Rights Activists Repressed!!!!

"I'm astounded by the police preventing the legitimate movement of people. The manner in which they are implementing it would be classified as intimidation. There's a disproportionate reaction and it shows another side to Singapore,"
who saw the stand-off as he walked by on Saturday, decided to stay the entire night

Thank goodness the police has won and Singapore is saved from chaos and disorder.
If they were allowed to march from Hong Lim to the Parliament House, Singapore's security would have been badly compromised and our system would be endangered. I'm therefore thankful to all the policemen and ISD men who turned up for the event, they (ISD) have shown that they are as relevant today as they were 4 decades when they were formed.

I wanted to go this morning to tell those fellers at Hong Lim to go home and get a shower because its not good to go without one for 2 days, but I was afraid that one of the ISD guys might mistake me as a supporter so I gave it a miss. Despite my wide smile in support of the '4 Million Smiles Campaign', they might still think that I'm a opposition supporter in disguise.

It is important not to allow these 7 people to walk towards parliament, after 4 decades of PAP rule we simply cannot risk such actions that will undermine our major million $ rebranding campaign that will make Singapore look hip and vibrant. If these 7 people manage to get to near the Suntec Convention Center, they will be seen by delegates from all over the world at the entrance of the big cage surrounding Suntec, their impression of Singapore will be damaged. Some of you cynics might say that the PAP has already done irreparable damage by banning those accredited NGOs members and banning outdoor protests. .....those are honest mistakes we can live with. Imagine if those delegates seeing Singaporeans (CSJ & sister) protesting at Suntec while foreign protesters are disallowed, I think they will be even more outraged. We just cannot let the Chees get to Suntec. ...it will definitely damage our rebranding campaign....

Mayb the gahmen should give them the progress angpow for the next election 1st so that they can learn how to march in shopping centres for LCD TV rather than marching to parliament for freedom. They may not be aware that we have a lot of freedom in choosing which channel to watch

We must stop the Chees from gathering more supporters. Only less then 10 protesters and we require 40+ police and isd.

Imagine if Chees gather support of hundreds or even thousands. 10000+++ police will be required! We'll have some serious manpower shortage!

On the other hand, if we allow them to march (only a handfu) and the men in blue (especially the numerous plain clothes) to participate, holding placards supporting the gahmen. Local as well as foreigners would think that it's a massive march showing support for gahmen. In this way, our rebranding exercise would be very successful

What an interesting way to express your opinion. Considering that many readers are stupid enough to miss the sarcasm.

The Chees organised the smallest democracy march in the history of mankind. It can only happen in Singapore. Instead of empowering the citizens of Singapore, they were outnumbered by policemen.

100 times more people turned up for the the Best Denki sale than the march.

Haha! I bursted out laughing when Chees only recuited 6 crows to joined him in the march.

To me, those 6 crows are just nothing but a sore in the history of democracy.

the chees shouldnt be part of a political party if they want greater acceptance from singaporeans.

they should try being the conscience of the nation instead.

and the other thing is...dont look so pissed if you going to be martyred for your beliefs. die also must die happy lah since you believe in a good cause!

Well, Dr. Chee Soo Juan has all along been the conscience of Singapore. Otherwise why would the pap machinery comes out with big canons blazing to villify & dehumanize Dr. Chee.

I applaud Dr. Chee for his courage in standing up for his beliefs and principles!
