KUALA LUMPUR: Those attending the peace rally at Bukit Jalil National Stadium tomorrow have been urged to bring the Jalur Gemilang and wave it during the event.  

This is one of the request by the People's Alliance for Peace Malaysia. 

The rally is expected to be attended by 200,000 people. 

Peace Malaysia secretary Norizan Sharif, in a statement yesterday, said the public were also encouraged to chant the “We want peace!” slogan while non-governmental organisations were recommended to carry banners calling for peace. 

He said the public were advised to be at the stadium early as the entrance would be open from 1pm.  

Performances by artistes will, however, begin at 5pm. 

Those arriving from Johor, Malacca, Negri Sembilan, Sabah and Sarawak are required to enter the stadium through the blue and violet entrance. 

Those from Federal Territory, Selangor, Kedah and Perlis are to enter through the red and yellow entrance while those from Kelantan, Terengganu, Pahang, Perak and Penang are to enter through the green entrance. 

Norizan said the use of public transport was highly recommended, as LRT services to the stadium would be extended to 3am. 

The public are also warned against bringing sticks, umbrellas, canned or bottled drinks into the stadium and asked to co-operate with security officers who will be wearing red arm-bands with the word “Peace.”
