Why were the FRUs there?Posted: November 10, 2008
Yesterday, the weekly Anti-ISA vigil at the padang opposite of Amcorp Mall in PJ was also to commemorate the 1st anniversary of the BERSIH rally last year.
What gets to me, and what I seriously don’t understand, is why there were FRUs at the vigil last night. These vigils have been happening every weekend, all around the country, for more than a month now. And not ONCE in ANY of these vigils, did we even have a slight problem. No FRUs, no arrests, all was well and fine.
What is so different about THIS vigil, that the police felt the need to block access to Amcorp Mall from as early as 7pm? What happened during THIS vigil, that the police felt the need to arrest certain people?
Could it be because RPK has been released?
Or maybe because BERSIH was one of the organisers for THIS vigil, and so there was a problem?
Interesting to note is that the vigil in Ipoh went on without a single glitch.
So why were they there in PJ?
