As Sabah Bersih pushes ahead with its rally this weekend, all eyes are now on the 6km democracy walk scheduled on Sunday.
The rally’s organisers have been coy about the ultimate destination of the march, which they said Sabah police have “discouraged”, and can land them in legal trouble.
Sabah Bersih chairman Jannie Lasimbang said it is highly likely that they would be able to use their original venue, the Teluk Likas public park 2 (TATL2) tomorrow, the first day of the rally.
“The police have not said that they will close off the park. But they said they will use their discretion to maintain peace and order,” Lasimbang told reporters today.
“They have discouraged the democracy walk because they consider it a march. Under the law, organisers of a march can be fined RM10,000 if found guilty,” said Lasimbang.
Organisers will ensure that the walk will be as orderly as possible.
It will start at 9am from the park and participants will head towards the Kota Kinabalu city centre.
Lasimbang refused to reveal the end point of the walk but said they will go as far as the police allowed them.
The walk will end with speeches by organisers.
The walk is made to call for electoral reform, a clean government, strengthening parliamentary democracy, the right to peaceful assembly and to save the economy.
Kota Kinabalu district police chief ACP M. Chandra had said that the rally was illegal and that action would be taken against those who participated.
In a press conference today, Lasimbang said five meeting points have been set up to ease movement towards the rally.
They are Koperasi Pembangunan Desa building (KPD Tamu), Sabah Trade Centre, Kota Kinabalu mosque, Plaza Juta and the park’s Anjung Selera.
The first part of the rally tomorrow will begin at 3pm and will comprise activities such as workshops, talks, speeches and music performances.
The rally’s second day on August 30 will start with the Democracy Walk at 9am.
