ROSE volunteers at BERSIH 4 Kuching
The urgent call for volunteers to man the ROSE voter registration booth at BERSIH 4 Kuching went out at 11pm on the 25th of August. On that same night, we had 1 response. By the next morning we had 2, then 5, then 7 and finally we had 12. Out of the 15 who responded, at least half were first-time volunteers at events of this nature. One volunteer came all the way from Miri and answered our call for volunteers. Despite the trepidation that things could get ugly, despite the heat, despite the discomfort, ROSE is proud that with the help of these passionate Sarawakians, we managed to register 100 voters in 3 hours!
