Civic Party lawmaker, Alvin Yeung, has warned that the Hong Kong government could one day change the facts surrounding the Beijing massacre in 1989. He said if it can erase any mention of a “handover of sovereignty” in official wording, and that Hong Kong was not under British Crown rule in the past, there is nothing to stop it from lying about the bloody crackdown in Tiananmen Square in June 1989 either. Yeung also said the Hong Kong government appears to have started making changes to historical terms and accounts. He told Annemarie Evans all this was being done without any public consultation.

An alliance of environmental groups says the vast majority of the public want the government to protect the Nam Sang Wai bird watching site in Yuen Long, which has been affected by a series of fires recently. The groups said they carried out a survey of 1,000 people, and 80 percent support conservation of the site. More than half want to see officials invoke the land resumption ordinance, or arrange land swaps with owners in the area. A senior conservation officer at the Bird Watching Society, Woo Ming-chuan, spoke to Jim Gould.
