Hong Kong, 1 July, 2012 Very big handover demonstration with possibly 400.000 demonstrators airing their grievances against the new Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying. This was the 15th year and one of the biggest. CY Leung was sworn in in the morning and is facing a huge number of problems: expensive housing, widening gap between rich and poor, Beijing interference etc. etc. De former colonial flag of Hong Kong was also shown. Zeer grote anti overheidsdemonstratie gedurende de 15 jaar handoverherdenking van Hong Kong naar China. De coloniale vlag van Hong Kong werd zelfs getoond en fotos van Maggie Thatcher als de verrader van Hong Kong. Photo Kees Metselaar.
