DAP’s Esplanade rally draws 50000


Thousands have flocked to Pakatan rallies at the Esplanade in Penang Island and Permatang Pauh on mainland Penang as news of the DAP decision to use PKR and Pas logos as a back-up alternative sweeps across the state.

At the Esplanade, one eyewitness estimated the crowd at 50000, as the full impact of the ROS decision sinks in.

At Permatang Pauh, some 2000 people have gathered for a PKR ceramah at Kubang Semang while on the island, a large DAP rally is in progress at the Esplanade.

Not surprisingly, blogger Papa Gomo has apparently seen the light and is reportedly not going to stand as an independent in Permatang Pauh. Instead he will back the BN candidate.

Meanwhile at the Kelang Megafeast (that breaks Bolehland book of dubious records), Michelle Yeoh praised Najib’s leadership and urged the people to continue to support him. We should not ever think she is Aung San Soo Kyi’s alter ego. Soo kyi and her honour is miles apart from Michele the actress only. She is only an actress who is paid to do play act like that night she … to praise (Najib). I cannot forgive Mchelle Yeoh for her continuing her support for a corrupted government. She of all should know the situation of Malaysia. Perhaps these same millionaires who… Read more »


looks like tunglang has lost his ‘food-taste” now that he has disappeared from anilnetto.com radar & has appeared “uncertain” on which one to vote for ????

BN could be listening to its feng shui master that the rocket logo is too auspicious, and the qi at Han Chiang school field must be diverted to BN such that the 1malaysia concert there could do the trick. However, the feng shui master could never change the decision of the rakyat, who are resolved to vote for Rocket, Moon or Eye!!!


The bEnd is indeed going to happen on May 5. There is no doubt about it. Thanks to ROS for the impetus!


The power of the Internet and smartphones is well demonstrated here that the DAP is able to draw such a mammoth crowd within such a short period.

SL Wong (@wong8898)

I’m sure Chinese will not scare or afraid of PAS hudud law now and the most scary is for us to live with shame, no dignity & torture under the rule of devil BN that is full of manipulations, corruptions, injustice, undemocracy, racist & inhumanity treatment. We rather die than live with shame. In this critical moment, we Chinese must standout & make them hear loudly & clearly we are not afraid of PAS hudud & we are align with PAS to defence our lovely country from keep molesting by the devil BN and it must be fully … disappeared.… Read more »

As in 1969 and 2008, Penang will once again lead in the PR takeover of Putrajaya on 5 May 2013. Maintain this tradition of PENANG LEADS with tenacity and grit.
