Exploit the poor and disadvantaged.

The government's statement civil advocacy groups are exploiting the case "for their own political purposes" in the "guise of protecting vulnerable foreign workers".

If advocacy groups are exploiting the bus drivers, by getting their voices heard, then shame on them!

To be fair, grassroots should not be helping the needy as well. The poor are made to attend events,  lineup to go on stage to collect one bag of food worth less than $20 and made to shake hands with a Minister. They must also participate in photos and give interviews to tell reporters about their poverty and how grateful they are to the grassroots and CDCs.

How is this not exploiting them for publicity?

Some of them want to use you, some of them want to be used by you.
Some of them want to abuse you, some of them want to be abused.

1stly, if you want to use a quote, give credit to the source. eg song nsme "Sweet Dreams" written by ......etc etc. dont just put someone else's words in. that's plagiarism. 2ndly, yr point is valid and raises a good question - can we find out who exactly is making the poor do this? Generalizations will not help. some investigative action will. Dr R G Eli.
