Many of us, have directly or indirectly, over many years – some of us for more than half a century – and especially during the 2008, 2013 and 2018 general elections, campaigned, agitated and demonstrated for a better Malaysia:
- Where social justice prevails;
- Where there are equal access to opportunities for all irrespective of social, economic, cultural, religious and ethnic background; and
- Where politicians are accountable to the people.
The first big step
In the 2018 GE, Malaysians have succeeded in taking the first big step towards a better Malaysia. However, this is only the beginning – there will be many battles to be fought in striving for a better Malaysia. Our reforming and progressive leaders will require on-going support from all of us. We must continue to expose those who corrupt, divide and betray our country, and those in power who abuse the future of Malaysia with poor quality education for ordinary Malaysians while sending their off springs abroad for better education.
We must find a way to keep Malaysians in the UK connected to provide on-going support for our just cause. There is no organisation that is not affiliated to political parties in Malaysia in the UK that provides common platform for Malaysians and friends of Malaysia in the UK.
I propose to promote such a platform and it will be named Global Malaysians UK.
Global Malaysians UK will not be affiliated to any political party in Malaysia or in the UK.
The prime objectives of ‘Global Malaysians UK’ are to:
- Provide a common platform for Malaysians in UK to connect with each other.
- Organise discussions through meetings (and any media) on issues directly or indirectly relating to and affecting Malaysia where appropriate.
- Organise social events for Malaysians to get together where appropriate.
- Co-operate with any organisation to achieve the above.
