The second “Deliberation Day” of Occupy Central will be soon started in this month and next month. Dr. Chan Kin-man, one of the key organizers, yesterday announced a series of fundraising activities for Occupy Central, aiming to raise HK$5 million. Benny Tai Yiu-ting, another key organizer, said today in a talk at Shue Yan University, that these activities are a part of the Civil Disobedience and aim to involve most of citizens.

Chan announced that Occupy Central would organize several activities to raise at least HK$5 million to support their future functions. These fundraising activities include setting up market for charity bazaar, encouraging 5000 people to donate HK$1000 each and organizing dinner events. Since the entrance fees of the dinner events set from HK$1500 to HK$5000, they had been challenged that the fees are too high.

Tai responded that although the entrance fees are really high to afford for many of people, all the fundraising activities aim to involving more and more citizens. He explained that if some people were not willing to participate in Occupy Central or other Civil Disobedience activities, they could sacrifice their money. “Democracy is all about paying cost. It depends on how much cost are you willing pay,” said Tai.

Tai mentioned that Occupy Central would not accept donations from foreign countries weeks before. He added today that, if the donation was from Chinese people in other countries, or some foreign people passing by their donation boxes, they would certainly welcome. “But the most important rule of accepting donation is it must be an unconditioned donation, which means that the donor cannot force us to do particular things,” said Tai.
