Smart Talk | HK local & international young talents: Is patriotic education really "brainwashing"?
Ever since the social unrest in 2019, discussions on politics have deeply infiltrated into Hong Kong’s daily life and campus has become a "battleground of propaganda". Recently, there has been a discriminative video released by the Campus TV of Hong Kong University Students’ Union against mainland Chinese students, which has aroused great controversies among its audience. In this episode, DotDotNews invites Alris, a HK local student from HKUST, and RJ, a Philippine PhD candidate at HKBU to join our discussion.
With their experience of studying and living in their home cities and abroad, both Alris and RJ have international perspectives on various current issues. What are their reactions after watching the biased video? What do they think of the self-identification issues of many Hongkongers? Do they think patriotic education is necessary? Watch the video for more details.
自2019年的修例風波以來，關於政治的討論已深深滲透到香港的日常生活中，校園也逐漸淪為輿論的「戰場」。近日，隨着新學年開始，香港大學學生會校園電視（Campus TV, HKUSU）發布了一條大學官方迎新片段的「二次創作」，針對中國內地學生，引起了極大爭議。本期節目，DotDotNews點新聞邀請了畢業於香港科技大學的本地學生Alris和就讀於香港浸會大學、來自菲律賓的博士生RJ來參與我們的討論。
