【The sixth day of the occupation |占中第六天 】

Occupy Central in Hong Kong has entered into the sixth day. The Hong Kong Chief Executive, Leung Chun-ying, responded yesterday at 11:30pm to the protesters that he will not resign but is willing to engage in dialogues with the student leaders. Leung’s speech has angered thousands of protesters and debates of whether the movement should take over the government buildings. The Hong Kong Federation of Students (HKFS) responded Leung’s speech by emphasizing that the occupation must continue to exert pressure on the government to push for political reform on the Basic Law, whether through Leung or not. However, it seems now that the authorities in Beijing and Hong Kong are betting that they can wait out on the occupation till the public support for the movement fades out. It is indeed a critical timing to reenergize the momentum of the movement and take its political strategy to a different level.

香港占中進入第六天。特首梁振英昨天晚間十一點半公開聲明他不會辭職,但願意和占中學生領袖接見討論。梁振英的發言激怒了許多在場的抗爭民眾,是否要包圍政府大樓的辯論也一一在占中場內展開。針對梁振英的發言,香港學聯強調佔領的行動必須持續,好以繼續對政府施壓推動政治改革。目前看來,北京當局和香港政府的策略似乎是要消耗占中的能量,等待公眾的支持減退。對於占中的抗爭者,這確實是一個關鍵的時刻,必須升級運動的政治策略,以維持這場運動的能量。
