A group of Myanmar citizens gather along Singapore’s prime Orchard Road to protest against Myanmar Prime Minister Thein Sein attending the 13th Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit together with Southeas Asian leaders 20 November 2007. Rights abuses in Myanmar and ASEAN meeting have triggered rare series of protests during this week’s summit of Asian leaders in Singapore but the development does not signal an easing of the city-state’s tight restrictions on public assembly, activists said, where gathering of five or more people requires a police permit. Few Singaporeans dare take to the streets like their counterparts in Bangkok, Jakarta or Manila where noisy rallies are common.
