Parti Keadilan against Petronas

My first protest

I didn't actually take part in a protest, don't be silly. I was merely a spectator to one. It was about 3pm today when I received a message from my friend saying that there was a protest going on outside of KLCC. Apparently, a group of Parti Keadilan supporters were protesting over the recent 30 sen increase in fuel prices, and they were calling for the downfall of Barisan Nasional.

It was pretty interesting. For those of you who, like me, have never seen a real life protest before, here are a few pics.

They were shouting 'BN...bla bla bla, BN.... bla bla bla'. I think they were basically calling for Barisan to buck up, or step down, or something.

Hmm... I was thinking .. if the government/Petronas found out who printed them banners ... the printer would go out of business.
