WHY THIS CAMPAIGN?

Over the past few months, as Malaysia edges ever closer to the 13th General Election, BERSIH 2.0 is alarmed to see an unprecedented escalation in political violence. The violence ranged from disruptions during ceramahs to physical assault by individuals affiliated with political parties. It is clear that the incidences are not isolated occurrences but part of a larger trend where violence is increasingly becoming a weapon of first resort.
The use of political violence affects the ability of voters to make free and informed choices. It further entrenches within mainstream political discourse a culture of violence that is detrimental to democratic processes. Hence, in light of the ongoing and escalating incidences of violence, BERSIH 2.0 is launching a “Reject Political Violence” campaign, aimed at candidates, political parties and the general public.

KENAPA KEMPEN INI DILANCARKAN?
Sejak tempoh beberapa bulan menghampiri Pilihan Raya Umum ke-13, BERSIH 2.0 berasa cemas apabila menyaksikan peningkatan mendadak insiden-insiden yang berkaitan dengan keganasan dalam berpolitik. Keganasan-keganasan ini termasuklah dari gangguan di majlis-majlis ceramah sehingga ke serangan fizikal yang dilakukan oleh individu-individu yang mempunyai kaitan dengan parti-parti politik. Jelas, kejadian-kejadian ini tidak lagi boleh dianggap sebagai kejadian terpencil sebaliknya adalah sebahagian daripada trend yang lebih besar di mana keganasan telah dijadikan senjata politik yang utama.
Keganasan politik sebegini boleh menjejaskan pengundi dari membuat pilihan yang bebas dan adil. Jika tidak dibendung, ia dikhuatiri akan sebati dan diterima sebagai amalan biasa dalam politik arus perdana yang akhirnya merosakkan proses demokrasi dalam negara ini. Oleh itu, berhadapan dengan situasi insiden-insiden keganasan politik yang semakin meningkat ini, BERSIH 2.0 akan melancarkan kempen “Tolak Keganasan Politik”, yang disasarkan ke arah calon-calon pilihan raya, parti-parti politik, dan masyarakat awam.
