五區公投運動

Yang Wen-Li: “I want to save the seeds of democracy for the bad times. To make the empire recognise us, we must fight and beat them. However, the citizens consider this idea meaningless, and the possiblility of backing off is increasing.”

to save the seeds of democracy we must fight and beat the empire, but the citizens think the idea meaningless...

It is the best of time, it is the worst of time.

In the darkest days of Hong Kong democracy, when everything seems hopeless, the HKSAR-developer conglomerate dominating all state affairs with no checks or balances, backed by the totalitarian and all powerful communist party of China,
when the youth find no future,
when the establishment, with the legislature, executive and mass media in their hands, and the judiciary threatened, do everything they can to silent dissent,

there is a new light: through optical fibres,
citizens communicate directly to legislators in manners, urgency and audacity yet unseen;
legislators talk directly and unfiltered to the camera of the people;
questions in the streets become questions in the chamber;
decisions and actions in the chamber are instantly discussed by the citizen.

Hong Kong has broken new grounds in and given new meanings to Representative Democracy.

《信報》:公民黨及社民連將於下周舉行記者會,公布五區公投運動辭職名單及二十七日千人造勢大會詳情。

多位行政會議成員昨天對變相公投大潑冷水,曾為民主派成員的張炳良更批評公投不能解決政制問題。不過,民主黨創黨主席李柱銘已構思以非政黨形式支持變相公投運動,他強調,必須令市民明白,今次是為民主而投票。

據了解,兩黨組成的聯合委員會,下周會舉行記者會,屆時召集人余若薇將公布辭職名單,以及二十七日千人造勢大會的細節。委員會兩位副發言人社民連陶君行及公民黨陳家洛昨早出席電台節目時亦暗示,辭職名單已呼之欲出,只是首階段擬先集中在變相公投議題。

換言之,社民連三子——主席黃毓民(九西區)、梁國雄(新東區)及陳偉業(新西區)將全部辭職,餘下的九龍東及港島區,分別由公民黨副主席梁家傑及陳淑莊負責。陳家洛透露,造勢晚會當晚,會一併公布如果補選投票率不足五成,兩黨對政改的投票取態。
