The group opposes the plan to lease an area at the terminus to the mainland, and has vowed to fight it in Legco and to make sure the people of Hong Kong understand what's at stake. Hong Kong First lawmaker Claudia Mo is expected to join the concern group. She tells Annemarie Evans what they'll be doing.
