31 Oct, 2014 – Another giant pro-democracy banner states “I want genuine universal suffrage (我要真普選)” has been hung on Kowloon Peak (aka Fei Ngo Shan) Suicide Cliff.
It comes days after the authorities removed a similar banner hung from Lion Rock.
Kowloon Peak or Fei Ngor Shan or Fei Ngo Shan is a 602 m (1,975 ft) tall mountain in the northeast corner of New Kowloon, Hong Kong, situated in Ma On Shan Country Park. It is crossed by both the Wilson Trail and the MacLehose Trail. On the lower slopes is Gilwell Campsite, belonging to The Scout Association.
Occupy Central (佔領中環) is a civil disobedience campaign initiated by Benny Tai Yiu-ting, Associate Professor of Law at the University of Hong Kong, and advocated by Occupy Central with Love and Peace. In the course of the 2014 Hong Kong electoral reform, OCLP intends to pressure the PRC Government into granting an electoral system which “satisfies the international standards in relation to universal suffrage” in Hong Kong Chief Executive election in 2017 as promised according to the Hong Kong Basic Law Article 45. Should such an electoral system not be achieved, OCLP sought to fight for equal suffrage in Hong Kong through illegal means, namely the occupation of Central, which OCLP vowed would be non-violent.
