Have you sign this memorandum for a truthful press? I am the 100th signatory!
I received this from blogger Lucia Lai, one of the hard-working representative of BENAR, free media advocacy group. BENAR says:
Concerned Malaysians are working hard to collect as many signatures as possible for the 2008 Memorandum on Media Freedom – sponsored by Benar for Free and Fair Media (Benar), Centre for Independent Journalism (CIJ), National Alliance of Bloggers (All-Blogs) and Writers Alliance for Media Independence (WAMI).
The Memorandum, together with the signatures collected until 30 August, 2008 shall be presented to the national leaders on August 31, 2008 and to state leaders on September 16, 2008 to demand for reforms in media laws. This project will be weaker without your support. We hope you will place this image link on your blog to help promote the cause.
There can be no free nation without free media. Let us come together to demand media freedom as the birthday present for our beloved nation.
For non bloggers, you are encourage to support us by posting about the memorandum in forums or newsgroup.
Thank you very much for your support and attention.
In our love of the nation and freedom,
All-Blogs, Benar, CIJ and WAMI
