ALERT: Change in plans

Please take note that we are NOT GATHERING at Dataran Merdeka to walk to the NPC. This was decided in discussions with the police and the organising committee on 29 May. Participants are kindly advised to head to the National Press Club on Jalan Tangsi (off Jalan Parlimen) for the dialogue which is scheduled to start at 10:30 with the Minister in Prime Minister’s Department, Datuk Mohd Zaid Ibrahim. Since refreshments have already been ordered for 9:30 am, feel free to come early to partake of them.

For those driving, there are only 25 parking spots around the NPC area. You may want to park across near the Royal Selangor Club, the St. Mary’s church or the underground parking at Dataran Merdeka, but please take note that the Dataran Merdeka road will be closed, so you will have to use the other entrance (U-turn at the roundabout below the Jalan Kinabalu flyover). Those who are commuting might consider taking the Putra-LRT to the Masjid Jamek station and it is a short walk to NPC, or the KTM Komuter to the Bank Negara stop.

See you at NPC on Sunday!

The revised program for the morning is as follows…

09:30 am Participants arrive, refreshments served
10:35 am Welcome speech by NPC Chairman, Mokhtar
10:45 am Speech by NUJ President, Norila Daud
10:55 am Speech on behalf of Walk Organisers, V Gayathry
11:00 am Keynote address by Minister in Prime Minister’s Department, Datuk Mohd Zaid Ibrahim
11:30 am Dialogue
12:00 noon Special announcements: Reading of May 3 Memorandum, Joint Resolution by organisers
12:30 pm Press Conference

    I am feel sad for you my guru.

    I believed this is your pet project and the banner of yours and your friends “BENAR” keep on beeping in my mind but i fails to notice your web until i read in Malaysiakini.

    Anyway,there will be another day tomorrow and tomorow will rise with the sun.
    Keep the finger cross and one day your dream BENAR will benar benar will happen.


    There is no need for sadness. Things will work out as they are meant to.

    I feel disappointed with the decision.

    The committee should take initiative to explain why the planned Walk for Press Freedom has been cancelled in this website.

    I knew that the reasons for the about-turn were security and traffic. Can you explain it with more information? Why the committee accepted the advise given by the police to cancel the march.

    Thank you very much.

    Walk the walk, not talk the walk!
