Malaysian Bar Council's 'Walk for Justice', Putrajaya
PDRM roadblocks caused many of us who were driving to the 'Walk for Justice' Protest March by the Malaysian Bar Council to make a detour every time we came to a road leading towards the Palace of Justice in Putrajaya this morning.
I went there with MENJ who snapped thes photos as I was driving. After the 3rd roadblock, I managed to get through after pointing out to the policeman that I was heading to the Masjid Putra.
I understand that the policemen manning the roadblocks were only doing their duty but to have their superiors order such measures against lawyers gathering to march and handover a memorandum was to me just a tad paranoid.
We are talking about lawyers here not social misfits like the Mat Rempits!
I'm bushed now so am just going to share pictures that MENJ took with me.
I had written in detail just now but the computer crashed and the current Blogger system somehow fails to auto -save hence I had to do it all over again. This is why I am sort of tired and am writing sparsely.
Anyway, I'll let the Malaysiakini video and our pictures speak for themselves.
Good night Malaysia!
