The Bersih committee revealed that they collected a total of RM2,450,000 in donations.
Bersih also claimed they attracted 500,000 participants to rally in just KL centre alone. Do you know how much waste – damage and garbage – half a million people can generate from their intense hyperactivities and not to mention sleepover?
The Housing Ministry intends to send the rally organizers the clean-up bill. Minister Rahman Dahlan said it cost the Kuala Lumpur City Council (DBKL) RM65,000 to pick up after the boisterous Yellow Shirts, i.e. extra work sweeping the roads, collecting rubbish, etc.
But despite her 500,000 supporters thronging and dirtying the city streets throughout the long weekend, Bersih chairman Maria Chin Abdullah (above) is still reluctant for her 89-NGO umbrella to help foot any of the additional expenses to keep our Malaysian capital BERSIH spick and span.
Never mind that the RM65k expenditure was only incurred because of her event involving half a million people.
Instead Maria retorted to DBKL, “It’s really YOUR JOB to clean up city streets.”
