Abolish ISA campaigners make their presence felt


Meet Kris Khaira, a human rights activist from Penang.

The five Pakatan-ruled state governments have thrown their backing behind the GMI’s call for the abolition of the ISA, the release of all ISA detainees and the closure of the Kamunting camp.

If anyone is interested in buying or helping us distribute any of those, you can contact me at [email protected].
