Lawan Face Mask
Black cloth face mask with printed word ‘Lawan’ meaning ‘Fight’.
The word was widely used as hashtag ‘#Lawan’ across the social media platforms in July 2021 to demand the resignation of Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin for mishandling the COVID-19 crisis.
On 31st July 2021, youth protesters gathered at Jalan Tun Perak, Kuala Lumpur and marched their way to Dataran Merdeka with placards and mock corpses, symbolising the increasing number of deaths due to pandemic.
The face mask was acquired as part of Pandemic Archive.
