Several protests have been held under the #Lawan movement over the past few weeks, a lead up to a larger protest planned for tomorrow. An in just the last week, 39 activists have been called in for questioning. We begin our discussion by talking about the importance of protests and the freedom to speak up. Next, we looked into reports of the 39 activists investigated. Finally, we explored how protests have affected change in Southeast Asia.
