废除煽动法令,成立“废除煽动法令运动”

公民社会联署文告: 废除煽动法令,成立“废除煽动法令运动” 5/9/2014   我等联署组织连诀严正抗议,政府继续使用具压迫性、殖民元素和违反民主的《1948年煽动法令》。   煽动法令为英殖民政府的压迫性法律之一,以此镇压先贤们在争取国家独立时的言论自由和意见。若我等意欲朝向真正的独立,此恶法必须废除。   煽动法令的诠释太广,让政府能轻易滥用,以对付任何对政府、领袖和执政党作出正当批评、发表民主言论的人士冠上罪名。   根据煽动法令,几乎所有关于类似争议的话语和出版,都能视之为煽动。因此,该恶法明显用于保护当权者利益,钳制反对者与不满者,让特定议题成为禁忌。以此扼杀公民自由,营造出让人生畏的氛围,不禁让人联想到在马哈迪铁腕政权时代的白色恐怖。   政府滥用煽动法令的趋势,自2013年6月兴权会领袖P. Uthayakumar及2014年2月已故行动党前主席卡巴星被煽动法令定罪的案件中,可见一斑。   除此,我们也高度关注总检察署在煽动法令下,明显地选择性提控批评政府者的举动。   过去一个月,只见煽动法令动辄为新一波政治打压,阻吓的目标人物包括民选议员和律师,然两者的天职皆为大众利益而发声。   遭控告人士包括:   大卫奥洛(David Orok),沙巴立新党成员 阿兹米沙隆(Azmi Sharom),马来亚大学法律系教授 苏兰德兰(N Surendran)  ,律师兼霹雳巴东色海国会议员 卡立沙末(Khalid Samad),雪兰莪莎阿南国会议员 雷尔(RSN Rayer) ,律师兼槟城斯里德里玛州议员 阿都拉再益(Abdullah Zaik Abdul Rahman),马来西亚穆斯林阵线主席 郭素沁,  吉隆坡士不爹国会议员 蔡添强, 吉隆坡峇都国会议员 希山穆丁莱益(Hishamuddin Rais),社运份子 阿当阿里(Adam
