Talk with Elsie Tu (06 Jun 2004)

Printer-friendlyPrinter-friendly

Elsie Tu (Former Legislator) recalls her political life which started in 1956. She says everything has changed but the problems still exist. She says no Chinese dare to speak up in those days, but this has changed after the Handover. She believes the July 1 mass rally aims to demand universal suffrage in 2007/08, but she will not support it until people are free from the superpowers' influence. She says democracies in the west are using globalization to exploit the poor. She still champions for the underdog and the unemployed, but criticizes the English press for trying to silence her.
