I was there in spirit, yelling "Reformasi!" along with Nurul Izzah - and (some say) 100,000 Anwar supporters. So far, the eye-count for the Reformasi crowd on Nomination Day at Permatang Pauh, 16 August, ranges from a low of 15,000 (Reuters) to a high of 150,000 (PKR sympathizer). But most reports concur that the BN crowd numbered at most 5,000 - not counting 3,000 police and riot squad personnel. Thanks to my old pal, T.V. Smith, for the inspired images; and also to Din Merican, PKR Program Director, for capturing the excitement of the moment. Can you feel the winds of change, people?
