The protesters arriving at Parliament House while the media take pictures
Gathering in front of Parliament House
Arranging the grocery items which symbolise the rash of price increases and the rising cost of living which Singaporeans have had to put up with.
Addressing the media. The second photo shows the cameraman from the local pro-government news media, Channel News Asia (CNA). Frankly, I don’t know why they bother to record what’s happening because they will either show a few seconds of what went on along with a bias report OR nothing at all.
Family, friends and supporters standing under the shade near the group.
These four photos show plainclothes policemen video recording. The first and second photos are quite obvious. In the third, the two chaps on the right are policemen. And in the fourth, its the two guys away from the crowd.
Gathered together for a group photo.
Yap Kheng Ho aka Uncle Yap, in a blue cap and red T-shirt, a supporter of the SDP, video recording while the plainclothes policemen video record him and the rest of the group.
Protest placards arrive. And there’s CNA again as you can see in the fourth photo. Sheesh.
Police officers approach the group and tell them to disperse saying that its illegal. While CASE gets away with it. Sheesh…and double sheesh!
The protesters listen to the police officers but continue to peacefully walk followed by the media, family, friends, supporters, etc, etc.
They are again told to stop and disperse.
Protesters crossing the road.
They are stopped again by the police in front of Funan shopping mall. The two guys on the extreme right are from CNA (yep them again!) and the two next to them are the police.
These 8 photos show the police surrounding the peaceful protesters before making the arrests (and that’s putting it mildly!).
Dragged away into waiting police vans.
People outside Funan watching. The chap carrying the placards away is a policeman.
Forcefully removed and dragged away into police vans with the eyes of the people and the media on them.
