See You Guys There...6 July 2008 (Malaysiakini)

(My house somewhere near the stadium...)

New venue for July 6 protest

The ‘one million people’ protest which was previously scheduled to be held at Padang Timur, Petaling Jaya has been moved to the Kelana Jaya Stadium.

According to PKR Youth Chief Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin, the decision to relocate was made during a party meeting held last night.
It is believed that the meeting was held at PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim’s residence in Bukit Segambut .
The Kelana Jaya stadium has some 50,000 seats and its field can also accommodate the same amount of people.
When contacted, Anti-Inflation Coalition (Protes) secretary Dr Hatta Ramli also confirmed the relocation but declined to elaborate.
The protest is against the recent fuel price hike.

A good move indeed as this can reduce the chance of the joint forces of police and army in harassing the protestors.
