More than 10,000 yellow-shirt protesters rallied in Kuala Lumpur on Saturday, seeking Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak's resignation over a financial scandal.
They were undeterred by a police ban and the arrest of more than a dozen activists.
Najib, who is attending an Asia-Pacific summit in Lima, Peru, has kept an iron grip since corruption allegations emerged two years ago involving the indebted 1MDB state fund that he founded.
1MDB is at the centre of investigations in the US and several other countries.
