After an absence of 37 years Malaysia’s original Speakers Corner will once again be the site of a historic and emotional gathering of many pioneer activists who kept it alive between 1966 and 1974.

Encouraged by the recent govt. initiative to revive this tradition of student activism and public oratorical skills, a small group of veteran activists got together, obtained the authorization of the VC, Tan Sri Dr Gouth Jasnon, and plan to hold a grand Reunion to celebrate the 45th anniversary of Speaker’s Corner that will be open to all past and present students of University of Malaya.

The event will be held at the original site (across from the Arts Faculty and near the Library) on 30th November 2011 at 10.00am.

This will be a social gathering of veteran and current activists from near and far away places including Puerto Rico, USA.

We are hoping the media will give this historic event the publicity that it deserves. It is with this in mind that I contact you. We will appreciate it very much if the Star will cover this event before, during and after this gathering.
