Aliran notes the passing of SM Mohamed Idris at the age of 93 with sadness.
He was founding
president of Consumers Association of Penang, Sahabat Alam Malaysia
and Third World Network.
His efforts through
CAP, SAM and TWN influenced thousands of Malaysians over the years.
An activist till the
end, he was scheduled to address the press on Monday over the “three
islands” land reclamation in Penang.
His voice provided a
counterweight to the rapacious greed and profiteering of this era.
He was truly a
legend in his time over consumer, environmental and social issues. He
will be sorely missed.
Thank you, Mr Idris,
for all that you have done.
