WE ARE NOT ___ Exhibition

From the Artists Statement:
"Political turmoil engulfed the city! The voices of the millions remained

movement, returns after vanishing on the Lion Rock last October!
Representing the wisdom, courage, and determination of the
citizens of Hong Kong, the symbolic statue will be installed at
OPENGROUND, from 21st May to 7th Jun.

We wish all you brothers and sisters to join us at the exhibition, and
to share our moments of the democratic movements as well as our
visions of a better Hong Kong. The exhibition is more than just an
art show, it is also the assembly for the voices unheard, and for
demonstrating our determination to liberate Hong Kong from the
hands of the tyranny. United we stand, together we fight!"

Storm Approaching - End of Hong Kong's "One Country Two System"?

Beijing announced plans to push through sweeping national security laws for Hong Kong at its
annual session of National People's Congress (NPC) today, in a move that critics say will
effectively end the territory's autonomy and the 'One Country, Two Systems.'

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang omits Basic Law from work report for first time since taking office in
2013 and said Beijing would establish a sound legal system and enforcement mechanism for
safeguarding national security in Hong Kong, meaning the State Security Department will
operate in Hong Kong.

'This is the end of Hong Kong. This is the end of One Country Two Systems,' said pro-democracy
legislator Dennis Kwok. 'Beijing, the Central People’s Government, has completely breached its
promise to the Hong Kong people ... They are completely walking back on their obligation.'

President Trump told reporters 'nobody knows yet' the details of China's plan. 'If it happens
we'll address that issue very strongly.'

Hang Seng Index crashed 5.74% by 1,349.25 points to 22,930 today, the largest drop in a day
in 5 years.

Sea of Flowers at Fung Lok Wai in Yuen Long

Every year from May to October, the Pontederia Crassipes blooms.
The fish pond in Fung Lok Wai, Yuen Long, has a sea of light purple
and blue flowers, which is very spectacular. They attract a large
number of trekkers and photographers to view and take pictures.

  The flowering period of the Pontederia Crassipes is short, and they
bloom and be gone within 24 hours. You may find the flowers in one
fish pond today, and may only be found in another tomorrow. Viewers
have to spend time looking for the current location of the blooms.

This aquatic flower is native to the Amazon River basin in South America.
Conservationists have a negative view of the sea of flowers. Although
this plant can absorb toxic substances in the water, it grows too fast
and can double within five days, monopolizing the nutrients in the
wetlands and destroying the ecological balance. The Hong Kong Bird
Watching Society has launched a Pontederia Crassipes removal activity
in the Long Yuen area to protect the ecology of precious bird habitats.

Tomb of Sun Yat-sen's Mother

The tomb of Sun Yat-sen's mother is located in Pak Fa Lam on the east side of
Kowloon Peak, facing Sai Kung Sea. It is said that in 1907, Sun Yat-sen, the
revolutionary, was wanted by the Qing government. His mother was forced
to live in refuge in Hong Kong under British rule at that time.

Due to her advanced age, she died at the age of 83 on 19 July 1910 and was
buried in the same year. Another version was that she was buried in 1911,
a hundred days before the revolution. It cannot be confirmed because
there is no detailed explanation at the tomb.

In July 1892, Sun Yat-sen graduated from the College of Medicine for Chinese,
Hong Kong (now known as the Medical College of the University of Hong Kong)
scoring the first place among the first batch of graduates. On 1 October 1911,
Sun started the revolution that overthrown the Qing Dynasty of the Manchu
Empire and founded the Republic of China. In April 1940, the National Government
honoured Sun Yat-sen as "the father of the Republic of China."

'Ghost Mansion' in Bustling Causeway Bay

Russell Street and Percival Street in Causeway Bay, located in a prime location in Hong
Kong, have repeatedly been selected as the most expensive streets in Hong Kong.
However, in a row of Chinese tenement buildings (Tong Lau) on Percival Street, the
upstairs units were vacant, the windows had been demolished and half of the walls
were removed. They look like abandoned buildings with a "ghost mansion" feel, a
great contrast compared with the crowded and bustling scene on the street level.

The reason behind this city's surreal spectacle is that many developers took advantage
of potential business opportunities about 7 years ago and began to acquire units of
the 3 Chinese tenement buildings that are over 50 years old at 54-76 Percival Street.
However, the asking prices of the street level shops are high and the acquisition has
not yet been completed. The process of urban acquisition, redevelopment and
renewal is long and winding.

According to the government's book of ancient and famous trees, this tree has a height
of 17 metres, a crown of 14 metres and a trunk diameter of more than 1 metre. It is the

Hei Tsz Wan near Sheung Yiu, Sai Kung is a totally abandoned village,
formerly occupied by a Wong Hakka clan. There are many abandoned
village houses, and this house can be seen with a plague vaguely written

height but the first floors are cramped, sleeping space only, with
hardly enough room to stand up. Some collapsing houses can
be seen along the path.

The Sheung Yiu Folk Museum nearby was the site of 8 former fortified
Hakka houses occupied by the Wong clan that dates back to the
late 19th century. It is now a small museum and a Declared
