Despite being declared illegal and the Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein predicting a low turnout, a large yellow-clad crowd descended upon Dataran Merdeka last night for the 'Janji Demokrasi' (Promise of Democracy) rally.

Although Dataran Merdeka itself was cordoned off to facilitate preparations for this morning's National Day parades, the 280-metre stretch from the cordon to a square outside the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) headquarters were packed with people, many of whom were wearing Bersih's signature yellow.
