Awaiting a democratic Hong Kong
For the first time since 1989, Martin Lee and other veteran Democratic Activists are allowed into China. Our elected legislator, resident trouble maker, Leung Kwok Hung, as usual causes a bit of ruckus and pushes the boundaries.
Like him or hate him, he says and does what no other dares and often makes his point loud and clear. By shouting that one banned sentence, he highlights the difference between my city and the one in China. He may the the first guy not to go to jail in China for chanting "Long Live Democracy!" in the PRC in public for quite a while.
Veteran activist Leung Kwok-hung who predictably had a message of defiance for a nation he has only been allowed to visit once in 16 years.
"I will voice out for democracy," Leung said. "I will voice the feelings of the people"
Leung controversially sported a T-shirt bearing a slogan critical of Beijing's brutal crackdown on the Tiananmen pro-democracy movement in 1989.
"Long live democracy, long live the people," he chanted as public security officials looked on nervously.
Leung, known as "Long Hair" for his waist-length tresses, said he had been asked by a government official to change his shirt. "I told him to take it easy," Leung said.
