ThumbnailLena(HTS)

You can play your part to support the #DefendLena Campaign by:

  1. International Friends of Lena Hendry Letter Writing Campaign
  2. Tweet #defendlena to the Attorney General @AGCPutrajaya, Home Minister @Zahid_Hamidi and Prime Minister @NajibRazak
    Suggested messages include:

    • Up to 3 years in jail and/or RM 30,000 fine #DefendLena
    • Screening a documentary is not a crime #DefendLena
    • I should decide what I want to see, not what censors/govt. wants me to see #DefendLena
    • Imposing a permit before any screening is against our basic freedoms #DefendLena
    • The film is available online so why continue to punish Lena #DefendLena
  3. Urgent Action by Amnesty International
    • Urging the authorities to overturn the conviction against Lena Hendry, and to drop all charges against her unconditionally
    • Urging the Malaysian government to drop all charges against other human rights defenders charged under repressive laws that have been used to stifle dissent by judicially harassing human rights defenders for peacefully carrying out their work
    • Urging the authorities to repeal or amend excessive, disproportionate and vaguely drafted laws which violate the right to freedom of expression, such as the Film Censorship Act, and bring them into line with international human rights law and standards.
