BlocksToBlock Gua Musang Exhibition

To raise awareness and funds for the oppressed Orang Asli Temiar of Gua Musang, there will be a building of a symbolic ‘blockade’ at the Ground Floor of Publika. A piece made of over a hundred unique artworks drawn or printed on blocks.

HELP SAVE A FOREST, AND A PEOPLE.
BE PART OF THE BLOCKADE

You can be part of the fight for Orang Asli land rights just by buying a block. Proceeds go towards food or vital supplies for displaced Orang Temiar and rehabilitation of destroyed homes.

(Note: all purchases count as donations, meaning they are tax-deductible!)

JOIN THEM IN A STATEMENT OF SOLIDARITY

#BlocksToBlock Gua Musang’ runs 23 – 29 April 2018 at the Publika Concourse (G2). Please help us spread the word! We — and the besieged Orang Temiar — thank you.

遗忘,向来是统治者用来驯化人民、操纵记忆、弱化反抗运动的手段。
记忆,则是无权势者守护被压迫者,拒绝在思想上向统治者弃械投诚的一场斗争。

对社会运动而言,最困难的莫过于不断唤起民众对于不公不义事件的关注,倡议改革制度以避免执法机关再次重蹈覆辙侵犯人权。职是之故,今年由赵明福民主基金会主办,甘榜东姑州议员刘永山和武吉加星州议员拉吉夫协办的赵明福逝世七周年纪念活动,主题为“勿忘明福,维护人权”,我们希望通过明福的个案,唤醒社会对生命权与扣留所安全的关注。

记忆即是反抗:人权艺术展是赵明福逝世七周年纪念活动的轴心项目,我们欣慰邀得25位艺术爱好者参与这个别具意义的活动,以不同方式呈现赵明福与扣留所死亡事件,呼唤民众以铭记赵明福与其它扣留所命案的方式,作为反抗不公不义侵犯人权的行为。
