From Egypt to Syria, protestors have been calling for more freedoms this year…but such demonstrations are not limited to the Arab world. Last weekend, more than 1,000 people were arrested in Malaysia while demanding election reforms in that country. Erica Hobbs is a Michigan native who lives and works in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. She’s also a former WDET intern who went to Saturday’s demonstration. She shared her eyewitness account with WDET’s Pat Batcheller. Click the link above to hear the interview.
