Aliran launches ‘Save our Democracy’ online petition

Follow us on our Malay and English WhatsApp, Telegram, Instagram, Tiktok and Youtube channels.

Aliran has just launched an online petition calling on the people of Malaysia to stand up and speak out to protect our fledgling democracy.

The petition was launched after the authorities hauled up a string of civil society activists, opposition MPs and political activists, unionists, editors and journalists for investigations under various oppressive laws.

The petition contains the following demands:

  • drop all investigations and charges against critical voices in society
  • immediately repeal all repressive laws in the country
  • ensure Parliament provides effective checks and balances on the executive
  • recognise the role of civil society and free media in a democracy
  • widen rather than restrict our democratic space

The petition can be found here
