Latest : Peaceful Pro ISA rally cancelled
Pro ISA's Peaceful rally was called off upon receiving police advice due to the unruly GMI demonstrators.
Organisers decided to cooperate with the police in an effort to help maintain peace in Kuala lumpur after unruly GMI supporters forced police to fire tear gas and water cannons .
Earlier, their actions forced businesses in Jalan TAR and Jalan Raja Laut to shut their doors and public transportation was called to a halt. Shops in and around Sogo area suffered the same fate. Masjid Jamek was used as a meeting point making it hard for those who wanted to use the Mosque to perform their prayers.
We from Yes2ISA appaud the decission of the Pro ISA demonstration organisers as we believe in the democratic rule of law. We also sympathise with those innocent bystanders who were harmed one way or another by the actions of the unruly and disruptive GMI crowd.
We strongly condemn the provocation and unruly behaviour of the GMI supporters and hope that peace and order is restored as soon as possible.
