Legislator Eddie Chu Barred from Village Election on Shaky Grounds

Legislator Eddie Chu Hoi-dick was disqualified from running for a local village's
representative. Returning officer Enoch Yuen Ka-lok pointed to Chu's 'implicit'
stance on Hong Kong independence and said the lawmaker had dodged his questions
on his political beliefs, implying that Chu supports Hong Kong independence.

Former HKU law dean Johannes Chan does not believe election officer can
provide 'cogent, clear and compelling' evidence for disqualification.
Eric Cheung, HKU law professor, says the reasons given for Chu's
disqualification were weak and Hong Kong courts must clarify
the vagueness in election laws.

Chu won with a record 84,121 votes in the 2016 Legislative Council election.
Critics cite the ban as another instance of civil rights being eroded in
the China-ruled city. The move against Chu adds to a list of other
democrats who have been banned from contesting elections,
fueling fears of tightening political 'red lines' by Beijing.

Homework Time for China's 'Low-end Population'
(Finalist for Hong Kong Human Rights Arts Prize 2018)

13 year-old deaf-mute students Chang Jingjing and Huo Xun do their homework
using folding chairs as makeshift tables outside their tiny room, which is
too small for a table. They are daughters of migrant workers and neighbours
of the Liang family in Shahe, a shanty town outside Beijing.

Tens of thousands of migrant workers, deemed 'low-end population' by the
Chinese government, were forcefully evicted from Beijing, Shanghai and
Shenzhen, etc in Nov 2017. These raised concerns that the government
discriminate against them after doing the dirtiest jobs to build up the
mega cities. Over 100 Chinese intellectuals signed a condemning petition.

China's 'Low-end Population' Doing the Dirtiest Jobs
(Finalist for Hong Kong Human Rights Arts Prize 2018)

40 year-old migrant Liang Chengsou from Sichuan works underground on the
latest Beijing subway extension. Migrant workers from the poorest provinces
are the unsung heroes left behind by China's economic miracle. They end
up doing the most 'dirty, heavy, hard and exhausting' jobs that the locals
mostly avoid in the cities.
