MALAYSIA:::MTUC expects 100,000 for May Day rally

PETALING JAYA — The Malaysian Trades Union Congress expects at least 100,000 participants comprising workers and representatives of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to attend its May Day rally at Dataran Petaling Jaya on Thursday.
The rally, which MTUC said would be peaceful, is to champion the rights of workers and raise issues affecting them.
At a press conference at the MTUC office in Subang Jaya, the congress’s chairman, Wan Noorulazhar Hanafiah, stressed the rally and the one planned planned for Dataran Merdeka were not the same event.
