PETALING JAYA, Oct 14 – Electoral reforms movement Bersih 2.0 has collected over RM13,000 in donations from the public during its concert for clean and free elections at the Kelana Jaya stadium here last night.

Despite the rain, the concert which started at 4.30pm attracted a crowd of around 500 people, with most of them being Bersih supporters.

Bersih co-chair Datuk A. Samad Said told the crowd that the funds collected will be used in its fight to ensure the government fulfills its eight demands for free and fair elections.

“We will not succeed without all your help,” the national laureate said last night.

The national laureate, also known as Pak Samad, hoped that the spirit to fight for Bersih’s eight demands will be sparked through the concert.
