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.
