It’s not everyday that you get President Bush visiting our tiny country, and it just so happens that it’s not everyday you see people actually protesting in Singapore. Thanks to Agagooga (and Elia Diodati), we get to see what happened at the National University of Singapore (NUS) when Bush dropped by to give his speech. Apparently someone organized a heckling session outside the NUS Cultural Center via FaceBook (smartmobbing!) which looked something like this:
Name: Bush Heckling
Tagline: Because he’s here, and we’re not allowed to!
Type: Causes – Protest
Time and Place
Date: Thursday, November 16, 2006
Time: 2:30pm – 8:00pm
Venue: University Cultural Center (Yusof Ishak House is probably the closest we can get)
Bush is giving a speech at NUS on Thursday at the UCC and I dont particularly want him here…and I’m sure neither do you.
Come join the fun as we try to avoid getting arrested by the Singapore Police for protesting, shot by the Secret Service for insulting “the man” and expelled for breaking some school rule that probably prohibits gatherings of more than 1.5 people for anything other than accademic reasons.
If you’re wondering what’s going on in the photo above, the female student gets questioned by the police for her perculiar umbrella. If you can’t make out what it says, you can find more photos, as well as videos, over at Agagooga’s blog. Heck, you can play the “Spot-the-ISD agents” game while you’re at it!
