We the 528 Media Action Group，WAMI & CIJ, urge members of the public, political parties and NGOs to participate in a demonstration at RTM in response to the sacking of Chou Z Lam, who produced a documentary about the impact of Bakun Dam on indigenous people. Chou was sacked after he made public that his documentary was axed and that his superior in RTM has told him that “it would have negative impact on the (just-concluded) Sibu by-election”.
Please join us to make a stand that political interference into media industry, particularly in state broadcaster running on taxpayer money is unjustifiable!
