Zhang Dejiang, Chairman of the National People’s Congress and Rao Geping, Chinese representative member of the Basic Law Committee have recently and respectively made important speeches in relation to the 20th anniversary of the implementation of the Basic Law. The Progressive Lawyers Group (“PLG”) is deeply disturbed by some of the contents of these speeches, believing that they are in contradiction to the “One Country, Two Systems” framework stipulated by the Basic Law.

【法政匯絲】下一站 不要西環

相信大部份市民與我一樣,非政治人物,非公職人員,亦非顯赫權貴,但我們並非無作為。香港的政治有時確實像選舉論壇一樣不堪入目,之前有參選者被選舉主任「篩走」,現在有候選人哭著「被」要求退選,烏煙瘴氣。但是,我們對香港本身、對社會、對周邊營營役役的香港人,還是關心的。作為當中一份子,面對如此風氣、如此格局,我們更不能心灰意冷。有些事情我們可能改變不了,但我們盡市民的基本責任,於九月四日星期天投票,對只向西環叩頭的「建制派」候選人說不,這樣做,總比尸位素餐要強。
