts on 1st October 2016 and will run every weekend until the BERSIH 5 rally on 19th November 2016. There will be seven convoys nationwide, starting from the North, South, East and West of Peninsula Malaysia and Sabah and Sarawak. The convoys will head towards Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching.

    The objective of the BERSIH convoy is to raise awareness about BERSIH 5’s demands for institutional reforms and the severity of the 1MDB crisis. As Malaysians, we must stand up and reach out to start a nationwide conversation on these issues because our collective future is in danger.

    The BERSIH Convoy is estimated to cover 246 cities, towns, and villages across Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah, and Sarawak.

    During the convoy, the participants will help to distribute BERSIH 5 flyers, do flash mobs and start conversations with different groups to discuss the impact of corruption and the need for reforms.

    If you are interested in joining the convoy, please check the convoy schedule and be at the Flag Off point 15 minutes before the convoy is due to depart.
