BN can say anything about us. But all of us know that we need each other in this country, Malaysia. It is not about race anymore. It is about unity under Pakatan Rakyat that all of us witness. I felt so touched when watching this video.

LIVE REPORTS11.40pm: Traffic congestion worsens and motorists continue to snake their way home. Some are even still trying to get to the stadium.
Malaysiakini reporter Aidila Razak was unable to make it to the stadium as she has been stuck in traffic for four hours.Including those caught in traffic jams all around Petaling Jaya, the crowd is estimated at 120,000 - making it one of the biggest rallies in recent times.11.27pm:Although the event is over, there are still people dressed in black walking towards the stadium from a couple of kilometres away.
Traffic is at an absolute standstill from least five kilometres away in various direction and many who were heading to the rally are still stuck.
This includes the Damansara-Puchong highway from the Federal Highway in one direction and Kelana Jaya LRT station in the other.11.25pm: Met by reporters later, Anwar says he is impressed by the spontaneous turnout despite the rally only being called on Monday.
"I would not quit until we reach Putrajaya, until we expose all (fraud) and claim Putrajaya for the rakyat.
"They deserved it as we, Pakatan, won the popular vote,” he says.
Anwar then announced that there is to be another rally on Saturday in Penang, while they are still considering holing one in Ipoh on Friday.http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/229564
10.45pm: Gelang Patah MP Lim Kit Siang takes to the stage, after having earlier arrived via the back of a motorcycle.
He begins by thanking all Malaysians, even those who did not support the Pakatan coalition, for their commitment towards making the country and people stronger and states that now is the time to “turn our resolve into the tasks that can move our country forward”.
“Foremost is the need to properly account for all of the irregularities during an election that was not only the dirtiest election in our country’s history, but also the most marred in its process.
“We support Bersih’s people’s tribunal as an essential step for justice and transparency. We call on all Malaysians to come forward to share their experiences and help us get to the truth,” he says, and adds Pakatan also supports electoral petitions.The DAP supremo says a victory that is earned through money, lies and manipulation is not a victory at all."The Malaysia I know is one that believes in fairness. The Malaysia that I know is one that believes in decency."10.40pm: The way out of the stadium, heading towards Paradigm Mall is clogged as the car ferrying Abdul Khalid Ibrahim is forced to slow down as many people ask the latter to roll down his window so that they may take snapshots with him.
Khalid, meanwhile, smiles and graciously accomodates the requests of the crowd comprising of those leaving the stadium and those just heading in.10.39pm: Pakatan Rakyat supremo Anwar Ibrahim declares that the people of Malaysia, be they Malay, Chinese, Indian, Kadazan or Dayak, want free and fair election.
He is taking a dig at Utusan Malaysia’s inflammatory headline yesterday, "Apa lagi Cina mahu?".
Anwar says every Malaysian, regardless of race, want to reclaim their rights and they want BN to fall.
The crowd, which has now swelled to 80,000 responds enthusiastically, raising their fists in a show support.
10.26pm: With no traffic police guiding traffic, civilians have taken it upon themselves to help unclog the roads.
Almost all cars have their windows down and most are honking rhythms, in what appears to be the most jubilant traffic jam in the Klang Valley.
Along the LDP, people are still making their way to the stadium on foot.Most of them wear black, to symbolise protest against what they allege as "electoral fraud".
Columns of cars and motorbikes, parked along the road and believed to belong to Pakatan supporters, have contributed to the traffic congestion.
