Disputed[edit]

I removed the following sentence from the first paragraph in the controversy section.

"However, it is reported that some of the participants do not know they are going to join the rallies until they are sent to the venue."

Someone should provide a link to prove this claim before it is put back in the article. --205.250.250.154 21:45, 2 December 2005 (UTC)

You may want to look into the archives of local newspapers for reports related to either of the July 1 protests, when the FTU and other pro-Beijing organisations held activities nearby. There was similar coverage on a campaign rally for the DAB candidates for the 2004 LegCo election. — Instantnood 19:53, 3 December 2005 (UTC)
Please provide links, we need proof, I would rather not simply take your word for it. This sounds very POV. --154.20.68.142 08:13, 5 December 2005 (UTC)
It's nothing POV here. They're facts that most familiar with Hong Kong politics can tell. You can verify it from the archive of many local newspapers. — Instantnood 12:50, 5 December 2005 (UTC)
I follow the politics there every day, and I have two friends who are journalists for the South China Morning Post. The allegations you are making are very POV. It is YOUR responsibility to prove their factual accuracy, so if you cannot provide proper news article links here or in the article then the allegation should be removed. --205.250.250.154 05:06, 7 December 2005 (UTC)
It's a paid service to look into the archives of many local newspapers, including the SCMP, as well as the Apple Daily and Ming Pao, which are among the best-selling Chinese-language daily papers here. That's the reason why I've suggested you to go to any of the archives, if you've an account. — Instantnood 16:22, 7 December 2005 (UTC)
Provide a day and page number for an article that says so. That's what a citation is. It doesn't have to be an internet link and it doesn't have to be free, but someone should be able to go look it up exactly where you tell them to. SchmuckyTheCat 17:41, 7 December 2005 (UTC)
When time allows. For the time being try look into the news after an assembly in support of the anti-subversion legislation on December 20 2002, after the July 1 2003 rally, when the DAB and its allies held a fair at the football pitches at Victoria Park, the election campaign rally on September 5 2004 for the LegCo election, or the "Anti-Politician Assembly" at Chater Garden on January 1 2005. — Instantnood 13:57, 8 December 2005 (UTC)
I'm from HK too, but I think this particular sentence is a bit too POV, and is not necessary to describe the DAB. Did people do the same for the DP article? In any event, it is wholly unnecessary and brings objectivity into disrepute.jsw663jsw663 15:57, 18 January 2006 (GMT)

Fair use rationale for Image:Image-Democratic Alliance for the Betterment of Hong Kong logo.GIF[edit]

Image:Logo of the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong.svg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 08:51, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Centre-right[edit]

How is an organization that is considered to be pro-Beijing (i.e. in favor of the communist government, many policies are not friendly for business but support nearly all policies of the HKSAR government) labeled as a Centre-right political party.?????Marxistfounder (talk) 05:44, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

Funded by Communist Party of China[edit]

Hi, I think user Jsw663 believes it is author Beatty who seems to express the view that that political party is funded by the Communist Party of China. I have added some more sources to keep it in the history section. It really isn't a view expressed by the author. It is quite a unanimous view found in many books actually. If there are any problems, please let me know. I can add more sources. Benjwong (talk) 03:33, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

Economy[edit]

So whats this parties econimic position?--J intela (talk) 18:16, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

They're unabashed commies. You know, State owns all the means of production, kids of Party leaders go to the best schools, etc.Ndriley97 (talk) 00:30, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
  • What is the point of listing ONLY elected seats, instead of total seats of district council of HK, as the meeting of district council is held NOT ONLY elected seats, but ALSO Ex Officio Member (Rural Committee Chairmen). Listing ONLY elected seats is very misleading to the readers. UU (talk) 12:53, 28 February 2016 (UTC)

I have just added archive links to 7 external links on Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong. Please take a moment to review my edit. You may add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it, if I keep adding bad data, but formatting bugs should be reported instead. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether, but should be used as a last resort. I made the following changes:
