Thousands of students plan week-long classroom boycott in push for democracy
Students from at least 11 tertiary education institutions are planning to boycott classes for a week and rally outside the government headquarters later this month, student leaders said yesterday, as they urged Hongkongers to stick together to push for democracy.
The exact location, duration and time of the strike has not been finalised, but would likely take place in the middle or at the end of this month, said Alex Chow Yong-kang, general secretary of the Hong Kong Federation of Students, which represents college students.
Joshua Wong Chi-fung, convenor of Scholarism, which represents secondary school pupils, said it would be more difficult for them to boycott classes. He said he expected their turnout to be a "three-digit number".
On Tuesday Wong and other Scholarism activists began handing out flyers to promote a one-day class boycott among secondary pupils. They will invite pupils who join the boycott to a mass "democracy class" in a public square on the day.
Chow said he did not believe the government would immediately back down and give Hong Kong universal suffrage when the strikes took place. "But the purpose is to wake up people from across the city. Even the students have come out, and so the rest of Hongkongers should stand united as well," he said on RTHK radio yesterday.
Chow said students from each of the institutions had set up a taskforce to explore how to organise a boycott and would meet this weekend.
The secondary school students who took part would need to sign a statement saying they were not simply skipping classes but attending another kind of lesson at Civic Square, Wong said.
At Chinese University yesterday, student union members gave away yellow ribbons to students on the first day of the new term.

Union president Tommy Cheung Sau-yin said the students were angry at Beijing's decision on Sunday, which set tough rules for the 2017 chief executive election. "The number of people boycotting classes would not be small," he said.
The university's vice chancellor, Professor Joseph Sung Jao-yiu, said the school respected students' feelings and their opinions. "This is a university and we allow an open forum for speech and expression of attitude," he said, adding that he hoped student groups would discuss their plans with school officials to minimise any disturbance.
A Baptist University spokesman said that if students miss more than 15 per cent of their classes in any subject, they would not be able to sit for examinations. Teachers wishing to join the boycott should get directors' approval and arrange make-up classes beforehand, he said.
Most other universities have similar arrangements.
Chan Yuen-ying, principal of St Stephen's Church College in Sai Ying Pun, said they had discussed preparations for Occupy Central. If pupils choose not to attend school, they would make use of online teaching, she said.
A number of pupils voiced their support for Occupy Central yesterday.
"To me, whether or not to take part in Occupy Central will still depend on the NPC's attitude and actions this week," said a Form Five pupil at St Paul's Co-educational College, who insisted on anonymity.

Personal aspect Stakeholders

According to law
teenagers are the one who
lack of capacity

critical ability
not responsible to society,
school and parents

1.Push for
in Hong Kong
2.Protect the core-value in Hong Kong
Student activism

and demonstration
The last method
Personal aspect Stakeholders
"democracy class" in a public square
provide a comprehensive learning environment to students
all round development when growing
- Can students protect themselves? e.g. during assembly,
between police force and assembly students may happen => become another June Forth Incident?

2. The meaning of action- Is the action
in fighting for real universal suffrage? Can it change the attitude and decision of the central government? (
theoretical outcome vs actual outcome

3. Advantages vs disadvantages to the students
-Able to pay effort for the future of HK and learn outside the class
=> there will be
lectures and activities
held, as well as gaining more experience
Draw people's attention
successfully by spreading the message through actions like boycotting class
-Worsen the
academic results
=> miss the lessons => cannot follow the curriculum => fail to keep up with other students
=> negatively affect the future

More controversy...
4. School stance vs students' choice
-there will be different opinion
=> conflicts happen => there may have punishment to the students => negatively affect the relationship between the school and students
may happen => negatively affect the relationship among students

5. Effect on parent-child relationship
-Parents are worry about their children => stop them from participating the action => students cannot follow what they would like to do => have arguments with parents =>
family dispute
=> worsen the relationship

the government should listen to the public and reflect them to central government
People are striking for a real universal suffrage
But the system approved by central government doesn't satisfy people's want
So they want to voice out their opposing views
But institutionalize mean is useless
Students decided to boycott classes in order to raise public awareness

Political problem may affect the
standard of living
of every Hong Kong citizen, as it will bring negatively affect on
1.economy of HK
2.social operations
3.International images of Hong Kong
4.Unsound political system

Every citizen including students have the
right and responsibility

Using the
power of citizens
to make government compromise
Argument 2
pursuit knowledge is the
major concern
of students
but not only just academically
also the
way and the attitude
towards knowledge
through the participation on this issue
students can have another channel to acquire the knowledge
1. life skills(decision making skills, problem solving skills)

some post 70's and government officials may think the students are not mature enough to attend the political movement

actually, they are highly educated and have their own views and thoughts
other people can't disapprove their behavior if their parents let them to do so
