Five of the Indian expat organizers managed to gather people from Indian expat community in support of Mr. Anna Hazare at Al Mamzar Beach Park. It was all managed by the 5 people using Facebook & via BlackBerry Text messaging over the network. People fed-up of political atrocities & bureaucratic corruption in India came out & gathered in the Al Mamzar Beach Park, March started at 8.30 PM Local time. Intercepted & Dispersed by Dubai police after a kilometer.
Police arrested 5 of the organizers and referred to public prosecution. Rest of the crowd was advised to disperse & go home since such activities without permission are Illegally & not-allowed in UAE.
It is evident that the organizers are aware of the law but willingly tried defying it to express solidarity with their leader back in India.
Sorry GUYS, respect the law or face the consequences.
