|'We'll hold the line here.". Right at the frontline, Pudu Raya.|
|FRU getting ready to march in. Opposite Menara Maybank.|
I have no zoom lenses and this pic was taken pretty up close.
|Water cannon truck, 5 minutes before blasting to disperse the crowd.|
|Witnessed an arrest at Menara Maybank.|
|Afternoon prayers, at Menara Maybank. A bust is actually taking place in the building behind. 2 activists were arrested.|
I was tear-gassed the first round. After recovering the Bersih frontline had retreated 2 km back. I 'went back in' and found myself in between Bersih and FRU. These are the pics I snapped behind the FRU lines.
|Delirious after being tear-gassed and took a pic of the pavement instead.|
|FRU all lined up, lock and loaded.|
|A second before the tear-gas grenades went off.|
|Blam! Blam!! My mobile phone shuddered as FRU pounded the Bersih frontline with teargas.|
|An FRU officer retreating from the front line to regroup.|
Tear gas affects everyone- the PDRM, activists and by-standers.
|After 15 minutes, a regrouped FRU marches through the rain into the frontline again.|
|Regrouped and heading to the frontline, at Pudu Raya.|
|I managed to crash-in on this negotiation going on here. |
Dr Sivarasa Rasiah (PKR) and Datuk Ngeh Koo Ham (DAP) (face partly hidden).
|By this time, the activists' frontline was already pushed back about 3 km away. The guys are waiting further orders.|
|Look at the tough plastic cuffs.|
|The afternoon rain pelts incessantly on Jalan Pudu.|
