Firstly a big Thank You for organising the protest.
I attended with 15 other people in my circle including my colleagues, friends and young-adult children who brought along some friends too.
It sure took a lot to organize and the impact was felt as word of the success of the event spread around.
Pity that the ruling government chose to stay arrogant and wishing that this was just a flash in the pan. Very much like what elderstatesman LKY thought about Obama?
I went to your website to look around and wondered if it is possible to allow job ads from companies looking for staff.
From another angle, could your society act like a head hunter and provide CV s to companies to canvass them to hire unemployed Singaporeans? Perhaps you have done this before so pardon me if I am out of line here.
I have more than 30 years experience in the banking sector and currently run a team of asset-class advisory in a private bank.
I have been made redundant before and totally empathise with them and have thought of setting up an organisation to help our fellow brothers and sisters to find New employment. Just got too lazy !
But I feel energised after Sat and especially in the wake of what is about to happen here in our country with relentless influx of foreigners which I suspect will create a bigger citizen-unemployment problem.
Perhaps we can meet and I could help in some way or we can discuss possibilities? I am thinking of roping some friends in too to help out if we all believe we can contribute meaningfully.
Congratulations to you for the most successful event organized at the Speaker’s Corner – delighted beyond expectations in spite of the main stream media publishing articles in the morning trying to sway some minds otherwise.
You have all my support for another event organized. It is imperative to keep this as an on going subject to gather more support from the True Blue Singaporeans. Repeating emphasis on the incompetence and promises not kept will definitely convince more citizens to do the right thing…… Do hope you can find speakers in the next event to surface AIM Sega. I would not be surprised more Pappies will have sleepless nights…..
Looking forward to hear exciting news on the next event in not too distant future….
Thanks Gilbert for taking the pain and effort to rally against PAP bad policy.
Yes, agreed with you.
We welcome foreigners to our island but we are against government poorly thought-out immigration policy.
With this stance, we could win foreigners to our side who was lure here by the government to work and later to be abandoned by their employer.
Suggest we allow some of these foreigner workers who are out of job or abandon
by employer for even cheaper labour to speak at the rally.
Since LKY say we Singapore are world class, then we make sure that the government is also world class and act responsibly not just towards its citizens, but foreigners as well.
Once again, thanks for the effort. Look forward to another rally on a monthly basis.
I am a 25 year old male born and breed Singaporean that is currently studying in Melbourne, Australia.
I would like to share with you my deepest appreciation and love for your voice that is changing Singapore’s history.
And even though I am not physically there to show my support, you have my upmost respect and gratitude for the courage you and everyone else has in the organization.
Reasons for leaving my country, my home Singapore was due to the influx of foreign workers that has killed the love I once had. But now with your voice and the organization, I have finally found the pride of being a proud, true- blue Singaporean.
With this, all I can say is Thank You.
Please don’t ever stop fighting for the people of Singapore.
Singapore will always be my home no matter where I will be.
From a fellow Singaporean
