After defaming the PM & MM, they now want to ask Singaporeans to join them in a 'Empowerment March'. How despicable of them to ask Singaporeans to march under the hot sun when they can be themselves in an air-conditioned shopping center. He is disrupting our weekend shopping and buffet activities by having this march on Saturday.
In any other country, Chee Soon Juan would be 'just another activist' nobody would be bothered with him given the issues he is fighting for, transparency, citizen rights and democracy are actually non-issues in many countries. However, in Singapore has a unique system where certain things are traded away for the goodie bag we get before elections .....Chee Soon Juan's actions are downright disgusting - he is trying to remind us about what we lost. All of us have actually learned to 'move on' without harping on those things - there is no issue that a good buffet and new LCD TV cannot soothe.
As for empowerment, there is only one power that matters to most Singaporeans - buying power......their own buying power that is. Who cares if there old folks have to dig the rubbish bin for alum cans on our way to the shopping center, we can just walk faster and imagery will disappear from the corner of our eye. Why bother with rising medical bills if you're not sick. Why bother with freedom of speech if you what you say changes nothing anyway. What is important is when you look into your pocket, there is something left for the new MP3 player on sale....even if there isn't, the MAS has expanded personal credit so our kind banks can lend you some when your pocket is empty.
Please don't attend this "Empowerment March". There are many more important things to do on Saturday. I heard that Best Denki is having yet another Mega-Sale .....its airconditioned, there are prizes to be given out and lunch at the buffet restaurant will be so good....as long as your stomach is full, your bloodflow will be directed downwards away from your brain so you'll not think much about the issues........
