Invitation to Public Forum BERANI BERSUARA:“Malaysian Ethnic Identity”

2010.04.18

Dear NGO colleagues,

Invitation to Public Forum BERANI BERSUARA:“Malaysian Ethnic Identity”

For many years, ethnic politics have dominated and plagued Malaysian society. Ethnic identity seems to dominate Malaysian identity and the state has used wide-ranging preferential policies to manage ethnic problems. After Malaysia’s independence, conflict has taken root among people who share the same terrain but differ in ethnicity, race, religion and even language.

What can explain the increasing salience and intensity of ethnic politics in Malaysia?

All Women’s Action Society (AWAM) together with the Civil Rights Committee of the KL Selangor Chinese Assembly (CRC-KLSCAH) are embarking on a series of Talk Shows / Public Forums entitled “BERANI BERSUARA”. This is part of our initiative to promote a democratic space for Malaysians to discuss emerging issues pertaining to the socio-political development in Malaysia.

We hope the first series “BERANI BERSUARA” with the topic “Malaysian Ethnic Identity” will open up spaces for us to discuss our identity and the barriers we face today.

The details of the forum:
Date: 21 April 2010 (Wednesday)  8pm
Venue: Upstairs Auditorium of  KLSCAH
Speakers:
1. Dato’ Ambiga Sreenevasan
(Practising lawyer and Former President of Bar Council Malaysia)
2. Josh Hong (Human Rights Activist and Columnist)
3. Jerald Joseph (Human Rights Activist)
4. Dina Zaman (Writer)
Moderator: Haslina Yaacob (President of AWAM)
Mediating Language:English

For further enquiries, please contact Mr. Chia , the assistant of KLSCAH at
03-2274 6645.

Yours Truly,
Liau Kok Fah
Chairman of Civil Rights Committee of KLSCAH

Kepada saudara-saudari yang berkesempatan, silalah mengikuti forum berkenaan. Kerana yang bakal memberi buah fikiran kali ini bukanlah calang-calang orang. Antara mereka telah meraih reputasi hingga ke peringkat nasional dan antarabangsa. Dua minggu lepas, ditempat yang sama, saya bersama 3 panel juga diberi ruang dan peluang dalam satu Forum bertajuk ‘Hak kehidupan dan kerakyatan Bumiputera Sarawak”. Saya mengambil peluang tersebut untuk merayu bantuan daripada masyarakat Tanah Semenanjung untuk sama-sama membantu penduduk Bumi Kenyalang khasnya penduduk Bakun/Belaga untuk menentang kezaliman kerajaan Barisan Nasional.

Saya berharap agar lebih ramai muda-mudi anak sarawak yang berani akan tampil bersuara menentang kekejaman kerajaan BN. Hanya dengan keberanian dan ilmu sahaja kita akan berjaya memperolehi semula tanah kita yang telah tergadai di bawah pemerintahan BN. Janganlah kita berasa selesa dengan pendapatan sederhana yang kita miliki sekarang. Kerana tanpa tanah, apakah bukti yang kita memiliki negeri dan negara ini. Berjuanglah demi generasi masa depan.- Belagakini.
