HK Army Cadets Association, Discussion with Ching Cheong, the debate on self-determination in the ma

2015-01-23
Last Sunday the Hong Kong Army Cadets Association was inaugurated. Its official aim is to make Hong Kong's youngsters "aware of their responsibilities and obligations as Chinese citizens". WIth us in the studio to talk about the impact of setting up such association is commentator Ching Cheung.

Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying’s attack on the University of Hong Kong Students’ Union magazine “Undergrad”, took many people by surprise, and made the magazine, and a book that included articles from it, more popular than ever. The controversy arose over articles discussing self-determination and self-reliance for Hong Kong. Housing was supposed to be the core issue raised in the Policy Address. Out of the goodness of his heart no doubt, the Chairman of Henderson Land, Lee Shau-kee has said he’d like to help by giving away the land currently occupied by the Tai Hang Sai Estate. He plans to use it to build 5,000 flats for low income young people to buy. The estate’s current tenants are not so thrilled.

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.
