FMT reports that a total of 205 police officers from the Dang Wangi and Bukit Aman police stations were deployed at Dataran Merdeka last night.
Well, I reached Dataran a little after 7pm, to do some reconnaissance on the accessibility to Dataran and to report back on twitter and to the Gabungan Janji media base.
And I was armed with 100 pieces of ABU’s 2-in-1 for delivery to our military and police personnel.
I went back home last night with just tw0 left.
I tagged 98 officers in blue with the ABU message!
Two weeks ago, dumb ass home minister Kerismudin speculated that the violence that occurred during BERSIH 3.0 would put off many people from coming for the Janji Demokrasi gathering at Dataran last night.
Malaysiakini reported him as saying then that not many were keen on the Janji Demokrasi event.
Were you at Dataran last night?
I wasn’t able to take photos last night, so I am just going to nick some from Facebook.
Malaysiakini and FMT counted the numbers out at Dataran last night at about 10,000.
I estimated at least 15,000.
Hawkeye is convinced the number is closer to 25,000.
James sms’d me to say he was awed by the crowd, which he estimated at 50,000.
Rais Yatim is still counting.
