是咁的。關於有人提議訂製「觀察 Polite」黑色背心示威遊行時著，已經有高手做咗相關嘅法律分析，不過我噚氣少少都係講多次 — 唔好試！
Once dubbed "Asia's Finest", Hong Kong's police are fighting allegations of using excessive violence against protesters, their headquarters besieged twice in the last week as calls for an independent inquiry into their tactics swell.
HONG KONG—Protesters poured into this city’s streets for a second Sunday despite the suspension of a controversial bill to expand the government’s extradition powers, as a week of demonstrations appeared to be spiraling into a broader political movement.
Hong Kong (AFP) - Hong Kong's embattled leader on Saturday suspended a hugely divisive bill that would allow extraditions to China, in a major climbdown following unprecedented unrest, but protesters vowed to press ahead with a mass Sunday rally.
The odds were long but the million people who turned out last Sunday—and the tens of thousands who circled government offices—did it.

美國執業律師、法政匯思發言人Jason Y. Ng表示，根據美國證監會條文，管理層需要披露其工作經驗、職能、在機構外的主要商業活動等，很多美國上市的中國國有企業，都沒有公開自己的共產黨員身份。除非可以證明其身份對公司的生意營運、財政狀況有重大影響，否則如共產黨員身份與公司生意無關，便毋須硬性規定披露。他認為要證明馬雲為公司所作的決定，是受其黨員身份影響，例如電郵、電話錄音，證明國家有干預阿里巴巴，「不過到其時，阿里巴巴所要面對的問題，是比無披露馬雲身份更嚴重」。
Today marks the twenty-eighth anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre, known more delicately in this part of the world as the June 4th Incident. Members of the so-called ‘June 4th Generation’—people born in, or before, the 1980s who feel a deep connection with the thousands of student protesters murdered that summer—have always felt a sense of duty toward them: to vindicate their death, and until then, ensure that the younger generations do not forget what happened.
