Letter to The Straits Times Forum:
20 Mar 08
I refer to the peaceful protest by SDP held on 15 March 2008.
I got to know about the protest through word of mouth and decided to exercise my constitutional rights as a Singapore Citizen by participating together with my two young children. My purpose was simple: to highlight the rising cost of living that is affecting me and my family.
Recent increases in childcare costs, milk powder, transportation and medical costs, are taking a toll on families like me with very young dependents.
What started out as a peaceful protest turned unnecessarily rowdy in the end because the police held up the group of protesters outside Funan Digimall and prevented them from moving.
The police intervention created a scene that attracted big crowds of passersby.
As a Citizen who is non-partisan, I will support causes I believe in, regardless of who the organizers are. In times of price hikes where we were told by our ministers to buy house brand bread, eat frozen meat, I do not think I have the spare cash to enjoy the luxury of junk foods. It's World Consumer Day on 15 March 2008, so what is wrong with protesting about the recent escalating price hikes?
What has become of our society if even speaking up has become a crime, and peaceful protests end up with arrest, yet limping terrorists are out on the loose?

this is the notorius LAMEI who's always posting her kind of craps in sammyboy's coffeeshop. she was so bloody proud that she brought her kids , her teletubbies to attend some silly childish protest held by SDP. i wonder if chiatilik wasn't involved, would she be still so keen?
the increase of consumers' prices especially food is a WHOLE WIDE PHENOMENON. those idiots who were protesting were simply too ignorant and way too detached from reality. there were about 30 ding protestors there. that's maybe including kids they brought along. such irresponsible parents who brought their kids to protest really have to be charged for putting them in such a risk of being hurt should the whole scene turned raucous and ugly. Yet this mother of all thing could still brag that she wanted her kids to be "politically aware" while still sucking their pacifiers.
WHAT A LOAD OF CRAPS!!
those kids might to taught to disregard the laws and that when police were arresting the protestors, the police were WRONG. how would these kids later grow up to be? lawless??
very sad .... that parents because of their personal waywardness are inculcating such moral into young innocent minds.
