According to political activist Hishamuddin Rais, who is on the organising committee, the announcement of designated procession leaders was requested by the police.
He told Malaysiakini that the organisers will also be heeding a police request not to march from Dataran Merdeka.
Hishamuddin ( far right ) also announced that organisers strongly discourage the use of private vehicles by rally participants and urged them to use public transport to reach the rally points.
He said those setting up stalls to cater for the participants are only allowed to operate at the Maharajalela monorail station, the vicinity of the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall and the Hang Tuah LRT station.
Once the stadium reaches saturation point, late-comers are required to sit outside the stadium.
He also urged all participants to behave appropriately during the rally.
"This is a peaceful assembly. Please avoid all forms of provocation. Don't create chaos," he said.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
