On Monday's Backchat, who supports Hong Kong Independence? Many have recently condemned Independence activists, and those calling for separation from the Mainland. But the banners on campuses were placed anonymously, and it's not clear who, and how many are making these calls. Is the number as high as the 20% who voted for the localist camp in the last election? Is it as high as the 40% of young people in a survey who saw independence as their preferred option after 2047? Is support rising, or falling, and why has the issue flared up again now? Is it just a marginal view, or a real mass movement? Is it an excuse to introduce more restrictive legislation locally? Do media and official reaction make for more support? Call us with your thoughts on 23388266 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. After 9.20, would you live in a container home?

On Wednesday's Backchat, we're looking at the challenges facing the new Chief Executive, Carrie Lam, in finding new land for housing. Will her plans to establish a task force to review reclamation and develop brownfield sites work? What do you think should be the top priorities on land and housing, and how could the new administration increase housing supply? After 9.20, are children's aspirations different from what their parents expect? (8:30-9:30am, call in on 233 88 266, or email email@example.com )
