Activist Gilbert Goh has posted his announcement that there will be a silent sit-in protest against the reserved presidential election this Saturday, 16 September from 4.30PM to 6.30PM.
“Dear Fellow Singaporeans,
We have just received the NParks permit to stage a first-ever Silent Sit-in Protest against the Reserved Presidential Election this coming Saturday 16th Sep from 4.30 to 6.30pm.
Its a sit-in protest meaning that we won’t have any speakers for the event with no stage and no microphone speaker system. You can however bring along your placards to show your displeasure with the incoming government-appointed Presidency.
If you feel dissatisfied with the recent events surrounding the controversial PE, this is the time to show up and be counted. You can continue to be a keyboard warrior quietly firing away online but the time to step up is NOW!
Fear has crippled you all this while you are burnt up inside and its time to unleash that frustration by showing up with like-minded Singaporeans together as ONE voice.
People dropping by are encouraged to bring a mat and sit down silently on the park as a sign of protest against the PE. You can drop by anytime between 4.30 to 6.30pm or leave anytime of course. If you can join us for the sit-in silent protest for the whole 2 hours it will be great!
If you bring food and water along do be mindful not to litter the place.
Do wear black so we are united as ONE heart and people regardless of race and religion.
See you soon Singaporeans – Malays, Indians, Chinese and Eurasians are all welcomed!”
