About This Book

This is the first published account of the Malaysian civil rights movement (now Suaram) which emerged spontaneously in the 1980s. It is by Dr Kua Kia Soong, educationalist and sociologist, former MP and political detainee from 1987-1980. Civil rights issues explored include: minority rights under the National Culture Policy; the future and usage of Melaka's Bukit Cina; the 1987 crackdown on activists; plantation workers' rights in East and West Malaysia; the dumping of radioactive waste in Perak; and the impact of logging on indigenous people in Sarawak. Relevant statements and memoranda are presented in the appendix. With black and white photographs.
