Citizenship made in heaven?

comments         Published     Updated

Is citizenship established for heaven or only on earth? This is an important question. Citizenship defines both our dignity and sense of destiny, it would seem.

Let us consider WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, as a case in point. He is a citizen of Australia, but appears to have done much of his research and work outside his home country. He now seeks asylum in Ecuador and is waiting out the process at its embassy in London.

UK police have said he will be arrested and deported to Sweden to answer alleged sexual-offence charges and then perhaps be sent on to the US for “unstated crimes” against the US, under secret EU-US arrangements.

Keep Malaysiakini independent!

Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.

Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.

Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.

Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
