Director of Broadcasting Leung Ka-wing on Thursday said his decision not to air on RTHK next Tuesday’s talk by Hong Kong National Party leader Andy Chan Ho-tin at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club (FCC) had nothing to do with press freedom.
RTHK quoted Leung as saying the station had never given live coverage to a speech by a politician in the past.
The broadcaster’s head of corporate communications, Amen Ng Man-yee, also quoted Leung as stating: Adidas Superstar Womens Black “RTHK, as a public broadcaster, should not be used as a platform to advocate Hong Kong independence.”“The event itself not only includes Chan’s speech, but also a question-and-answer session,” the union said. “Whether to broadcast live or not is a decision usually taken by the department editor. The unusual Nike Air Max 2017 Womens involvement of the director has put pressure on colleagues and raised concerns of interference with press freedom.”Chan’s National Party is facing a proposed ban initiated by police under the Societies Ordinance. The Security Bureau originally gave the party 21 days to submit arguments against the proposal, but it later extended it by another 28 days, until September 4.
No political group has been banned since Hong Kong’s return from British to Chinese rule in 1997.Some serious discussions are going on in China as the country Adidas Superstar Womens Pink faces an escalating trade war with the United States, slowing domestic growth and increasing investment restrictions in the US and Europe. There seems to be recognition that the previous playbook drafted by hardliners has not worked and Beijing needs to change its strategy.Beijing’s strategy of a tit-for-tat Adidas ZX 500 Womens retaliation over tariffs has clearly failed. In fact, this strategy escalated the conflict. The direct retaliation after the US announced the first batch of 25 per cent tariffs on US$50 billion in Chinese goods (with the increase from US$34 billion just finalised and coming into effect on August 23) brought few benefits for China. If anything, it gave the US an excuse to plan for a new batch of tariffs covering US$200 billion in Chinese goods. To be fair, it is possible that the US would have escalated the conflict even if Adidas Yeezy 350 Boost Womens China had not retaliated, but whatever the case may be, China’s strategy did not work.
