Singaporean activist summoned by police over solidarity actions at Speakers’ Corner for Israel-Palestine victims in November

In a separate development on Wednesday, Singapore joined 152 other nations in advocating for an urgent humanitarian ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.

The investigation is understood to be centred around two incidents where Mr Goh was seen in his social media Instagram posts, showing him holding up a sign at Speakers’ Corner in Hong Lim Park, expressing his solidarity with the victims of the Israel-Palestine conflict.

On 18 Oct, the police and National Parks Board issued a joint statement prohibiting events and public assemblies related to the volatile Israel-Palestine conflict, citing substantial public safety and security concerns amidst escalating international tensions.

Defying authorities restrictions, Goh reportedly shared a monochromatic image on Instagram on 19 October, capturing himself at Speakers’ Corner, displaying a placard with a message that read, “Peace not war. Israel stop the killing at Gaza! Hamas release all the hostages!”

She should go to Israel instead of protesting here. tsk tsk tsk

This 20 yr old woman better mind her own business and concentrate her studies.

Obviously this 20 yr woman does not know: 1) Israel did not started the war 2) Palestine did not own any land nor is it a country 3) There is no place for terrorism 4) Hamas wanted, not the radicals and supporters telling the whole war to stop war. 5) God promised land to Abraham and his descendants, etc Israel to Ishmael, etc etc 6) Iran terrorist leaders are funding Hamas to kill people in the name of religion of peace 7) Israel let Palestinians to stay in the Gaza strip, but they chose to built tunnels for terrorists, who… Read more »

The SPF
The PAP Administration
The SG Justice System

All ARE an Institution of the 3rd World Operating like Big Time Charlie’s of SG. How. Why.

Are THEY FULLY independent, are they SLAVES to PAP – Keppel Bribery Corruption seaks Volumes of PAP ethics, so is the AG punishment of Liew M Leong, and additionally, how the Ridout Bungalow Rental investigations CONCLUDED is a 2023 BIG JOKE AWARD.

Look at this VERY VERY CLEARLY – NOT the SPF is doing right. Because they ARE BEHOLDEN to BLIND POLITICAL Beliefs passed DOWN, ORDERED to by their EQUALLY blind Millionaire Pseudo Masters. The CLEAR as CRYSTAL line Drawn is, 1. Is the girl a political protestor, 2. How the Police verified she is a Politician – bcz the PAP DEMANDED Sheegaporean involved in Politics MUST join a Political Party and be a politician, 3. Is the girl acting on her POLITICAL BELIEFS, or her SENSE of HUMAN MISERY, no matter colour or ideology? The SPF is A CAVEMAN institution MUCH… Read more »

The twenty years old woman just put two placards in front of the embassy of Israel still can be considered as protesting by the police from Singapore Police Force,the mind of police from Singapore Police Force might be unsound. There’s a lot of people selling tissues on the underground path towards Ang Mo Kio MRT also can consider as protesting by the police from Singapore Police Force

cmon leh. why they so afraid of a bunch of paper? this is coming from a zionist guy like me.
it’s not they actually marched around and attacked jews like what happened in UK and USA.

Kudos to the young girl. She has shown that her humanity is still intact unlike the millions of the resident population who seem to be like dead men walking. Too much concrete removes our humanness. As the police have looked the other way for Liew Mun Wai who should have been charged in the Parti Liyani”s case. They should do the same here and also for Gilbert Goh. No one has suffered.

No doubt the situation in Gaza region is TERRIBLE now, and our well-wishes to all those caught in the sufferings. But we should first prioritize putting our own house in order. Can’t treat our own siblings/citizens well, yet want to kapo what our neighbors are doing – is that in our DNA?

If she’s not a dissident or opposition figure, then chances are she will be lightly punished.

If she’s a foreigner, then lagi better, she may just get a “verbal warning” and let off.

Wasted.

Since she is willing to risk being charged for this & that
she could have spoke up against the Government here.

Charity begins at home.

Must be one of the dumb idiots (70%)
