On Friday's Backchat: How have the anti-extradition protests changed Hong Kong? With “Lennon Wall” protest sites springing up all over town, and demonstrations planned in different parts of the New Territories, are we witnessing a change in the political climate? Is Hong Kong society becoming more polarized, as evidenced by the recent clashes between pro and anti-extradition bill protesters in Yau Tong? And what are the implications for November's District Council elections?

On Tuesday's Backchat, it's the 30th anniversary of the military crackdown on the student-led democracy movement in Beijing. Large crowds are expected to gather on Tuesday night for a candlelight vigil, as they have done every year since 1989, with Hong Kong remaining the only place in China to commemorate the hundreds, possibly thousands who are believed to have died in the Tiananmen massacre. It's thought the gathering could be given extra impetus this year by the extradition bill controversy. Thirty years on, while activists here continue to demand that the student movement be vindicated, the mainland government insists it was right to take the action that it did, with a prolonged period of stability and development resulting from it. What do you think?
