    Everyday Racism / Plastic Waste from Picnickers

    On Tuesday's Backchat, everyday racism. Have you experienced abuse or discrimination in Hong Kong because of your colour or nationality? Maybe its been on a small scale and not a matter for police or the authorities? Do you think racism is getting better or worse around town? The CE Carrie Lam proposed in the Policy Address taking the Discrimination Legislation Bill into the Legislative Council by year end, which will bring amendments to the Race Discrimination Ordinance. What changes should the government make?

    After 9:20, plastic waste generated by more than 70% of country park visitors, according to the latest green group's survey. Why are our picnics so plastic?

    Facilities for Foreign Domestic Helpers on their Days Off / World No Tobacco Day

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Jim Gould

    On Thursday's Backchat, we're talking about the opportunities available to domestic helpers on their days off, and public attitudes towards them. There's been a strong reaction to recent comments by New People's Party legislator Eunice Yung, who said helpers gathering in public places on Sundays caused inconvenience and hygiene problems. Helpers support groups called her comments racist and offensive. And later Ms Yung gave an apology, saying she hadn't meant to cause offence, but rather to highlight the lack of facilities available. So what to you think? Should more alternatives be provided to domestic helpers in terms of activities and meeting places? Should they be discouraged from gathering in Central on Sundays? Are they, and their contributions to Hong Kong's economy and society, given enough recognition? Leave a message here, or email us at backchat@rthk, or call us on 23388266. After 9.20, efforts to combat smoking.
