Tens of thousands of yellow-clad Malaysians — including leaders from opposition political parties — flooded the streets of Kuala Lumpur on Nov. 19 to protest against Prime Minister Najib Razak.
The Bersih 5 rally, organized by electoral reform group Bersih 2.0, saw up to 15,000 demonstrators take to the streets to demand that Najib resign as prime minister over his alleged involvement in a multi-million dollar global misappropriation scandal involving taxpayers' money.
The carnival-like atmosphere lasted eight hours, with protestors starting at various locations in the city before they converged on the iconic Petronas Twin Towers in the heart of the Malaysia's capital.
