Exactly 18 days after the first break-in at the Aliran office, the thieves struck again for the second time!

Aliran is revamping its website and today, we are launching a regular column “Thinking Allowed online,” featuring almost daily commentaries on current issues.
We look at the story behind the news and analyse the issues behind the headlines from a perspective of justice, human rights, multi-ethnic politics and universal spiritual values – all that Aliran stands for.
This special issue features our recent 32nd anniversary fund (and fun!)-raising dinner in Penang attended by close to 700 people.
