Educate People to Get Rid of Gambling

LLG Cultural Development Centre, KL & Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall and Tamil Foundation have issued a joint press statement title “Educate People to Get Rid of Gambling” in responding to the second phase anti-gambling campaign by GMJ (Gerakan Membantah Judi) on 2th June 2010.

We praise the concerted effort of GMJ and other civil society groups that successfully forced the government to withdraw the sports betting licence. But we hold the view that any further anti-gambling campaign should adapt an educational approach and promote awareness among people, instead of advocate for government banning on gambling.

Please read the full press statement in Malay language or Chinese language.
