International Court of Human Rights

Dear Gilbert Goh of www.transitioning.org, Roy Ngerng Yi Ling, Han Hui Hui, and other political dissidents,

There are more than 5 million people in Singapore.

How many people in Singapore actually know that you are organizing protests at Hong Lim Park Speakers' Corner? How many people in Singapore actually attended your protests? Few hundreds maybe. How many percent is that of Singapore's population?

Sure, you can organize protests until the cows come home, but that's not going to change anything in Singapore. The People's Action Party (PAP) in Singapore is still going to win the General Elections in 2016, filling up most of the seats in Singapore's Parliament. The PAP will continue to be the ruling party every five years after that.

To effect change in Singapore, we need to have a new vision and open up a new front. We should start campaigning the United Nations to establish the International Court of Human Rights, which is long overdue. The establishment of the International Court of Human Rights will allow everybody in the world who have suffered at the hands of their governments to seek redress for their grievances.
