Despite the disruption by the mob at Speakers’ Square yesterday, there were more positive scenes at the Himpunan Hijau 2.0 solidarity gathering in Penang.

Thanks to Tan Seng Hai for the photos.

  1. Anil: Just to add on to some of the positives:
    – Majority of those who participated in the protest are from the 20’s to 30’s age group. Penang’s young people are coming out.
    – This is probably the biggest gathering of people in Penang (apart from poltical ceramahs) protesting in years.
    – when I asked several youngsters how they came to know about this protest, nearly all said from Facebook. Social media and politics are here to stay.
    – a pak cik went round and thanked the organisers after the event

    • That’s great to hear the young people are becoming more environmentally conscious, thanks to social media.

    • All the more reason to have FREE WIFI coverage every inch of Penang Island & mainland!
      I am looking forward to the day I can access anilnetto.com while chasing after wild boars in the thick forest of Pantai Keracut!

  2. Shame to the news segment on TV1, TV3 and Astro Awani, instead of giving the due coverage on rakyat’s wishes on Himpunan Hijau, they choose to focus on the ‘capability’ of the police in ‘maintaining order’ of the peaceful event!
