Hong Kong As It Is

Tsim Sha Tsui tonight

Tsim Sha Tsui tonight was in full action. A procession of 100 people was marching along Tsim Sha Tsui’s Canton Road, which is lined with luxury shops, towards the Star Ferry pier. They had marched from Mongkok, in protest against the corporate greed of the local property developers and against the government for collusion with them. From the Star Ferry pier, they would take ferry to Central to support the “Occupy Central” campaign stationed at the ground floor of HSBC headquarters.

As tomorrow is Halloween day, some protesters wore mockery masks and costumes, and others carried caricatures.

Not far from the pier, two stages were set up for outdoor concerts organized by the cultural arm of Taiwan Government’s Office in Hong Kong. One stage was set against the Victoria Harbour, beautiful.

Hong Kong rarely has free outdoor concerts. When there is one, it is funded by Taiwanese government. Isn’t it a mockery of Hong Kong Government?
