Dataran Merdeka not approved for Bersih 3.0 rally, Apr 28

The above image shows Dataran Merdeka (Merdeka/Independance Square) located in the KL city centre in front of the Sultan Abdul Samad Building. As Dataran Merdeka is not being approved for the Bersih 3.0 rally tomorrow, KL mayor, Tan Sri Ahmad Fuad Ismail, has declared the square and all roads leading to it closed from 6am today to 6am on Sunday.

If you are a tourist in Kuala Lumpur over this weekend, if you are not too keen being caught up in crowds, the city is to be avoided tomorrow (Saturday). Instead, explore attractions outside of the city or perhaps go south to historical Malacca.

Bersih is advocating for free and fair polls for the country. Peaceful sit-in Bersih 3.0 rallies will be staged nationwide tomorrow, Dataran Merdeka being the venue for KL. In Ipoh, it will be at the Sultan Abdul Aziz Recreational Park, popularly known as the Polo Ground. The last rally, Bersih 2.0, was held on July 9 last year.
