Video of Roy’s Speech at #FreeMyInternet Protest at Hong Lim Park Against Internet Censorship

The government had announced a new “licensing framework” to license “online news sites” and subject them to rules such as a $50,000 performance bond and a take down of articles within 24 hours, at the discretion of the Media Development Authority (MDA).

A group of online websites and bloggers protested against the move with a blackout of more than 170 websites, which culminated with a protest last Saturday.

The Heart Truths has also spoken out against Internet censorship in Singapore. It is not in the interest of Singaporeans to have our access to information curbed. This will prevent us from knowing what is going on in our country and to play an active role in our country.

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    But think about if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this site could certainly be
    one of the most beneficial in its niche. Superb blog!
