How to protest effectively when there’s no GE

S’poreans unhappy enough with PAP to donate $1m

is the header I used when sending an email to an overseas connection enclosing a link which began

After raising more than S$1 million in about three days, the three Workers’ Party Members of Parliament (MPs) who are facing civil lawsuits have suspended their public appeal for legal funds.

Given that in S’pore, a one-person street protest is illegal unless police permission is obtained (Seelan Palay: Sylvia Lim was right) and even holding up placards on private land will lead to police visiting scene and having a chat (ask the Reuters staff who held up placards on office premises), publicly donating serious $ to Oppo MPs is a good sign that there are unhappy S’poreans who are willing to walk the talk: unlike the cybernuts who publicly wank themselves on sites like TOC and TRE but who are unwilling to fund these sites.

They talk the talk, but don’t walk the talk. They are life’s born losers.

Juz before the appeal and response, Terry of Terry’s Online Channel commented on FB that he was “pissed” because in the last yr TOC had received $8,000 in donations, and most of the money came from three persons. TRE gave up asking for donations yrs ago.

Coming back to the demonstration of public unhappiness with the PAP govt, given the PAP’s obsession about the importance of money (example Ex-PM’s money obsession causing PAP problems), I’m sure that PM and other PAP leaders are wondering what further goodies to hand out to keep the 70% happy or what monkey to kill to keep the 30% fearful.

Seriously, the donations should worry the PAP. Secret Squirrel tells me that he knows of several people who regularly vote PAP who donated. His sidekick Morocco Mole tells me that several pro PAP “like” this FB comment

The problem is this. Yes WP ward has an issue based on rules set forth by the governing party. However, because of the lack of action to correct all the problems in the government agencies, nevermind the TC for now, the PAP has no moral right to question others.

That’s the problem…that’s why no one gives any respect because none is due to them.

  1. chances are those low income residents in the wp areas won’t be too happy about the more than S$1 million raised for the wp mps’ lawyers’ fees.

  2. Perhaps it shows that Singaporeans want opp like WP and will support them. Or they just an equilibrium.. they dun want the WP, the most credible opposition to them, to be sued until bankrupt and there is no one to oppose PAP.

    All in all its very heartening to know the opp is not lost cause

  3. I bet those low income residents will be even more pissed that service & conservancy money are being used to pay the TC’s million dollar lawyers & court fees & services by KPMG to ownself sue ownself LOL!
