Today is the second day of boycott by the university students of Hong Kong demanding the most fundamental democratic rights, the right to choose. It is a prelude to the impending 'occupy central with peace and love' movement. The basic law of Hong Kong holds out a promise to strive for universal suffrage. The package offered by Beijing is to freely elect from the practically vetted nominations by the Central Government.
"I realise that some of my criticisms may be mistaken; but to refuse to criticize judgements for fear of being mistaken is to abandon criticism altogether... If any of my criticisms are found to be correct, the cause is served; and if any are found to be incorrect the very process of finding out my mistakes must lead to the discovery of the right reasons, or better reasons than I have been able to give, and the cause is served just as well." -Mr. HM Seervai, Preface to the 1st ed., Constitutional Law of India.
