(Objecting what? You should spell out forthright that it was "Objecting the Government" that Fan was referring to. There is a term for people objecting to have incinerators or prisons or mental institutions built near their homes and which is NIMBY. NIMBY means Not In My Back Yard. The term was universally accepted in English language media. And so is the term SNAFU, which means Seems Normal but All Fucked Up. You don't need to spell out these terms. Just use it and people understand.)

Think before objecting

27 November 2012 Reporter: Julia Chan --105114 Fanny Law, member of the Executive Council reminded hundreds of university students today to think twice before making any objections in the weekly General Assembly held in Hong Kong Shue Yan University.

Law cited the building of incinerator as an example in reminding students to think clearly before they put forward any objections. Law said when students oppose the idea of building incinerators but at the same time producing tones of municipal solid waste, is indeed objecting without reflecting on oneself.

Law did agree with environmental groups that government should first take actions in reducing waste at source and encouraging citizens to adopt a green lifestyle before constructing incinerators, however, Law asked the students as citizens, did we ever work out the 3Rs – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle? Did we do our best in reducing the ever increasing solid waste? Law said these days whenever oppositions are raised, citizens have often missed out the reality. Incinerators, of course inevitably increase air pollution, yet, it is not a mission impossible in preventing the pollution. Moreover, as observed in Germany, incinerators can indeed generate electricity for a city. Law hoped to use this example of incinerators to remind students to consider every aspects carefully before proposing an objection.
