KUALA LUMPUR: Thousands gathered at Dataran Merdeka here on Labour Day on Thursday to protest against the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

Many came as early as 8am to enjoy the cool morning, some bringing their families, and waited for others to arrive to take part in the anti-GST rally.

They had gathered at several areas, among them, the KLCC, outside the Sogo departmental store in Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman and the National Mosque.

At about 2pm, the protesters, most wearing red t-shirts, and carrying banners and placards with anti-GST slogans walked in orderly fashion to Dataran Merdeka.
