Penang is getting a Speakers’ Square – though it remains to be seen how it will actually work in practice.
The launch has been set for 9.00am on 3 May. The Square will be located at the Millennium Square at the Esplanade.
Hopefully, this example will be emulated in other states to promote freedom of speech.
One wish: That the public space in front of Dewan Sri Pinang (opposite the High Court complex), which was fenced up, will be re-opened.
