【8th October, 2013 Leung Nga Wing】One of the organisers of “Occupying Central” campaign, Benny Tai Yiu-ting, denied the social movement as a threatening bomb, and added that the only weapon that he had is discussion and negotiation.


In a university seminar, Benny Tai shared his missions and views on “Occupying Central”. He said the issue has raised many disputes and controversies among Hong Kongers. But he noted that the launch of “Occupying Central” campaign is not for creating a crisis, rather it is to solve the conflicts occurred.


“The aim of this campaign is to solve conflicts between different parties. We hope people with varied opinions can change their positions so as to achieve a consensus towards the launch of universal suffrage in Hong Kong.” Tai said different position held by various persons and groups is the culprit of dispute and conflict occurred in the society. Thus, he suggested solving conflicts via discussion and negotiation.


He also restated the peaceful nature of “Occupying Central” and said, “Some people seem to think that we are as violent and threatening as the terrorists, and even doubt that I carry certain harmful weapons. In fact, the only weapon I have is discussion and negotiation.”


Tai said the moderates and radicals among pan-democrats have already solved their disputes on the launch of universal suffrage in early time. He perceived this as an act to show the general public the importance of discussion and negotiation.


Tai confessed that the operation of “Occupying Central” campaign is complicated, but he still chose to continue such social movement. He said “You need to show that you are not challenging or confronting the ruling authorities; rather you need to show that you are willing to discuss the issue with them.”


Considering the possibility of civil disobedience to occur during “Occupying Central”, Tai said there is a condition for such thing to happen. “Unless we have tried all the legal and feasible means to strike for universal suffrage and it failed, or else civil disobedience would not happen.”


He further noted that the most current and important task for “Occupying Central” campaigners is to reach a common consensus towards universal suffrage among Hong Kongers. “We need to come up with a commonly-agreed proposal towards universal suffrage, and ensure the universal suffrage launched in Hong Kong reaches international standards.”


He urged every Hong Kongers to join the “Occupying Central” public discussion forum so as to share their views towards universal suffrage.


Occupying Central” is a campaign proposed by Tai. The campaign aims at urging the Central government to promise the launch of universal suffrage in 2017 Hong Kong Chief Executive Election.


Benny Tai worked as the assistant professor and lecturer in the Department of Law of the University of Hong Kong since 1991. He mainly focuses on studying the Basic Law of HKSAR, as well as the comparative constitutional law and administrative law.
