Poland was the first country to reject its ruling communist party through ballots on June 4th, 1989.

Participants in online discussion forums promptly suggested a revenge attack on Chungking Mansions where many ethnic minorities reside. Ethnic minority leaders Jeffrey and KK, born and bred in HK, decided to try to reverse the situation, with results beyond expectations. They described it as a new “we connect” page, of ethnic minorities being accepted as HK people.

      Going to a restaurant for a casual dinner, we look for “bang for the buck”. But after 5 months of the anti-extradition bill campaign, we now consider yellow or blue, even for a meal.
