THE tactics used by the Government to scuttle the Equal Opportunities Bills put forward by former legislator Anna Wu Hung-yuk may soon be splashed on computer screens across the world.

Ms Wu has decided to put details of her two-year crusade and Government's intransigence on the Internet computer network which has tens of millions of users.

Ms Wu's assistant, Eric Chow Lok-ning, acknowledged that this might embarrass the Government, but stressed that was not the objective.

He said Ms Wu's three bills, Legco voting records and government attempts to sabotage the bills would all be sent into cyberspace.

The bills were all rejected on July 31 by the combined opposition of Government and pro-business lawmakers. Ms Wu has accused the Government of indulging in dirty tricks by putting pressure on legislators through their employers.

He said the aim was to encourage more people everywhere to monitor progress on anti-discrimination.

Ms Wu is taking advertisements in two Chinese-language newspapers on Tuesday, with pictures of the 31 lawmakers who voted against the bill.
