The Singapore government wishes to build a highway the size of CTE (8 lane – 48 m wide by 2.2 km) through Bukit Brown. The process of exhumation and highway planning will start as early as March 2012. The result will be the losing of 5000 graves, destroying the forest, bio-diversity, global warming and other environmental impacts like the risk of flooding.
We are asking everyone concerned with the fate of Singapore to step forward to lend your voice to this campaign. Your voice can help the various authorities understand the importance of Bukit Brown and the highway is not right. Your voice can change their minds and save Bukit Brown.
Join the thousands to SAVE Bukit Brown 100%. Say No to the Highway.
Here is how you use and lend your voice for the campaign:
1) Lend your voice by putting your name down for our open letter to the government to save Bukit Brown 100%.
This is the most direct method. We aim to collect as many names as we can to show that Bukit Brown is important and destruction should be the last option. Please help to spread the word! Click on [Action > Sign Our Open Letter] for more details.
