Hong Kong citizens to switch off TVs to protest FTA licensing
The Standard has reported that thousands of Hong Kong citizens are expected to join a campaign to switch off their televisions on October 30, 2013 against the government’s decision on free-to-air licenses, adding that the campaign was initiated by a group of bloggers.
A Facebook page, which has more than 2,500 likes, encourages viewers to turn their sets off between 7pm and 11pm on the day. The page appeals to the public to turn of their TVs – whether to support Ricky Wong, to demand that the reasons behind Wong’s licence rejection be made clear, or to show their concern about the lack of choice in the TV market.
The government’s stand is that the Executive Council’s principle of confidentiality makes it inappropriate for them to explain their decision, according to The Standard.
