Confronting Half a Century of One-Party Rule

Anwar Ibrahim warns against a new wave of human rights violators: governments that hide behind a façade of democracy and commit crimes in its name. As leader of the opposition movement in Malaysia, a country that has suffered under this new type of authoritarian rule, Anwar remains steadfast in his trust in democracy and rule of law and the wisdom of the people. He implores the audience to scrutinize the validity of vote-winning slogans such as freedom, democracy, and human rights, which are now too often used as empty promises or skewed in meaning.
