Hong Kong University completed its Residential Colleges on Lung Wah Street. The allocation of dormitory is a blatant discrimination against Hong Kong students. HKU have long been saying that they will resolve the problem of a shortage of dormitory space, but what the university has done is the complete opposite. The new residential colleges do not only reserve less dormitory space for local students in Hong Kong, the police even put students from China in a separate category, which means when it comes to allocating dormitory space, there are THREE categories: Hong Kong students, international students, and China students, with an aimed allocation ratio of 1:1:1. This is basically offering privilege to China students who should logically be grouped as “international students” (given that their parents do not pay tax to Hong Kong which is only fair that they are not eligible for the education that is funded by the Hong Kong SAR government at the same price as the local students). To make this worse, the university plans to reserve 50% of the dormitory space for post-graduate students: please bear in mind that 50% of post-graduate students in Hong Kong University are from China! HKU’s policies on dormitory allocation is complete and utterly biased and favours students from China and discriminate the local students!
It doesn’t end here! Hong Kong local students are NOT allowed to apply a space in this dormitory, but non-locals can.
Local university students in Hong Kong are clearly not the priorities to the local universities. Those who keep saying that those who are qualified to student their Masters and PhD, no matter where they come from should be allowed to study in Hong Kong. Hey, as far as I know, US and UK have policies to make sure that the locals get priorities – for example, international students have to secure better grades than the locals if they intend to study in the same university, international students have to pay substantially more tuition fees than the locals. This is not the same in Hong Kong!
One thing you need to know, students from China can stay in Hong Kong, after seven years, they can become Hong Kong citizens and get HKSAR passports yet still hold their China passports – people from any other countries can’t become HK citizens unless you go through the neutralisation process.
Sending the massive amount of immigrants isn’t quite enough. It’s not fast enough. By the time a “democratic election” is held (if China really want to prevent Occupy Central from happening, they’d better act quick), China needs to make sure that there will be a majority number of “Hong Kongers” who will “elect” the candidate they want to govern Hong Kong. Colonisation is already a nice way of describing what China’s doing to Hong Kong.
Playing the colonisation game, China’s the best! Look at Tibet! It’s in fact ethnic cleansing!
Only because we share similar complexion and hair colour with Chinese, doesn’t mean Hong Kongers are Chinese. Chinese always use this superficial and naive way of differentiating different races. In fact, they try to blur the difference between ethnicity and national, and often tell Hongkies off for not “agreeing” that we are Chinese. Well, again, they should really go tell Japanese and Korean that they are Chinese too!
Over and out!
