About the Project

WHAT: Silent Candlelight Rally – people will be given electric candles to form a ribbon image on the Padang
WHERE: National Museum of Singapore
WHEN: Aug 23 2016, 6.30pm to 8.00pm

This is a ground-up initiative organised by Silent No More, a private Facebook group, is made up of People’s Action Party (PAP) supporters who counter negative comments about the party online. 150 of its more than 5,000 members organise and volunteer to help out at a candlelight rally at the National Museum of Singapore on March 23, the day Mr Lee died. Volunteers will hand out electric candlelights to passers-by who will be asked to fill the Padang, where hundreds of thousands of people had queued for hours a year ago to pay their last respects to Mr Lee at Parliament House.
