There were no protests in Malaysia, as groups of more than four (4) people are prohibited from gathering together without a permit from the police!

Article 10 of Malaysia's constitution guarantees freedom of assembly, however the Police Act of 1967 severely restricts its exercise in practice.

No more than four persons may assemble in public without a police license.

Police are empowered to break up unlicensed demonstrations, arrest participants, and use force if orders to disperse are ignored.

So folks, in Malaysia there is less freedom and less respect for human rights than in many other countries and territories including Hong Kong, China.

Surely it is time this changed?
