Thousands gather at Suara Rakyat rally

 | May 9, 2013

More than 100,000 people gathered at the stadium to hear Pakatan Rakyat leaders' post-general election ceramah.

PETALING JAYA: In a show of defiance, over 100,000 people gathered at the Stadium MBPJ in Kelana Jaya tonight to protest against the ‘stolen’ elections by the “illegitimate BN government”.

The crowd cheered and chanted to the cries made by every Pakatan Rakyat leader in attendance, led PKR supremo Anwar Ibrahim.

Leader after leader repeated the now oft-heard cry of ‘Ubah’ and ‘Ini Kali lah’, only to be cheered loudly by the crowd which had overflowed the stadium.

A steady downpour and a massive traffic jam did not deter them from coming out in droves to support Anwar and Pakatan.

Present as of 9pm were PAS deputy president Mohamad Sabu, PKR strategy director Rafizi Ramli, party vice president Chua Jui Meng and Nurul Izzah Anwar, DAP’s Ronnie Liu and many others.

Starting the ceramah session, Rafizi said that he warned PM Najib Tun Razak and Utusan Malaysia not to victimise the Chinese community.

“Don’t you dare victimise the Chinese or you shall face the wrath of Malays,” he said.

He also promised that Pakatan leaders would devote their time to find the people responsible for “stealing” the election away from the people.

“We will find and expose them. From the Election Commission (EC) officers to the bus drivers that ferry the foreigners, all of them,” said Rafizi, to the thunderous applause of the thousands.

Anwar meanwhile said that Najib was leading an illegal government as his victory was the result of massive cheating.
