Outrage or Apathy?

While Hong Kong activists are busy talking about another “Occupy Central” movement – this time to be a better organized and better grounded one than the last, the passing away of Stephane Hessel, a much revered champion of human rights and author of Time for Outrage (Indignez-vous!), the very book that inspired “Occupy Wall Street”, went largely unnoticed in Hong Kong.

Dear Ms poon,

I am writing on behalf of The Young Reporters, published by International Journalism students of Hong Kong Baptist University.

The Young Reporters has been published for more than 40 years on a monthly basis by students in the International Journalism stream of HKBU. Each issue is sent to all tertiary institutions, secondary schools of Hong Kong and government officials.

We are thinking of doing a cover story on property developers (Their impacts on the society, economy and the political scene) in this coming issue and we would be grateful if you could kindly arrange us a time for an interview since you are obviously very familiar with this issue. In fact, the idea of this piece was mostly generated by your book - Land and the Ruling Class in Hong Kong.

We would be happy to arrange the interview in the format of email or phone should you have no time for a face-to-face interview, which would be highly appreciated. I can be contacted through this email or by 91737079.

Thank you very much for your attention!

Looking forward to receiving your reply.

Yours Sincerely,
Hui Wan Fung, Rev
Deputy Editor, The Young Reporter,
