A recent article by S Arutchelvan from Parti Sosialis Malaysia calls for political movements here to better reflect the needs of every Malaysian.
To unpack this, BFM speaks with Maalini Ramalo, director of social protection of Development of Human Resources for Rural Areas; Gopal Kishnam, general secretary of the National Union of Transport Equipment and Allied Workers in Malaysia; and Aaron Denison from Demokrat Kebangsaan.
They talk about the concerns of the people who live and work outside of our urban centres and the needs of workers, especially in these difficult times. Finally, youth movements are viewed as the future – but how can they be more inclusive?
