China introduced its National Anthem Law on 1st October this year. Last Saturday, the National People’s Congress voted to introduce that law to Hong Kong and Macau. With us in the studio are Executive Councillor Ronny Tong and Avery Ng, Chairman of the League of Social Democrats. In July, Chief Executive Carrie Lam announced that the government plans to spend an additional HK$3.6 billion per year on education, a partial fulfilment of her election pledge to increase recurrent annual expenditure on education by HK$ 5 billion. One initiative involves granting individual schools between HK$450,000 and HK$517,000 per year to hire full-time teachers to help students with special needs. But is that going to be enough? On Tuesday, Alex Chow, a former leader of the Occupy movement, was released on bail pending an appeal against his sentence for unlawful assembly. He is sharing his maybe temporary exit from jail with Joshua Wong and Nathan Law who were released on bail in late October. We’ll leave you with images of how that went and, without the need for any kind of appeal, hope to see you next week. Goodbye.
