A protester covering his face takes a part in a rally to celebrate the government's move to withdraw plans to ratify a U.N. anti-discrimination convention called ICERD, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Saturday, Dec. 8, 2018. The rally, organized by opposition Malay parties and nongovernment groups, was initially aimed at protesting a government plan to ratify a U.N. treaty against racial discrimination that critics allege will end Malay privileges under a decades-old affirmative action policy. The plan was eventually abandoned, but organizers decided to proceed with what they called a "thanksgiving" rally.
