不要太驚慌,因理在你們手中

早上四時許就起床(英國時間),因掛念著那些仍留守遮打道,靜坐抗議的朋友。從臉書得知警方開始清場,並拘捕了五百多人,其中有我的同事、學生、朋友、同行者 …。在臉書,我寫下-「不要太驚慌,因理在你們手中。」 按當下法例,理絕不在靜坐抗議的朋友手中,因為警方不但理直氣壯以參與「未經批准集結」和「對公眾地方造成阻礙」等理由拘捕他們,更以其… 詳閱

論這次7.1佔中之警民衝突

Bilibala
關於這次7.1佔中 單從清場行動而言,on live 睇左三個半鐘,對警方既專業同克制表現,我想講thank you. 值得我敬重同多謝各前線人員既勞苦. (again, 傷手傷腳係正常衝突會發生,所以我唔覺得所有人都吹水屈,但目測認會警方不是特登同已盡最大努力,我想已經值讚) 站在個人立場和信念,我仍然支持學生和平表達意見權利. 就算阻街幾日,在歐美罷工示威上十日plus是司空見… 詳閱

再論港式候派

一,引言 去年我撰寫了兩篇文章[1]回應鄧紹光以尤達/候活士觀點對佔中行動有所保留,當事人毫無學術討論誠意[2],令我本已打算不再淌這些渾水,然而,基於尤達/候活士觀點出發的言論,卻越來越流行,有用來談新聞自由、家庭價值、六四、腐敗政權等,彷如顯學,我便覺得有需要平衡一下,期望普羅信徒接觸尤達/候活士觀點時會有多些思考角度,不要盲目追捧時… 詳閱
