Didn’t get much of a shot, as I was busy running around avoiding tear gas and pepper water at Masjid Jamek.
Here are some quick snapshots.
At 1 pm, about 2 hours before the Rally begins, helicopters are seen rounding the Dataran Merdeka area. Alot of people has already started gathering around the LRT Stations. The gloomy sky and impending dark clouds marks the beginning of a rather nasty water spraying and smoky affair later on.
Business must be exceptionally good for Mc Donald’s today. Burger King which is located opposite, was seen closing down their iron-grills to avoid any “potential hazard” to their store front.
This is after the meeting with the Agong, where everyone’s heading to the National Mosque for their prayers.
Causing massive jam along the way.
This Uncle Photographer must be having a good field day!
This young-little gal was waving her “symbolic” yellow toy at us when passing by the long stretch of yellow crowd.
The Yellow People is everywhere in every corner of the City, under the bridge, up the bridge and in back alleys…LUAS COVERAGE!
The road heading towards Dataran Merdeka, from afar you can see the Police standing in line.
A closer look at the police line ups. I wonder why they are looking so stern and so stiffed-up. Come on… the walk is already over, and everyone’s going home for some hot tea.
I see…they realized they are on camera, no wonder the photogenic-look.
Here’s a few video clips I managed to capture during the eventful afternoon.
Peaceful protesters are sprayed with “chemical liquid” and at least 6 tear gas during the stand-off at Masjid Jamek.
Video shows loyal rakyats awaiting for the memorandum of Electoral Reform to be submitted.
That’s all from my K750i. A few videos will be uploaded after my friend transferred them into the laptop.
I was rather disappointed when the police started spraying water on the peaceful crowd, and adding a few more tear gas (at least 6-7 of them) into the crowd. Yours truly was caught in one of the tear gas episode and ran away from the scene, crying like a baby…lol. A kind police man advised me to was the face with rain water to clean up the wasabi-effect.
Glad everything went on smoothly and ended with no blood stain on anyone’s shirt.
A true-Malaysian would be very moved by this thread (because I’m)…
