Tuesday is the official talks between both sides.
May I remind everyone here that without students like bill gates, Zuckerman, steve jobs, twitter founders and all the others, we won't have the convenience of IT gadgets and platforms. We probably be still writing pen pals letters and snail mailing around the world.
In fact, those names I just mentioned, are not even students, some were school DROPOUTS.
Students are idealistic and they are the best at it.
U waiting for some rich old farts to invent something revolutionary or change the govt system? U can wait long long.
And students definitely know what they r doing. They are fighting for their own future, which we won't be ard to see.
In this forum I can dare to say that I'm not against these protests.
If any one actually know the hardships of the common HK ppl, u will understand why there are democracy protests now.

When steve had his vision of Apple, alot of ppl thought he's a crazy SOB and ousted him out of Apple. At that time, everyone thought his.foolishness was in wrong direction.
I saw some student protest leaders sitting down with the govt officials and talk abt what they want.
I respect these students for their guts.
I can bet with anyone here that none of us, who are supposed to be matured professionals, can be prepared to sit down with PM Lee and ministers and talk abt policies.
I can judge, why not. It is my right to have to my own opinions.
Having guts is something to be respected? The terrorists that hijacked the planes and crashed them into the WTC had guts too.
How come no one protested nor talked to govt officials when the Brits were still ruling HK and NEVER ever once gave them any voting rights?

I just came back from HK for a week.
Didn't see any action except from TV nightly news.
this week is the one month anniversary of the protest.
