PRC woman’s attempt at self-immolation: why it’s NOT surprising
According to the Chinese tabloids, a PRC woman attempted self-immolation outside the Istana yesterday.
It comes as no surprise to me at all. It was only a matter of time!
It seems that she had gone to seek the President’s assistance because her daughter’s private school refused a fee refund.
The Chinese have had a long history of rebelliousness against authority, and are prepared to fight for their rights, hang the consequences.
For instance, in 2009 in Chengdu a woman burnt herself to death in protest against the demolition of her home.
Again in 2009, Beijing residents staged a protest outside the new CCTV complex against demolition of their homes.
The Singapore government seems infatuated with the Chinese, lauding them as “harder-striving” and “harder-driving”. So it opened the flood-gates to a Chinese invasion of Singapore.
But they are also harder-fighting.
Mark my word, the attempt at self-immolation yesterday will spark other copy-cat acts of defiance by PRC people.
