Top 5 At 5: BDS Malaysia Speaks Out!

Today's top 5 stories are:

1. Our mini Popek Popek Parlimen, where we bring you updates from parliament, including: improving internet services nationwide, the distribution of essential goods and subsidies, and the proposal of enlisting students and youths who are not enrolled in university in PLKN.

2. ISIS-K launched a terrorist attack near Moscow, which has led to 137 casualties.

3. Vivekananda Ashram is in jeopardy after losing its heritage status in the draft KLLP 2040, as interested parties may want to redevelop the land.

4. A math teacher is being investigated by the police for sexually assaulting a secondary school student.

5. And our top story! McDonald's Malaysia has withdrawn their defamation suit against BDS Malaysia, after "positive outcomes" from their mediation talks.

For these stories, we heard from Julia Roknifard from the School of Politics, History and International Relations of University of Nottingham Malaysia, chairman of Save Kuala Lumpur Datuk M. Ali, and lawyer and co-chairperson of CRIB Foundation Ajeet Kaur.
