Inauguration messages  
George Cautherley:With so much activity coming up on the democracy front, Green Paper, DC elections and LegCo by-election, it is timely for the Civil Society Development Resources Center and web site to be established. CSD should become the “one stop shop” knowledge base on democracy issues for the Hong Kong community.
Audrey Eu: Democracy is not for a few but everyone. And Democracy Depot is here to serve everyone dedicated to the cause.
Lee Kok-long: Democracy and Universal Suffrage are the critical elements for Hong Kong to develop healthily. Keep ourselves healthy and fight for Democracy!
2012, Universal Suffrage
Emily Lau:Democracy is not a gift from Beijing.
Charles Mok:As a modern international city and financial center, Hong Kong should improve our mechanisms to protect property, disclose information, encourage social participation and enhance transparency, rather than continue to protect certain minority self-interest.  Democracy and universal suffrage are critical for Hong Kong’s economic competitiveness as a modern society.
Albert Ho:We have been waiting for 20 years. We want a true and real democratic election.
