Robert Chow Yung, one of the founders of Silence Majority, an organization set up to stop the Occupy Central movement, calling that this movement is posing “a clear and present danger” to Hong Kong, hoping that by encouraging more Hong Kong citizens to voice out, the Occupy Central movement can be abolished.


In the talk given at Shue Yan University earlier today, Chow has expressed his fears on how Occupy Central might paralyze different sectors in Hong Kong. “At that time, all the cross harbor tunnels will be blocked and ferries will have to carry vegetables to Hong Kong Island in order to maintain supply,” Chow said.


Although recognizing that the two demonstration in 1989 (protesting against the cruelty done by the PRC army in the 4th June incident) and in 1st July 2003 (opposing the anti-subversion Hong Kong Basic Law Article 23 due to the fear of losing the freedom of speech along with other freedoms) with more than a million Hong Kong citizens participating were done unexpectedly peaceful, Chow emphasized, “no one is a criminal until he committed his first crime,” alluding that Hong Kong citizens might not be that cool-headed this time.


Besides “alerting” the audience the possible situation that might happen if Occupy Central turns out to be a chaos, Chow believes that democracy encourages confrontation. “If there is democracy, there must be at least two groups of people opposing each other,” Chow said. He also said that in order to have democracy, minority opinion must be sacrificed and it must be feasible under the present institution.


“I can totally imagine Civic Party and the Democratic Party sign the political reform package hand in hand, this is a compromise that has 100% chance to happen,” said Robert Chow, the main spokesman in Silence Majority.
