Election Day in Malaysia- May 5th, 2013 Challenging The Longest Running Party In History
Turns out this party has been in rule for 55 years, and that that is some sort of a world record. Turns out the blue-flags with the justice scales don’t want to be going anywhere. Turned out there were a lot of honking horns and just a few skirmishes that the police had to break up near the BackHome Hostel, our home. Turns out, if you’re caught using a fake I.C. (ID) you will be turned over to the police, and until they arrive, and I quote, “Your safety cannot be guaranteed.” Here’s some photos and video I shot, one is a great interview of people passionately believing in their choice of government. For someone who is really, really not into politics and governments at all, I do pray that this country (and all the other 300+) just find a way to do the people right. 🙂 Enjoy!
If you are caught, your safety is not guaranteed video. See for yourself!
Blue-flagged believers in the street gaining votes as people walk in to vote. Watch their undying faith.
The previous post in this two-part series:
Any thoughts on elections, governments, politics? Boy, I have tons to say but chose (for some odd reason) to bring you the videos and keep my mouth shut- a rare and untypical choice for the ever-speaking Gabi. So, take your stand, get on your soap box, I’m giving you the stage.
Oh, and listen. We’re doing something new and exciting. We want to start sharing with our readers on a deeper lever. We’re opening a mailing list in which we’ll mail our readers insider videos, photos, and thoughts we don’t share anywhere else. Not on Facebook and not on YouTube. So, to join the mailing list, add your name to the rss of the blog to get every post to your inbox or write me on the contact form and I’ll just add you to the list that gets the newsletter. I’ll add you to the list, with great joy and honor.
