卿姐特意夥拍馮同學、周校長、唐女士，為你製作了一段短片《 出發，重建一國兩制》，向你解釋我們的競選主題。 請點擊這個網址觀看：
唐女士所說，香港人所珍惜的多元、自由、 法治等價值全部被梁振英踩在腳下。 我們怕香港經受不起梁振英的搗亂，淪落成爲一個普通的內地城市。
更重要的是你都要走出來。因爲香港從來都不是少數部分人的。 香港，是幾代人努力建造出來的。現在要衝破籠牢，重建香港， 同樣需要你我一起行動。請立即行動：
劉慧卿 柯耀林 林少忠 林咏然
“One country, two systems” is turning from reality to myth. But honestly, I don’t know what can be done to change things. On the other hand, I think it’s important that the world understand what’s happening.
