Stunning images from the Penang anti-reclamation protest

These brilliant photographs by Cole Yap (Insta @cole.yap) show the creativity at the latest #PenangTolakTambak rally protesting against massive land reclamation in the state.

On a glorious 4 November morning, artists, drummers, dancers, activists and university students – along with fishermen on 26 boats from mainland Penang – joined hands in solidarity with fishermen protesting at the Esplanade.

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.
