Protest against 6.9 million: Protest at Hong Lim Park Part 4

February 16, 2013

I haven’t heard the National Anthem sung with such poignancy till today. For three solid hours they stood, undeterred by the rain. The crowd was so well-behaved that it gives the lie to the regime’s fears that public demonstrations would cause chaos and security issues. This is just a lame excuse. This prohibition is consistent […]

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.

The inescapable conclusion is that the majority of Singaporeans stand solidly together to denounce the ruling party for the projected population growth of 6.9 million. So well calibrated? Not 7 million are they sure? A generous […]

White Paper on Population: Singaporeans say NO

February 2, 2013

Say what you like about Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong of Singapore but he has an infectious smile and perhaps laughter too. He has a hidden side that the public are not aware of: a great sense of humour. Before the Punggol East by-election, he declared that the PAP stood by the side of Singaporeans. […]

White Paper on Population: we demand a referendum

January 31, 2013

True to its core value of repression, the ruling regime is shafting down our throats a population of 6.9 million by 2030. Why not just say 7 million? Taking us for zombies again? What an insult! On reflection, this is consistent with their well-known trait of arrogance. We do what we think is right, who […]
