Dr Lam Tai-fai speaks out

Good on Dr Lam Tai-fai, usually known as a pro-establishment figure, for speaking out against the disgraceful move by anti-Occupy Central figures to try and get people tell onĀ students who boycott classes:

Industrial sector lawmaker Lam Tai-fai has strongly criticised anti-Occupy Central campaigners for setting up a hotline for the public to report on high-school students planning a class boycott or joining in actions of civil disobedience.

Of course, these are the usual tactics of any totalitarian state, ever more evident nowadays in Hong Kong. What is encouraging however is that people who are not known to speak out, or who usually toe the line, have found the courage to make their voices heard.
