言論自由,是自由開放社會的基石。可是,近期一些無理的審查與檢控,如淫審處對中大學生報情色版和《明報》的評級,以及早前檢控色情超連結(hyperlink)的案例,皆告訴我們,本地言論及思想自由的空間,受到無理審查及壓制。而弱勢的個人與社群、獨立媒體(包括 bloggers和網民)所受到的壓力會更大,我們需要更多法律、財政與組織網絡的支援。

Hong Kong: The Bureaucrats Who Run Counter To Daily Experience/Moral Judgment

2007-05-29 - oiwan

The following is the translation of a Chinese-language essay at InMediaHK by Roland Soong.

The Bureaucrats Who Run Counter To Daily Experience/Moral Judgment. By Oiwan Lam. May 28.

This morning, I received first a telephone call from the company that hosts the web server for InMediaHK. They told me that a certain photograph on the website had been placed under warning by the Television and Entertainment Licensing Authority, which has recommended that either we remove the photograph or add a pop-up warning message. Subsequently, I received a telephone call from Mister Kong of the Television and Entertainment Licensing Authority. Since I was attending class at that moment, I could not return the call until 2:30pm to find out what was happening.
