Here’s the first news report I read.
And a second.
It’s confirmed there are at least 20 arrested, and Sonia’s blog mentions 15 names.
Rocky has some pictures here.
This little phrase caught my eyes … “Protests are rare in Malaysia” . Since it’s rare, that’s why people sit up and pay attention when something like this happens. I noticed quite a number of protests the last 2 years. A Malaysian cultural distinctive is that all have been peaceful as far as I know . that’s why I was puzzled when the news had a little “after report segment” which equated what happened today to sure violence. Good to hear what Haris Ibrahim had to say in the interview (which paints a different picture from what I saw on the mainstream news!). One thing for sure, it was a first for many. Another thing is sure, I have “reloaded” insight on how the media works. 🙂
Literally a birds eye view.
