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.

PARLIAMENTARY RESPONSE TO SUNGEI ROAD MARKET PETITION DEEPLY DISAPPOINTING

There are also some inconsistency and ambiguity with the figures cited in Parliament. Out of the “200 vendors” reportedly engaged by the Government, SMS Khor said “more than 60 are receiving some form of Government assistance”, while a vague “more than 80” indicated they do not require assistance after SRM ceases on July 11. This still leaves “70 or so” vendors who are assessing their options. Simple arithimetics dictates that adding the 3 category of vendors mentioned would exceed the reported 200 “engaged” vendors.

PETITION TO RETAIN SUNGEI ROAD MARKET, BOUND TO END IN FAILURE

About 200 people have so far signed a petition calling on the authorities to either retain or conserve the Sungei Road flea market. This petition was started by Mr Koh Ah Koon, 76, the president of the Association for the Recycling of Second Hand Goods.

He said that he will continue to collect signatures for the petition, until the day the Sungei Road flea market is supposed to close down, which is in July. The market was cited by one signatory as a venue that provides the elderly hawkers a legitimate source of income and can be seen as an engagement programme for seniors - not that different from those run by community centres. The area in Sungei Road had already been earmarked for residential use.

S'PORE SAMSUNG USERS DEMAND FULL REFUNDS FOR GALAXY NOTE 7, 1 TO 1 EXCHANGE UNACCEPTABLE!

Samsung is offering a full refund on the device in many parts of the world including Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan and the United States. Disgracefully, Samsung Singapore is only offering a 1-1 exchange and retailers are not offering refunds. Clearly, Singapore customers are getting a second class treatment when compared to the exchange offers other countries are getting. People should be allowed to chose another phone or get a complete refund and simply wait until they see which way things go for the Note 7 in future.
