Massive crowd at Anwar’s KL ceramah
Show of support on final night of campaign
Thousands turned out in Kampung Baru, Kuala Lumpur, last night in a final show of support for Anwar Ibrahim as he awaits the verdict this morning in his trial on sex charges. Sultan Sulaiman Club padang was filled to the brim with many more crowding neighbouring buildings to listen to speeches by leading opposition party leaders. Thousands are expected to turn out for a rally at the Jalan Duta courts today. In anticipation, the police have embarked on a massive psy-war campaign on Twitter and Facebook, abandoning any pretence of neutrality and parroting in hectoring tones the Barisan Nasional’s themes of illegality, potential violence and disruption of the social fabric.
