Amos Yee to Give Public Talk at Harvard

Amos Yee is set to give his first ever public talk at Harvard [theindependent.sg]. Yee is a teenager from Singapore who has recently been granted political asylum in the US. He was in trouble with the Singaporean regime for repeatedly criticizing the country's late founder, Lee Kuan Yew. His treatment has been marginally better in the US. Although he was granted asylum by the US back in March, he was held in US jail until late September where he ran in to difficulties for his ongoing criticism of Islam. Currently, he is banned from Faecebook [ibtimes.sg] for alleged, unspecified "community standards" violations. His videos are available on YouTube.
