Protest against Burmese junta in Singapore Starbucks

The four million residents of Singapore lack a basic human right: freedom of assembly. It's against the law for Singaporeans to gather in groups of 5 or more without a permit.

Back in November 2007, in the wake of the junta's bloody crackdown, while the Southeast Asian nations' summit* was taking place in Singapore, some Burmese residents of Singapore invented a new really creative way to hold a protest under the circumstances.
