Night Vigil Against Internal Security Act (ISA) @ Penang

On Friday evening, there was a candlelight vigil at the front of Dewan Sri Pinang. There were about 200-300 participants came to express the same unsatisfactory concern over Malaysian’s government’s use of the Internal Security Act.

The police didn’t allow us to walk a circle around the monument outside of the building. Every one of us know that the policemen are just doing their job and they don’t have any reason to forbid citizens from walking around that platform. Nonetheless we gave in. We were there for a peaceful vigil so we didn’t want any riot or bad things to happen.

Steven Sim has posted his piece on this with many more pictures.
