The Centre for Independent Journalism (CIJ) Malaysia would like to invite members of the public to the launch of its annual report, “Freedom of expression in Malaysia in 2011”, at Kuala Lumpur & Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall, on 16 May 2012 (Wed).
Besides the highlights of the 2011 FoE report, there will be an additional presentation on media coverage of Bersih 3.0 compared with Bersih 2.0. It includes analyses of how different media reported on, among others:
the numbers of those who turned up; and
the numbers of those injured and which side - protesters or police - is allegedly responsible.
We invite everyone to come in the T-shirt that expresses their most pressing cause. This is another opportunity for all to state whatever they espouse.
We have an exciting, interactive launch in store. Major protest groups of 2011 will come together to share their core messages as one giant human microphone!
