Charity event cancelled after police say it needs permit for 'politicising a social cause'

SINGAPORE - A fundraiser for cardboard collectors to be held on Saturday (Dec 14) has been cancelled, said its organisers on Friday evening. The five-hour event was to have involved at least four opposition parties, said non-profit group Happy People Helping People in a Facebook post. The reason for the cancellation is that «the police did not want us to do this without a permit», the group added. Earlier on Friday, the police had said the event would require a permit as its organisers had politicised a social cause. It pointed out in its statement that the event - titled A Mile In Their Shoes - 'Leaders of Singapore' Fundraiser Special - had been assessed to be a public assembly and, hence, would need a permit under the Public Order Act. This is because «the event goes beyond simply helping cardboard collectors, and appears to be politicising a social cause», it added. The group had said in a Facebook post on Thursday that representatives from four political parties would take part in the fundraiser: the Singapore Democratic Party, Progress Singapore Party, Reform Party and the People's Power Party.
