Singing for a good cause

The Aliran Singers are coming to the Klang Valley for a “People First, Democracy Now” dinner! Join them for a night filled with music and dance performances and meet old friends and new in the struggle for a just society.

Reflect on what has been achieved and be inspired and uplifted. Their talented guest artistes FreeLoaders INC, Shanon Shah, Marion D’Cruz, Judimar Hernandez and Elaine Pedley will entertain as you tuck in to dinner. After a long absence from the Klang Valley, the Aliran Singers will be back to show you what they can do!  

Never heard of Aliran? It is an organisation for ‘social democratic reform’ that was founded in 1977. It advocates freedom, justice and solidarity; comment critically on social issues and offer independent analyses and alternative ideas. All this while keeping in mind the national and global picture based on universal human rights and spiritual values.

In 1987, the organisation received ‘A1-Roster Consultative Status’ with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations.

It puts across its message to the public through the publication of its journal, Aliran Monthly, which has been published for more than 30 years, and through thoughtful independent commentaries on its website (aliran.com). Occasionally, it organises talks, forums and workshops.

Its main source of income is from the sales of Aliran Monthly, donations and fund-raising activities. This dinner is part of its fund-raising effort this year.

 

Vegetarian food will be available for those who request it before the event.  

Date:  Saturday, 26 June 2010 in Petaling Jaya.

Come and join Aliran for an inspiring night in the struggle for justice, freedom and democracy.
