Editorial : A platform for dialogue is worth a try

【明報專訊】THE GOVERNMENT has proposed the creation of a platform for dialogue in the hope of seeking a way out of the current situation with people from different social strata and with different political views. No problem can be solved by violence. In the last analysis, conflicts and disagreements have to be resolved through dialogue. Recently the heads of several universities and people with status have expressed support for the creation of a platform for dialogue and offered to act as go‑betweens. Though last night saw another confrontation between police and citizens at Yuen Long, the road of rational dialogue should not be given up easily.
