• Touch N Go card, if you are joining us at KLSentral
• placards, posters, chanting, shouting or disturbing traffic and others. This is a peaceful assembly. Even though we don’t foresee police intervention or stopping us from entering the trains or KLCC, it is better to be vigilant, so please move and act in order and as quiet as possible. If police stops and questions you, just tell them that we’re going to KLCC for a New Year party. We have contacted human rights lawyers from Bar Council so they will be on standby in case any chaos arises.
