My contact at the scene yesterday estimated the crowd at 30,000-50,000.  It was a huge show of support for Nizar.

Another Perakian reports:

Taiping was jammed and packed with supporters. The police presence was felt with a helicopter above. Pakatan had 30,000 supporters compared to 5,000 for BN. We had fun with the Mexican wave, Indian dancing, crowd singing, families on an outing, young adults and old retirees. All converged into melting pot of Malays, Chinese and Indians.

Malays holding DAP flags. Indians wearing Pas T-shirts. Chinese chatting with one and all. People came from as far as Trengganu, Tampin, Damansara, Shah Alam, etc. Only sour note was when Karpal’s was pelted with water bottles by Umno Youth.

It was massive… real massive support for Nizar. Democracy is at work. Let the best man win the by election. Nizar is a charismatic leader. He is a new found leader for PAS. The people’s general view here is that Nizar will win because the people here acknowledges him as a man who is highly educated and with Islamic credentials.

hahaha what a joke!charismatic huh?hmm maybe to u not to us here in bukit gantang. no malays want him!… there is nothing he can do…

Democracy is in the streets.
Plutocracy was in PWTC.

You can cheat the people sometimes, but you cannot cheat the people always. People are not buying governmnet controlled newspapers as much, why? They know the reason best. It’s only fair that the media cover both PR and BN the same. Watching CNN was just interesting in the run up for the presidency in the US. This should be the way in Malaysia. Then we can talk about 1st class in everything and also Islamic in what we do.

Just make sure the number of voters are in place.
“They might use the already dead to vote…!”
“The Hantus might come out to vote…!”

The ballot box is the one to watch for ok………..??????

Tun Dr. Mahatir said “Why do they need 6 hours just to count 750 votes…????”

Taipingite, with all the slanted official media (including our tax-funded RTM) and BN using tax-sponsored resources (remember maximum campaign cost is supposed to be 150KRM for an MP seat), there are still people like you seeing the tree for the forest. Anil and other bloggers owe you and I nothing and would be free to express their opinion if this country were an actual democracy. You should be asking why tax-funded media blatantly support one party if you had any integrity. By the way, I dare you to demonstrate how this is not accurate: “if nizar wins, it’s people power,… Read more »

I find it amusing when the MSM too enbarrased to show a puny BN crowd take only close up shots.

DOH DOH

BN BANNED HARAKAH AND SUARA KEADILAN PAPER ,
IS INDIRECTLY TO GIVE WARNING TO OTHERS PAPER.

DOH DOH

UNDER NAJIB ADMINSTRATON, THE STAR PAPER NEVER POST PR PHOTO OF BY ELECTION CAMPAIGN

Hidup YB Nizar the TRUE MB of Perak !
A Leader of Great principles & integrity not to mention intelligence and one who like YB Anwar Ibrahim care for ALL the RACES unlike Umno who only care for Umnoputras !
This by election is about choosing between Good Governance,
Fairness, Truth & integrity vs Corrupt, Racist Deceit & Arrogance.
Remember ALTANTUYA and all the LIESSTEALINGS of the whole stinking episode………that stinks to high heaven !

Hidup REFORMASI ! Hidup Pakatan Rakyat ! Hidup Nizar !
Hidup KEBENARAN !

Dont be over confident la…
Those are not necessarily voters
————————————-

If Nizar lost, I will drop my pants!
Are you prepared to do likewise if BN failed?

Taipingite

please do not pull numbers out of a hat.
and how about malaysiakini and all you hostile bloggers showing pictures of BN supporters?
and my sources tell me three-quarters of those so-called pakatan supporters are from outside perak, hence they are non-voters.
anyway, it’ll be a lose-lose situation for BN. if nizar wins, it’s people power, makkal sakhti, reformasi, hidup anwar and all that crap; if BN wins, then it’s vote-buying, cheating, postal votes, phantom voters.

Satria Asia

Huge crowd, but how many percent would make a difference in the results. They could have been bussed over … 🙂

My2cen

NTV7 news didn’t even mentioned a word on the huge support. They only talked about the Jerai PKR division – TV will balckout when things are doing well for PR. Let’s work harder to ensure 3 wins!

ltwatau

The Presence felt is just TERRIFIC.

Just forget about whether they are voters or not ,
if one can attract such an huge attraction is just another AWESOME.

Yes or No , the opponents will get scared out of s***….

IT’S A GOOD OMEN. LET’S HOPE AND PRAY FOR NIZAR, THE LEGITIMATE MENTRI BESAR OF PERAK

Mata Kuching

There will be more media blackouts and oppressions and baning of flags of Pakatan coalitions who are not contesting in the by-elections. If the EC and police ban us from displaying our party flags, we can still wear our party t-shirts and caps to show undivided support for pakatan’s coalition which is contesting. Nothing gonna stop us now! Hidup ketuanan rakyat.

Ex Neutral

Let’s not be over confident. Supporters are not necessary voters. So let’s have more people stepping forward and be counted. The way najib is moving, I’m afraid the days of I give my vote to PR might be enough anymore. Do more.

Ukay_Guy

Long live PAS for ALL…you’ve got someone that going to be your great leader in the near future! DS Ir Nizar – a new born leader for all malaysian !!.

PR unites the nation , BN divides & ropes the Nation!!!!
