Come join the artists/activists in exploring complex issues at Ops Bilang*. Organised by the Centre for Independent Journalism (CIJ). In conjunction with the launch of CIJ’s e-forum, Let’s Talk About…

Let’s Talk About… kicks off with a series of articles on citizenhip, federalism, indigenous rights, culture, civil law and syariah law, religious freedom, gender/sexuality rights, death penalty, rape, workers’ rights, student rights, and freedom of expression.

While some of these topics are such hot-button items that certain political and pressure groups are warning otehrs not to raise them – purpotedly in the interest of maintaining harmony between all communities – CIJ believes that left unaired and undefused, opinions, especially dissent, are time bombs that can be more damaging in the long term.
