Message from Maruah, which is organising a peace vigil for Aung San Syu Kyi on May 31.

This is a peaceful rally to ask as many people in Singapore to give two hours of their time to show support to a courageous women – Daw Aung Sung Suu Kyi – who has been placed under house arrest for almost two decades and now is held in a formidable prison.

We, as organizers, will be upset for you if we, had in any way, not advised supporters to mind themselves so that we all stay within the law while asking that Daw Aung Sung Suu Kyi be released.

So please do not be alarmed by this advisory or be put off by it. Stay true to your heart’s desire of wanting to show support, please come and, if you are a foreigner especially, be just mindful of supporting without breaking any local laws.

Theme: YELLOW! Vigil with speeches and light candles as a symbol of asking for her to be set free.

*Come dressed in yellow*

称“比生孩子还痛” 许文远吁乐龄群体预防跌倒

交通部长兼基础建设统筹部长许文远形容,他左手的骨折非常疼痛。他周日(24日)出席在三巴旺集选区举办的2019妇女节活动说道,“我从来没有经历过如此疼痛!医生告诉我说这类骨折,比生孩子还痛,我说我不清楚,因为没生过。但是我可以告诉你,真的很痛。” 许文远今年在一次下床要前往厕所时,不幸跌伤了。三巴旺集选区举办的活动是他自跌伤病假后,首次亮相,他更以自己的意外为借镜,呼吁人民正视预防跌倒的重要性。 尚在病假中的许文远表示,意外发生在半夜要起床上厕所时。他当时咳嗽得很厉害。“我太太睡得很沉,我是很好的丈夫,所以不想吵醒她。” 他回忆道,他当时不应该起身得太仓促,但他跌倒时发出的巨响吵醒了全家人,并叫了救伤车。医生认为许文远是起身时过猛导致昏眩,所以才会跌倒。 许文远随后在新加坡中央医院住院两星期,进行了三个小时的骨折医疗手术。现在他左手手臂里装了钛金片,用于固定骨头,到处走动都必须绑着固定带。“老骨头需要时间重新修复,我还需要一个月时间就好了。” 许文远感谢当地居民的祝福,并呼吁他们以他的意外为借镜,从中学习。 傅丽珊有意参政 上述妇女节活动,是由早前行动党三巴旺支部副主席傅丽珊筹办,她也是樟宜机场集团第五航空楼策划组副总裁,被坊间揣测很大可能在来届大选代表行动党出战。 自《海峡时报》报导中显示,傅丽珊和许文远在2019年妇女节庆祝活动上一起亮相。傅丽珊最近表示,如果有机会,她愿意参政。她现在一直活跃于基层,筹划和参与三巴旺集选区的活动。 她也告知媒体,目前每周都到接见选民活动帮忙,并参与家访。她认为,一些女性选民可能更愿意和女性议员分享讨论相关妇女课题。
