Backchat: Hong Kong Independence Movement (RTHK Radio 3)

"Hong Kong Independence Movement"
RTHK Backchat (Radio 3)
10 April 2015
Hosts: Hugh Chiverton and Danny Gittings (PhD candidate)
On Friday Backchat tackles the issue of Hong Kong Independence. Its been in the news recently as some propose introducing legislation to outlaw advocacy of independence for our city. The Administration has turned that down, but under Article 23 we are bound at some point to legislate on secession. What then does that mean, and when should we do it? How real is support for independence, and how exactly would that be different from a high degree of autonomy?
