Thoughts : Politics (Protests)

Protesting: Speaking Out for the Oppressed: This is a simple reflection of a Singaporean student in Australia. In Singapore, of course, one is not allowed to protest on the streets. That makes for a politically apathetic population, but that’s another story… This was written in 2002 for the newsletter (Temasek Times) of the Singapore Student’s Association (SSA) of my University in Australia.

The Culture of Dissent: Activism 101: This is a slightly similar – though mostly different – article from the one above. This was written first but because it was too long to fit the one page limit of the newsletter, I wrote the above one. (2002)

Labor Day Rally in Sydney: Description of a protest rally I attended in 2002 – and also short reflections on why we protest.
