Protest against 6.9 million: Hong Lim Park Protest
At 5:30 pm people were still streaming in to participate in what is billed as the largest public protest since independence.
By 5:30 pm the crowd had swelled to an estimated 5000.
I came at 4 and noticed the huge difference by then..
Every vantage point was occupied with many spilling on the pavement outside.
The rain failed to dampen enthusiasm to show support.
Up to 2 hours they stood firm with rain streaming down their faces. Nobody quit.
Well done Singaporeans!
We were not empty vessels after all.
