The Himpunan Merah faction of the red shirts led by Sungai Besar Umno chief Jamal Md Yunos showcased its claimed multi-racial makeup today, gathering a 300-strong crowd comprising dozens of Indians and Chinese, in addition to its usual predominantly Malay line-up.

Jamal claimed that those present represent hundreds of Malay, Chinese and Indian-based NGOs, who will mobilise to face the ‘yellow shirt’ governance reform coalition Bersih 2.0 supporters, at the soon-to-be announced Bersih 5 rally.

About one-third of the crowd, 100 or so, were of Indian and Chinese descent.

However, some of the those present at the movement’s press conference in the PWTC compound today, do not seem to know the full story.

Those that Malaysiakini talked to mostly claimed that they were there to support peace, Jamal, the BN and as one claimed, to ‘destroy Bersih’, though he cannot meaningfully explain why, beyond the difference in the colour of their shirts.

Not many also seem to be aware of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) July 21 forfeiture filing to seize assets purportedly bought using monies said to be stolen from sovereign fund 1MDB, which is core to why Bersih 2.0 plan to hold the rally.
