Do you feel you are being manipulated and driven into a world of excessive consumption? As consumers we need to be aware of the hidden agendas of those doing the producing, and work towards a just society rather than a justme one. Ooi Kim Aun, Azmi Hamid, Hatijah Hashim and Mageswari Sangaralingam of the Penang Consumers Association will share their knowledge and experience of basic needs, consumption education in school and successful health campaigns. Donations to help with organising expenses are welcome.
