For many years, the government promoted social communion but a chasm persisted between HK people and ethnic minorities. In mid-October, on the eve of the Kowloon March, the Civil Human Rights Front convener was assaulted. Live news broadcasts immediately alleged the assailants were South Asians. 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.
