NONE2pm: Stadium Merdeka - Overall, the marches to the stadium has been mostly smooth, with the police helping to control traffic.
There are impromptu marches all over downtown Kuala Lumpur and more of this can be expected because some groups, such as one currently in Masjid Negara, will only march after zohor prayers, which means they will march only after the rally is officially underway.
2.10pm: Stadium Merdeka - The rally kicks off with the singing of the national anthem as thousands of participants still making their the way into the stadium.

There are loudspeakers mounted outside the stadium for the benefit of those still queuing to go in.

“Keep tweeting and posting all day, keep talking, keep sharing, every voice matters, every effort adds on to building a flood of hope, and by the day dwarfing the dam of intolerance and aloofness built by those who rule today. 

“That one day, the dam will break and sunlight will shine again in our lives,” he said in the statement.
2.08pm: Stadium Merdeka - PAS Johor rep Suhaizan Kaiat speaks on issues concerning Pulau Batu Putih and the Iskandar project in Johor.

PAS chief Abdul Hadi Awang and secretary-general Mustapha Ali arrive in the stadium.

Shortly after, Tijah representing the Peninsular Orang Asli addresses the rally on indigenous rights and alleges that much of Orang Asli land has been robbed from them.

He says today should be remembered in history and that Orang Asli rights should not be denied, and for them to be treated fairly and equally.

NONEBersih co-chairperson Ambiga Sreenevaasan and PKR veep N Surendran are seen in the stadium.
2.20pm: Stadium Merdeka gate - Despite police warning to participants not to bring children, a family has ignored the order.

Suzilawani Mohd, 32, says she didn’t feel scared to bring her children to the rally because she expects that the government will not take a tough stand.

“Last time, I might be afraid because of the tear gas and water cannons,” she says, with her husband Naveed Ghalam Rasool beside her.

Asked about her reasons for taking part, she says she wants to experience the feeling of a rally before the election.
2.25pm: New groups of rally participants, with some of them wearing the iconic Bersih yellow T-shirts and holding PAS flags, start to march from the National Mosque to Stadium Merdeka.

NONE“We are not favouring any political party. We fight for the rakyat. I hope you all will come out and vote in the 13th general election.”

2.53pm: It is Himpunan Hijau chairperson Wong Tack's turn to give speech.

Without wasting any time, he urged the people to rise up and change the government come the next general elections.

“All this time BN has been in power due to strong support (from Felda settlers). God willing this time Felda folks will rise and march to Putrajaya.”

3.04pm:
The first part programme of the rally has ended. Popular singer Ito from the rock group Blues Gang sings a song called ‘Ubah ini kali lah’ (Let's change this time), followed by a poetry reading by national laureate A Samad Said.

He jokes that he had never expected his poetry could be used as a weapon in this country.

“Even poems have become weapons,” he says in a short speech before reciting his poem ‘On the field of history’.

He adds that he has always wanted to witness a ‘sea of humanity’.

NONEHe says Malaysians are holding concurrent rallies in Jordan, London and Auckland.

The fake message told participants that their payment for taking part in the rally was ready for collection at PKR headquarters.

“Did anyone pay you RM150?” he asks the crowd, who respond “No!”

3.30pm: Outside the stadium, some participants are seen shaking hands with the police in appreciation of their service. One attendee from Sungai Petani is spotted thanking the police before rushing off to take a bus home. The police replies with a warm smile.

3.38pm: The police revises one of its earlier Twitter postings, clarifying that the estimation of 80,000 crowd in the stadium at 2.45pm was a “technical mistake”.

“The real number will be announced by the Kuala Lumpur police chief or district police chief,” read the latest message.
3.52pm: Earlier at about 12pm, Mohamad Sabu who is the rally's secretariat chairperson told Malaysiakini that the organiser will not entertain controversial carpet dealer Deepak's request to speak in the stadium.

Hi Malaysians ! This is the first time in Malaysian history that a rally attracted such a huge turn out; even the commonwealth games staged by Malaysia cannot be said to have attracted even 5% of such a huge turnout such as this one. This stupendously huge turn out tells us all Malaysians that it is time for change.

This huge rally also tells us the most important message of all; it tells us that middle class Malays have come to realize that UMNO has FAKED their claim to represent all Malays, because this rally is organized by the opposition, Pakatan Rakyat. After 60 years of faking the claim that only UMNO can help he Malays; middle class Malays have belatedly come to ask themselves, IF UMNO IS DOING SUCH A GREAT JOB OF HELPING THE MALAYS, AS UMNO CLAIMS, THEN WHY IS IT THAT THE MALAYS ARE IN THE SAME POSITION AS THEY WERE IN SINCE 1957 ? I say to my Malay friends, if UMNO & Mahatir have done such a great job of helping the Malays then why have you not progressed ?

I will tell you Malaysians (Malays & Non Malays)what is the most obvious & glaring issue that exposes the dismal failure of Mahatir & UMNO to progress both the wealth & living conditions of the Malays; Mahatir & UMNO has failed to establish a Malay commerce middle class...NO MALAY SHOP KEEPERS, NO MALAY EXPORTERS, NO MALAY IMPORTERS, NO MALAY WHOLESALERS, NO MALAY TRADERS ALMOST NO MALAY FAMILY OWNED BUSINESSES, NO bona fide Malay contractors......I can go on & on. 60 years of Mahatir coddling has produced zero Malay representation in the above fields of generating wealth. Mahatir & UMNO has only produced a couple of million Malay bureaucrats & civil service WALLAHS !

I say to my Malay friends Mahatir & UMNO far from improving your stake in Malaysia's wealth creation, HAS CRIPPLED YOU and made you ineffectual & useless. UMNO has and will lead into a dead end. Time for change and don't worry about the Chinese, they are your asset and providers.
