They held a brief gathering outside the Malaysiakini office at 10.00am, followed by a press conference in the Malaysiakini office.
The main NGO speaker (centre among group of speakers) was Amin Iskandar, director of the National Institute of Electoral Integrity.
NIEI chairman Yunus Ali said the MCMC’s demand that Malaysiakini pull down the video was “illogical”.
Other NGOs in the group included Writers Alliance for Media Independence (Wami), Suaram, and the bloggers’ Anak Bangsa Malaysia team.
Over in Penang, Charter 2000-Aliran has also come out with a statement in support of Malaysiakini here.
