Two candlelight vigils will be held tonight to protest the arrest of three individuals under the draconian Internal Security Act, reports Malaysiakini.
Opposition party DAP, whose parliamentarian Teresa Kok was nabbed late last night, is holding a vigil outside its headquarters in Taman Paramount, Petaling Jaya at 7.30pm.
According to the DAP, the vigil is to express “solidarity” with the ISA detainees.
Meanwhile, another vigil is being planned at 8.30pm outside the Bukit Aman national police headquarters in Kuala Lumpur.
The ‘Remember Sept 13′ vigil, which is being organised by the Anti-ISA Movement (GMI), will take place at the entrance of the police headquarters.
