Welcome to Malaysia Beth Yahp.
Much to be admired for the organiser of the event in memory of May 13th 1969 tragedy…..really the victims did not deserve to die for a political agenda by just two or three UMNO dirty politicians.
Lets hope the truthful history is taught in schools. That’s most important right now.

Lets hope the truthful history is taught in schools.— Fat hopes as long as BN rules. Far better to upload upload the key reasons and real truth of 13-05-1969 up in cyberspace so that it can be read by all and sundry
