Toa Payoh Graffiti
Expressing political ideals is sensitive and certainly, the veil of anonymity protects the identity of the oppressed to express freedom of speech. Though I feel that it has been unbecoming for citizens to resort to malicious means to voice their discontentment towards the ruling party, it takes two to clap. Especially with the recent spate of events and their significance, this might prompt a needed structural insight between the government and its citizens.
