HONG LIM PARK

Singaporeans Hold Hong Lim Park Speeches & Gather Signatures Against Fake News Bill, But Will They Make A Difference?

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.

ABSURD TO HAVE RESERVED PRESIDENCY BUT DENY HONG LIM PARK SPEECH DUE TO "RACIAL ISSUES"

A netizen thinks it is absurd to deny people from speaking about the upcoming PE at Hong Lim Park. "In reserving a Malay candidate for the presidential election, it is inevitable that race will be part of the subject matter should we want to openly call out on the government's policy. Hence, it can never get debated publicly by citizens due to existing regulations."

HUMAN RIGHTS ORGANISATION: DON'T PUT BARRICADES AT PINK DOT, YOU ARE SUPPRESSING ACTIVISM

Amnesty International, which campaigns for human rights, published a statement on Singapore's restrictions to this year's Pink Dot. It asked the authorities to revoke the idea of putting barricades at the Speaker's Corner and claims it is an attempt to suppress activism. "Amnesty International calls on the Singaporean authorities to respect and protect the right to peaceful assembly and ensure that they work to facilitate peaceful demonstrations instead of creating more restrictions to silence communities, or their critics." Do you also think barricades are too much?

NETIZEN: FENCE OFF HONG LIM PARK TO BAN FOREIGNERS FROM ATTENDING PINK DOT!

Netizen Kindred Cheong called for Pink dot organisers to fence off Hong Lim Park from foreigners and PRs.

I am glad that only Singaporeans and permanent residents (PRs) can attend Pink Dot from this year onwards, and only local companies can sponsor it. It is important to disallow foreign individuals and organisations from interfering in Singaporean politics and social issues. We must stop foreigners from abusing values such as democracy, freedom of speech and human rights in Singapore, and from spreading their agenda here. The Pink Dot organisers should fence off Hong Lim Park and employ security officers and registration staff to ensure that only Singaporeans and PRs attend the event.
