Crowds swelling at Kelana Jaya stadium

(The Star) – Thousands of protestors, led by several NGOs and Pakatan Rakyat leaders, have thronged the Kelana Jaya stadium here to protest against the fuel hike.

Many of them were wearing red shirts, emblazoned with the word “protest” to voice their dissent.

Despite the huge crowd, there has been no heavy police presence.

Only policemen in a few patrol cars have been seen monitoring the area.

The rally has a carnival like atmosphere with traders doing brisk business selling food and drinks, T-shirts and souvenirs.

Since Sunday morning, several PKR and Hindraf leaders rallied the crowd with speeches and shouts of Reformasi! and Minyak turun!.

Crowd had been increasing since 10am.

Among those expected to speak later are PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat , vice president Mohamad Sabu, Nik Aziz, DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang and PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
