Here’s a refreshing antidote to the racial and religious controversies of late: the ‘Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia’ roadshow reached Ipoh on Saturday.

Over a hundred Perakians turned up to listen to speakers such as Azmi Sharom and Haris Ibrahim who peppered their talks with humour.
The speakers successfully drove home the message that Malaysians can no longer afford to turn a blind eye to what is going on around them.

Dear Gerakan K,
I believe you are confused about what Bangsa Malaysia ia all about. If you had missed the Ipoh forum, you may want to visit this site to appreciate more before you conclude. http://youtube.com/sabmchannel
Gerakan K, Dude… it depends on your definition of “Bangsa”. Race? Heritage? Ethnicity? Nationality? It’s too often misused and politicised, no?? SABM is trying to diffuse this. No one can ever deny the multi-ethnicity of Malaysia. Malay, Chinese, Indian, Punjabi, Iban, Kadazan, Bidayu, Siamese…. there are OVER 100+ (forgive me for not listing all) of us around, not to mention “mixed” from cross-marriages. But what SABM is trying to do is say “we are all Malaysians, first!” Nationality, identity… in the name of unity… and agaisnt discrimination in terms of so-called race, class, creed etc… We are all born equal… Read more »
Another attempt to erase my identity. There is no such thing as Bangsa Malaysia. There are Bangsa Melayu, Cina, India, etc. Stop this nonsense now…
keep tabs on http://sayaanakbangsamalaysia.net/ for more info on the next roadshows.
You have to hand it to Haris Ibrahim, Azmi Sharon, Art Harun for turning this into something very substantial. These are the people that will change this nation..
No problems on IE with Vista. But only 4 photos in slide show that I can see
Yes, there are only four photos up there.
I don’t use IE. I dunno.
Chrome does it okay, tho.
Is anyone having any problem viewing the slideshow above using the Microsoft Internet Explorer browser?
When is the road show in KL or Selangor?
Would love to drop by and be part of SABM
