Spread this around : from the recent demonstration against over-population

Spread this around.

Seemingly minor issue but important enough to correct possible misconceptions.

The above picture you see on the link above shows a guy dressed up in 'full punk gear', whom interestingly has never been around at actual punk shows, events and the like, holding a 'Singapore For Singaporeans' placard.

This can be misconstrued as punks supporting blind nationalism and xenophobia. 

Please be informed that this does not represent the punk community at large, we oppose blind nationalism, racism, xenophobia and other forms of bigotry in principle, though admittedly many of us may also say things that seem politically incorrect from time to time, we urge COMMON SENSE and INTELLIGENCE to read between the lines.

Giving the benefit of doubt the message 'Singapore For Singaporeans' could mean something else that isnt particularly xenophobic or nationalist, but its simply more sensible to prevent a mistake than correcting one.

Love // Peace // Defiance.
