Thousands of people descended upon Hong Lim Park on June 7, 2014, to attend the “Return Our CPF” protest.
From 4pm to 7pm, several speakers took turns to take issue with the Central Provident Fund minimum sum scheme and criticised the lack of transparency in Singapore's pension system.
There was also plenty of anti-ruling party sloganeering.
The speakers included former presidential candidate Tan Kin Lian, Reform Party chief Kenneth Jeyaretnam, former Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) candidate Vincent Wijeysingha, and blogger Roy Ngerng, who is currently involved in a defamation suit by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
For those of you who weren't there, that was pretty much all that went down.
And then some.
1. The crowd at Hong Lim park was big, but not massively epic
According to one of the rally organisers, Han Hui Hui, there were 6,000 people in attendance.
But this figure seems iffy as the crowd appears to be far fewer than the 4,000 people who attended the Population White Paper protest in February last year.

"Don't boo them. Because they too have CPF!"
