Singapore’s purge

It’s quite surprising that Filipino anti-IMF protesters were blocked from passing through Singapore’s Changi Airport in line with the island-city’s ban on demonstrations. Read the ordeal of the two Filipino activists here.

They were just passing by en route to Batam, an island in Indonesia where a simultaneuos protest summit will be held against the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) conference in Singapore.

Well, I can only sigh. We can’t expect much from Singapore about dissent. Could we?
