Singapore news today | FOREIGN ENTITIES APPEAL TO SUPPORT PINK DOT, OUTRIGHTLY REJECTED BY AUTHORITIES

A group of foreign companies such as Facebook, Google and Uber wrote in to Singapore authorities to ask for permission to support this year’s Pink Dot but were unfortunately rejected.

In their letter, the group of companies expressed support for inclusivity, diversity and in creating a safe space for their employees to work in. They understand Singapore has its own regulations and already suggested not to have their names listed or recognised as official sponsors. They also assured that no foreign representatives will speak at the event. However, our authorities still flat out rejected their application to support the event.

Instead of explaining why they rejected the application, the authorities reiterated that foreign entities must abide by our laws and not fund or support events that concern our domestic matters.

Do you think this is necessary to make Pink Dot free from “foreign intervention”?
