Official Statement by The Chairman of UKEC Regarding The Student Protests In Malaysia

UKEC regrets the scuffle that happened during the recent student protests against the Universities and University Colleges Act (UUCA) 1971. We urge an immediate and thorough investigation on whether or not the police did use excessive force to stifle the student protesters.

In line with UKEC’s purpose of providing a platform for the discourse of Malaysian students in the United Kingdom, UKEC welcomes the Government’s move to amend the UUCA. It has long been UKEC’s belief that student empowerment is vital towards progressing as a nation.

On the 28th of January 2012, UKEC will be holding its Ordinary General Meeting (OGM) in London. During the OGM, UKEC hopes to discuss this issue further with all our members. These will include leaders of Malaysian student societies from universities across the United Kingdom and Eire.

UKEC remains committed in contributing towards nation building by championing our brand of student activism, the one that contributes in providing platform for non-partisan intellectual discourse, community development, promoting the nation abroad, developing employability, tackling brain drain and strengthening unity.
