OK I just found another net cafe open, The whole city has shut down!!!!!
When I came to type this before I got stuck behind police lines and wasnt able to rejoin the main body of the protest. So far things havent escalated
any further but you can feel the tension.
Police have dispersed most of the crowd into smaller and smaller groups that are now scattered across a wide area, police are trying to keep them from
reforming and are so far succeeding.
Most of the protesters have come from outside of KL and have travelled hrs to be here so they wont be leaving anytime soon.
its kinda weird, as a white guy no one has bothered me, people have been coming up saying thank you for being here, when I was gassed all the locals
came over with water to wash my eyes and salt to put under my tongue (actually helps for some reason) but the cops just ignored me. I was standing 2
feet away when they were bashing some guys head in and they didnt even look at me.
I was walking around with an english guy who had a cam so got some footage and will upload when we manage to get back to the hotel.
thanks for all your concernsabout my safety
P.s as a side note this is not a racial issue, malaysia has 3 races Chinese, Malay and Indian and all are protesting together. the media is trying to
say this is somehow racial but its not.
