Some 50 people gathered in Jalan Pasar, Kuala Lumpur, this morning to protest the sharp hike in fuel prices which came into effect at the stroke of midnight.
The peaceful protest attracted a huge crowd of onlookers who cheered from the sidelines and many gave the thumbs up in approval.
Armed with a large banner condemning the price hike, the protesters marched 200 metres under the watchful eyes of some 20 police personnel, including members of the Light Strike Force.
The protesters, who were led by DAP parliamentarians, dispersed about an hour later at 12.10pm.
