Bridge builders stand down book burners
COMMENT It was a weekend fraught with anxiety over what some pyromaniacs had threatened to do.
In the event, it turned out to be an occasion when meaningful symbolism triumphed as incendiary intent fizzled out - and the rest of the country breathed a little easier.

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 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.
