This is something I started in response to the detention of Maria Chin Abdullah, Chairperson of Bersih 2.0. Bersih is a movement for free and fair elections in Malaysia. Maria was arrested on 18 Nov 2016 under SOSMA (Security Offenses Special Measures Act 2012), a cruel and draconian law that allows for detention without trial. She is being held in an undisclosed location, in a 15 x 8ft windowless cell, in solitary confinement.
I am posting these to my Facebook page, but I will archive them here too, to be accessible across platforms.

“PEDANG DAN BUNGA // FLOWER AND SWORD” – DIY ZINE
I made yesterday’s story into a 16-page zine (DIY book) you can print out and distribute!
It fits on an A4 sheet and looks like this:
To make it, you need the following materials:
– A4 paper
1) Print out the images below on two sides of one sheet of A4 paper. Click images to open in a new window and right click to save to your computer.
Here is the layout for the pages, so you can see what goes where:
2. Fold the paper in half
3. Fold it in half again
4. Fold it in half one last time
4. Staple the center
5. Cut off the top and right edges and you have a zine!
