Singaporeans have expressed concerns over the proposed fake news law. Some will be taking part in an event at Hong Lim Park today while others have signed a document calling for the withdrawal of the bill. Everytime there are new changes, Singaporeans voice displeasure through petitions, speeches and discussions. Have conversations worked? Will they work? If the elites do not start listening to what people have to say, it is time Singaporeans wake up themselves and make a choice that will let us all be heard.
A contact of Nicholas Lim had posted a statement on behalf of him regarding the NUS saga. Lim was slammed by Singaporeans for being let off easily by NUS after filming a female student in the shower. The statement wrote that he was sorry for causing distress and will face the consequences. He is ashamed of himself but hoped that Monica will find closure. He was also thick-skinned enough to encourage victims of sexual harassment to speak up. What do you think? Will you forgive him?
Another woman voiced out about being secretly filmed in the shower by a man. She was inspired by Monica Baey's courage and thought that she should speak out to let the public know that these incidents are common. In her case, the man was let off because there was not enough evidence. Up till now, she is still traumatized by the event as the man was her good friend. Those who wish to help her may reach out to her as she is still lost, confused and afraid.
Education Minister Ong Ye Kung has spoken up about the NUS controversy. He told the NUS President and Board Chairman to take a tough stand on issues that threaten students' safety. Its existing two strikes and you are gone method is too lenient when it comes to dealing with people who are charged with sexual misconduct. Other tertiary institutions will be reviewing their framework to put a stop to this unacceptable behaviour. Why does it have to take so much and so long for some justice to come to light?
NUS is under fire after an undergrad accused it of letting a perverted man off leniently. The man was caught for recording her in the school's shower but let off after a 12 month conditional warning. From her social media post, the school told her to keep quiet after getting the man to write her an apology letter. She is disgraced that NUS wanted to keep things hush hush and is rallying support for people to voice out against these injustices. If these perverts are let off so easily, who can say for sure that they will not commit the same offence again?
A video of a crazy security guard shouting at people in a coffeeshop has gone viral. The man was picking a fight with people and in a fit of anger, wanted to flip the table beside him. The woman who was eating at that table has earned the praise of the internet as she fought back by trying to throw a chair and a cup of water at him. Thankfully, the police arrived after a good few minutes. It is unclear why he was so angry but as a security guard, the last thing to do is to jeopardise other people's safety.
States Times Review and Singapore Herald's Alex Tan has appointed himself as the Strategy Leader to prepare for the next election.

He warned those who do not abide by his rules to risk losing their electoral deposit and political future.
A woman complained about a very bad water leakage in her bedroom toilet. She has been looking for plumbers to solve the problem for weeks but none of them succeeded or bothered to look into it. She was appalled that HDB will send plumbers down only for her problem to be neglected. What is she supposed to do, fix the pipes herself?
A Singaporean woman who was on a Singapore Airlines Business Class flight was unhappy at the airlines for failing to cater to her son's food allergy. She had presented proof of her son's condition but was denied a customised in-flight meal. One of the staff on board had to bring her husband down the plane so that he can get a takeaway meal. How pathetic!
Lee Hsien Yang posted that the AG has filed more than 500 pages worth of complaints against his wife, Lee Suet Fern. He said that LHL never voiced any issues with LKY's will when their father was alive. He was also bitter that his brother is unleashing so many complaints now even though he never bothered to discuss things with him and his sister, Lee Wei Ling. Lee Suet Fern has filed her Defence. How do you think this drama will unfold and how much public resources do you think will be wasted?
