Operation Spectrum forum cancelled

Venue owners "under police investigation".

Bestway Properties, the owner of the venue, called me 20 minutes ago to apologise that they are canceling the event due to pressure from "police investigation".

Below is the follow up email.

Dear Martyn,

Due to the ongoing CID investigation, our company regret to inform you of the cancellation of the booking of Bestway Auditorium on 20th June 2009.

Regards,

Isabel

I eagerly await the CID to ring me up but I doubt it they want to make this public.

Ah well. Alternative venues? Any suggestions?

Guess they'll dare to open up on everything except these specific issues.. because they know they are very guilty.

You like a few good-for-nothing activists, trying to be hero. You are sick people trying to create mayhem like what had happened in Malaysia, in a multi-racial/religious society in Singapore.

What make you think that a meeting of this sort would create mayham? Hiding dirty linens under the ISA is good-for-something, if this meeting is good-for-nothing? How can the young electorates make informed choice at the ballot box if they are deprived of historical facts and instead immersed in propaganda? You either are brain-washed, choose to believe in myths, or are part of the establishment. While you are entitled to your beliefs, you must also respect other peoples to hold to their beliefs. Name calling is not a democratic behavior.

If Anon@11.03pm likes fairy tales and fears the truth so much, then he should choose ignorance by reading only 'Harry' Potter, and stay out of other reading materials including this blog.

Personally as a philosopher I would like to attack facts and not the person.

My question is why didn't Anon @11.03PM leave down your name? It's always easy to hide behind your computer at home I suppose.

I think it's a disgrace to Singapore that the authority cracks down on every little thing with regards to true history.
