“Look at their camaraderie. There are no racial or religious barriers here. As far as they are concerned, racial politics is no longer relevant. And while [Prime Minister] Najib [Tun Razak] coined the term 1Malaysia, it is Anwar [Ibrahim] who has turned the slogan into a reality.

“It is so ironic that of all people, Anwar, who was once regarded as the most racist politician, has become the force that unites the people of this nation. God works in mysterious ways,” he added.

Pakatan’s black parade rattles Johor

‘We are not interested in the Election Commission fixing the mistakes in the coming general election. We want the commission to declare that Pakatan won the 13th GE,’ thunders Anwar.

JOHOR BAHRU: In the heart of the once impregnable fortress of Barisan Nasional, tens of thousands gathered to express their dissatisfaction over what the opposition has dubbed as the stolen elections.

Despite the venue being changed twice in short notice due to the authorities refusing to give the green light, people still braved the rain and traffic gridlock to attend the Pakatan Rakyat rally in Puteri Wangsa here last night.

Held in the middle of shoplots, the crowd flooded the streets, with some risking life and limb by perching on tree branches to catch a glimpse of the speakers.

A cacophony of vuvuzelas reverberated through the air as the area took on a carnival-like atmosphere. There were rows of stalls selling an assortment of pro-opposition merchandise, ranging from t-shirts to stickers, as well as food and drinks.
……..

‘The youth have awakened’

The majority of those who attended were youths. And while the older folks seemed camera-shy, the youngsters had no qualms in posing for photographs brandishing placards and banners, which among others, denounced BN and racism.

Weighing in on this, a retired accountant, who wished to be known only as Chong, said that the 13th general election had served as an awakening for young Malaysians.

“When I was their age, I couldn’t care less about politics,” reminisced the 62-year-old Johorean.

Some cars of rally participants were reportedly vandalised. Newly-minted Kulai parliamentarian Teo Nie Ching said in a Facebook posting:

“I was back to home safely from the 505 blackout rally. But cars of some attendees were sprayed with acid, one of them is my DAP member in Kulai who parked his car 1km away from the venue.”

The crowd, undeterred by the drizzle, comprised Johoreans from all races who seemed eager to see a change in the federal government.

Organisers said that some 100 police personnel had been on standby throughout the night, but did not interfere in the four-hour rally.

Venue change in JB

The fifth rally will be held at Johor Bahru tomorrow evening.

Like in Kuantan, the police had objected to choice of rally venue – Dataran Bandaraya and later the Sutera Mall parking lot.

Eventually, organisers settled on having the rally at a parking lot in front of Puteri Wangsa PKR branch office at Ulu Tiram.

Yesterday, Johor police chief Mohd Mokhtar Mohd Shariff said the rally organisers did not provide 10 prior notice for the event.

“Representatives of the organiser came to the police station to apply for a permit for the rally on Saturday, but they were not issued with any permit as they failed to comply with the conditions under the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012,” he said.

Anwar and DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang are scheduled to address the Johor Bahru event.
