Switch on car lights to show support

Meanwhile, PKR leaders have urged all citizens who support free and fair elections to switch on their car headlights the whole day today.

"There are many ways to show support and for those unable to come to KL, whether they are in KK, Kuching, Labis, Kuala Pilah or whichever part of Malaysia, this is one way," Vernon Kedit, another leader from PKR Sarawak told Malaysia Chronicle.

Number of arrests so far since last night - at least 10 but many have been released

"If police stops you and and checks bag, just relax and mentally note down name of the officers, details. Don't fight or scold and if they arrest you, just SMS or Twiiter your details," said PKR director for legal affairs Latheefa Koya.

The Bar Council has set up an Urgent Arrest Team, and will be on standby to help those detained. A separate Monitoring Team will also be watching out for human rights violations.
