Members of the Red Shirts movement protest outside the Malaysiakini office in Petaling Jyaa, November 5, 2011. ― Picture by Yusof Mat IsaThe Red Shirts movement ended their protest in front of Malaysiakini’s office today peacefully after the police refused them entry into the building.

Over 500 protesters marched towards the news portal’s office here at about 3.45 pm today, but met a police barricade.

The movement’s leader, Datuk Seri Jamal Yunos, briefly negotiated with the police, demanding that Malaysiakini’s management come down to meet the group.

However, after their demands were not met, Jamal ordered his supporters to disperse, promising that the Red Shirts will gather again to counter the Bersih 5 rally later this month.

The participants also irked the police after a couple of water bottles were thrown in the direction of the officers, but were asked to leave peacefully by their leaders.

  1. The red shirt gangsters covered their faces like IS, police must take note to investigate.

  2. Donations from Arab king/prince to MOI are ok, but those from Soros are not OK. Why the double standard? Both are foreign in origin. To allege that Soros is trying to topple the kleptocratically elected government is vain talk; it must be backed by proof, because allegations are cheap! The leader of the Red Shirt is apparently a ‘datuk sri.’ I wonder if the state that bestowed the title is having second thoughts about the award. Maybe it’s time to consider withdrawing it. The guy doesn’t behave like a ‘datuk’ at all. Originally a ‘datuk’ is a title for grandfather; he knows how to conduct himself. He has dignity and observes some decorum. But not Datuk Jamal head of red shirt movement; he is a menace to society.
