Who is Bon? Edmund Bon. Reproducing inspire.fm’s (via Chew Hoong Ling) interview with him on his life, love and passion here.
The Nut Graph introduces Edmund as a reformasi-generation lawyer-turned-human-rights-activist. The young handsome guy is a real mover and championed many human rights activities. Under his wings are UndiMsia!, a voters’ education movement, the MyConstitution campaign to encourage Malaysians to understand up the constitution and the LoyarBurok blawg.
At the PusatRakyat LoyarBurok, young people gather weekly to participate in activities to help nation building. One signature activity is the #IdolaDemokrasi where young people gather, identify a possible problem and brainstorm for possible solutions.
His years of activism also landed him in trouble. He was charged for participating in an illegal assembly, he claimed trial and was released on bail. However, his determination and spirit were not dampened by that incident. Genuinely a “Walk the Talk” man, he inspires many young people to also walk along with him.
