Singapore. The need for peaceful protest

Readers of this blog who are unfamiliar with the goings on in Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore, may think reading the comments that there are many who think Singapore is a democracy based on the rule of law. The reader is warned that they may be Singapore government employees whose job is to discredit those who criticize Lee Kuan Yew's authoritarian rule. Please use your discretion as to how much weight you will give these comments.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

If you agree that Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore refuses to give you your CPF retirement pensions. If you agree that the poor and unemployed are neglected and in poverty while Lee Kuan Yew and his ministers pay themselves millions. If you agree that Singapore is for the rich foreigners and not for you. If you agree that several billions of dollars have been squandered by Ho Ching, Lee Kuan Yew's son's wife, money that rightfully belongs to you.

If you agree that Lee Kuan Yew's government is not listening to your grievances. If you agree there is no way at present that your grievances will be heard. If you agree that you are suffering in silence.

Then you must act. Then you must realize that the only way you can get justice and fairness is to protest. Peacefully protest without violence. And if you agree that these laws put in place prohibiting peaceful protest, the only available avenue you have, are wrong in law.

Then you must protest now. You must make your voice heard the only way you can. You cannot allow this government to deny you your basic rights.

Lee Kuan Yew is terrified of any protest. Through protest, peacefully, you can make your voices heard.

Exercise your right which the law gives you under the Constitution. Provisions put in place criminalizing these acts are wrong and unacceptable.

Act now. Protest. You can make a better Singapore for yourselves and your future generations. Hold Lee Kuan Yew accountable for his actions. As matters stand, he and his hand picked ministers are unaccountable to anyone. Protesting is your only hope for a better Singapore.

Hi Gopalan,

I read with keen interest your blog entries and believe it has garnered quite a regular following.
I was wondering why don't you monetize from your blogs.
Your search engine rankings are top notch. Your following grows, your content is regularly updated and posted.
All these are elements to earning a good income while blogging.
Why not transfer to your own site and domain with Wordpress installed so that you'll have absolute ownership of your content. Then You might want to add Google Adsense so for that's where the income comes from.
It's time to let the marketer imerge from the lawyer in you.
Nothing could be sweeter than poking at LKY and his minions and making an income out of it. What say you?
