The Yellow March, in pictures. I managed to park at the National Press Club, walked to an empty Dataran Merdeka with Shanghai Fish, and found ourselves behind the police, firemen, and FRU lines.
The "teargas" truck moved out from there. We could hear commotion coming from Masjid Jamek way. Later, we heard of water canons and teargas being used on the peaceful marchers.
We joined thousands in the walk towards the Istana. Tens of thousands. People were walking from several directions as they could not assemble earlier at the Dataran Merdeka. The McDonalds at Central Market refused to open its doors.
There were as many women as men. Children, too. The rain did not dampen the spirit of the people who wanted a message sent to the Agong, and to the increasingly detached and arrogant leaders of this nation.
How big was the crowd?
Easily 30 times more than the Bar Council's "Walk for Justice", I'd say.
