    Reopening of Civic Square - whether or not? / China launches its first home-built aircraft carrier

    On Thursday's Backchat, we're asking the question: Should the area known as Civic Square outside the Central Government Offices be reopened to the public? The East Wing forecourt of the government complex in Admiralty was a popular demonstration site until it was fenced off in July 2014. It was then stormed by student activists two months later, triggering the 79-day Occupy protests. The incoming Chief Executive, Carrie Lam, has said she’ll consider opening it up again, amid calls to do so from across the political spectrum. But CY Leung says it won’t happen during his term of office, which ends on June 30. What do you think? Could reopening the square be an important gesture of reconciliation in a divided society? Or would such a step raise unacceptable security concerns?  After 9.20: China launches its first home-built aircraft carrier. (8:30-9:30am, call in on 233 88 266, email backchat@rthk.hk or text 6393 5925)
