“Works of Freedom” – 60th anniversary of UDHR

I am doing a little bit of advertisement today for “FAN Malaysia: Photography Contest and ‘Works of Freedom’ Exhibition “.

In conjunction with the 60th anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and the World Human Rights Day falls on December 10th, the Friedrich Naumann Foundation Alumni Network (FAN) Malaysia is celebrating the day with an upcoming exhibition and a photography contest with the theme of ‘Freedom’. FAN Malaysia realizes the needs to advocate public awareness on the meanings of Freedom through photo exhibition and to enlist the public support the cause of Freedom. It also hopes that the contest and the exhibition will help to raise public awareness on the meaning of freedom in a broader context.

For details of the program and how to enter, please go to the Friedrich Naumann Foundation Website (click here ).

    I am sick to read the top news today. We should value whatever amount of ‘freedom’ we have now as it maybe depleted over time.

    A really sad day. Anything can happens in Malaysia.

    yes, i have the same feeling. BUt we cannot comment on it as it will be regarded as subjudice or contempt of court. But we all know how all of us feel and how Malaysian public feel without having to say it out.

    (To qoute wikipedia:
    “In law, sub judice, Latin for “under judgment,” means that a particular case or matter is currently under trial or being considered by a judge or court. The term may be used synonymously with “the present case” or “the case at bar” by some lawyers.

    In England and Wales, New Zealand, Australia, India and Canada it is generally considered inappropriate to comment publicly on cases sub judice, which can be an offence in itself, leading to contempt of court proceedings. This is particularly true in criminal cases, where publicly discussing cases sub judice may constitute interference with due process” .. wiki)

    That is why a Judicial commission is important.

    I hope before PM goes, he can really put it in place. At least he would have done one single good thing for Malaysia that way.

    All things should be done on ‘conscience’.

    This is the least that all should have.
