Valentine’s with Human Rights Forum, 14 Feb 2008

What’s an excellent way to spend Valentine’s Day?

At the Valentine’s with Human Rights Forum!

Organised by the Malaysian Law Students Alliance (MALSA), and supported by the Bar Council, this is the plug:

Greetings my fellow comrades of justice. MALSA will be collaborating with the Bar Council to bring you a forum on Human Rights at the Bar Council’s Auditorium on the 14th of February 2009, 2.00-5.30pm.

The theme of the Forum is Valentine’s with Human Rights. You may want to ask how spending Valentine’s Day coincides with Human Rights. Do present yourself at the Forum and find out yourself.

The Bar Council has graciously provided us with the venue and their team of top-notch and prominent Human Rights lawyers from its Human Rights Committee to speak at the Forum.

Make a date with MALSA and the Bar Council this Valentine’s Day.

Law students, non-law students, friends and families are welcome. Admission is free.

Let us discuss the significance and necessity of human rights in this world we live in.

The topics up for discussion are:

1) Human Rights Theory and Reality

2) Competing Interests – Individual rights vs. State rights: Which should Prevail?

3) Police Powers: Powers to stop, search and seize (with particular reference to the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984)

    Yvonne, I don't see how 3 1/2 hours of a Saturday afternoon prevents anyone from being with their loved ones. Human rights is also about the right to marry the person of your choice (here Muslims and non Muslims cannot marry. And the non Muslim needs to think carefully in converting- its a one way ticket). In public places, a couple cannot even hold hands without perhaps being charged.

    In some countries, young women are forced to marry against their will – is that not a violation of human rights?

    Gays, lesbians, transexuals wish to be with those they love too without discrimination. Human rights again.

    Yvonne, no one is forcing you to go. But there are some Malaysians who care enough to make this country a better place so that people like you can truly be with those you love and demonstrate love without breaking the law or be detained.

    Hopefully one day you will lose your bitterness and support those who love.

    Please give yourselves a break, guys.

    Why can't you all celebrate Valentine's Day with your love ones like normal people?

  4. LET THERE BE LIGHT TO KNOW OUR RIGHTS

    When we truly know our basic rights

    We live our lives less with frights

    Then there's no need to get into any wrong fight

    When everything is made known openly clear as light
