PRO-DEMOCRACY activists gathered outside the headquarters of the New China News Agency yesterday to protest over the setting up of the working group for the Preparatory Committee for the Special Administrative Region.

In a petition, the Joint Association of People's Organisations for the Promotion of Democracy said setting up the group was contradictory to the terms of the Basic Law.

The activists also condemned the deputy chairman of the working group, Simon Li Fook-sean, for saying four legislators were unsuitable to remain in the Legislative Council after 1997.
