ABC Radio Australia: Malaysian youth becoming more politically aware

Lawyer Edmund Bon is a well-known human rights activist and a champion of democracy in Malaysia. Reproducing podcast (via ABC Radio Australia) post on Edmund Bon‘s discussion with presenter, Liam Cochrane on 16 April 2012 here.

He is a key player in UndiMsia! – a non-partisan lawyer-run movement to educate all Malaysians on national issues of concern – and is also a member of the Malaysian Centre for Constitutionalism and Human Rights.

Mr Bon was in Melbourne last week to conduct a fun workshop for Malaysian youth, Idola Demokrasi.

Roughly translating to Democracy Idol, it’s designed to challenge and engage Malaysian youth to act and take tangible action on issues back home.

Presenter: Liam Cochrane

Speaker: Edmund Bon, from UndiMsia! and the Malaysian Centre for Constitutionalism and Human Rights
