🗣️ 議會工作

強烈反對實施《緊急法》

特首可引用法例權力對通訊進行管制,甚至最嚴重的『斷網』。香港封網等同將內地防火長城直接實施,沒有通訊、網絡及資訊自由的香港,將不再是香港,國際投資者對香港科技業界和整體經濟的信心歸零,這才將是香港資訊科技界最黑暗一日。

✍️ 專業議政聲明:強烈反對實施《緊急情况規例條例》,警告林鄭不要摧毀香港

 文章:動用《緊急法》等於將香港變成烏克蘭

保障T合約員工權益

早前有T合約員工遇到薪資計算方面的問題,事件在我和政府資訊科技辦公室跟進後,員工簽署新合約的限期獲延展處理,問題最後亦獲解決。而就近月的罷工行動,如有資訊科技公務員及合約員工在過往或未來參與罷工行動而受到政府不合理對待,請與我聯絡跟進。(閱讀更多)

關注國家級發放假消息抹黑香港人

社交網站Facebook同Twitter早前發表聲明,指發現中國政府操控大量社交媒體帳戶懷疑針對香港最近的示威發放虛假資訊,我呼籲這兩家公司繼續跟進,把相關的同一來源或性質帳戶適當地刪除,並且並促請其他社交網站和網上平台認真正視和處理中國政府支持、有組織和具政治目的地在網上傳播假消息企圖影響輿論。Youtube最近亦跟隨採取相應打擊行動。(閱讀全文)
 

監察警務處科技項目

警務處近年積極申請撥款提升其科技系統,包括於2017 年向創新及科技局供政府部門申請的『科技統籌(整體撥款)』,涉及三千六百萬元,2016 亦獲立法會財務委員會通過撥款近13億元進行更換『第四代指揮系統』。我最近去信保安局,要求政府提供警務處科技項目的合約詳情及相關的技術運用,協助全民監察。然而,至今仍未獲當局回覆。(閱讀全文)

最新質詢和政府回應

財經及及庫務局:目前未有時間表規管虛擬資產的洗錢風險

智慧燈柱的數據收集及處理

政制及內地事務局交代『社會信用體系』、香港與內地的互聯互通機制、市民對個人資料可能被移交內地的關注

✍🏻 文章分享

 

善用科技 重建信任

現時政府完全失信於民,監察和保障機制失效,科技項目受到牽連,雙輸局面持續,無人樂見。科技是要成為打壓反對聲音的工具或是改善溝通的渠道、利民的措施,決定權在林鄭手上。(閱讀全文)

 

聚焦獨立調查 林鄭需回應市民訴求

由612立法會警民衝突起已近三個月,香港市民連續兩個多月堅持五大訴求,立場非常清晰。一場民意戰,一場很可能是持久的運動,考驗的是我們的耐性、決心及智慧。如何聚眾、凝聚民意支持、如何保持實力與強權周旋,筆者認爲是這場運動的核心。

文章一:內視反聽 大家齊上齊落

文章二:聚焦獨立調查 勿讓林鄭轉移視線

文章三:上善若水 展示智慧

文章四:特區政府 請講人話

🗣️ Council works

 

“Internet shutdown” will truly be the darkest day for Hong Kong IT

The Emergency Regulations Ordinance grants the Chief Executive the power to control telecommunications, including refusing access to the Internet and implementing network shutdown. Without free access to information and the Internet, Hong Kong will lose its shine and cease to attract new foreign investors. Freedom of information is Hong Kong’s cornerstone, without it the city will be reduced to the level of a third world city. In light of the ongoing political predicament, Carrie Lam is still refusing genuine talks, pushing Hong Kong further into serious rift. We must stand strong against such emergency regulation and network shutdown at all costs.

 

Safeguarding the welfare of T-con workers

It was brought to my attention that a T-contract agent has made calculation errors in devising the monthly packages of T-contract staff. I urged the OGCIO to look into the matter and subsequently, the staff was allowed more time to consider the new package and the agent also provided clarification. I also call on all T-contract staff and IT civil servants who have participated in any strike actions to inform me for follow-up if they face any kind of consequences or punishment.
 

More actions against online disinformation needed

Social media platforms Facebook and Twitter have earlier issued statements after internal investigations revealing state-backed operation by the Chinese government to smear the protest movement in Hong Kong and later followed by Youtube. I urged the social media operators to continue to monitor and take action against deliberate dissemination of disinformation, and also called on other social media and platform operators to also take actions against organised campaigns of disseminating disinformation and hate speech in a bid to manipulate public opinions.

Monitoring tech projects undertaken by the Police

The Police has applied for billions of funding for new technology in recent years, including $36 millions (p.110) through the TechConnect programme in 2017, and in the prior year, $1.3 billions approved by the Legco for the upgrade of the Command and Control Communications System. I have written to the Security Bureau to request information about the tenders and the work progress of the projects. The government has not yet responded to my questions.

Who needs the law, when the authority no longer follows it?

The Hong Kong protests against the extradition bill is continuing with no end in sight. Everyone in Hong Kong and around the world is asking, where do we go from here? Yet, no one seems to be able to suggest an answer. That is a dangerous sign, indicating that the whole situation appears to be drifting out of control. (Read full article)

 

Hong Kong needs a long-term strategy for sociopolitical justice and democracy

So, what’s next? It is clear that protesters are extremely determined. The call for change in the last three months has been expanded far beyond the original call for the complete withdrawal of the extradition bill. It is now also about the injustice that our government and those in authority have ignored for years — a fair society and a just political system, starting with autonomy, democracy, and universal suffrage.
