I will start my 1st prison term on Aug 11

Aug 10 2010

Dear friends, fellow artists and activists from Singapore and the world over, I will be in prison for 2 weeks starting from tomorrow, August 11.

I've been arrested and put in lock-up for single days a few times, but this will be my first actual prison term. Here is a BBC article which mentions my views on it near the end, but with incorrect dates: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-pacific-10849942

We will resume correspondence upon my release. Take care and keep the faith.

you only do what is right, what is peaceful and what is just.

imprisonment does not in any way prove you are not right, not peaceful and not just.

Never confuse Justice with the Law. Because in Singapore, you have more of the second and less of the first.

Enjoy the free food and accomodation. Probably cost less than rent and sky high property prices.

This is what we call "Anyanya". To fix up opponents with illegal laws so that they become ineligible to contest elections. They are nothing but cowards, gutless and I believe the lowest form of life to exist in this world.

I salute your warrior spirit, bro. Perhaps your 12 days a a guest of the Lee Dynasty will provide some badly needed rest.

Hi Seelan,

Admired your guts and spirit that not many Singaporeans have.

Your zeal and belief in the cause have motivated to do more for my country.

Sometimes, we back off when we heard of who and who got arrested for doing too much.

Let us do what we think is right and good for our country.

As this post is most likely monitored, I wont speak more - keep up the good work!

You have become our model citizen!
