Singapore needs Human Rights Activists too! – Learning from Human Rights Defenders Lecture Series
November 6, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm
Speaker: Hui Hui
Singapore is known for its economic success. But how many people are aware of the human rights situation in Singapore? Singapore is the only country in this world where the government doesn’t spend a single penny on public housing, healthcare and pensions.
Han Hui Hui organised the largest protest in the 21st century in Singapore which attracted more than 6,000 Singaporeans when she was 22. She will talk about the human rights situation in Singapore and the various methods she has used to highlight the abuse of power and human rights violations in Singapore.
