Students urged to avoid Occupy Central
(05-14 17:44)

The Education Secretary, Eddie Ng Hak-kim, has urged students not to take part in the planned Occupy Central protest.
He said the act of civil disobedience, involving blocking roads in Central, would be illegal, and people taking part may be prosecuted.
Ng warned that a conviction could have long-term repercussions for a young person's prospects.
He called on parents and teachers to fully explain the risks involved so that students can make an informed decision.
Robert Chow Yung of the Voice for Hong Kong said his group is writing to more than 500 secondary schools to remind them of their liability. --RTHK
