(Your lead is focused and your point is well elucidated. In your lead, you quoted Lai as saying that "he doubted about Tai and his team for their ability to include people of various political views in their discussions" but your explanation “since some of the leaders are rather extreme and loyal to their own political stance” didn't appear until the last but second paragraph. That is no way to write a news story. Readers nowadays are mostly impatient and don't expect them to read till the end to find out why.)

Oscar Lai Man-Lok, one of the initiators of Scholarism, agreed with the intentions and objectives of the political movement “Occupy Central”, which was organized by Benny Tai-Yiu-Ting, the organizer. However, he doubted about Tai and his team for their ability to include people of various political views in their discussions.


Lai agreed Tai’s concept of occupying Central, as this non-violent political protest may lead to amendments in constitutions, in accordance to current social and political situations of Hong Kong. But he question about the technique of Tai and his team in running the political movement.


He also emphasized that Scholarism is still at the phase of discussing whether to join Tai and his team of occupying Central, and would disclose to the media if any decisions made.


Lai mentioned Tai had asked members of Scholarism to acquire parents’ approval before joining Occupy Central, since most of the students aged under 18. He regarded parental consent as redundant. “History has proved that students’ engagement in political movements need not parents’ approval,” said Lai.


Lai explained again the term “civil disobedience”, which has been defined by Benny Tai Yiu-Ting last Tuesday.


Same as Tai, Lai refer such protest as a kind of peaceful, non-violent act that people reflecting their wills of refusing to follow inappropriate, unjust and unrighteous law or governmental ordinance.


Lai added such definition of civil disobedience is originated from an American Author Henry David Thoreau, and is based on intuitive knowledge, religion and truth, of human beings, which indeed, supersede the law.


Lai stressed such peaceful protest against current law is not equivalent to criminals as the act in itself is not for the sake of personal interests but interests of the public and their next generations. Participants, especially the organizers would disclose their intention and objectives publicly before hand.


Moreover, their non-violent movement would only focus on amendments or editing of certain articles that do not suit current local situations, rather than against the whole Hong Kong law system.


Lai agreed the political movement “Occupy Central” as a significant way of civil disobedience, as this peaceful protest could arouse public’s concern towards the regulations, hence, may discuss and eager to understand more.


He even quoted claims from Cardinal Joseph Zen Ze-kiun “we are willing to be prisoned, just prepare enough space for us.” He believed moral appeal could have rallied sympathy from the mass.


But he doubted Benny Tai and his team in ability to allow people with different political views to engage in the discussion of Occupy Central, since some of the leaders are rather extreme and loyal to their own political stance.


Lai emphasized that Scholarism is still at the phase of discussion whether to join Occupy Central. He said they (organizers of Scholarism) will disclose to the media if they have made the decision.
