Police use of force: discussion with Amnesty Int'l Roseann Rife & Kenneth Leung; HK teachers teachin

This week, as world leaders assemble in Osaka for the G20 Summit, Hong Kong protesters are taking the opportunity to alert the world to what’s happening here. On Wednesday protestors went to petition some consulates from G20 nations. Also this week, a crowd-funded campaign raised more than HK$6 million in less than 12 hours to advertise in international newspapers in Europe, Asia, Australia and North America. Beijing however insists that it “will not allow” the G20 to discuss the Hong Kong issue. Meanwhile in Hong Kong itself, questions over the policing of protests remain high on the agenda. With us in the studio are Roseann Rife, East Asia Research Director of Amnesty International and Kenneth Leung, legislator and former member of the Independent Police Complaints Council.

The Outline Development Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area was released in February. One of its proposals is to develop the area as an education and talent hub, including allowing teachers from Hong Kong and Macao to teach in Guangdong. A month earlier, China’s Ministry of Education stated that residents of Hong Kong can apply to take the primary and secondary school teacher certification exams previously meant only for mainland Chinese. However, differences between educational models and pay in the two places are significant.

The Pulse

RTHK's English-language current affairs programme that takes "The Pulse" of Hong Kong ... and the world around it.

"The Pulse" is presented by locally and internationally known journalist and writer Steve Vines.

Its focus? The latest events and trends that affect Hong Kong - from the corridors of power and business boardrooms, to the streets and dai pai dongs.

"The Pulse" is politics. What's happening in the Legislative Council and on the streets right now.

"The Pulse" is the media, informing us how well or badly our press and broadcast organisations diagnose and reflect the society around us.

"The Pulse" is insightful, in-depth reports and interviews on current issues - examining those issues in depth, looking behind and beyond the news.

Its focus is on the timely. The Now.

Keep your eye ... and your finger ... on "The Pulse".

If you want to discuss anything you've seen in "The Pulse", or anything in the public eye right now, or just to talk about the show, why not join in the debate on our Facebook page, RTHK's The Pulse. 

Starting 3 April, the programme is aired every Friday on RTHK 31 at 19:30.
