KLCC flashmob organisers warned via Facebook

The Kuala Lumpur City Park Bhd, KLCC Urusharta Sdn Bhd and Suria KLCC Sdn Bhd, have threatened to take an injunction order against the organisers of the Flashmob 1000 Malaysians appreciate Christmas with police permit.

The organisers are inviting at least 1000 people to come to KLCC to appreciate the indoor Christmas tree. This is of course related to the recent successful passing of the controversial Peaceful Assembly bill. The bill limits the ways in which Malaysians can assemble or gather in public places. This event is also held in conjunction with the Global Human Rights Day.

ps: Honestly,  I'm not sure how much political mileage the organisers will get. If anything, it's going to disrupt businesses at KLCC. At the same time, if this trend continues, organisers of such events will start losing  public support. Remember how pumped up everyone was in the early days of Reformasi?
