Movements Beyond Twitter Bubble: Lessons For the Progressives

UMNO’s Dato Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob has been appointed the 9th Prime Minister of Malaysia after 114/220 MPs pledged their support to him. The status quo remains. 

One can’t help but wonder, what all the drama and anxiety that many Malaysians have been feeling over the past couple of weeks especially, was for? What did the protests accomplish?

But more than that, there’s also the question of what next? If the progressives intend to take the power from the elite, for the people, what do we need to think about differently? 

Recently, S. Arutchelvan, the Deputy Chairperson of Parti Sosialis Malaysia, wrote a piece on Malaysiakini BM titled “Hakikatnya Gerakan Rakyat Juga Gagal.” It’s a pertinent and powerful piece that reflects on the shortcomings of the left-leaning “progressives,” including his own party and discusses what we need to do next, as we head towards GE-15 and future elections. 

Arul joins us on the show to share his thoughts.
