Rumah Api Eviction and the Dole Action Group

Friday, 11 September 2015 - 5:30pm to 6:30pm

We have an interview with someone who was involved in the solidarity action at the Malaysian Consulate on the 10th of September, after the eviction of the Rumah Api Social Centre. This eviction happened on the 28th of August during a gig, with 161 people arrested, all due to allegations they were "planning to topple the Malayasian government". This happened the night before an unrelated protest against the Malyasian government, with it being part of a wider crackdown against opposition to the Malaysian government.


We also have an interview with Kieran from the Dole Action Group about changes to the Dole, and organising against these changes. Kieran tells us about what these changes mean for the unemployed, and the way they are campaigning against the use of the unvoluntary labour by charities that claim to be helping the poor.
