Speaking Truth to Power

Speaking truth to power involves personal, political and social complexities, and often speaking up about injustice means taking a risk for yourself. We speak to two activists who are speaking truth to power in their own ways and facing the risks that come with it -- Anna Har, the co-founder & executive director of the Freedom Film Network and the festival director of the Freedom Film Festival, and also Sharon Wah, the co-founder of the youth-led collective, MISI Solidariti, to find out more about the work they do, how they are supporting freedom of expression and the values contained in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) in Malaysia, in their own ways.
