We will be planning a one-month campaign against the 6-million population target set by our government.
Our online polls conducted to date shown that 88% or 371 votes are against the 6-million population mark.
I have spoken to many Singaporeans and most of them agree that the island could not take in any more people especially if they are from overseas.
Our trains are jammed pack even during non-peak hours and our HDB resale prices have shot through the roof in unbelievable fashion.
Many young PMETs have complained to me that they could not afford even our BTO flats as the cost tend to follow that of the over-priced resale HDB prices in the surrounding area.
Its also unfathomable how we can accommodate an additional 800, 000 foreigners in the near future without sacrificing some jobs held by our own local citizens.
You can’t just bring in so many foreigners and not provide them with adequate employment and housing facilities.
I have spoken recently to many well educated PMETs who are still been replaced by foreign talents and there is little job protection for our locals.
Many Singaporeans I spoke to also feel that they could not do anything about the population matter and simply choose to leave our country – many out of frustration and resignation.
This strong feeling of resignation among the local populace is the main factor which pushes me to initiate this peaceful one-month campaign against the 6-million population target set by our government.
There is also this subtle fear that our local Singaporean population will ultimately be replaced by foreigners in about 20-30 years’ time if the floodgates continue to be so widely open.
I also want to reiterate that the campaign is not targetting against foreigners living here but the adverse consequences of over-populating the country artificially. I am sure that our foreign friends feel the same kind of sardine-like environment when they take our MRT trains and shop in our malls.
Details of the campaign proper will be out soon once we are ready to announce them.
All I can say is that will be launching it at Hong Lim Park and the one-month campaign will include a run and forum.
Meanwhile, our site designer has provided us with four designs and I want our readers to choose the design which they want us to print for our campaign tee.
Simply place your vote on the comment column below and we will tally them up when the voting ends on 23 Oct (Wed).
The design with the most number of votes will be our campaign tee.
Once the design is being selected, we will publish the cost of the tee and asks for your online order later.
The tee shirt order is also one way for us to raise some funds for the one-month-long campaign.
Thanks Singapore for your support!
We will count on you to ensure that this campaign will be successful.
