Zaid Ibrahim to address media freedom activists


Be there or be square!On Sunday, 1 June, journalists and concerned citizens are planning to taking a symbolic Walk at Dataran Merdeka to promote the cause of media freedom.

The organisers stress that it is not a public gathering but a walk.

They expect Zaid Ibrahim to deliver a keynote address. According to the organisers, Zaid has made two requests – that journalists turn up in large numbers and that this programme calls for ethics and accountability as much as it calls for freedom.

The event is being organised by Benar and the Centre for Independent Journalism. It should be interesting!

Let us hope that no one is water-cannoned with chemical laced water. It is becoming abundantly clear that it was the attitude of the Police prior to the Tsunami both in using water cannons; creating wilful traffic jams thinking that the Public are fools to fall for their duplicity; checking every Indian looking soul entering the city and sending so many poor unwitting souls back – all coincided well to make the citizens to take their wratth on the BN.
