Final Call to Register!

Will you exercise your right as a Malaysian citizen when the time comes? More importantly, have you registered as a voter? If you haven’t – do it NOW!

Malaysians must stand united to oust BN! That opportunity is coming soon. Don’t waste it!

I came across this video of a fifteen-year-old British student giving a rousing call-to-arms on social justice. His speech relates to school students’ involvement in the fee hike demos and how they were there because they believed in something. As he so eloquently put it: “They can't stop us demonstrating, they can't stop us fighting back, and how ever much they try to imprison us in the streets of London, those are our streets. We will always be there to demonstrate, we will always be there to fight...”.

We all can learn something from this speech. When there is injustice, there will be a fight back. As the speaker stressed: “We are no longer that generation that doesn't care, we are no longer that generation to sit back and take whatever they give us. We are now the generation at the heart of the fight back”. Great speech from someone so young.
