Tarik balik sekatan ke atas Malaysian Insider: Aliran melancarkan petisyen

Join us on Telegram and Instagram for the latest.

Aliran telah melancarkan satu petisyen atas talian bagi menuntut Suruhanjaya Komunikasi dan Multimedia Malaysia menarik balik sekatan ke atas laman berita The Malaysian Insider, Sarawak Report dan laman-laman berita yang lain.

Aliran today launched an online petition demanding the unblocking of The Malaysian Insider, Sarawak Report and other news portals.

Sign the petition to Communications and Multimedia Minister Salleh Said Keruak and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission:

The free flow of news and information is essential for a vibrant democracy to flourish in Malaysia. Recent attempts at curtailing are a violation of our basic right to freedom of information. These repressive moves stifle free and independent media, restrict the work of independent journalists and discourage whistleblowers.

We, the undersigned, therefore:

  • demand the unblocking of The Malaysian Insider, Sarawak Report, Asia Sentinel and Medium websites (read the Aliran statement here);
  • oppose the proposal to force news portals and blogs to register with the authorities;
  • demand the repeal of the Official Secrets Act rather than coming up with stiffer penalties;
  • oppose proposed amendments to the Communications and Multimedia Act to impose stiffer penalties.

Sign the petition

Thanks for dropping by! The views expressed in Aliran's media statements and the NGO statements we have endorsed reflect Aliran's official stand. Views and opinions expressed in other pieces published here do not necessarily reflect Aliran's official position.

Our voluntary writers work hard to keep these articles free for all to read. But we do need funds to support our struggle for Justice, Freedom and Solidarity. To maintain our editorial independence, we do not carry any advertisements; nor do we accept funding from dubious sources. If everyone reading this was to make a donation, our fundraising target for the year would be achieved within a week. So please consider making a donation to Persatuan Aliran Kesedaran Negara, CIMB Bank account number 8004240948.
