Following an eventful 2006 that saw democracy advocates take the initiative to conduct several activities to advance the cause of democracy in Singapore, another workshop in the Empower Singaporeans Seminar Series will be held on 28 January 2007, Sunday.
This day-long seminar will build on the momentum started in previous years. It is tailored for the Singaporean who yearns justice and democracy, but doesn't know how to go about working constructively towards it.
The seminar, starting at 9 am and ending at 6 pm, will feature lectures, interactive discussions, debates, and role-playing on topics such as human rights, the development of democracy in Asia, and a history of repression in Singapore.
Participants will also learn about the principles and practice of Nonviolence, and how it can be applied to Singapore.
The activists at the 16 September rally at Hong Lim Park and 10 December Freedom Walk will be on hand to share their experiences. This is your chance to talk to them and learn how they overcame their fears.
Learn how you can break through your crippling sense of powerlessness, fear and isolation. Discover the courage trapped in your hearts and unlock the shackles that imprison your minds.
Don't just sit by and criticize, channel your energy and ideas into constructive action. Join us at the seminar.
The seminar is open to all Singaporeans. To attend, all you need to do is to send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Details of the seminar including the venue and programme will be sent to you if your registration is successful.
Please register early as places are limited.
