PSM supports Hindraf Blueprint 

Dear Waytha,


Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) having studied the Blueprint put out by Hindraf would like to express our support in principle to the below 6 issues raised by Hindraf.

1. Hundreds of thousands of internally displaced estate workers.
2. Tens of thousands of Indians who remain Stateless despite having resided in Malaysia all their lifes.
3. The denial of adequate and equal educational opportunities
4. Unequal employment and business opportunities
5. The impunity of the Royal Malaysian Police.
6. The standards of Human Rights practices

PSM is against any policies which are discriminative based on race. We call for affirmative actions to be taken irrespective of race and religion to uplift the poor and marginalised in the country. We also endorse Hindraf’s call for a Ministry of Minority Affairs as we agree with Hindraf that institutional racism exists in our society and that it needs to be identified and addressed in a conscious and concerted fashion. Institutionalised racism will not disappear just because there is a change in government.

PSM had also previously supported the Social Inclusion Acts promoted by SABM (Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia)

Thank You
