Please take note that there is a planned protest for Clean and Fair Elections called Bersih taking place in the areas around Dataran Medeka on April 28. This is the third time this rally has been organized.
Visitors are advised to avoid planning a holiday in KL if possible for April 27 and 28.
While the organizers have said that the Bersih 3 rally is a sit-in and would be peaceful, this might not turn out to be so as the situation would be quite dynamic, depending on how the authorities react and how the protesters behave, and whether there are instigators among the people.
Bersih 2, held on July 9 2011 resulted in a complete lock down of Kuala Lumpur. It is difficult to say how many attended Bersih 2, depending on who you ask. The numbers range from 20,000 to 50,000, with police putting up road blocks, using water cannons and tear gas.
