Internet Blackout Day - 14 Aug 2012

I am in support of Internet Blackout Day, a campaign initiated by Centre for Independent Journalism (CIJ), seeking for Freedom of online expression in my country!  The recently passed new Evidence Amendment  (No.2) Act will deem an internet user who posted comments deemed as slanderous as G-U-I-L-T-Y until proven otherwise.  This is contrary to the principle of law where one is innocent until proven guilty.  Therefore, we are seeking Malaysian government to repeal this amendment immediately.

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
