On today's Backchat, where do the protests stand now? There has been little or no violence for a while now, though large scale demonstrations are still planned. Has the movement run out of team, and if so, why? What will happen at CNY, and will the IPCC report make a difference? Is the change in thinking by the CE, and the change at the Liaison Office significant? How will policing change? Does the discontent linger, or has it dissipated? How will the new District Councils operate? 8:30-9:20 Ventus Lau, Hong Kong pro-democracy activist 8:30-9:00 Tommy Cheung, Former student leader and Yuen Long district councillor. 8:30-9:00 Linda Li Che-lan, Professor of Political Science, Department of Public Policy, City University of Hong Kong After 9.20, the US China Trade deal. 9:20--9:30 Mark Michelson. Chairman CEO Forum, IMA Asia
This May Day, a Backchat special wants to know if you share the Lantau Tomorrow Vision.
The Government has outlined the most ambitious plan in our history to build new islands connected by road and rail, a new central business district and housing for a million people. It’s estimated to cost more than 600 billion dollars in its first stage.
Critics say it’s overpriced and unnecessary. The Government says it will instil hope among Hong Kong people for economic progress and improved livelihoods.
We’ll be hearing from Government officials, and others, and we hope from you. Come along to the special Backchat programme live in our Kowloon Tong studios at 12 noon on Wednesday 1st May, and join the debate.
