City-centre Market Derelict for 14 Years

Built in 1963, Tang Lung Chau Market, 19 Jardine's Bazaar, Causeway Bay, is at
the heart of the busiest shopping district in Hong Kong, 3 minutes walk from
the nearest MTR (subway) station. The first floor of the market was closed in
2010, but it has remained derelict for over 14 years. Only a few stores are
open on the ground floor with many used for storage only.

A NGO group applied to hold a short-term market there in 2021, but the authorities
refused saying it was closed. Wanchai District Councilor Peggy Lee Pik-yee
asked at a council meeting, saying that vacant markets were a waste of public
funds and hoped that the authorities would re-examine their use, to no avail.

Sparse Participation at July 1 Victoria Park Celebration Event

This is the fifth year where there is no more massive annual July 1st protest parade.
Victoria Park, where the parade used to be the starting point, is now a
venue for a celebration event for the 27th anniversary of Hong
Kong's return to China.

When this reporter went to Victoria Park the afternoon of July 1, there were no
queues of people entering or taking pictures. The Park looked almost
deserted, except for the workers present.

Where are all the patriots?

Deadpool Showcased for Hong Kong's Change of Sovereignty

A giant 8-metre-long Deadpool figure lies casually on the rooftop of Ocean
Terminal Deck against Hong Kong's iconic skyline, from now to August 31.
Does it reflect the current state of the city?

"Hong Kong is over," declared Stephen Roach, former Chairman of Morgan
Stanley Asia and an economist who has taught at Yale since 2012, in a
Financial Times article on 12 February 2024. It is ironic that the city chooses
to showcase Deadpool during the 27th anniversary of the change of
sovereignity from UK to China.
