Please do not call us ‘your brothers’

Minister of Manpower Tan See Leng

The following is a loosely translated version of an open letter that is currently being widely circulated on WeChat, supposedly from the foreign workers at Westlite Dormitory, purportedly in response to the incident mentioned by Lim Tean here and here.

Open letter to Minister of Manpower Tan See Leng:

Please do not call us “your brothers”

If we are truly your brothers why do you surround us with riot squad and policemen?

If we are truly your brothers why do you send in armored vehicles to surround our work camps?

If we are truly your brothers why do you allow the work camp bosses to treat us so?

Do you not know that the food we eat is infested with worms, flies and maggots?

Do you not know that the Covid-19 infected and not infected are all huddled together in the same room waiting to get infected and maybe die if help does not arrive in time?

Do you not know Minister that some of us have taken to sleeping on the cold hard floor in corridors to try to escape from the contagion?

Minister we are not your brothers.

We are only your work slaves!

There are two thousand of us here, a quarter of whom have been infected?

Why do you send in armored vehicles instead of ambulances?

Why did you not send in doctors and nurses. Instead you send in soldiers and policemen?

Truly Minister we are not your brothers because brothers do not treat each other like criminals.

We are here to work to build your industries your infrastructure and your homes.

You must not forget we are workers and not work slaves. The least you can do is to accord us some respect and treat us decently as human beings.

 

Workers from Westlite Dormitory.

Original forwarded message in Chinese below:

致:新加坡人力部部长陈思龙

请不要称我们为“你的兄弟”

如果我们真的是你的兄弟,你为什么要用防暴队和警察包围我们?

如果我们真的是你的兄弟,你为什么派装甲车来包围我们的宿舍楼?

如果我们真的是你的兄弟,你为什么允许宿舍的老板这样对待我们?

难道你不知道我们吃的食物里都滋生了蠕虫、苍蝇和蛆吗?

难道你不知道受感染的和还没受感染的都挤在同一个房间里等待被感染,如果沒及的被送院处理都可能会死的?

你不知道部长,我们中的一些人已经习惯睡在走廊里冰冷的硬地板上以避免被感染。

部长 我们不是你的兄弟。

我们只是你的工作奴隶!

我们这里有两千人,四分之一被感染了。

你为什么派装甲车而不是救护车?

你为什么不派医生和护士来。 相反的,你却派士兵和警察來?

真正[sic]的部长,我们不是您的兄弟,因为兄弟不会被像罪犯一样的对待。

我们在这里致力于建设您们的工业和基础设施和您们的家园。

你一定不要忘记我们是工人,而不是的工作奴隶。 你至少能做的就是给我们一些尊重,把我们当作人一样体面地对待。

 

Westlite宿舍的工人
14.10.21

 

According to information gathered by our techie, the complaints against the dorm operators and employees are as follows:

1. 1/4 of the Westlite Jalan Tukang dormitory’s 2,000 residents had tested positive for Covid-19.
2. the process of isolating infected residents was inadequate.
3. there was a shortage of medical supplies and that only critically ill workers were taken from the dormitory to receive medical attention.
4. the rooms were not disinfected and that they often found worms, flies and strands of hair in their food.
5. people were down with fever and positive cases were everywhere.

Currently, these workers have reportedly been living in a prison environment for months, shut off from the community, except to and fro from their workplace.

Beijing has taken note of this incident and has instructed its Embassy in Singapore to look into this.

“We will continue to track developments, maintain communication with the Singapore side, and protect the health and safety of our workers,” a spokeswoman for the China Embassy was quoted as saying.

Their condition has been widely shared on WeChat and many Chinese are furious and up in arms with some calling for donations to help their allegedly “ill-treated” countryman, while others have urged the authorities to bring their “brothers” and countryman home.

  • What we have here is one rookie minister trying to play fast and loose hoping to placate the affected workers, even without fully understanding the gravity of what “兄弟” means in China.

