SINGAPORE: Large crowds gathered at Speakers' Corner in Hong Lim Park for two separate events held on Wednesday's May Day public holiday.
In the morning, a mass picnic was held to forge stronger community ties, while in the afternoon, the second protest against the government's Population White Paper took place.
The mass picnic was organised by the group Stand Up For Our Singapore.
It also saw Singaporeans from various backgrounds participating in games to know each another better.
The protest in the afternoon followed on the heels of the first one staged in February.
The organizer of the event, Gilbert Goh of Transitioning.org, estimated the crowd size reached 5,000 and said he hopes to organise similar events on Labour Day every year. - CNA/xq/sf
