Rallies to go on in spite of top cop's warning
KUALA LUMPUR: Despite the stern warning from Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar yesterday, the organisers of all three rallies on July 9 will be going ahead with their plans.
Bersih 2.0 rally organiser Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan said she would meet with Ismail today to discuss matters relating to the rally and would address the public further after the meeting.
"But as it stands, Bersih will continue with the gathering," she said.
Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin said the wing's counter-rally to Bersih would go on, "no matter what happens".
The Rembau member of parliament also took a dig at Ismail, saying the police should not threaten the people. "It is incumbent upon the police to protect citizens and not to threaten them."
Khairy said many protocols were in place for people going to the rally under Umno Youth's banner.
"We have had many safety and security briefings to make sure Umno Youth will not contribute to violent acts on July 9," he said, adding that "crowd control officers" would be among the wing's people.
Khairy will be sailing to Gaza on a humanitarian mission at the time of the rally, so Umno Youth information chief Datuk Rizal Merican will head the gathering.
Meanwhile, Pertubuhan Pribumi Perkasa Negara (Perkasa) vice-president Musli Oli said the police could arrest as many people as they wanted, but it would not change their message.
"The people are no longer afraid because we are becoming increasingly aware of our rights to freedom to choose our government."
In a surprising deviation from what his president, Datuk Ibrahim Ali, has been saying, Musli said he believed Perkasa and Umno Youth should join forces with Bersih.
"If there is dishonesty on the government's part, all political parties must band together to correct that error, in this case, unfair election processes," he said.
Ibrahim could not be reached for comment.

It is a bit paradoxical when Umno Youth is going ahead with the rally when the UMNO Youth Chief, Khairy Jamaluddin is nowhere to be seen.
He will be safe and sound on board a flotilla sailing to Gaza on a humanitarian mission at the time of the rally. I am sure that no Israeli soldier will shoot at him because he's a VIP (very irritating Pu**mak)....
But if he is shot in the head, then what can I say? Bravo you Jews! You have surely done us a good service by eliminating him.
So, it seems like UMNO Youth Chief have gone MIA (missing in action) on that day where Patriot will go head to head with Bersih. Such a cowardice act by the UMNO Youth Chief.
I can't even bear to write his name twice because I feel like vomitting. Uwek! Uwek! Uwek!
An obvious hit and run action by this dude is now a signature to those who studies his modus operandi.
By far, he excelled Anwar Ibrahim in strides and Anwar is the one who should be learning a trick or two from him instead. That is if Anwar wants to be a Prime Minister before the age of 40.
And Anwar had passed that prime age where he will be a competent Prime Minister because he has not yet proven himself to be a efficient leader in PKR or even Pakatan Rakyat.
An old person should not become a Prime Minister because he will be senile and forget that he is a CIA agent, so he is definitely out.
Old, wrinkled person like Anwar Ibrahim should definitely give way to a much younger generation like the UMNO Youth Chief who have gone MIA.
This is because you could drop dead tomorrow after having a heart attack while fuc**ng a "China Doll" and someone younger has a longer life span.
Surely a mentor could sacrifice the position for his apprentice.
