ACTIVISM – ‘They Can’t Kill Us All’: Protesters Unite for Press Freedom 3

Thousands gathered at government headquarters today after Ming Pao’s ex-editor Kevin Lau Chun-to was hospitalised following a hit-and-run ‘meat cleaver’ attack this week. Below are photos from the protest at Tamar site…

The H0ng Kong Journalist’s Association organised the rally weeks after Hong Kong’s press freedom rating was downgraded and a controversial Commercial Radio host was sacked without explanation.

PHOTOGRAPHY – The Semi-Abandoned Hakka Walled Village of Lai Chi Wo 5

Deep within Plover Cove country park in the north-eastern fringe of Hong Kong lies the semi-abandoned Hakka Walled Village of Lai Chi Wo 荔枝窩.

It is surrounded by forests, mangroves and remains home to many plants, trees and insects which are unique to the protected ‘GeoPark’ region.

Over 100 years ago, Lai Chi Wo remained a poor village. A Feng Shui expert recommended that a wall be built around the village to retain wealth and ward off bad luck.
