I won’t sit round and wait for the government to decide how I should live, behave, work, and speak. Instead, I will continue my work in activism as well as my postings on this blog (especially with regards to human rights).

Nothing will change if all of us just sit around and wait for magic to happen.

Difficult you say? Haha well, did our government even try? PAP certainly doesn’t believe in human rights… just go through their speeches past and present and you will see.

Today it is a joke being played upon worker’s rights on May Day. Protestors want to allow illegal immigrants into the USA. Just think about this. We don’t have worker’s rights now for mine workers, oil rig workers, and we expect the illegal immigrants to be treated fairly? Right! They are slave labor, and misguided do gooders want more to come in to the slavery market for meat packers, piecework sweat shops of women and children, and of course harvest work. We needed slavery 150 years ago. Now we need illegal immigrants today. Great progress.
