Zunar Lands In Great Britain As Serious Consequences For Sedition Act Wait Back Home

The Independent notes that the sedition laws being used by the Malaysian government to grind against the cartoonist Zunar for the content of the cartoons and his vigor in laying claim to his right to express himself in a way the law should support came from 1948 when Great Britain was in charge and desired to suppress communist political expression.

It's very important we pay attention to Zunar because not only is he on the cusp to be partly, massively screwed by what seems like a vengeful police/justice ruling class in his home nation, but if god forbid he's sent to jail he should be sent to jail in front of millions of white-hot, pissed-off witnesses. I continue to hope for the most beneficial outcome.
