Last Saturday saw over 1,000 young Malaysians taking to the streets to voice their frustration against the current Perikatan Nasional administration.
Protestors demanded that Prime Minister Mahiaddin Yasin resign, Parliament be allowed to reconvene properly and full moratoriums be granted for all Malaysians during these trying times.
Following the protest, the police announced they would be calling up and investigating both organisers and participants of the #Lawan protest. But is that fair?
Wathshlah Naidu, executive director of the Centre for Independent Journalism, joins BFM to share her observations and thoughts about the protest, as well as the investigations that are currently taking place.
