Six civil society players gathered yesterday afternoon to protest the impending Goods and Services Tax (GST) hike that was announced as part of Budget 2018 last week.

The speakers – Tan Kin Lian, Goh Meng Seng, Osman Sulaiman, Prabu Ramachandran, Lim Tean and Damanhuri Abas – took to the Speakers’ Corner at Hong Lim Park to air their frustrations with this year’s budget speech.

Event organiser, noted activist Gilbert Goh had said on Facebook ahead of the protest: “We may not be able to change the mind of the authorities not to raise GST but at least we do something together as Singaporeans rather than pounding away at our keyboards in frustration alone. It is time to stand up Singaporeans and be counted.”
