Youth tsunami, May 10

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - R.AGE -

In the af­ter­math of the most fiercely con­tested gen­eral elec­tion ever seen in Malaysia, hope sprung for an un­likely source – the youth of the na­tion, who helped spread mes­sages of em­pow­er­ment, pa­tri­o­tism and unity through ini­tia­tives like Jom Ba­lik Undi, the “Malaysian Spring” cam­paign, Kita Kawan Mah and Saya Mahu Pic­nic. The fact that there were 2.6 mil­lion first-time vot­ers also proved the Malaysian youth of today are no longer po­lit­i­cally ap­a­thetic – and we be­lieve they’re only just find­ing their voice.
