[Video Campaign] Free Amos Yee. Protect Our Children.

A 16-year-old Singaporean boy, Amos Yee, has been persecuted by the Singapore government for making a video to criticise the first prime minister of Singapore, Lee Kuan Yew.

Amos called him a “horrible man”.

Amos has been imprisoned for more than a month and is still awaiting sentencing. Details of his ill-treatment in prison has come to light after his lawyer, Alfred Dodwell, wrote a letter to the judge to highlight his plight.

However, instead of addressing the ill-treatment, the government’s lawyer, the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC), has instead asked Dodwell to take down the letter from his firm’s website, and to stop The Online Citizen from reporting about it as well.

I started a Facebook campaign two days ago to ask people to change their Facebook profile pictures to demand for the release of Amos.

More than 50 Facebook profiles have taken part in this campaign.

What is at stake is not just Amos but the future of our children.

Amos should not have been punished or persecuted for making a video. He has already done time in prison for more than a month. This is not only unnecessary but an abuse of his rights and his being.

We have to stop the government from persecuting a young child. If the government would willfully persecute one child, the lives of all our children will also be at stake.

We call on the Singapore Government to stop its persecution against Amos Yee.

Free Amos Yee. Protect Our Children.
