Lulu's Not Buying The Papers on Tuesday

Read the full media statement on ‘Boycott the Newspapers’ initiative by The People’s Parliament

Currently, MSM spindoctoring is going into overdrive on the authorities’ perennial tried-and-tested track of communalism, misrepresentation and fear-mongering. To counter their deliberate inaccuracy, we shall put together a brief summary of ‘alternative news’ for our ‘Balik Kampung Bawa Berita Benar’. It is an experimental initiative to be picked up at The People’s Parliament shortly.
Closing statement
The People’s Parliament holds that MSM are now hardly voices of the people but rather mouthpieces of the government. If Malaysia is to see any change at all, the rakyat must know the truth and this truth is unfortunately not forthcoming from MSM.
We hold that a boycott of local newspapers is one way we can check the rot in our country and a means for civil society to take constructive action. Malaysia deserves a free press.

have not followed the discussion that lead to this innitiative. Me too wonder why Tuesday only?

Maybe this a plan to slowly build up ppls confident that they can live without the MSM bullshit.

Start with 1/7, increase dosage and potency to 2/7 and so on. :)
