I am beginning to think the #HK freedom struggle should take the 'opportunity' of the cancellation of Legco elections & the multi-front crackdown to develop our democratic capabilities. This can take many forms but I particularly have in mind the setting up of a shadow parliament
The shadow parliament, unlike the #HK govt or Legco, would be fully democratically elected. Its basis could be the recent pro-democracy primary + perhaps District Councils. It would be elected by people in the HK freedom struggle & represent them.
It would debate and vote on policies, including how to proceed w the freedom struggle in the face of increasingly authoritarian rule. It would be a model of democracy in #HK, something that has never existed here in any form, neither under UK or Chinese colonialism.
