Universal suffrage is promised as an “ultimate aim”. Denied once, it can be delayed further. Many of the old folk will not live to see it. [The bird-like logo, “Universal Suffrage”, is a variation of a logo used by the SAR Government to promote Hong Kong as “Asia’s World City”. The design was adapted and modified by people fighting for universal suffrage in Hong Kong.]

承諾中的雙普選是「最終目標」。否決了一次,難保不會一再推遲。也許,很多老人家此生已無法看得見普選了。[圖中的飛鳥狀標誌源自政府花了幾百萬設計的一個標誌,用來宣傳香港是個「亞洲國際都會」。這個標誌的設計意念被爭取普選的人士借用,改成「普選」的標誌。]
