SDP’s timely reminder and to do

In Corporate governance on 18/09/2011 at 10:58 am

No more elections until at least 2015. Time to put aside the badge of activism (attending rallies, reading blogs and posting comments, or donating) or caring abt changing society?

NO says the SDP. …  Singapore Demiocrats need to warn Singaporeans that we cannot afford to think that from here on out we just have to rely on elections once every five or six years to bring about democratic change. If that is all we do, we will fail and change will not come. Article

So what does it recommend?

we have to double up our effort and continue working to reform the election process, press for media freedom and push for freedom of speech and assembly. For WP, SDP and SPP activists, they know what this means. They will walk the ground in their chosen areas. Did you know that days after the 2006 defeat in Aljunied, Sylvia Lim and other WP activists and volunteers were walking the ground in Aljunied.

The bloggers and socio-political websites are still writing with one notable exception. Is TRE AWOL or MIA? Any ideas?

What abt the other S’poreans who want change but have lower energy levels? Juz feel guilty abt the non-action, and open yr wallets and purses to proven fighters for the causes you support  when they come a’calling for money. The fighters for a better S’pore cannot be sustained by emails of appreciation and fresh air. Periodically they need money. Be generous when proven fighters ask for donations.

And if the ordinary S’porean who cares doesn’t even donate? Absent this, 50 years from now we’ll still be wistfully talking about how close the opposition came to winning at the polls.
