Evan looks at the parallels between the Catalan referendum and the 2014 poll, and the following Occupy protests. Whilst he sees many similarities, he stresses that there is a fundamental difference: the relationship of Hong Kong people with our national government is defined by fear. We dare not have a referendum. And our “pragmatism” is not pragmatic, but really a sign of oppression.
編按：Evan 審視加泰羅尼亞公投、香港 2014 年民意調查，以及之後的佔領行動，雖然從中看到很多相似之處，但 Evan 強調兩地人民有根本區別：香港人與政府的關係是由恐懼所決定的，我們因此不敢公投；我們所謂的「實用主義」並不務實，而是真正被壓迫的跡象。
