    What is the date?
    I think if this is going to affect the IMF, it is no good...

    U guyz can sit here and argue abt the constitution all day long or the 'kiasuism' of the Govt aft my post and on perceived 'police brutality', but if u are thinking of joining in, be prepared for the consequences which will be urs to bear.

    Yes, the Police would use all means necessary including firepower if such an event were to take place. And dun think that's "wayang" and the 'running dogz in blue' ain't gonna have the balls to carry it out. Talking big here is one thing, the experience of water cannons firing at u or the solid baton coming down on ur head to crack ya skull ain't a pleasant feeling.

    My genuine advice.
    Err... like i mentioned, not going there to demonstrate. Just interested to get some exclusive footage of this "protest"

    Below is my very broken translation:

    As the rallying party is passing through sensitve areas, this may affect security of the meeting (IMF i suppose).

    During the IMF/WB meet, police will be at high alert to protect the citizens and (IMF) meet participants. The authorities strictly prohibit groups rallying and protesting.

    Police would like to remind the public that Chee SJ's rally is illegal and public participating in the rally is also illegal.

    I think it's sensible to display something prominent "PHOTOGRAPHER" so that no one will touch you or obstruct your views.

    Den wad u expect police to say?

    "Erm, hello excuse me? Sorry har can u leave or not or I will whack u with this baton?" OR "All rioters stand on the left, all peaceful supporters stand on the right. We are going to hit the rioters now."

    3 standard warnings is all that the riot police will give.

    If in between the warnings, 1 bottle (they dun care if its plastic or not) fly, 1 rock fly, police will charge in immediately. As long as u are in there, they juz whack. Rioters, protesters, 'innocent supporters', whatever.

    If molotov cocktails fly and crowd charges back with parangs, u will see BULLETS FLY. Shoot-to-kill orders will come in and if u happen to be in the crowd and get killed, sorry, police will not be held responsible.

    Assuming if someone in the crowd possess a firearm and starts firing, Army will come in and dun blame the govt or the security forces if u're in there and the military starts letting loose all their arsenal.

    The final scenario is an assumption but if it degenerates to such an extent where police can't handle the job, soldiers will come in.

    U can always try them.

    Juz join in Chee's protest march, get a molotov cocktail on the standby (can be done up easily with nails and petrol) and when u see the police on guard position forming a barrier wall against the protest march group and after the 1st warning sound off, light & throw the molotov cocktail at the police and u will see if SPF can do their job or not.

    Siao la .... u watch too many tv shows ...
    This is Singapore and you know Singaporeans ..... all boh lampa type .... u see such scenarios in Singapore only in Riot police practices only la....
    anyway, i think there will be more plain clothes in the crowds more than the actual protesters ...
    If our Government also dont care a fack what the international ppl want us to do, what makes you think that they are worried about one educated fool? If the IMF and WOrld bank actually wanted us to allow protestors then they would have put that in as a pre-condition before appointing us as the host. Maybe they should appoint Taiwan or Hong Kong next time. All these are just one big Cinerama .... just make sure you have enough of pop corn and beer and enjoy the show ...

    sure a not? the best move i see police officer doing is "da bao" supper from hawker centre..hardly remember seeing any police officer patrolling the streets..unlike places like Hong Kong, those police officer do really command our respect..they were always on their foot patrolling the streets..and they give the kind vigiliant look..

    i mean IF, there is really a protest, and the protestors are rational..who do u think will win? but then its hard to stay rational when angered..

    TV show or not, I'm waiting for that 1 single bottle/rock to be thrown IF Chee decided to go ahead with this protest thing, with or without a police permit.

    How abt YOU go and try it and u tell me my 'sure or not' is a 'real or fake' one?

    Rationale? Well, protests, riots and demonstrations are all outlawed under Singapore law. U tell me abt rationale protestors vs 'potential police brutality' I'm not very sure.

    But 1 thing I can be very, very sure of, that if Chee stands out from his protest crowd and holler to the OC of the riot police, "U tell me which section of the law I had broken?" whilst the OC's giving his 3 standard warnings, u can be as sure as hell it will be ignored and he'll be the first to have his head broken.
