    Arrests of Democrats; teenage bullying

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Ada Wong

    On Tuesday’s Backchat, the arrests of Democrats, and teenage bullying.

    Legislator Ted Hui was on Monday arrested and charged over a rowdy meeting in Legco last May. Seven of his pro-democracy colleagues had been arrested the day before.
    What do you think of the arrests? Charges were made under the Legco Ordinance - is that significant? Why were some arrested but not others? Are these actually political prisoners? Is the administration desperate to silence any opposition among legislators? What sort of future does Legco have?
    From 9:15am-9:30am, we’ll be discussing recent bullying cases in schools, especially those involving girls - and what schools and parents could do.
