Because foreigners also have rights, be they tourists, temporary workers or resident foreigners. They are not slaves, and they have every right to go wherever and do whatever during their time off within the rules and laws of where they are. Just because you are a citizen of your country does not mean foreigners should give up their bus seats for you like what was expected of Rosa Parks. It's now the 21st century, and if Singapore wants to be a modern and advanced city/country, then Singaporeans should not act like they are still in the 1960s.

Then does it mean that you have the right to celebrate in the territory of other people's homes ?

The thing is, whatever it is , some Singaporeans are not happy with it, being a guest, isn't it a given to respect the comfort of the owner too ?

Others countries may be fine with it, that is their own problem.. Why must Singapore follow other countries ? If you are fine it it ok, but if you are not should i insist on it despite you are not comfortable with it ?

Why not you give me your address and i plan to celebrate my birthday at your place ?
Some people may be fine with it , then that's not an issue, but if the other party is not comfortable with it. it should be stopped.

Because that's trespassing and that is against the laws in most countries... That's your house, no one has the right to go there without your permission. However, if you see a group of people you do not like on Orchard Road, does not mean you can ask them to leave, just because you are a citizen and they are not. If they are not doing anything wrong there and if they have a permit, then like it or not, they are there. As a citizen, then do what you can do and vote for the party that will make that illegal.

SPF: no permit has been sought for the Philippines Independence Day Celebrations | The Real Singapore

no permit have been sought at yet. That is a reason why i say the Pinoys are acting as if they own our land..

You dont see the PRCs, Indians Americans and Brits being so .. assuming in other people's territories..

If you feel so strongly about this along with other Singaporeans, then go ahead. But the eventual decision on how this works out will have an impact on how Singapore is seen from outside. If the permit stipulates that they should limit the number of people, make sure traffic is not affected, not to be too loud, blah blah blah, it can be talked about. How the people opposing this is handling it so badly... it's only about as citizens of Singapore. People forget that these people are working for Singaporeans, the visas are issued by the Singaporean government and that they are working for the benefit of the Singaporean economy. And this is like a once in a year event.

Actually, there aren't any large celebrations in the Philippines for Independence Day. It's far from being the Fourth of July in the US or October 1 in China or even October 10 in Taiwan. And the fact that it's been moved to a Sunday as a more convenient way to celebrate there in Singapore just means they just want some kind of celebration and get together. I think Singaporeans are taking this matter more seriously than any Filipino.

Definitely. I don't even see how it affects them anyway. It's just plain intolerance.
