Launch of "The Fajar Generation"

From left to right: Chong Ton Sin, Koh Kay Yew, Tan Jing Quee, Dr Lim Hock Siew, Dr Poh Soo Kai and R. Joethy.

 

From the publicity email for the book:

 

"The Fajar Generation tells the hitherto neglected story of a remarkable group of men and women who advanced a radical agenda of anti-colonialism, democracy, multiculturalism and social justice through the agency of the University of Malaya Socialist Club. Through personal memoirs and analytical essays the contributors to this collection illuminate their own roles in that struggle – the hopes and despairs, the triumphs and defeats. At the same time they remind us of just how much of that progressive political agenda is still to be won in contemporary Malaysia and Singapore."
