From Martyn See’s blog:

“Political space has opened substantially. In 2004, political activities conducted indoors also became exempt from permits.”

2nd Home Affairs Minister K. Shanmugam, quoted by Straits Times, Apr 14 2009

Despite the unforseen cancellation of the previous venue, I hereby announce that the Operation Spectrum open forum will proceed . It will now be held at 2pm, 28th June (Sunday) at Quality Hotel, off Balestier Road.

I state with a fair amount of confidence that there will no police intervention this time. Reason being that I’ve just found out that Bestway Building, the previous intended venue, is actually a Government-owned building. No an excuse for the clampdown but still, our Singapore Police Force should be commended for their constant vigilance and efficiency. By their (over)reactions, they have lend an added touch of notoriety (and publicity) to this event. Thank you.

At this point, I reiterate – all views are welcomed in this forum, including the government’s. I am encouraging open, transparent discussions, not cloak-and-dagger operations, especially by men who are supposed to be public servants.
