Despite the scorching heat, more than 2,000 people thronged the streets from the Sogo shopping complex to Dataran Merdeka, participating in the anti-Goods and Services Tax (GST) rally.

The rally, which also demands for the resignation of Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, witnessed a carnival-like atmosphere, with people mostly in black T-shirts walking along carrying placards showcasing their disagreement against the taxation system and the premier.

Stalls selling anti-GST and ‘Undur Najib’ merchandise lined the streets, with some also taking the opportunity to sell bottled water and snacks.
