“That’s not MY story”: Addressing issues of fantastical representations of the GE14 elections in the film, Rise: Ini Kalilah

14 September 2018 • By Benjamin Loh

My GE14 story involved volunteering as a PACA to safeguard the electoral process. Others I have talked to would have their own stories to tell; some just talked about the long queues at polling centres, others lamented that it inconvenienced their plans to watch a concert later that night, and there were of course a few that did not bother to even register.

3 September 2018 • By Rien Sd

Ramai ahli ilmu kita yang ketika ini sedang memendam kegusaran dan kebimbangan atas kemendapan wacana ilmu di Malaysia. Seakan-akan sudah tiada ketertarikan masyarakat atas ilmu dan peranan-peranannya. Wacana ilmu tidak lagi menjadi projek utama membangun bangsa.

IMHO: The Politically Persistent

11 January 2018 • By IMAN Research

The air is thick with cynicism when it comes to politics these days, as disillusionment and distrust in politicians grows. Yet there remains a section of the population that continues to actively participate in politics, who are unwavering in their support and hope in the political process. IMHO meets with the attendees of the Himpunan Menentang Kleptokrasi held last October at PJ's Padang Timur, to understand the reasons behind their continued interest in politics, bucking the trend today.

IMHO is The Affair Weekly's video series that asks the people who matter what their thoughts are on the pressing issues of the day. For the latest updates, follow The Affair Weekly on your preferred social networks.
