Students very much like us, fought against live bullets, rubber bullets and tear gas just for changes.They fought so that they and the future generation can have a better life. There has to be sacrifices in order to gain or achieve something. Taken example from Indonesia, from May till December 1998, thousands of students died but the struggle did not stop. Students like you and me, not poor either rich wanted a fair and balanced government, a government which will fulfill all their needs.After reading and knowing about what happened in Indonesia, Malaysia shares similar situations but jut not that bad but if no actions are taken I think Malaysia will be at state of war. Students as well as everybody else can make changes to have a better life but it takes courage and the will power to stand together and fight. There has to be unity among all ethnicity.
