    Latest on Hong Kong protests

    On today's Backchat, have plans for dialogue been derailed before they've left the station? Hundreds of District Councillors are due to meet the Government in the afternoon, but some democrats and some from the pro-establishment camp have already said they won't even attend. As the Administration also sets up an official Office of Dialogue and schedules public sessions, what are the chances of winning over sceptics? And a recent survey from CUHK found that 71.7% of respondents think police have used excessive force, while only 39.4% think the protestors have used excessive force. 55.7% agree and 26.9% disagree with the statement that 'when peaceful protest cannot make the government respond, protestors' radical action is understandable'. 8:30-9:30 Latest on Hong Kong protests 8:30-9:30 Nixie Lam BH, Tsuen Wan District Councillor, DAB 9:00-9:30 Kalvin Ho, Sham Shui Po District Councillor, ADPL

    Free Economy / Electronic Waste

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton

    On Monday's Backchat, a free economy.  The Heritage Foundation has ranked Hong Kong the world's freest economy for 25 consecutive years. What does that mean though, and how do you judge freedom? What about indirect taxes, and inequality? What about the monopolies here in some fields? With free education, public healthcare and extensive public housing are we more socialist than capitalist? Are we a model for the world, or a warning? And will integration into the Greater Bay Area, run on a top-down approach, mean the end of our freedom? After 9.20, what to do with electronic waste?

    Let us know your thoughts. You can leave a message on our Facebook page, Backchat on RTHK Radio 3, email us at backchat@rthk.hk, or give us a call on 23388266.
