Humanitarianism

Lack of green anger at mining tragedies

Is there anybody else in Hong Kong who, like me, marvels at the selective humanitarianism of environmentalists?

Moral right prevails

The Security Bureau's decision to reconsider the ban on schooling for mainland children awaiting a decision on their right of abode status is a development of profound significance. Today, some 30 children will go to school who a fortnight or so ago had no hope whatsoever of getting a formal education in Hong Kong.

Alternative agenda

It seems that delegates to world economic forums will have to get used to disruption from protesters bent on violence. The mayhem in Melbourne is a repeat of scenes in Seattle, Washington and Davos, Switzerland. Presumably there will be more of the same in Prague later this month when meetings of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund are held.

Keeping in step with needs of our time

Many lives and numerous communities across the world have been touched by the relief work of the Red Cross and its army of volunteers.

The global organisation demonstrated the spirit of reaching out through a dance event that attracted thousands of people.

Business cannot replace charities

I REFER to the letters of Mr Radlauer (South China Morning Post, February 27) and of Mr De Wolf (Post, March 3).

I am happy to have started a debate on this important subject, but at the same time alarmed that my message was so badly misinterpreted. I totally agree with both letters and I wonder whether there was a linguistic problem that resulted in my being misunderstood.

Businesses make a difference

MS ANNE Decortis of Medicins Sans Frontieres (South China Morning Post, February 25) may be correct in criticising the efficiency and effectiveness of the Benetton clothing-donation campaign.

Benetton wasting cash

YOU can now put your clothes on, Mr Benetton, the show is almost over. Eighty bags of second-hand clothes, given by the people of Hongkong, will probably end up in a warehouse somewhere between Asia and Italy.
