From the positive feedback that we received of our pre-election rally held a few weeks ago, the Party has decided to go ahead with Rally2. Many who attended our first rally told us that they would like to see another similar event held as it helped to keep the opposition’s message alive for the elections. We agree.
The SDP Pre-Election Rally2 will take place on 13 Nov 10 (Sat). The objective of this rally remains unchanged: To reach out and get our message across to the electorate. The difference is that it will be bigger and better.
The programme will be even more exciting and we will be introducing new speakers. Most importantly we will be launching our Alternative Economic Programme at this rally which will be the centre-piece of our campaign in the coming general elections. The Programme contrasts the Singapore Democrats’ economic vision with the PAP’s.
Rally2 will also continue to emphasize on the youth in Singapore. Never have we had so many young people show such an interest in what we’re doing. To ensure that we engage them at this rally the Young Democrats will come up with an even more exciting segment.
The new found enthusiasm among the youth wanting to see political change is infectious within the SDP and we want it to spread all around Singapore. The creative energy is beginning to show itself in the things that we do and a new SDP is slowly but surely emerging in Singapore’s politics.
And yes, there’ll be lots of food. So come hungry, let’s have plenty of rights with our rice and freedom with our fries.
There’ll also be lots of entertainment to keep everyone occupied. We’re planning activities for participants that will help us make even more prominent our campaign message. Who says that politics need to be dour and left only to politicians? Democracy must be a people’s activity and we want Sinaporeans to play an active role in the rally.
As for the logistical preparations, we took away with us some aspects of our organisation from our first rally that we felt needed improvement. We will make up ground and organise an even better event, one that is worthy of your attendance and participation.
We are determined to live up to our creed of a competent political party where we constantly improve on what we are doing and where our best performance is always the next one.
But you know what is going to be the best part of the rally? Danny our Democracy Bear will be there! And you know that where Danny goes, candy follows. So mums and dads, bring the little ones along. Be there, meet Bear. It’s going to be an afternoon of lots of fun, tons of food, and one furry friend!
So lock down the date: 13 November 2010, Saturday, starting at 4 pm. See you!
