Suppressing dissent in Singapore: No private screening of uncensored films

On May 17, 2008, the Singapore authority stopped the private screening of "One Nation Under Lee," an uncensored film, organized by the Singapore Democratic Party (SDP), an opposition party.

In this age of social media and citizen journalism on the Internet, we get to witness close-up the law in action, as never before possible, and form our own opinion.

"One Nation Under Lee", the film that might threaten the ruling party's grip on power, is on YouTube.
