With International Poverty Reduction Day on 17 October, Gabungan Marhaen, in collaboration with several other civil society organisations, is organising a virtual event called Himpunan Marhaen.

The event will take place on 12 – 17 October and will highlight several issues faced by the working class and the lower-income group. One of the organisers, S Arutchelvan, from Gabungan Marhaen and the Socialist Party of Malaysia (PSM), joins BFM to share what the event is all about.
