Thousands Protest Controversial Huge Reclamation Plan

Thousands rally against Chief Executive's controversial proposal for 1,700 hectares
of reclaimed land at an estimated cost of up to HK$500 billion (US$63.8 billion).

and exhaust the entire fiscal reserve of Hong Kong plus being environmentally harmful.

Families with young children, senior citizens, young people and political
parties, are among protesters marching from Causeway Bay to the government
headquarters. Chief Executive Carrie Lam is also critised for ignoring the
government-appointed Task Force on Land Supply who had yet to present its
findings on a recently concluded public consultation exercise.

political 'red lines' by Beijing that could deny Hong Kong’s disaffected
young people from participating in official political establishment.
