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!
