Petition to PM Lee From Burmese

I have just read an article on the CNA. The report mentioned that a group of Myanmar nationals went to the Istana this morning to hand in a petition to our Prime Minister Lee. The man collected nearly six hundred signatures from Myanmar community in Singapore.

The content of the letter as disclosed by CNA urged our PM to take stern action against the Myanmar crackdown. It also calls for the involvement of the international community and the release of all political prisoners. The petition also states that the people of Myanmar are depending on external support to help stop the violence.

As compare to this one which happen less than a day ago, the above article comes in a very interesting timing.
