Regressive Amendments to Citizenship Rights on the Horizon: Fight Back!

Recently, 18 civil society organisations have come together to launch a campaign urging the Home Ministry to hold off – in their words – “regressive” alterations to the nation’s citizenship laws that would perpetuate statelessness among children. However, the coalition also advocates for “progressive” revisions that would grant automatic Malaysian citizenship to children born overseas to Malaysian mothers. This campaign is called the #100. In this episode, we speak to the activists behind this campaign to discuss how Malaysians can fight back against these amendments.
