Representative Council, Wentworth Building, University of Sydney, NSW 2006
one of the last Undemocratic bastions in Southeast Asia:
against deputy Prime Minister,
General LEE Hsien Loong
demonstration will be held at the front entrance of the Regents Hotel (199
George St. Circular Quay) on Monday, 5 Ih June 2000 at 6.30pm.
General LEE Hsien Loong, the eldest son of longtime Singapore dictator Lee Kuan
Yew who also coincidentally holds the position
of Deputy Prime Minister in the island state, will be a keynote speaker at a
ABN-AMRO function that evening.
protesters will be demanding:
. A stop to all repressive action directed against opposition political parties
2. A stop to all commercial links with the repressive
Burmese military regime. To date
Singapore is the largest foreign investor in Burma.
3. To open all elements with regards to the usage of public monies to parliament. For example, the Singapore Government Investment Corporation (SGIC) holds in excess of Aus$ 100 billion of public monies and has always been unaccountable to parliament or the public. Brigadier General Lee, his 77 year old father and a closed circle of political cronies and friends sit on its board.
