GODS OF SARAWAK: Who will answer our prayers? @j_rubis asks why Swakians are so loyal to their gods
Over the months of working with SADIA, coupled with my own journey with LoyarBurok, I’ve realized that the greatest asset for change is personal knowledge: knowledge of what our rights are as a Malaysian citizen, knowledge of the electoral process, and knowledge of the role of our elected representatives. With knowledge comes taking absolute responsibility for our own life, not just viewing ourselves as victims of an unjust political process. In light of the upcoming state elections, this means going beyond vote registration and into voter education. Of course, with a few weeks left before polling, Sarawak has probably missed the boat on this.
