    Hong Kong students protest against 'brainwashing' classes

    Hong Kong: Hong Kong students and teachers protested on Tuesday for a sixth straight day against plans to introduce Chinese patriotism classes, as political tensions rise days ahead of legislative polls.

    Protesters at the government headquarters said they would not vote for parties that supported "national education", which they say is a bid to brainwash children with Chinese Communist Party propaganda.

    "I feel national education is an important issue because it could affect many generations of children's education," second year university student Cheung Nga-lam said at the demonstration, which began on Thursday.

    "The new Legislative Council members will definitely have an influence on the issue because whatever they say affects society."

    The former British colony goes to the polls on Sunday to elect a new 70-seat legislature, but power will continue to reside with the pro-Beijing executive appointed by Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying.

    Leung has ignored protesters' calls for a meeting and refused to abandon plans to implement the new education policy, which schools can adopt voluntarily from this week and will become compulsory by 2016.

    "We are willing to talk to the anti-national education parties, but the prerequisite of the dialogue cannot be either to withdraw or not to withdraw," Leung told reporters.

    Most schools have said they will not introduce the subject this year and want to see more details about how the subject should be taught.

    The government says the curriculum is important to foster a sense of national belonging and identity, amid rising anti-Beijing sentiment in the semi-autonomous southern city of seven million people.

    But critics say the lessons extol the virtues of one-party rule and gloss over events like the bloody Tiananmen crackdown on pro-democracy protesters in 1989, and the mass starvation and extrajudicial killings of Mao's Cultural Revolution.

    Hong Kong returned to Chinese rule in 1997 but maintains its own independent political and legal system which guarantees civil liberties not seen on the mainland.

    Perhaps, UK should (Putin style) annex Hong Kong in order to fulfill the wish, acknowledge and respect the self determination of the free people.

    many Hongkongese and taiwanese still miss their past glory age when their salary was dozens of times more than mainland Chinese. At that time, one KFG boy in HONGHONH earned more than The president of PRC.. but now……………compared with millions of Mainlander tourists to Hongkong,almost all hongkongese are losers............

    Well, the protester maybe laughable, but given the situation in HK now, he is having the last laugh.

    in US everyone was giving a standing ovation to Whitney Houston or Mariah Carey or whoever when they sang the Star Spangled Banner before every match in the stadium.

    only un-brainwashed Indians would refuse to sing Vande Mataram or to hoist their tricolor :D

    they live in a parallel world definitely.

    There are those who think Religion is above nationalism.

    Ask the Uighurs and the American Muslims.

    And there are those for whom Freedom is more important than all the Chinese nationalism claptrap being imposed on them by Communist.........like those in Hong Kong.

    Parallel worlds indeed!

    Ahoy Amoy! ;)

    Brainwashing, using doctored history, has always been the tool of fascists.... and the CCP is among the most fascist of rulers across the world. So, this is no wonder. But in a world of such open communication their efforts may not be as efficient as they used to be earlier ... unless they go back to the middle ages in terms of lock down and oppression.

    in contrast to those HK who fly Brtish flags & Queen's portrait :confused: this just shows why "national education" is necessary, if China does aspire to become a nation as great as America :thumb:

    Wanting Democracy in no way mens flying British flags and hanging the Queen's portrait.

    You are too steep and deeply conditioned by the Chinese Communist propaganda.

    Sorry to prick your balloon.. Indians have long dumped the British... now its the other way around, the British are trying to woo Indians.

    its good to hear from the farmhouse animals that Chinese are about being conditioned to an ideology.... hilarious!!!
