KUALA LUMPUR: Organisers of anti-Icerd (International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination) rally have repeatedly remind the crowd to abide by the law and have a peaceful rally.

"Don't commit any provocation and make sure speeches do not incite hatred.

"We want to have a peaceful rally so that our message reaches its intended purpose," rally director Kamaruzaman Mohamad told the crowd at Dataran Merdeka via loud speaker.

He also reminded the participants to maintain  the cleanliness of the venue.

"Set a good example. If you see rubbish on the road, take it home. Whatever you do, don't litter," he said.

The rally is aimed at celebrating the non-ratification of the United Nations covenant.

Six main roads around Dataran Merdeka have been closed since 6am for the rally, which is expected to be held from 2pm to 6pm today.

The affected roads are Jalan Hishamuddin (before the tunnel), Leboh Pasar, Jalan Tun Perak (from Masjid Jamek LRT station onwards), Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman (near Sogo), Jalan Raja Laut (near Summit Hotel) and Bulatan Dato Onn.