    In China, when someone calls you “兄弟”, it is not a joking matter and most take it very seriously. “兄弟” in China means it is a very serious relationship as if it were a family member, not anyhow call for fun one. “兄弟” means if I am broke, you give me money or feed me, “兄弟” means if I kenna bully, you whack the other party for me, “兄弟” means if I have no place to stay, you take me in. “兄弟” (aka 战友) in the army and police even means they will take a bullet for you, if they have to.

    “兄弟” certainly do not send armored vehicles and riot police to surround a “兄弟”‘s house, just because they have some grievances. Whoever called the police or ordered that ought to be slapped. If it were only the police, still understandable, but riot squad?

    If the rookie minister had actually wanted to placate the angry workers, he should just simply apologise and then make things right, instead of paying lip service and using “兄弟” to try to ‘connect’ with them. But then, it is never in the LEEders’ dictionary the word “sorry”, is it?

    That having said, I would be very careful if I were MOM, the dorm operators and employers. Unlike Sinkies who are basically selfish and ballessly “you die your business”, the PRC Chinese are very united. I have seen an entire village surround court buildings and police posts, an entire village surround a driver because he knocked down a cow and I have also witnessed home buyers surround a developer’s office when they did not receive their title deeds on time, just to name a few.

    If this matter is not handled correctly and amicably, once a group of them has decided to call it quits and return home, most if not all of them would likely follow suit. If that is their wish, then I have no doubt the China Embassy in Sinkieland would arrange for chartered flights to send them home.

    Even though most of them have debts due to the agents that brought them to Sinkieland, but since their plight is already now widely shared on Wechat (making it a matter of national interest), it is highly possible that their “brothers, sisters and countryman” back home will crowdfund them to pay off the debts. I have witnessed so many a time when a million is raised within an hour for a newborn to undergo an operation. The local authorities may even get involved and support them in whatever way they can. Who knows, public pressure may even force the agents to write off the debts or risk becoming public enemy number 1.

    I cannot imagine where the Sinkie employers would stand if they lose 2000 of them overnight. There is also the possibility that no PRC workers would want to come work in Sinkieland in the near future, especially with its “living with the virus” policy.

    My friendly advice for that rookie, sincerity and practicality is what counts, unlike daft Sinkies, lip services and motherhood statements do not work on these PRC Chinese. They are far more intelligent and practical then the 61% Sinkies. Maybe he should have just shut up in the 1st place, since the complaints were against the dorm operators and employees, not the gahment.

    IMHO, the workers are not asking for too much, just basic dignity and to be treated as ordinary human beings, is that too much?

    “I have seen an entire village surround court buildings and police posts, an entire village surround a driver because he knocked down a cow and I have also witnessed home buyers surround a developer’s office when they did not receive their title deeds on time, just to name a few.”

    Response: The above sounds to me like “mob rule” which would justify calling in the “riot squad” before situation gets out of control (e.g. Little India) and people get hurt. Nevertheless, it is inhumane to subject these foreign worker to such deplorable conditions. There seems to be no improvement since the last episode.

    Tech: The police are always at the scene to maintain law and order (but they won’t resort to force), so violent incidents are very very rare. Then someone with authority would surface and promise this promise that, then the crowd leaves. Not that I support their actions, I merely mention it to highlight the fact that they are very united.

    As usual PAP loves to talk loads of cock with nothing to show for it. We are still seeing thousands of cases daily and the daily deaths are hovering between 5 and 11 as well.

  • @Harder Truths

    Unlike Sinkies, China leaders have a very long memory span, remember the Terax incident? 君子报仇10年不晚, as the saying goes.

    The fact that the LEEders call in the riot squad even before trying to understand and engage the PRC workers already mean that they don’t give a shit and no give face to China liao, you think the Chinese leaders will ever forget this?

    And no need to even threaten war or sanctions lar, just pull out their Chinese Embassy the LEEders already garang gabok liao lor, having nightmares dunno what coming next.

    Politics very complicated and dirty one, certainly not a game for rookies. And to think that the current LEEders in Sinkieland can even hold up to the Chinese leaders is simply daydreaming. The leaders in PRC will have the rookies in Sinkieland for breakfast, if they wanted to.

