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.

On Friday's Backchat, the US-China trade war. Panasonic , a Japanese Corporation has announced it will suspend component shipments to Huawei, following in the footsteps of Google and others. This is the latest escalation in a broadening conflict, which has spread beyond tarfiffs to embargos, threats of boycotts and more. Should recent actions by the U.S. in the South China Sea be seen as part of the same strategy? Or American attitudes to events in Hong Kong? Do you agree with comments that there is a real threat of a Cold War, - a battle for global economic, technological and military dominance? Will China fight back, and if so, how? Where will the rest of the world stand in such a conflict?
After 9.20, should Robin's Nest be recognized as country park?
