@ Mass protest on 16th Feb – biggest event since post-independence?



""..
Mr Tan Jee Say, Mr Tan Kin Lian, Mr Vincent Wijey, Mr Leong Sze Hian, Mr Ravi Philemon, Ms Jeannette Chong, and Mr Kumaran Pillai are among the other prominent speakers for the event.
Each of them will be given ten minutes to speak so that everyone will have their chance to express their views equally.

...

Amazing, the foreign press has being most supportive of our event and so far Bloomberg, AFP, CNN, ABC news, Reuters and Yahoo have all indicated their interest to cover the event on that historic day...."

A non-political-party sided event, should not have political party speaker in that event. It defeats the neutrality of such events to occur.

Not going...

Large turnout at Speakers' Corner for protest against Population White Paper



SINGAPORE - A crowd of more than 1,000 people gathered at Speakers' Corner for a protest against the Population White Paper that was endorsed by Parliament last week.

Many turned up with umbrellas and caps, braving the light drizzle at around 4pm on Saturday afternoon. Organisers had lined up a list of 12 speakers, including activists as well as current and former opposition party members.

The White Paper had drawn flak largely because of the 6.9 million headline population figure. The Government has strenuously emphasised that this number is a planning parameter, not a target.

The first speaker was National Solidarity Party member Ravi Philemon.

He revved up the crowd, asking if bringing in 900,000 to 1 million foreigners every decade was acceptable, to which they responded by shouting "No".

Among those gathered was IT executive Mike Tan, 45 who came with his son, Yuan, 15.

He said: "The event is to say no to 6.9 million, and I want to show support."

Looks like we Singaporeans really care about the potential influx of foreigners. Great turn out at Hong Lim. It's better than all of SDP's previous events at Hong Lim combined.. Shows that people can't be bothered about SDP and their people.

come to think of it, if the larger the population that the infrastructure is built out for, the better it will be, especially since it doesnt impact that actual population growth rate. So lets say you build the infrastructure for 8m, and in 2030 we have 6.5m.... isn't that good?

so you guys wanna lower it? and have more crowded public transport etc?

Because track record shows that it *always* didn't turn out like that for the past 50 years. Whenever they increase the number for the infrastructure, the population size increase even more.

It's like putting seat belts and air bag in cars. It gives people that sense of security, resulting in them driving even faster. Accidents actually increases more after seat belts and air bags are implemented.

Likewise, PAP always thinks the infrastructure can handle more and not using them is a waste of resources, so they always bring in even more people. And in the end, track record shows they always bring in over the limit of what the infrastructure can afford.

I agree that it's a nice thing to plan for 8 million, and only mentally prepared for 6.5 million. But with PAP, when they plan for 8 million, they are prepared for 7.5 million but always end up besting them, and hitting 8.5 million unintentionally.
