I saw the Singapore Democratic Party leader Chee Soon Juan selling his party newspaper at a hawker centre.
I was having coffee when two men and a woman appeared, all in red polo shirts, carrying armloads of newspapers. The slender, youthful-looking bespectacled man in the centre was Dr Chee. He did not give out his name. I could recognize him from the photos I had seen in newspapers and on the internet.
He did not make any speeches or criticize the government, merely saying he knew people had problems with wages being cut and held up a copy of his newspaper, asking if anyone would like to buy.
He was studiously ignored by the people, who went on eating and drinking, though several fell silent while others lowered their voices.
