10,000 northerners to join rally, says Bersih

Police remove anti-rally posters in George Town.
GEORGE TOWN: Bersih expects about 10,000 people from the northwestern part of the peninsula to join this weekend’s rally in Kuala Lumpur.
Bersih Vice-Chairman Toh Kin Woon told FMT today that his confidence was based on the positive response given to road shows in Penang, Kedah and Perlis.
Toh, who is Bersih’s coordinator for the northern region, also said he was not concerned over the appearance of anti-Bersih posters and banners in George Town this morning.
He said Bersih expected some people to be against its cause, but remained confident that the majority of Malaysians were in support of it.
“We need not worry too much about the negative elements so long as they don’t incite or engage in violence,” said Toh.
George Town police have removed about 15 banners and posters, which were found mostly in the Jelutong and Gelugor areas.
City OCPD ACP Mior Farid Alathrash Wahid warned that police would be tough against the culprits behind the anti-Bersih poster campaign.
“We warn those who put up the posters and banners to stop doing so, or else action will be taken against them,” he said.
“We urge the public to inform the police immediately if they come across such banners and posters.”
Some of the posters issued death threats on those intending to take part in the Kuala Lumpur rally.
