Flash Mob Against Spin-doctoring
by Haris Ibrahim
Kaki Ayam asked :
Why limit this to KLCC? Not everyone will feel like going to KL on a public holiday…
Why don’t we have it simultaneously at different locations?
keke…this should be fun…i shall do my part at The Curve…keke
Me thinks that’s a great idea.
If newspaper dumping takes place anywhere else, how about taking pictures and sending them in with a brief note to share with others?
I’ve reproduced below the translation of the announced initiative that was sent in earlier as part of the comment.
FLASH MOB AGAINST SPIN-DOCTORING
Venue : Main Concourse, Suria KLCC, KL
Date: 1 Jan 2008 (Public Holiday)
What to do:
1. Go to Suria KLCC Main Concourse on 1 Jan 2008 at 3pm.
2. Bring a copy of local newspaper; it can be The Star, NST, Metro, Malay Mail, Utusan Melayu, Berita Harian, Sin Chew Jit Poh, Nanyang Siang Pow, or any Tamil dailies.
3. At 3.30pm sharp, crumple the newspapers and throw them inside the rubbish bins.
4. Disperse IMMEDIATELY
NOTE: DO NOT LITTER. If the rubbish bins are full, stack your newspapers on top of the pile. If you can’t do that, find other rubbish bins at 1st Floor or other floors.
The ultimate goal is to dump the newspapers collectively as a sign of protest!!
