Why Lung Mei Artificial Beach Project Goes Ahead?

Seahorses are at great risk of extinction. Who would have thought they could be found in Hong Kong? Let’s face it, the water quality in Hong Kong in general is pretty appalling.

Seahorses and many other marine lives were found in Lung Mei, Tai Po. The government, despite public outcry and protests, was determined to build an artificial beach there! The government even said that the conservation value of Lung Mei is very little!

This is all simply because the property developers have planned to create a resort centre at Lung Mei, where they’ve accumulated plots of land, and a beach is all they needed to complete their plan!

If you take a look at the District Council members of Tai Po, you’ll find out a bit more. They are not only from parties that are pro-government (pro-establishment), including Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong and Economic Synergy but also vice chairmen, Honorary Chairmen and Chairman of the New Territories Reality Association.

That’s why the District Council of Tai Po keeps banging about how important it is to destroy the natural habitat in Long Mei so that the property developers can benefit from it and claim that the oppositions are merely trouble makers.

Shame on those money hungry property companies and those who would betray the people of Hong Kong and the nature just to make a few quick dosh!

Hong Kong is being invaded by China. The people in power, who have families that are citizens of other countries (i.e. if Hong Kong falls apart they can easily immigrate to reunite with their families in a free country) and with no moral nor dignity, plus capable of betraying the people of Hong Kong with a smile, are trying their very best to make sure that they make a lot of money even if the price is the fall of Hong Kong.

This reminds me of Chris Patten, the last governor of Hong Kong prior to the 1997 handover, who said in his last policy address:

My anxiety is this, and I want to stress this point, with all the strength of my command. My anxiety is not that this community’s autonomy would be usurped by Peking, but that it could be given away bit by bit by some people in Hong Kong.
