What is Reformasi?
Permatang Pauh Declaration
Being conscious of the Quranic injunction which urges striving towards betterment;

And inspired by the Asian traditions, which all encourage renewal for the individual and for society;

And acknowledging that Malaysia is in the grip of a terrible crisis and requires recourse to its inner strengths in order to rise again,

We the citizens of Malaysia of all cultural and religious backgrounds are determined to launch a movement for comprehensive reform:

A reform movement shining with a light radiating from aspiring and pure hearts; from the awareness that man is truly noble and free, with rights and responsibilities, that it is a sacrilege to abuse and denigrate any man or woman, to bind and restrict any man or woman without following the due process of just laws;

A reform movement to establish justice for all, the weak and strong, the rich and poor, to preserve the institutions and processes of law from the defilement of graft and abuse of power;

A reform movement to sanctify the power of the people through democratic means, for democracy is an imperative: man’s capacity for justice makes democracy possible, but man's inclination to injustice makes democracy necessary;

A reform movement that champions economic justice, one that advocates fairness in economic growth and distribution so that the rich do not get richer at the expense of the poor, for the world has enough for everyone, but too little to satisfy everyone’s greed;

A reform movement to eradicate graft and abuse of power, to strip the opulent and greedy clique of their power to manipulate the market;

A reform movement to reinforce a dynamic cultural identity, where faith in our noble cultural traditions is intact, but there is openness to all that is good in all traditions;

A reform movement to launch the Malaysian nation into the information age and the borderless world, encouraging wisdom, self-assurance and openness towards a global friendship based on the principles of truth and justice.

We launch this reform movement as a peaceful movement, in accordance with the spirit of the Constitution and in observance of the principles of the rule of law.

The hour has come. Unite for Reformasi.

Permatang Pauh
12 September 1998

This is a chapter from his book The Asian Renaissance published in December 1996. "It is dangerous to allow the law to be thought of as something quite distinct from justice in the moral sense, or else it would be possible to blatantly commit injustices by purportedly lawful means. Our courts of law must, at the same time, be courts of justice.  Their judgments must conform not only to strict legal requirements but also to the dictates of fairness and equity." (You can order copies of The Asian Renaissance by clicking on the animated pic above)

INTERNAL SECURITY ACT, 1960 (Part 1) (Part 2)

Read for yourself the infamous ISA.

by Sabri Zain

"In less than a months' time, we have seen the due process of law abused, the ISA used to silence dissent, the use of the government machinery towards individual political ends, gross control and manipulation of the media and an erosion in the rakyat's confidence in the independence and integrity of the judiciary.

Supporters of the Reformasi Movement must focus on these key issues."


"The International Movement for a Just World endorses the Permatang Pauh Declaration of 12  September 1998.

The principles of the Declaration are in accordance with our Movement's commitment to  justice, freedom and equality. The Declaration emphasises the equitable distribution of wealth, the eradication of corruption and the abuse of power and the strengthening of democratic  values."


But when a man who is a public figure is wronged before the whole world he must speak out more forcefully so that he is heard. For when a public figure is wronged, his office is also wronged. And if a court of law does not vindicate him, he may appeal against such a court. If there is no court to appeal to, he may not be silent: he must tell the world his story."

- Tun Salleh Abas, 1989
(Former Lord President and Chief Justice of Malaysia)
(sacked unceremoniously by the Prime Minister, Dr.M)



An excerpt from the booklet, "The Art of Islamic Government" based on a letter which was written by the Amir al Mu'minin, Ali, may Allah be pleased with him, from the collection of sayings entitled "Nahjul Balagha" (The Peak of  Eloquence).


Betty Lim: The support and concern of the public in the form of their participation, thoughts and wishes give my family and I a lot of encouragement. We really appreciate what they have done. I just hope and pray that truth and justice will finally prevail so that Guan Eng can return home to us soon.
