KUALA LUMPUR: Around 100 protestors gathered in front of the KLCC As-Syirikin mosque and thereafter marched towards KLCC to protest against the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA).

The protest was led by Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia (SAMM) and supported by other NGOs such as Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM), Aids council group and Malaysian Indian Progressive Association (MIPAS).

In support, opposition MPs too made their presence in the protest namely; PAS leader Salahuddin Ayub, Batu MP Tian Chua and Sg. Siput MP Dr Jayakumar.

Other notable NGO activists such as S Arutchelvam and Badrul Hisham Sharin aka Chegu Bard were also seen at the protest.

The march which started at 2.30 pm walked towards KLCC and stopped there for almost 40 minutes to allow the opposition politicians and NGO activists to give talks in protest against the TPPA.

The protest was done in a peaceful manner despite the heavy rain which did not deter the spirit of the protesters who continued to march.

The protest was held while the 4th Global Entrepreneurship Summit 2013 was in progress at the KLCC.

The two day summit beginning today was attended by US Secretary of State John Kerry.

Anwar to attend Oct 10 anti-TPPA rally REGARDLESS of Dr M

Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has confirmed his participation in a rally against the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) which could see him share the stage with Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

That is, if his former boss confirms his attendance.

“Datuk Seri Anwar has expressed his willingness while Tun Dr Mahathir who has been a strong opponent of Malaysia signing the agreement has yet to give an affirmative answer,” said Badrul Hisham Shahrin or CheguBard, the founder of youth movement Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia (SAMM), the rally organiser.

“We are still waiting for a response from him and are optimistic that he will consider attending the final rally.”
