The Singapore Unity Project (SUP), comprising active civil society organizations and individuals, will be commemorating International Human Rights Day at Speakers’ Corner on 10 December 2011 from 3 to 8pm.

Celebrated annually around the world, the International Human Rights Day marks the historical adoption and proclamation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948. This is a rain or shine event and members of the public are warmly invited to join us in commemorating this day.

The event will be featuring the first ever outdoor Singapore Really Really Free Market (SRRFM), art installations and performances by various artists. In order to raise awareness and funds, participating civil society groups will be setting up stalls to promote their causes and finally, a joint civil society statement to be released on that day.

So come meet us, experience the SRRFM, find out more about what you can do to promote human rights in Singapore and share with us your opinions about our causes and commemorate this historical day with us!

Dear Patriot,

I am Singaporean and so are my fellow colleagues who are working on trying to achieve our goals in the pursuit of a more humane society.

To be honest, there was a time when few people stood up for the rights of Singaporeans but the number has increased.

I disagree with you that just because most Singaporeans dare not (or do not know how to begin to) fight for individual and citizen rights, we shouldn’t talk about it. In fact we should, in order to educate the general public about UDHR, about issues pertaining to individual and citizen rights etc. We shouldn’t give up just because the majority chooses to do nothing at all.
