Another one of the moneyed elite in Hong Kong who just don't get it!

Incredibly horrendous choice of analogy--likening HK voters to freed American slaves who had to wait 107 years for their legally granted voting rights to be guaranteed.

Must make time to listen to this: lmost 1 1/2 hours, though.

"Hong Kong’s ruling class will eventually lose the hearts and minds of the people, and even the ability to govern, because they have lost a generation of youth."

Chilling confirmation of just how little freedom there is in traditional media in HK. I think now that people's eyes are opened about how censored most of the press is in HK, no one under 40 will ever rely on it again. The ability of traditional corporate media to shape public opinion in HK may be at an end (which should be Beijing's worse nightmare). This is why the Party has erected The Great Firewall in China, to keep people from getting all kinds of information about what is going on in China (and the world at large) so that the minds of the people can be brainwashed to support the government at all costs.

Some amazing photographic work of the protests in Mongkok. Once you click on this picture, be sure and click through all of the ones posted. This is a stunning photographic record of history in the making. The photographer is very good at capturing the human aspect of the protest movement and its various players.

Traffic lights in Causeway Bay.

HKTV has just released the trailer of their drama, "選戰" (literally translated as "The Election"), which involves the elements of universal suffrage, civil nomination and civil disobedience.

HKTV's application for free TV license was turned down by the government in October 2013 and that decision triggered hundred thousands of citizens to protest outside the Gov't HQ. HKTV now decided to launch their broadcast through the Internet on 19 Nov (same day as TVB's anniversary).
