A core organizer of the “Occupy Central” campaign attended an assembly in Hong Kong Shue Yan University yesterday and said that he expected to be arrested for the movement.


“According to Martin Luther King Jr., civil disobedience itself is illegal and non-violent. Parties involved do it for justice and are willing to bear the responsibility for an offence,” said Benny Tai Yiu-ting, initiator of the campaign.


Tai admitted that people involved in “Occupy Central” are expected to be arrested as the campaign will cause disturbance in society. Yet being arrested can achieve their “dramatic effect” to arouse public’s attention. “If the government takes action violently when we follow the rule of non-violence, the public will pay attention, sympathize with us, or even show supports.” He added that civil disobedience cannot change the mechanism but the public’s responses.


Tai hoped that citizens who participate in the campaign can benefit. “Democracy is not a slogan. It is a process for people to enjoy the rights of speech and get to know more about the mechanism after digesting related information.”
