As an alternative means of protest to the government's reluctance to push for universal suffrage, Oscar and a few members of the association has stood quietly during the flag hoisting ceremony at the Golden Bauhinia Square on the National day, but was forcibly carried away by unknown people, "We might have aggressive thoughts, but we used peaceful ways to voice our demands. Their responses were intense, not our actions," said Lai.


Scholarism insists to fight for the universal suffrage proposal which includes a nomination scheme that every citizen can participate. “Our proposal is trying to accommodate Hong Kong citizens’ needs,” said Oscar Lai Man Lok, the spokesman of the student activists group.


Scholarism is a social organization co-found by a few local secondary school students, including Oscar Lai and Joshua Wong Chi-fung, the student political icon emerged in the induction of the National Education incident two years ago.


Lai explained the organization’s stance on universal suffrage and other social-political issues in a talk held in Shue Yan University today. “We insisted to bring out the Chief Executive Election proposal that every person has the right to be nominated, to nominate and to vote,” said Lai.


Lai believed that this scheme should be most suitable for Hong Kong citizens, and emphasized that the barrier of getting 100,000 citizen nominations could be further discussed. “I don’t know why, but the media keep stressing that our universal suffrage proposal needs 100,000 nominations, but never reported that it can be discussed,” said Lai.


In the past July 1st pro-democracy demonstration, Scholarism has raised over 200,000 dollars. “We have used the donations for publishing our magazine “HKDash” and to pay the rent of our organization’s office,” Lai said. He affirmed that the financial record of the group’s received donation is clear and currently managed by professional accountants and auditors. They are just waiting for professional’s advice on when to make it known to public.


According to Lai, as a student-founded association, they are serious about their organization's image and have evaluation conferences after each large-scaled campaign. “Some of our members left the organization after they were being evaluated after the June 4th memorial assembly. They were betting on the attendance of that year’s convocation, but we thought that it was inappropriate to make a bet on such event where we mourn for the democracy martyrs,” Lai said.
