Let's now find a way forward on Hong Kong's political reform

Let's now find a way forward on Hong Kong's political reform | Communication for Sustainable Social Change | Scoop.it
The clearance of Occupy Central was proving a long work in progress last night. Hopefully Hong Kong island's main artery may soon be flowing freely again. But it would be naive to think this would be the end of an extraordinary chapter in our...
Jan Servaes's insight:

"Grievances embrace widespread dissatisfaction with Hong Kong's governance that goes beyond its current chief executive or political reform. They include economic policies, unaffordable housing, failed education reforms, lack of social mobility for young people, a widening income gap and perceived collusion between officials and property tycoons. In terms of social cohesion, that is a perfect storm of discontent. Many of these problems are now deep-rooted, and not easily solved with measures by the government of the day alone. We need to find better ways to work together as a community".
