    The city now has a "Prosecution Week" because of a growing tide of violence and "rioting" in Hong Kong has demonstrated a need to better educate Hong Kong residents on the city's laws.

    Do you think people aren't aware? Seems very strange to target political opponents.

    I get confused. A poster the other day said Hong Kong was democratic and had lots of ways for people to change government policy (they even quoted a government reply to Legco about people becoming angry due to the structure of governance). These tactics of intimidating opposition parties looks like the actions of a dictatorship - as I said confusing.

    Government is testing the waters to see if the public would like their money spent on building and running an electric bus company

    Public libraries in Hong Kong will prevent readers aged under 18 from borrowing a novel from a Taiwanese publisher by popular Japanese author Haruki Murakami after the book was classified as “indecent” by a legal panel. His books are popular for IB literature studies.

    Dr Lee Hoi-lam, a modern literature instructor at Polytechnic University, said the tribunal’s decision was “without rhyme or reason” as it had come half a year after the novel was first published.

    “In the book, sex is depicted for valid purposes, such as to reflect the main character’s emotional changes, instead of to arouse sexual pleasure among readers,” said Lee, who claimed to have read every novel by Murakami.

    Thanks for this, not read this one. My favourite author.
