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?


Someone sent in a comment earlier about this initiative. You can check out the postings on this effort HERE and HERE.

I’ve reproduced below the translation of the announced initiative that was sent in earlier as part of the comment.



Venue : Main Concourse, Suria KLCC, KL
Date: 1 Jan 2008 (Public Holiday)
Time: 3pm

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.


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!!
