Police agree to allow May Day rally, with conditions

After several discussions with authorities, the organisers of the anti-goods and services tax (GST) rally scheduled for tomorrow claimed they have been given permission to gather at Jalan Raja, the main road facing Dataran Merdeka.

Organising committee member PAS deputy president Mohamad Sabu said the participants will don red colour, as a symbol of the struggles of the labour force, while the Jalan Raja road will be closed for the rally scheduled to start at 2pm.

Mohamad Sabu, who is widely known as Mat Sabu, said this was agreed to in his discussions with the Dang Wangi district police chief Zainuddin Ahmad yesterday.

The organisers have also agreed to the police request not to enter Dataran Merdeka and they expect the huge number of participants to flood into to the adjacent Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman and Jalan Raja Laut.

However, Mat Sabu said, the police will not allow the participants to march. They must instead "walk" to Jalan Raja from the four determined gathering locations - Masjid Negara, Sogo departmental store, Dataran Maybank and KLCC.
