Skyline dims as Hong Kong takes part in Earth Hour blackout… with a notable exception

Lights went out across Hong Kong on Saturday night for the 10th annual Earth Hour. Organisers, the World Wildlife Fund, said that millions of people from 178 countries and territories took part.

However, when buildings across the city’s glittering harbourfront dimmed their lights, there was a notable exception in the People’s Liberation Army garrison headquarters. Netizens noted that lights at the PLA building continued blazing.
