Kuala Lumpur Protest Against C. Rice/US (2) July 28, 2006Posted by elizabethwong in Current Affairs, International, Malaysia, Photography, Photojournalism, Politics.
SECOND DAY OF PROTEST:
Thousands marched for more than 3 km yesterday afternoon in the pelting rain, stopping briefly at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, where the Asean Regional Forum is being held and C. Rice was speaking, and later playing the piano!
The rally ended outside the US Embassy and despite the rain, everyone demonstrated for 2 hours.
There were PAS, KeADILan supporters, NGOs and even Shi’ites were out on the streets.
I was completely soaked for three hours. I didn’t have a lens hood, so my camera was drenched too.
Halfway, I ditched my tiny umbrella in favour of a large hairband, because the umbrella wasn’t doing anything to stop me from getting wet.
Alright, it was girly-pink too.
Prayers for Lebanon and Palestine
