Bersih 3.0 Kota Kinabalu The best Yellow man!

Full support for Bersih 3.0, full Yellow gear.

In Bersih 2.0 (July 9th, 2011), yellow Bersih 2.0 T-shirts were outlawed. There were also reports of people arrested or harassed just for wearing yellow. Almost 10 months later, Bersih 3.0 is in stark contrast to the previous event. This time, people came out in yellow with a vengeance.
