【明報專訊】When the Nobel Peace Prize is announced in Norway in October, I hope we will hear the words: "The Nobel Peace Prize for 2019 is awarded to the Hong Kong Young People of 2019"! Please, someone, make this nomination!
I have such a hope because like so many other older people — both local and from overseas — I have been immensely impressed by the courage and commitment of Hong Kong's young people in standing up for the city's basic freedoms over the past few weeks.
I attended both the June 4 vigil and the June 16 march, and was inspired by the young people's love for Hong Kong, as well as by their exemplary behaviour.
Concerning June 16 I would like to see some surveys made to ask people if they attended June 16. I feel the police figure of 338,000 is more accurate than 2,000,000. Would a survey show that one in three adults attended?
