Burmese Activist marked Human Rights day with mini-exhibition


This was held by Burmese activists at Peninsular Plaza today.

Arts articles and photos were their exhibits, and Singaporeans went to show support.

The plaza's management was not very happy and their manager & security guards went to raise issue and demanded them to remove exhibits that were stuck on the wall for display. No major incident, but Burmese were told that in future they need to apply for permission from the plaza's management. :-)

Isn't it Draconian even within a private building? If it was a buffet or official opening with lunch spread & bouquets be placed outside of their shop, does that require management approval then? This is just the political messages that caused over-reaction of the management isn't it?
