HOW MANY WILL BE AT THE ANTI-BERSIH RALLY?
Jamal Yunos threatens to unleash 300,000 Red Shirts.
Gerakan Akarumbi UMNO Malaysia (GAUM) will deploy over 3,000 members.
Makkal Sakthi? 300-500, that is, if they turn up at all.
*Personally, I think at 5,000 at most but they could be violent.

Bersih 5: Red Shirts harassing people, women being targeted http://dlvr.it/MhhZnB
KUALA LUMPUR: A large group of what seemed to be Red Shirts supporters had gathered at the Masjid Jamek LRT station by 8am Saturday, harassing all and sundry.
Several reporters and Bersih supporters who were trying to buy breakfast at the stalls nearby were harassed if they got too close to the group. Many decided to buy their food elsewhere.
Women were singled out. Even those dressed for work were whistled at and given catcalls.
KUALA LUMPUR: It appears that Red Shirts leader Jamal Yunos might not make it to his own Bersih 5 counter-rally this morning.
Jamal, who is also the Sungai Besar Umno division chief, was arrested by police at a hotel he was staying in.
In a statement posted on a WhatsApp group earlier today, Jamal said he was taken to Selangor police headquarters in Shah Alam at around 1.30am.
“I was about to leave the hotel (when the police arrested him),” said Jamal.
He however, expressed hope that even in his absence, the Red Shirts’ rally tomorrow will still go on.
“I hope my arrest will not break the spirit of my Red Shirts supporters.”
The group’s legal adviser Mohd Imran Tamrin when contacted at about 2am, said he along with several others were on the way to the police headquarters to gather more information.
It is believed that Jamal’s arrest was conducted under Section 147 of the Penal Code for rioting.

Elusive Jamal applauds police for arresting Bersih leaders http://dlvr.it/MhXYGX .
Sungai Besar Umno chief Jamal Md Yunos has applauded the arrests of Bersih chairperson Maria Chin Abdullah and Bersih secretariat manager Mandeep Singh ahead of the Bersih 5 rally tomorrow.
However, Jamal himself, who leads the red-shirts movement and will hold a counter-rally against Bersih tomorrow, remains elusive as no one appears to know his exact location.
Police have thus far arrested one of Jamal’s lieutenants, Razali Zakaria, who acted as spokesperson when the red-shirts began camping at Masjid Negara today, one of Bersih’s gathering points tomorrow.
“The arrests of Maria and Mandeep by the police are justified to maintain peace in the country.
“It is obvious that Bersih has an evil agenda to incite the people to take to the streets and topple Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s government, which was democratically elected through elections,” Jamal said in a statement.
He also criticised Malays who backed Bersih.

After Red Shirts, Now These Orange Shirts Want To Join The Anti-Bersih Bandwagon
Move aside, yellow and red.
A group of ‘orange shirts’ took to the streets yesterday, 16 November, to protest against the upcoming Bersih rally happening this Saturday
Malaysiàn Makkal Sakti Party (MMSP) said on its official Facebook page that about 300 youths from the party’s youth committee held a protest against Bersih for “conducting illegal gatherings, immature manner of calls for political reforms and uncalled for demands of resignation of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak”.
MMSP president Datuk R.S. Thanenthiran said that the protest was a success after seeing that many ‘Baju Oren‘ (orange shirts) came to show their support and gathered together on a Wednesday, which is a working day for many.
