Synopsis

“Death may be inevitable, but the death of the Singapore cemetery is not.”— Kevin Tan (Professor of Law, NUS, Conservationist & Music Critic)

If you want to voice your dissent against government’s decision, what can you do without taking to the street or breaking the law?

Hong Kong is often referred to as the twin city of Singapore. When facing similar political challenges, how do we establish a legitimate platform for policy discourse and civil action?

Back in 2010, the Singapore government decided to exhume a chunk of Bukit Brown Cemetery and to build a major highway through it. Kevin Tan, who has spent over 20 years advocating for political awareness and heritage conservation, helped to convince the authorities to fund a thorough documentation of the graves. He was joined by a group of conservationists and the campaign on Bukit Brown has grown into a movement ever since.

Can Hong Kong get some insights from him?

This dialogue is to explore ways to communicate legitimate concerns of public policies; also touch on heritage conservation, enjoyment of music and Singaporean life-style.
