Headline: In episode 8 of "The Show with PJ Thum", PJ warned about the devastating consequences of POFMA if it were deployed in an election. Sadly, this has come to pass. POFMA has been used a staggering 17 times in July during the election period, far more than any other month prior (and it's only 5 July!), and chiefly against opposition politicians, political parties, and independent media (see http://pofmaed.com/explainer-what-is-pofma/). Watch this clip, and then watch episode 8.5 (https://youtu.be/rF1eaCItE-g) and episode 9 (https://youtu.be/f6Qu8rpfqME) of "The Show" for more information.

Headline: Singapore’s convoluted electoral system is the product of many different forces and political events since 1948. In particular, it was heavily transformed in the 1980s. It has been described as “neither free nor fair”. How did we get to this and how does the system actually work today?

Check out these links to our explainers and a brief history of Singaporean elections.

Headline: Discrimination is a major issue in Singapore. Every society grapples with bias and discrimination, and Singapore is an ordinary society susceptible to ordinary ills, not a magically immune unicorn. Minorities often experienced discrimination linked to their race, national origin, language, ancestry, citizenship, religion, creed, or SOGIESC (sexual orientation, gender identity & expression, and sex characteristics). How do we end all systemic and casual discrimination in Singapore? How do we protect the rights of all minorities?

To begin, let’s start with an explainer!

Headline: How do we end the systemic and structural discrimination that has led to drastically increased inequality? How do we create a fair society that gives opportunity to all? The issues of poverty and inequality - and by extension, social welfare - were of great importance to our Singaporean community. Here are articles, videos, and podcasts that we commissioned on these topics.

How do we have respectful, constructive conversations/actions when the PAP censors/bans everything they disagree with? Why do they treat us like infants? Our Singaporean community chose the PAP’s destructive politics as the second most important issue facing Singapore. Here are articles, videos, and podcasts that we commissioned on this topic.

Headline: During the Singapore General Election, you might hear the terms pragmatism or partisanship thrown around. But what do these concepts actually mean? With our comic explainers we hope to make abstract concepts like pragmatism, tolerance and politics clear for people. Check out these links to our comic explainers:

What is politics? We associate politics with electoral politics, but in essence politics is about how we organise ourselves as a society. It’s inescapable!

Who has power and authority in a society? How is authority established? This explainer breaks it down https://buff.ly/3ik2WoE

Why is it important to protect minorities? In a multi-racial country like Singapore, it’s important to understand this https://buff.ly/3ibyUmO

Related to that is our explainer on Toleration. How do we live with those who are different from us?

Headline: New Naratif’s Singapore community declared that the most important issue facing Singapore was a lack of transparency and accountability in government. How do we increase transparency and accountability from elected officials/ civil servants, and work to prevent corruption and abuses of power? How do we increase independent scrutiny of officials and expenditure? Here’s some articles, videos, and podcasts we published on this issue and more broadly on freedom of expression in Singapore.
