Statutory harbour body still the goal

How times have changed. A decade ago, government efforts to fill in yet more of Victoria Harbour would have prompted outrage and the launching of a legal challenge. Last week, two stalwarts of the protection movement, Christine Loh Kung-wai and Winston Chu Ka-sun, announced that their mission had been accomplished, declaring yesterday's Walk for the Harbour would be the last.

Silent leader

It is a disgrace that someone like Winston Chu Ka-sun, founder and chairman of the Society for the Protection of the Harbour, should be driven out of the special administrative region for fear of his own safety and that of his family. Those who threatened him - and his 86-year-old mother - are the ones who should be expelled, not Mr Chu.

We all deserve freedom to speak up without fear

Hong Kong is a safe city with a low crime rate where freedom of speech is taken seriously. So it came as a shock that anti-reclamation campaigner Winston Chu Ka-sun has been subject to threats against the safety of himself and his family.

Our need for preservation

The people of Hong Kong owe a debt of gratitude to Christine Loh, Winston Chu, Peter Wong and May Ng, for their sustained campaign to persuade the Government to preserve and prolong the lifespan of the most spectacular harbour in the world.
