Police stopped KT victory celebration at Civic Center

Tonight starting from 8pm the Barisan Rakyat were supposed to hold a peaceful victory celebration of the Kuala Terengganu by-election victory at the PJ Civic Center (more accurately at the tarmac in from of MBPJ or Majlis Bandaran Petaling Jaya. Mats were laid on the floor and food were placed on top. The Barisan Rakyat team in the blue Mercedes van arrived and the food from Kuala Terengganu were added to those already laid there. It was then the police arrived and surrounded us. Just imagine, they sent not only very many police against this peaceful gathering, they even brought the FRU or the Malaysian riot squad. The one in charge didn't heed the pleading and gave the order to dispersed a few times. So we had no choice but carried the food over to the Lotus Restaurant opposite the road where we had our peaceful celebration.

Don't the police have better things to do than to harass peaceful gathering which pose no threat to the nation's security?
