as different as the earth and sky.
One was attended by the poor and downtrodden.
They weren't paid to attend.
They paid out of their own pockets with whatever little money they had.
Their concerns were real and personal.
They weren't sponsored, and there was no hotel room stay.
Those who came the night before spent the night in temples in and around KL.
They were probably hungry.
They were treated like criminals.
Instead of having police protection, the police attacked them.
They didn't burn flags.
They didn't scream out in a murderous manner, asking for a foreign guest to come out.
They didn't demand a petite lady to come out and face a flag and effigy burning mob.
They were all heart, nothing about ambitions and personal gain.
They had tried to meet with the PM earlier.
They didn't go home in chauffer driven cars.
Some have still not gone home.
They can't because they had nasty charges cooked up against them.
They would have lost their jobs by now.
Lulu shed tears for them.
The other group? well, as the Bernama reports, "as different as the earth and the sky".
