Update on 15 March:
Penang chief minister Lim Guan Eng said the state government did not have any problems with the gathering.
“It is all part of freedom of speech. However, I am surprised that they did not give me any memorandum. This is the first time a demonstration has been held but those who organised it did not have any memorandum to be submitted,” he said.
He added that the newly-formed state government was willing to listen to what the people had to say, including those from Umno. (New Straits Times)

Wah…I thought rallies are not a Malaysian culture. UMNO, what now? They are looking quite fierce also. But since no provocation, it went on smoothly. Imagine if it had been the past – an Opposition rally? Mampus-lah.
