  1. This government have done so many wrong things that anyone doing the right thing is accuse of overthrowing the government. The whole situation is so bad, so corrupted that all who loves Malaysia wants to change it, they label these Malaysia lovers of wanting to overthrow this evil regime. Any attempt to promote justice, openness, truth, and democratic freedoms is in fact an attempt to remove BN from power – because BN is dead set against all these qualities! Undoubtedly, we all wish to save Malaysia and change this government through the ballot box. We cannot accept this corrupt government anymore. We want change through the ballot box.
