Despite being confronted by baton-wielding riot police and sprayed by water cannon, courageous campaigners from the Abolish ISA Movement (GMI) holding a candlelight vigil in solidarity with the detained Hindraf Five on 5 January 2007 succeeded in getting their message across: they want an end to this draconian law.

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.
