Hong Kong: Star ferry protest

The protest for preserving Star Ferry has been on going for two days. Protesters had occupied the ferry for stopping the demolition until the police cleared the scene today (Dec 13) afternoon. Inmediahk.net has the most detailed citizen report since last night: including 1. whole town chasing after Michael Sun (the government official) (zh); 2. a longest protesting day (zh); 3. police brutal clearing of the scene (zh).

Mo's notebook questions whether Donald Tsang's decision to demolish the Star ferry is in consistence with his claim that he is a genuine local Hong Konger (zh).

Seecheun hopes that the protest will be successful and become a milestone for the success of local civil society (zh) .
