I will be there..Silent Sit-in Protest A Silent Sit-in protest will be held at Hong Lim Park today Saturday 16th Sep 2017,from 4.30pm to 6.30pm.l will be there.
Many Singaporeans have expressed their disappointment and anger about this Presidential Election after reading my last fb post ( which reached more than half a million people within 2 days)
While l have congratulated President Halimah Yacob on her unopposed election, like many other Singapireans, we are disappointed that 2 other candidates with reasonable credentials were disqualified, making this 2017 PE a no contest
It is not President Halimah as a person that Singaporeans are unhapoy about.it is about the way our Government has conducted this whole walkover Presidential Election.
I share the frustrations of other Singaporeans at being deprived of voting at this EP..
My attendence at this Silent Sit-in protest is a show of solidarity with Singaporeans who are unhappy with the way the government has denied us the right to vote and elect our President.The Government must not take us citizens for granted.
For many, this will be their first peaceful protest. There is no need to fear .Responsibe peaceful expressionis is good for the maturity of democracy in our country. Lets believe that Singapore can can be better when we are all united as one and are not afraid to show it.
