CONGRATULATIONS to all our movers for the recent nominations we received from MyHarapan and SUARAM. While the Malaysian Centre for Constitutionalism and Human Rights (MCCHR) Secretariat had been the first one to be notified of this, the nomination was in fact for UndiMsia! and this means it goes out to all the movers.
For a 1-year + movement, this was totally unexpected of course. But as we do our quarterly reports, it dawned on us the amount of work and activities that had happened in the past year.
To say that it’s the MCCHR Secretariat that did it all is rubbish. As movers, you have persistently volunteered in the various projects: #LaporanRakyat, #IdolaDemokrasi, #MyMP, KAP baseline survey, Resource Centre, Runcit, production of videos and infographics, etc. It’s the teamwork that makes UndiMsia! recognisable to the others. We wish to also note our appreciation to the other organisations and individuals who support the movement through other means.
Hope that these nominations have some sort of a meaning to you – knowing that what you do has an impact on others and that it has opened many doors for other things to come.
WE THANK YOU.
Although we didn’t win either award, it is a great encouragement for us to take bigger and stronger strides. We know there are always rooms for improvement and we hope we’ll be able to work them out together.
Let’s continue to Move!
From the Secretariat of the Malaysian Centre for Constitutionalism and Human Rights (MCCHR)
The Pusat Rakyat LoyarBurok (PRLB) is a community centre run by the Malaysian Centre for Constitutionalism and Human Rights (MCCHR). PRLB is open to Homo Sapiens (or higher i.e. Homo Superior like the X-Men), all species of simian and civil society organisations who wish to use the space for meetings, activities or events that support, promote or enhance the mission and spirit of MCCHR. MCCHR’s mission is to promote and protect human rights in Malaysia in accordance with established international rights principles, treaties and law by maximising the use of all appropriate tools through integrated and community-based approach. We also like to party and do other fun stuff. Serious. PRLB’s main purpose is to provide a conducive and safe space for youth (don’t worry, old flers are also welcome-lah) to engage constructively, discuss and educate themselves (and others) about civil, political, economic, social and cultural issues. It also seeks to provide a platform for other beneficial rakyat-orientated activities such as parties and other fun stuff. I know we sound stuffy here, but we are serious about the fun stuff.
