【15th October, 2013 Leung Nga Wing】Lai Man-lok, member of Scholarism, restated that the social group aims at rationally and peacefully holding social movements to affect government’s decision, thus he doubted Professor Tai Yiu-ting’s suggestion on the necessity for Scholarism’s members to gain parents’ approval in participating ‘‘Occupying Central’’ campaign.


Lai said Scholarism agrees on adopting civil disobedience as a means to oppose against the unfair political system in Hong Kong, and thus Scholarism supports the idea of ‘‘Occupying Central’’. ‘‘Although civil disobedience is illegal in nature, such means can be applied when people notice the inappropriateness, injustice and unfairness in society.’’


Lai further pinpointed that the tactic of civil disobedience is not merely to raise people’s awareness and discussion towards certain social and political issues, but also to let people realize the problems of the laws and ruling authorities.


Nevertheless, Lai said Scholarism does not assent to how ‘‘Occupying Central’’ campaign is going to be held. ‘‘Professor Tai notices that most of our members are under 18 years old, so he asks for parents’ approval from those who want to join the campaign. But I don’t see the necessity in doing so.’’ He said there was no such arrangement before in other social movements and campaigns, and thus did not understand why Tai had such suggestion.


Regarding ‘‘Occupying Central’’ campaign, Lai also expressed his discontent towards the D-Day (Discussion Day) held by Professor Tai. He said the discussion forum had already framed what to be discussed, therefore the Scholarism’s idea of civil nomination was not discussed in the forum as it was considered to be too ideal. ‘‘I think certain people who host the discussion do not understand Professor Tai’s idea of letting people with different opinions to discuss the issue.’’


Scholarism is now striking for an open civil nomination in the universal suffrage of Chief Executive Election in 2017. Lai said Hong Kong citizens should be given the rights to nominate and vote for candidates of the Chief Executive Election.


As the representive of Scholarism, a social group led by post-90s students, Lai said their mission is to monitor and influence government policy decision-making process via protests and demonstrations. ‘‘Some people regard us as evil, but we want people to know that we are only ordinary citizens who are concerned about Hong Kong’s political development, education and youth policy.’’


Lai Man-lok, 19, is the member and spokesperson of Scholarism. Earlier in July this year, he was being attacked during a scuffle between pan-democrats and pro-Beijing group in a public forum.


Scholarism was a group founded by certain secondary school students in 2011. It was one of the pressure groups which opposed the launch of moral and national education. Recently, Scholarism is calling for the government to adopt civil nomination during the universal suffrage of 2017 Chief Executive Election.
