 Yes indeed who's next to be killed in custody?. The woman holding the poster (apologies for not capturing her face) is Teoh Beng Hock's (who was killed in mysterious circumstances, when he was being questioned during a MACC investigation) sister.
 All the MPs (members of Parliament) and DUNs (state Assembly members) on stage - good at what they know best - give speeches. YB Roziah the self elected campaign manager for all of them ...

 Thenmoli,organiser for PSWS with her hubby, Barak and daughter, Rosalind. Thenmoli training them for marches to come. Rosalind and Barak watch out.
 The faceless women of the march.
 The lovely, smiling gentlemen who supported the cause ... eh do you all know what you're marching for?
 Chitra from Pertubuhan Advokasi Masyarakat Terpinggir Kuala Lumpur dan Selangor(PAMT) assisting a woman who was exhausted after the 3Km march ... need water and first brigade ... anyone out there?
 The kids loved the balloons and they made sure they took a bundle ... his mum assisted him of course :-)
 This is the Amal group from PAS taking a break. They were the ones who provided security and guided the marchers through the 3 Km walk.
 Maria, Maria ... penat ke?
 This is the WCC group bitten by the rhythm of the durms ... they sang a poem composed by Prema Devaraj (3rd from left).
 Siva from Jerit didn't like this kid stealing her light ... note her thumbs down for the kid!!! Siva needs child care training don't you agree?