    You are talking about Rookie and Professionals, what is there to compare, where got the need to use war and sanctions one? lol

    BTW, the latest on the incident is that the food caterer only got a “REMINDER” and not contract terminated or sacked for serving contaminated food. The employers must surely be treating the PRC workers as dirt lor, wonder if the caterer also related to the PAPies or not, not even a slap on the wrist!

    Even the dorm operators also got off scot-free, not even a reprimand from MOM, they must be very well connected.

In a recent attack carried out at the northwest of the country, more than 10 PRC engineers were killed and many more seriously injured. Up till date, 铁杆兄弟 still the 铁杆兄弟!

    PRC leadership is of quality much, much higher than some of the fear mongers here try to portray them to be! The incident at the worker’s dorm will go down as a good example of how the two countries can work together to solve problem.

  • If he calls you bro be careful:

    “The political problem of mankind is to combine three things: economic efficiency, social justice and individual liberty… ”Practical” men who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influence, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist (wannabe). Madmen in authority, who hear voices in the air, are distilling their frenzy from some academic scribbler (or megalomaniac) of a few years back.”

    You academic cronies can’t make fat profits from levying unjustifiable taxes upon personnel!…. you’ve been killing businesses and sucking marrow out of the grinding bones of hard labor!

  • What a fiasco?:

    The post above by TRE Editorial gives an impression that the open letter to Sinkiland manpower minister Tan Si Leng was originally in mandarin by Chinese workers housed at westlite Jalan tukang dormitory who were the party affected by the recent dorm incident.

    Now, it has come to light that it is in fact done by a Bangladeshi migrant worker zakir hossain khokan. The letter by him is in English originally. The mandarin is the translated version.

    Mr zakir posted the open letter in his face book at “ amrakajona zakir”.

    What a fiasco if everyone reading the post in this forum believe that the letter was originally in mandarin by the affected Chinese workers, and the English version is the translated one!

  • @What a fiasco

    Thank you for the info, the mandarin version did indeed appear on WeChat. If you read the post carefully, it is not entirely wrong in facts:

    The following is a loosely translated version of an open letter that is currently being widely circulated on WeChat, supposedly from the foreign workers at Westlite Dormitory,

    The post did not say 100% it is from the Chinese workers at Westlite, just “supposedly”, hence it is not confirmed.

    Now that you mentioned it, “Bangladeshi migrant worker zakir hossain khokan”, he may be also a worker housed at Westlite, possible? Besides, we also cannot confirm or deny that the post was originally written by him.

    What we do know, however, is that the reported open letter does indeed exists, and is widely circulated on WeChat and other social media.

    It does, however, since it is in Chinese, have a tendency to give an impression that it was written by the Chinese workers, which according to you, is not. Even I thought that it was written by the Chinese workers. lol

    Haha. Didnt ‘Dear Writer’ suspect it doesnt sounds like China’s 普通話.

    Sometimes funny also. All these pro China fans always watch CGTV or whatever China TV
    programs, they should be familiar with how PRCs speak.
    Watching their singing programs, our local artists JJ, Tanya, Stephanie, ….versus prcs artists , difference in speaking is pretty distinguished.
    Nor are the way their articles are written.

    Another Copyright infringement. Need to copy a Bangladesh worker article.

  • Singaporeans R Free Riders:

    I lick cum blowjob my eunuchs and my great grandmaster of the infamous PAP – Pandemic Asshole Party.

    I did nothing else.
    But only to repeat every motherhood statement and rhetoric issued from the edicts by the emperor without clothes of the forbidden city.

    I am purposely intended to be incapable of general debate or to appreciate factual and truthful criticisms because my tongue was cut off by a Chasity Belt worn by my great grandmaster when giving him pleasure in my job.

    As I cannot wag my tongue now since I have already lost it,  but will instead waggle my tail like a loyal puppy for him.

    In all my postings on this TRE platform, you will notice I copied and pasted whatever feaces that pooed from the forbidden city.

    My objective in coming here is never about debating but to inflick anger in you with my frivolous silly remarks.

