The passing of a legend, SM Mohamed Idris

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.

Al Fatihah.

Thanks for dropping by! Apart from the views expressed in Aliran's media statements and the NGO statements we have endorsed, the opinions in other pieces published here do not necessarily reflect Aliran's official position.

Our voluntary writers work hard to keep these articles free for all to read. But we do need funds to support our struggle for Justice, Freedom and Solidarity. To maintain our editorial independence, we do not carry any advertisements; nor do we accept funding from dubious sources. If everyone reading this was to make a donation, our fundraising target for the year would be achieved within a week. So please consider making a donation to Persatuan Aliran Kesedaran Negara, CIMB Bank account number 8004240948.

CAP has done a good job in educating the people but many do not aware. I worked in CAP few years.
