A rather odd, though ingenuous way to protest or insult the Leaders.China seizes 8,000 rolls of toilet paper printed with image of Hong Kong chief
Hong Kong Democratic party official says Chinese authorities took away rolls featuring image of Leung Chun-ying
Sit-down protest: rolls of toilet paper and tissue paper printed with images of Leung Chun-ying.
An official of the Hong Kong Democratic party says Chinese authorities have seized about 8,000 rolls of toilet paper printed with the image of the territory's pro-Beijing chief executive, Leung Chun-ying.
Lo Kin-hei, a vice-chairman of the liberal party, said on Saturday that police seized the toilet paper and another 20,000 packages of tissue paper from a factory in the Chinese city of Shenzhen where a friend of the party placed the order to obscure the party as the true buyer.
Lo said no reason was given for the seizure. He said the rolls were to be sold during Chinese New Year celebrations later this month.
The move comes after Beijing clamped down on recent pro-democracy demonstrations in Hong Kong that criticised Leung

One wonders if arrests have been made since China is not known to be charitable to dissenters. let alone those who openly insult their leaders.
