On June 1 2008 (this Sunday) at 9.00am the Malaysian Media will assemble under the National Flag at Dataran Merdeka and after a short ceremony, they will take a similarly short stroll to the National Press Club for a talk by Datuk Zaid Ibrahim.
I heard that the Mainstream Media's bigwigs will take this significant stroll too. That would be the most welcome gesture in support of their associates.
The program for the morning is as follows…
|9 – 9:45am||Walkers arrive individually at the National Flag at Dataran Merdeka, show their respect, and then proceed immediately to the National Press Club. Please DO NOT gather anywhere at the Dataran. If there are any blockades, simply avoid those and find another route to the NPC. No confrontation and no heroics please.|
|10:00 am||Welcoming address by the organisers|
|10:15 am||Keynote address by Datuk Zaid Ibrahim|
|10:45am||Sharing by participants followed by Q&A|
|11:30am||Reading of the 1st June Statement|
|11:40am||Re-reading of the 3rd May Memorandum|
|11:50am||Launch of the signature campaign endorsing the 3rd May Memorandum|
|12:00 noon||Participants take the Pledge Resolution on Media Freedom|

their hearts on their sleeves.
