From The Star about the Pakatan rally held today at Dataran PJ..
PETALING JAYA: People are gathering in big numbers at Dataran PJ for Pakatan Rakyat's rally Saturday.
The rally is among several organised by the opposition to protest the results of the May 5 general election.
Police have warned that the rally is illegal as they have not received the 10-day notice as required by law under the Peaceful Assembly Act.
