As the traditional July 1st pro-democracy march in Hong Kong comes near, organizers say this year over 150,000 people are anticipated to attend, even if police claim there were only 62,800.
The annual July 1st march, the day in which Hong Kong commemorates its return to Chinese rule, became tradition in 2003, when 500,000 people poured onto the streets to demand that a law on security indirect violation of civil rights be blocked.
This year there is also the desire to protest insufficient public aid to counter the economic crisis and criticism of Tsang.
From Tiananmen anniversary to the July 1st march, a big turnout of youth participation shows that economic growth must not cloud recognition of heritage and respect for the truth.
In China it is forbidden to even mention June 4th 1989, only in Hong Kong remembers every year the sacrifice of thousands of young students and workers killed because they had asked for greater democracy and less corruption.
Beijing has repeated that Tiananmen protests had to be squashed in order to ensure social stability and proceed with market reforms that made China one of the greatest economic powers in the world.
While EU reminded Donald Tsang, Chief Executive of Hong Kong that Patriotism is not solely the waving of the national flag or the pursuit of economic growth, but more importantly it must include t recognition of one's heritage and respect of the truth.
