At 12.30pm Bangkok time. It seems about 30,000 people have gathered at the Kelana Jaya Stadium to protest the fuel hike. No untoward incident so far.
There are some police presence but they are on the monitoring mode.
It seems like a carnival with stalls all set up at the stadium. Pakatan Rakyat leaders will give speeches at 2pm. And the event will culminate with a speech by Anwar Ibrahim.
There were many attempts to ensure that the protest did not take place, like false sms-es. But organisers were adamant that it would go on.
Not sure how it will all turn out at the end. We’ll just have to wait and see.
I am proud to see so many Malaysians braving the unpredictable to attend such a protest to express their views.
