SINGAPORE: An online movement calling the public to stage a rally at Raffles Place in support of the "Occupy Wall Street" protests in New York fell through on Saturday. The worldwide protests are aimed at galvanising 99 percent of people to stand up against the super-wealthy one percent. The Singapore movement had 3,000 followers on Facebook, with 75 indicating they would attend. The event page asked the public to gather at Raffles Place MRT from 2pm with placards and musical instruments and to "make as much noise as possible". However, it ended in a no-show. Raffles Place - a bustling place on weekdays - was its usual sleepy self on Saturday afternoon, with only a handful of tourists and a few local residents milling around the area. Singapore police had earlier urged the public not to be misled and participate in what it termed would be an unlawful activity.
