Malaysia blocks BERSIH' website on eve of mass rally

Bersih's webpage was blocked in Malaysia on a day before the mass rally demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Najib Razak over allegations of graft and financial mismanagement at debt-laden state fund 1MDB and a multi-million-dollar donation made into his personal account.

Impact

All Malaysians using DNS provided by ISPs, especially mobile data will be redirected to MCMC censorship block and will not be able to access the website.

Solution

Affected users should consider the following workaround:
1. Using alternative DNS (Ref: How to workaround Internet Censorship via DNS blocking)
2. Using safe proxy (Ref: Tor Project)
