Kita Mati Dalam Derhaka: Black Flags, “Dead Bodies” and Poetry

Organised by Sekretariat Solidariti Rakyat (SSR), a group of youths gathered at Dataran Merdeka on the 17th of July to protest the Perikatan Nasional government’s poor handling of the COVID-19 crisis. 14 black flags were raised and waved, five mock dead bodies wrapped in white cloth were laid on the ground and many even wore mock PPE suits, in a small protest that left a powerful impression. 

 

Following the protest, the police called up, investigated and issued RM 2000 compounds to 3 organisers. One of whom, Mohammad Alshatri (Mat), Programme Officer at Suaram, joins us to share what went down at the protest.
