Invitation to the MCLM forums on Rakyat Reform Agenda (RARA)

The Malaysian Civil Liberties Movement will be officially launching a series of forums nationwide on the ‘Rakyat Reform Agenda’ beginning from Monday 19th September 2011 in Kuala Lumpur at the Kuala Lumpur Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall (KLSCAH) from 7pm – 11pm.

It is MCLM’s fervent hope that in order for Malaysia to be the great inclusive nation envisioned by our founding fathers, we must return to basic principles.

How will we achieve this? The answer – Through the Rakyat Reform Agenda (RARA), which is a four-point plan to:

1. Honour the agreements made in 1963 between the Federation of Malaya and Sabah and Sarawak prior to the formation of the Federation of Malaysia

2. Restore the national institutions to the Rakyat – the judiciary, Election Commission, police force, Attorney-General, etc.

3. Restore the liberties guaranteed to the Rakyat under the Federal Constitution by repealing the ISA, OSA, PPPA, UUCA and Sedition Act

4. Adopt the Social Inclusion Agenda, designed to raise the living standards of all marginalised persons in Malaysia.

Apart from Kuala Lumpur, the MCLM RARA forums will also be held in Kota Kinabalu (27th Sep), Sandakan (29th Sep), Kuching (1st Oct), Penang (24th Oct), Ipoh (25th Oct) culminating in Johor Baru (27th Oct). Details on the time and exact venues at these locations will be provided in due course.

We would appreciate if you can send your journalist to cover the KL event.
