CHINA (HONG KONG): ONLINE SIGNATURE CAMPAIGN TO SAVE RTHK

The Hong Kong Journalists Association (HKJA) and other non-governmental organisations need your autograph in their online campaign to save the popular broadcaster Radio and Television Hong Kong (RTHK).

RTHK has been the de facto public broadcaster in Hong Kong for many years. But in a recent recommendation, the government has prevented RTHK from becoming a truly independent public service and wants to implement a totally new Hong Kong Public Broadcasting Corporation instead - whose board members would be conveniently appointed by Hong Kong's Chief Executive. Could this be the death of RTHK?

Sign the petition to save RTHK here: http://www.petitiononline.com/SaveRTHK/petition.html, and check out the latest news and articles on the Save RTHK website: http://SaveRTHK.org
