Raja Petra Kamarudin (RPK) public lecture in Sydney

VENUE: New Law School Lecture Theatre 101, University of Sydney

DATE: 11 March 2011

TIME: 5.00pm to 7.00pm

PIONEERING blog activist Raja Petra Kamarudin, who has accused the wife of Malaysia's Prime Minister of being present at the scene of a high-profile and horrific murder, will soon speak in Sydney.

The editor and chief writer of the Malaysia Today blog - from which he launched his infamous attack on PM Najib Razak and his wife, Rosmah Mansor - is now chairman of the Malaysian Civil Liberties Movement, a political group that is gearing for the next federal elections as the "third force" in Malaysian politics, to be reckoned with on both sides of the political divide.

MCLM was registered formally on October 30, 2010 in London, born of the Malaysian Civil Liberties Society, which for six years was refused official status in the country of its birth.

The stakes are high - a bit more than two years ago, Malaysia's Opposition coalition broke for the first time a two-thirds parliamentary majority that had allowed the government to re-write the Constitution at will.

What are MCLM's objectives?

Will MCLM work towards a united opposition front that draws together all political parties campaigning against a race-based, corrupt and crony-ridden government - or will it divide voter support for an established anti-government alliance that made historic electoral gains in 2008?

What are the fundamental differences between RPK and Anwar Ibrahim, the former deputy prime minister who is now a leading voice in the opposition alliance?

Will they overcome these differences for the greater objective of wresting power from BN?

RPK says he has the answers to these and other vexing questions about his latest foray into Malaysian politics.

Meet Malaysia's mercurial blog activist and political agitator at University of Sydney on March 11, 2011.

Attendance is free and on a first come, first served basis.
