Grassroots Leading Political Change

The grassroots-led white flag movement is creating waves over social media, with communities offering help in kind to people in distress during the pandemic. However the politicization of the movement by figures on both sides of the divide has sparked public backlash. We discuss the impact of social media movements and efforts to lead political change from the ground up with strategic communications consultant and commentator Nathaniel Tan. He also heads Projek Wawasan Rakyat (POWR) and is part of Projek #BangsaMalaysia.
