More than 1,000 march against Assembly Bill

Members of the Bar Council and supporters are marching to Parliament House from the Lake Gardens in Kuala Lumpur, to protest the Peaceful Assembly Bill 2011 which is expected to be voted on tonight in the Dewan Rakyat. Describing the draft law as legislation that would rob the rakyat off their constitutional right, Bar Council president Lim Chee Wee has vowed that lawyers cannot watch it enter the statute books without standing up to it. The crowd exceeding 1,000 began the two-kilometre 'Walk for Freedom ' at 12.19pm to submit a memorandum opposing the law. Action is expected in front of Parliament House as activists have called on the public to gather there for three consecutive days, with effect from 11am in an 'Occupy Parliament' move. The group - the KL People's Assembly - has been behind the 'Occupy Dataran' movement.
