法政匯思就朱凱廸在2019年鄉郊代表選舉中被剝奪資格之聲明(The Progressive Lawyers Group’s Statement on the Disqualification of Chu Hoi Dick in the 2019 Rural Ordinary Election)

法政匯思就2019年鄉郊代表選舉中,選舉主任裁定朱凱廸的候選人提名無效之決定(「該決定」)感到震怒。該決定侵犯了朱凱廸及選民的權利,亦沒有任何法律基礎。實際上,此舉形同政治審查。(The Progressive Lawyers Group ("PLG") is outraged by the Decision (the "Decision") made by a Returning Officer that Chu Hoi Dick Eddie ("Chu") is not validly nominated as a candidate in the 2019 Rural Ordinary Election. The Decision violates the rights of Chu and of voters, and lacks proper legal basis. In effect, it constitutes political censorship.)

你會用結社言論自由的古董花樽去打香港民族黨這隻昆蟲嗎?

有很多人會說他不支持港獨,不認同香港民族黨的主張,政府打壓港獨團體有什麼問題,主張港獨不就是把國家搞分裂嗎?這基於維護國家安全為目的,做法似乎很合理,保安局局長李家超口口聲聲地說香港是法治的社會,他的決定是根據社團條例作出的,那麼不就是依法治港嗎?

An all-out war of words: Where does free speech start and end in Hong Kong?

Progressive Lawyer Group member Jason Y. Ng talks about the free speech controversies at The Chinese University of Hong Kong 香港中文大學 - CUHK and The Education University of Hong Kong, in an op-ed for the Hong Kong Free Press HKFP (views are his own).
"Activists fighting for marriage equality or access to medical marijuana should be free to wave rainbow flags or hand out leaflets explaining the health benefits of cannabis. Neither same-sex marriage nor marijuana use is legally permissible, but that’s precisely the point of free speech: to debate whether they should be."
