Gerakan Hapus Akta Hasutan

Gerakan Hapus Akta Hasutan (GHAH) is a movement supported by over 132 civil society organisations in Malaysia, led by SUARAM, Lawyers for Liberty, Amnesty International Malaysia and IKRAM, among others. GHAH organises a national campaign to end threats posed by the colonial-era Sedition Act against the right to freedom of speech, academic freedom, and press freedom.

GHAH’s three demands are:

Repeal the Sedition Act 1948.
Drop all existing charges and release all those who have been incarcerated under the Act.
No replacement act with the same draconian provisions.
