What now, after Bersih 4.0? Mahathir? Or we, the RAKYAT?

September 5, 2015


I was going to write and update you on the status of The Rakyat Times, but I will defer that to touch on something that I feel is more pressing. Let me take that up in my next post. Over the 2 days at the rally over the last weekend, I was again and again asked […]

Lets clean up KL this weekend. Putrajaya next!

On 14th April, 2007, the day this blog was launched, I wrote : “This blog, then, is about civil society reclaiming its power to determine who are the law-makers in Parliament today who are worthy of the trust reposed in them by the people and if, sadly, we discover there are none presently, to make an […]
