 香港倡議訂立檔案法| Advocate for Archives Law in Hong Kong

香港回歸以來,大量政府檔案被銷毀,本地珍貴的歷史資料白白失去。申訴專員公署上月公布就公開資料機制及政府檔案管理制度進行直接調查。民間機構獨立媒體(香港)遂發動網上聯署,要求立即訂立檔案法。

While Hong Kong’s new city mayor CY Leung was being elected and inaugurated, billions of sheets worth of government records were trashed. In fact, if you stacked up all the trashed records, they would be about 40 times the height of the world’s tallest building Dubai’s Burj Khalifa ( which is 829.8 meters.) Hong Kong In-Media, a NGO that promotes the development of citizen media and information freedom took the opportunity to launch a campaign, demanding immediate legislation to protect government archives and public access to information.

WhatsApp 要收年費,令更多港人轉投免費軟件「微信」懷抱。不過上月就有外國傳媒發現,微信連海外用戶都監控,不能發送敏感詞如「南方周末」。此外,微信的「公眾平台」亦更新措施,要求用戶奉上個人照及身分證,引起不滿。
