On 13 May 2014 I was invited to attend the lunch commemorating the May 13 Student Movement of 1954 – a movement that became an important part of the struggle against colonialism in Singapore.
I brought my granddad as a date, and we had a great time feasting and hearing the stories of the activists who had fought so hard for human rights and civil liberties in Singapore – and who had paid the price for their dissent.
I wrote about the event, the movement, politics and activism in Singapore today. Thanks to Medium I’ve managed to incorporate images beautifully into the piece. Click below to read it!
