Top 5 At 5: Sabahan Students Remanded

Today's countdown covers:

5. The recent campaign from environmental activist group Just Stop Oil, where they left a part of Stonehenge covered in orange powder paint. We reached out to Shaq Koyok, an indigenous artist and environmental activist, for his thoughts on guerilla activism.

4. A baby goldfish was found in a stream at Bukit Kiara. The problem is, that it is not a native species there, so this can cause huge problems to the ecosystem of the fishes in that area. We speak to Dr Chen Pelf Nyok, the Co-Founder & Executive Director of the Turtle Conservation Society of Malaysia for her comment.

3. Bowler Sin Li Jane makes history at the US Women’s Open, claiming the title with a 226-214 win against Latvian Diana Zavjalova. Li Jane herself shares what her win means to her.

2. Malaysian mothers are asking for citizenship amendments to be applied retroactively. The current bill is not, meaning children born overseas to Malaysian mothers will not benefit from this change, and will remain non-citizens until their application is approved by the Ministry of Home Affairs.

1. Uproar over the detainment of students from an alternative school in Sabah, following their involvement in a protest over Sabah's water woes. We hear from our guest, Mohammad as well as revisit a conversation with Wan Shakila Adiela Wan Azmi from Borneo Komrad.
