Mr M. Ravi, Animal Rights and Human Rights Activist
TITLE OF PAPER: Protecting the Voiceless in Court

Mr Chan Ying-Kit, Passionate Animal Lover and Critic
TITLE OF PAPER: Animal Rights as Event and Myth in Singapore

The event hopes to answer questions like:

  • You witness some stray animals being led away and taken in a van possibly to be culled – how can you prevent this?
  • You see some birds being fed poison – what can you do?
  • Do you as an individual or does an interested group or animal charity have a formal voice to act on behalf of these animals? Or to question the rationale of such activities before a court?
  • Cat ownership is not allowed in a HDB flat – does this violate your rights?

Mr Ravi said, “if you are passionate about animals, if answers to these questions interest you and if you want to hear more about animal rights in Singapore, this is a must-attend event for you.”
