(We don't adjust Basic Law or constitution, we amend it or we re-interpret it. Tai has asked the authority to interpret the Basic Law to adopt the need of the public under current circumstance and he defined it as the Constitution Moment. We don't say striking for justice but "fighting for" or "striving for" justice. You have a keen news sense but you need to improve your English writing. I think you can do much better.)

Hong Kong


Initiator of ‘Occupy Central’ Benny Tai Yiu-Ting stressed such political movement is a kind of civil disobedience, in the hope of creating tension among the society that able to force the government or relevant departments to amend and adjust the Basic Law in accordance to current societal changes.


Tai mentioned amendment of constitution is a sophisticated process. It is feasible only when people encounter political crisis, while the majority joins together and pledge for changes in constitution contents.


He repeated that relevant departments responsible for set up and amendments of these highest laws would change their understanding towards the definitions of current constitutions and hence, adjust and amend the articles according to societal changes due to the strong societal will.


Tai defined civil disobedience according to the definitions from Martin Luther. He mentioned that it is an illegal and non-violent movement, where members must bear the responsibilities brought by their acts of striking for justice, and where all legal actions must have been carried out before acting against the law. He also claimed civil disobedience will not be able to alter the social system in itself.


Responding to official of ‘Silent Majority for Hong Kong‘, Chow Yung, who mentioned that disturbances in Central would lead to collapse of Hong Kong two weeks ago, Tai believed that “it is the uncertainty brought by occupying central that create tension among the public, and thus, forcing the government to make constitutional changes.”


Tai believed that such non-violent move would disrupt daily operation of Hong Kong, and may lead to a dramatic effect. He anticipated that such act would lure police arrest. As the public are rational to judge, occupying Central would able to win sympathy from the mass, and hence, raise pressure to the government to deal with the expectations of the members of this political movement.


Tai even said the choice of venue for the political movement “is not a random pick”.


Tai emphasized he encourages people joining the discussion of engaging in the political movement and changes in laws, while occupy Central would be voluntary. He stressed people should think twice before deciding to participate in this political movement.
