NEWSFLASH: Penang rally draws 30,000

George Town, March 6, 9 pm — The Democratic Action Party rally in Penang — which is going on right now — has drawn more than 30,000 people, by conservative estimates.

Police sources had earlier told The Malaysian Insider that a crowd of “easily 15,000″ could be expected tonight at the Han Chiang school field here, the second-last night ceramahs can be held before Saturday’s polling. However, the crowds in Penang have just kept swelling in numbers, leaving even a veteran political observer to describe it as “amazing”.

There are frequent cries of “Just change it” in Hokkien.

The crowd is mainly Chinese, a mixed bag of young and old, with pockets of Malays and Indians. About a quarter of them are wearing red, as called upon by DAP party leaders to show its strength in numbers.

The speakers are DAP leaders Lim Kit Siang, his son and secretary-general of the party Lim Guan Eng and party veteran Karpal Singh. PKR’s only representative in Parliament until it was dissolved for these polls, Wan Azizah, the wife of Anwar Ibrahim, is also scheduled to speak. Anwar, who was in Singapore yesterday and believed to be in Kuala Lumpur tonight, is not able to make it for the rally.

There are 3 giant video screens, lending the air of a rock concert to the night, with a giant moving crane for the cameraman feeding the picture to the screens.

Pictures of the rally are expected to be posted on The Malaysian Insider late tonight.

was there but unfortunately have to run to another ceramah after siva’s speech. keadilan’s vision is thumbs up to me. although very doubtful of your chances early on, i now believe that i was wrong judging by the warm reception of the crowd to you all. and that is substantiated by the donations to your good cause.
last big push, eli tomorrow and leave the rest to god. goodness will always triump over evil. stay strong and best wishes.

Best wishes to you, Elizabeth.
My elder brother was at your Bandar Utama ceramah.
He’s an “establishment” type – GLC senior manager etc.
But this time, you’ll get his vote.
Like many of us, he’s fed-up with the direction (or lack of direction) this country is going through.

Vote for change !

congrats to elizabeth on her winning in bkt lanjan. here’s a picture I’ve taken during your ceramah. Dare I say, you delivered a well structured speech with substances. Residents at BU are looking forward for better improvements in terms of security. the BURA members are doing their job well but I believe there is stil much improvements to be made. The was house robbery incidents in BU7. The resident did not only lost his belongings, money, but also his cars. Robbers just drove his cars off. The notion of anyone could be a victim intimidates. I do hope you can implement better secruity for the residents safety well.

Alas, congratulations on your winning again
