As early as 12 midnight, sleepy protesters started sleeping on the floors lined with cardboards and plastic being sold.

Children, mothers and fathers took advantage shades at a mall or the MRT station nearby, avoiding the drizzle.

Some members started dispersing as early as 12 midnight. Others chose to stay and wait for things to unfold.
