Updates on politics, civil liberties and social justice in Singapore, straight to your inbox.

Why subscribe?

We, The Citizens is a curated newsletter that highlights developments in politics, civil liberties and social justice in Singapore—topics that have a real impact on Singaporeans (but we don’t often talk in-depth about) but aren’t usually reported in the foreign press, thus impacting that way people outside the country see us.

Or, as my mother puts it, “She reads the news for you.”

Stay up-to-date

Once you subscribe, you’ll get an update delivered straight to your inbox (usually) at 8am every Saturday morning, ready for you to peruse at leisure over your weekend.

It’s free!

I’m doing this newsletter as a hobby—which prompted a friend to ask, “Why do your hobbies look so much like your work?!”—so I’m offering it for free. I believe in the importance of delivering comprehensive yet digestible updates about Singapore to Singaporeans and non-Singaporeans alike, so I don’t want to cut off anyone’s access by asking for money.

Perhaps, if I ever provide something more than just this weekly round-up, I might charge a little bit for those extra things (just so I can afford more kaya toast and Milo to do them)… still mulling this over!
