Got this from a commentator at Haris’s blog which looks like sound advice:

Dear Haris,

I have heard about a protocol used in other nation’s civil movement as a way of protecting crowds from sabotaged by infiltration during mass gatherings.

The protocol as used in the gathering goes something like this:

a) Before the gathering or at the beginning of gathering, the organizer inform every participants that if the organizer(s) shout “Sit on the ground — everyone, no exception”, then everyone must sit down.
b) During the gathering, if there is small disturbance (which could likely be infiltration from “enemy”) emerge to purposely create unrest, then the Organizer(s) can call out the exact words “Sit on the ground — everyone, no exception”. Then, pre-assigned workers shall quickly pull away anyone who refuse to sit down — and the views to seek out the ones standing up should be easy. This way the infiltration will fail to escalate the unrest.

I think the vigil and the Kelana Jaya getherings should be executed in a way preventing the infiltration from UMNO spies and instigators. We could do the prevention pretty easily with the above protocol.