    I will echo, agitate, frustrate and rile up TRE readers with those feaces and repeat this activity in any article.

    Especially with articles referencing to ROC President Dr Tsai Ing Wen, CCP President Xi JinPing and Democratic Ang Moh Tua Kee Americunts.
    Yes it pained my Ass when these are surfaced !!

    So dear READERS, if you are clever enough, you should just totally ignore all of my copy and paste feaces.
    Don’t even try to thumb me down or attempt to counter reply my posts.

    My frank advice to Tre Techie and others to not engage me.

    This is the one BIGGEST MISTAKE you can ever make.

    Each time when you respond to my post, I will know that you have read my feaces. The more responses I get the happier I’ll be because my readership increases and you are frustrated and riled.

    If you just leave the hell of me alone then you be alright !
    PAP blowjobbers like me will then get insulted, humiliated and failed if I cannot get a response from any of you.

    DO YOU UNDERSTAND ??

    This is a minds game on psychology.

    YOU OPPIE READERS ARE STUPID FOOLS IF YOU EVER RESPOND TO ANY OF MY POSTS.

    IN DOING SO, YOU TAKE MY BAIT TO SERVE MY PAPIGS’ PROPAGANDA.

    THINK

    PAP SUCKERS please print/distribute/share my post.

  • Greed is deepladen:

    The letter is inapporpriately sent.
    It should be sent to their national media. Why?
    Many PRCs n Taiwaneses have commented how wonderful, great n talented Leeism esp in dealing with Covid 19 n how they have been wonderfully govern Singapore n turn it into an amazing heaven with lots of $$$$ to be picked up. Housing is so cheap thhat they new immigrants could afford to buy their own houses.
    The two sets of info r sent to the FGPAPic Cupboard of Cockroaches, the high praise one to Emperor while the grumpy one to one of his talented eunuchs n like the old Chinese dynasty, perfect bootlicking CBs of today SIN.
    Now the Chinese Embassy has got hold of the letter but one wonder whether they r smothered with the jialiaobi culture n not serving their people just like their hosts. As the Chinese dpsays The blamck birds r the same black everywhere!
    Presumably the PRCs have no ideas about democracy n communism cladding over the seper greeds. Like the wuya blackbird, they r the same everywhere. Like the Chinese, white Shakespear has long realized that life is a stage except Singaporeans has a singlish expression WAYANG meaning compliance to Cotton Sheep Super greed ACCOUNTABILITY n Indianee’s garbagy justification of Conflict of interests with wkayangy career success.

    Well LKY was honest at least once to daft sinkies before global media n daft indeed sinkies took it n still taking it pants down. US now has provided beyond shred of doubts that US leadership meant get screwed n remained screwed which Sinkies have been done in with LeNepotism which is. Intolerable with FGLe as the latest evidence rule succession should be dynastical n not nepotical like the Tang Lee of yesteryear with Sian wu Mun tragedy.

    Well history repeats itself once the populace loses its guaard ad absurdom.

    Brother won’t sue another brother.
    It is our Dear PM Lee Hsien Loong’s command!
    If you are not brother, you will get sued and/or charged, imprisoned for not being able to pay the fine. Maybe the food in the prison is better than your dorm food, want to taste it?

  • why hide behind pofma?:

    ONLY guilt needs shady cover and barbaric protection suggesting incapability to justify and defend and worse self humilation and admission of cowardice to admit error and poor ability to think through. This is yet another evidence adding on to cotton sheep and the rubbish on rationalizing self degradation and self dishonor re claiming zero accountability aka irresponsibility aka unfit for the position and power. Such conduct deserves self resignation else despicable n shameless and as the old sage of all civilizations refer as lesser than pigs and dogs and as R de N describing his former President that CROOKS have more morals!

    SIN Seniors r saddened n lamenting over the drastic decline of a wonderful nation from dedication n honor to nepotic babarism n finally to worse than colonialism cum gangsterism of yesteryears, perhaps worse with illegals evilly legalized! As the old sage cautions turn back n it’s land. So politicians in power n CBs: Would u Turn back n it’s land?
