Watched the following Fireworks documentary on Netflix about an artist from Quanzhou in China last evening.

Truly spectactular and well worth watching, even though part of me was reacting to the impact on the environment

The Hong Kong government listens to the people as well as any capitalist government. I was in Victoria on Feb 23 2002 and the BC Liberal response to tens of thousands in the streets protesting austerity was to tell reporters they were just a bunch of union thugs.

In our free society it was far easier to find out about protests in China from 20 years ago than it is to find links to news from Canada. I guess it is just the vagaries of the search engines' algorithms not state censorship so nothing to talk about there.
