16 Feb 2013 - Singaporean Singapore Day
You must read The Guardian's Singapore protest: 'Unfamiliar faces are crowding our land' [Link]
Ain't it a shame that Straits Times and other mainstream media in Singapore has not written anything on this historic event.
Today, 16 February 2013, is the day that Singaporeans will stand together at Hong Park at 4pm for a "Singaporean Singapore"! (thanks to Faisal of WP for this call)
Though it is raining now (11.30 am) where I live, I pray it will stop soon. Should it continue, I sincerely hope that Singaporeans are courageous and strong enough to brave the rain, the muddy field to 'be in the moment' to show the PAP government and the world wide world that
Singaporeans aren't Quitters!
Singaporeans aren't Fair Weather Wimps!
Singaporeans aren't Pushovers!
Singaporeans aren't Retards!
The Singapore Pledge is not an Aspiration.
The Singapore Pledge is now a Call To Action.
On 16 February 2013, Singaporeans will gather at Hong Lim Park at 4pm to be, not pledge, not aspire, but
TO BE ONE UNITED PEOPLE,
REGARDLESS OF RACE, LANGUAGE OR RELIGION
TO BUILD A DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY
BASED ON JUSTICE AND EQUALITY
SO AS TO ACHIEVE HAPPINESS, PROSPERITY AND
PROGRESS FOR OUR NATION
TO PROTECT OUR CHILDREN AND OUR GRANDCHILDREN
FROM BEING INVADED BY ALIEN FOREIGNERS
WHO SO ARROGANTLY TAKE AWAY
OUR LIVING SPACES AND
OUR RIGHTS TO PRESERVE OUR WAY OF LIFE.
Lest I be accused of being xenophobic, I am not. I have nothing against foreigners. I am against a government that will make Singapore lose its core.. It is already bad with 5.3 million of more than 40% aliens now. For the sake of my children and grandchildren, I cannot allow our lives to be messed up further by allowing more foreigners to take away our core, our values, our way of life!
