Far, far from being done

As long as Benjamin Lim and Dominique Lee cannot receive justice and attain apology and change from the police and the ministries, we are not done.

As long as the Opposition cannot win beyond half of the seats, we are not done.

As long as we cannot read a freely-published newspaper, watch an independent TV channel, or listen to an objective radio station, we are not done.

As long as Chee Soon Juan cannot stage a demonstration in front of Parliament House, we are not done.

As long as the Workers’ Party cannot hold a bicycle race at East Coast Park, we are not done.

As long as we cannot take back our CPF money, we are not done.

As long as we cannot criticize Lee Kuan Yew freely, and scrutinize his son openly, we are not done.

As long as our people remain seemingly harmonious but secretly divided and prejudicial, we are not done.

As long as almost everybody in this country cannot afford to dream, cannot afford to not read between the thin lines, or cannot afford to fall sick, we are not done.

As long as Singaporeans cannot feel like they are part of this country, like they are the masters and owners of this country, are respected, and can change this country for the better, we are not done.

I would be glad if by now, you know how far away we are from being done.
