The former Bersih deputy chairman stressed that “not one flowerpot will be knocked down, not one brick will be thrown” if the police helped the election watchdog’s supporters march to Istana Negara to deliver a memorandum to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.
He pointed out that in “less primitive” Indonesia, demonstrations occurred almost on a weekly basis but NEVER got out of hand because the police there were on hand to assist the people exercise their right to assemble.
The Jakarta police chief, for instance, will appear on television to inform the public of a protest in the capital the next day and the route it will take, Mohamad said.
“‘I hope they (protestors) will come out early.’ This is the Jakarta police chief... And us? ‘Those who leave their homes we will arrest earlier’,” he said to laughter and jeers from the crowd. More here

The very act itself is Contentious
Charles Tilly in 2008 Contentious Performance wrote
Contentious performances are contentious because they concern claims that bore on someone else’s interests—often governments; they are performances because they follow some learned and historically grounded scripts, but like any performance there is room for innovation, mostly in small ways. Such performances, Tilly argues, clump into repertoires of claim-making routines that apply to the same claimant-object pairs: workers tend to strike against their bosses, citizens tend to march against their governments, and anti-globalists tend protest against meetings of transnational organizations. Repertoires vary from place to place, time to time, and pair to pair. But when people make claims they innovate within limits set by the repertoire already established for their place, time, and pair. Repertoires vary in terms of their rigidity from absence of any repertoire to rigid repertoires that repeat the same routines over and over as exactly as they can.
Street demonstrations are examples of contentious performances. Tilly positions the origin of the street demonstration in Great Britain between 1758 and 1834. It became the performance staged by social movements; it soon became a multi-purpose tool rather than an instrument oriented to some single goal or political inclination. By the 1830s British activists had learned to mount all three variants of the street demonstration that are still familiar today: the disciplined march through public streets, the organized occupation of a public space, and the combination of the two in a march to or from a public meeting. Roughly hundred year later street demonstrations made it into France to become the major means of advertising political identities and programs in France after World War I. In the last two decades of the 20th century the number of demonstrations in Paris alone increased from 200-400 per annum to 1.000-1.500 per annumLet us understand further the mechanics of these Contentious Performance..
