This year is the 23rd anniversary of mass arrests and detentions using the dreaded Internal Security Act. History witnessed the arrest of 106 Malaysians under Operation Lalang and 22 Singaporeans under Operation Spectrum.

To re-examine this significant era, Strategic Information and Research Development Centre (SIRD), Abolish ISA Movement (GMI) and Civil Rights Committee (CRC-KLSCAH) are organising the launch of TWO books by ex-ISA detainees:
• Beyond the Blue Gate: Recollections of a Political Prisoner by Teo Soh Lung
• 445 Days Under The ISA: Operation Lalang, 1987-89 by Dr Kua Kia Soong
During this function, we will have a discussion on the theme “In Retrospect of Operation Lalang-Spectrum: Re-Examination of Malaysia’s & Singapore’s 23 Years of Civil Rights & Social Movement in Post-Operation Lalang-Spectrum Era”.
