Walk for Peace and Freedom 2014 @ 16th October 2014 (Thursday)
by perakbar

Dear Members of the Bar and pupils in chambers
Re : Walk for Peace and Freedom 2014 @ 16th October 2014 (Thursday)

We refer to Circular No. 220/2014 dated 2nd October 2014, giving notice that the Malaysian Bar convened an Extraordinary General Meeting (“EGM”) on 19 Sept 2014 to condemn the use and continued use of the Sedition Act 1948.
In view of this, the Malaysian Bar at its EGM resoundingly resolved to hold a peaceful assembly to protest the recent spate of arrests, charges and investigations under the Sedition Act 1948.  The Malaysian Bar’s “Resolution against the Sedition Act, other laws and actions taken which stifle speech and expression, and matters in connection therewith” is accessible here on the Malaysian Bar website.
The Malaysian Bar’s Walk for Peace and Freedom 2014 will take place as follows:
        Date : 16th October 2014 (Thursday)
        Time : 10.30 am
        Gathering point : Padang Merbok Car Park (Tempat Letak Kereta Padang Merbok)
        Dress Code : Chamber attire
