Actions speak louder than words

Today is the 27th anniversary of Operation Spectrum, carried out on 21st May 1987. People are still being detained without trial by the Singapore government today. When will we have justice for those who were wrongfully detained?

On 21 May 1987, 16 people were arrested under the ISA, in dawn raids conducted all over Singapore. It was a huge operation. The police called it “Operation Spectrum”. Imagine a minimum of about ten police officers arresting one unarmed person. Sixteen people would have involved 160 police personnel on the ground not counting those who were trailing the 16 for at least twelve hours before the raids and those who were in the police headquarters planning the operation, setting up the rooms for interrogation, discussing the method of interrogation and taking care of the dirty cells that would eventually receive the prisoners. Yes the operation was huge and totally unnecessary because all the 16 were unarmed law abiding citizens. They were not even political opponents.

A month after, on 20 June 1987, six more persons, three of them polytechnic student leaders were arrested.

On 20 June 2014 morning, Roy and I prepared documents for submission of NMP.
In the afternoon, we were at the parliament house.

By evening, I was suddenly flamed for things that I did not do.
Today morning, Roy was flamed by the same account but the same account took down the post.
We expected these.

This is not the first time I was accused of being pro-pap.
This is also not the first time I was accused of being anti-pap.
I’m not a politician and I do not serve any political party.
I want to help fight for the rights of Singaporeans to voice out what’s wrong and you can go decide for yourselves.
Be logical, state facts, if you’re speaking to impersonators, report them to the police instead.
I don't need you to think like me. I just want you to think to think of the future of this country.

There are politicians who took part in GE2011 took the opportunity to condemn us.
Fact is, the CPF issues have been there for decades but what did they do?
In Feb’s event, I said “If we were to all unite together, and we were to vote wisely in the next election, we can make what we have been saying today possible.”
In May’s event, I said “If they don’t know how to take care of us, then we must unite instead of letting them treat us like this.”
I know there are some who ask why I don’t just publish and shame these politicians too.
The answer is enshrined in our laws: Our Constitution protects the right to practice free speech, I accept that people are going to call me awful things every day, and I will always defend their right to do so.

This route is not easy but we will continue to fight on the internet, we will fight at Speakers' Corner, we will fight all over the world, and we will fight forever especially for transparency and accountability of our CPF.

Singaporeans, learn to fight for our rights to transparency and accountability of our CPF by standing in solidarity on 7 June 4pm at Hong Lim Park
