短評:關於青年新政及香港民族黨年宵攤位被取消一事 (Short Commentary in relation to the Termination of the Stalls of Youngspiration and the Hong Kong National Party in the Lunar New Year Fair)

青年新政及香港民族黨於2017 年 1 月17 日及 18日,分別接獲食物環境衛生署(下稱「署方」)書面通知其維多利亞公園年宵攤位的特許協議已被署方單方面終止(下稱「通知」)。如果署方沒有確實的證據,證明於年宵攤位售賣或擺放的貨品/物品,以及進行的活動有可能危及公共秩序及安全;或證明持相反意見者,確實會作出危及公共秩序及安全的行為,署方的決定難免引起公眾質疑,並視之為政治打壓,實屬不智。

Wilson Leung spoke at China Human Rights Lawyers Concern Group press conference

Wilson Leung, the newly elected International Liaison Officer of the Progressive Lawyers Group, spoke at a press conference given by China Human Rights Lawyers Concern Group for the Day of the Endangered Lawyer. Wilson explained why Hong Kong lawyers should care about human rights lawyers in China: not only there is a moral duty to support our colleagues who protect the rule of law, it is also about preserving our own livelihood - the weaker the rule of law, the less the need for lawyers.
