Parties join forces to fight PPSMI

[...] The GMP, which was launched on 31 Jan, comprises 50 organisations, ranging from political parties such as Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) and PAS; student groups such as the Persatuan Kebangsaan Pelajar Islam Malaysia (PKPIM); and language stakeholders like Persatuan Penulis Nasional (Pena) and Persatuan Linguistik Malaysia.

The launch also saw literary luminaries such as national laureate Datuk A Samad Said, poet Che Shamsuddin Othman (Dinsman), and writer and publisher Ainon Muhammad showing their support.
