Fight ‘fake news’ with facts, not Acts!

On 14 March, a group of activists peacefully gathered outside Parliament to protest against the Emergency (Essential Powers) (No 2) Ordinance 2021 or simply known as the fake news ordinance. BFM speak to one of the protesters, Nalini Elumalai, the Malaysia programme office with Article 19, about what went down that day as well as why this new ordinance is problematic.
