Stateless issue heads out of twilight zone
COMMENT Five years after the reverberating Hindraf protest of November 2007, the contest for the Indian vote at the 13th general election is headed for a decisive phase on a signal issue - the numbers of stateless residents and what’s to be done about their plight.
On Wednesday, a conjectural number of the stateless and their sympathisers will gather at the National Registration Department (NRD) to demonstrate their concerns and clamour for swift remedy.
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.
