In response to the police “strong condemnation” of protesters for not allowing “food trucks to enter the CGO as “inhumane”, OCLP notes the condemnation follows the police refusal to allow protesters to assist in delivering food. This is highly unhelpful to establishing mutual trust.
Protesters have pointed to repeated deception by police, giving them the feeling the police are “crying wolf”. OCLP believes the people are discerning, and hope police management do not make things difficult for frontline police officers.
OCLP respects the students’ position that they will concentrate on discussing political reform at the negotiating table. However, we reiterate our view that Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying is the one responsible for the stalemate, and that he must step down. In order to achieve real universal suffrage, the National People’s Congress Standing Committee must withdraw its decision on Hong Kong’s political reform.

Statement by Occupy Central with Love and Peace in Response to the Chief Executive
Since Hong Kong citizens began to use civil disobedience as a means to struggle for universal suffrage, the Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying has refused to enter direct dialogue with the public. Instead, he has unilaterally spoken on television to criticize the Occupy Central movement. The Occupy Central with Love and Peace (OCLP) movement strongly condemns this, and believe Leung ‘s non-response to the people’s demands has driven Hong Kong into a crisis of disorder. OCLP strongly demands that Leung Chun-ying resign to create a space for political reform and to defuse the crisis in our society.

Thirty years ago, the Chinese Central Government promised Hong Kong “one country, two systems” and “high degree of autonomy”. Those promises have never been fulfilled and democracy in Hong Kong is stifled. Students in those days have their hair turned grey already while students today are going on strike and united in their fight for democracy. The whole city is united in its fight for democracy. This Sunday, Occupy Central withLove and Peace, together with a number of civic organizations, will be holding a black-cloth demonstration to tell the world how Hong Kong people have been betrayed.

The Mid-Autumn Festival has a tradition of civil disobedience in Chinese history. In defiance of the Central Government’s denial of Hong Kong people’s democratic rights, we pledged an era of peaceful resistance.

The three organizers of Occupy Central with Love and Peace have recently received the Ice Bucket Challenge requests from some pro-establishment Councillors. We appreciate its achievements of the IBC in raising public awareness on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). However, we think that there are many more problems in our society that have not gained the support they deserve. The best way to promote love and peace is to encourage the general public to support organizations that foster public welfare. Therefore, we’d like to respond the requests with a donation of HKD 3000 to Amnesty International to support prisoners of conscience and to let the world see that justice can be served.

We respect each and every citizen who voluntarily participated the signature campaign and demonstration, and also understand their worries. We reiterate that occupying Central is only the last resort and, if happens, will definitely be peaceful and non-violent. Just like the 2 July sit-in by 511 protestors at Chater Road, there will not be any confrontation with the police. Continue reading

Dear Hong Kong citizens,
