Dare to be free!

A civil society initiative to campaign for a free and fair media was launched on 3rd May 2008. The initiative has been named `BENAR' (truth) and it's main thrust is to challenge journalists in the mainstream media to be daring enough to report events in an unbiased manner in spite of editorial demands.

As a first step, the BENAR group is promoting an online petition for the Malaysia Freedom of Information Act.

More details on the initiative can be found at this link.
