Hong Kong: Protect University Beacon

The Chinese University of Hong Kong is planning to remove the beacon (a symbol of freedom of speech and intellectual exchange) temporarily to build an underground information center. However, there is no public consultation in the campus. At inmediahk.net (zh) eg9515 wrote a citizen report about the confrontation between the University Principal and the students and hoidick wrote a super detail report on the decision making process. Within one day, there are more than 1,400 signatures (from stake holders) against the university's decision (zh). And a facebook group with more than 3,800 members have been set up to protect the beacon.
