On the rally, a Shatin District Councilor shared 2 stories surrounding the Chun Yeung Estate.
The first is a family of three, a single mother with 2 children, one of whom had ADHD. They had lived in a ramshackle subdivided flat for about 8 years, and finally found their way into the public rental housing. “Then they knew about Chun Yeung Estate,” the councilor said, incandescent with rage. “Why should the government make its citizens pay more for her own policy failures? How irresponsible!”
Another story is from a worker in the catering industry. “Tens of thousands of people work in the areas surrounding Chun Yeung Estate, many of which were either from the logistics industry or the food management industry,” the counselor explained. “He was extremely concerned that if any waste from the quarantine center were not treated properly, it would pollute nearby sewage treatment and even water sources, affecting the Food management factories nearby, with disastrous results to all of Hong Kong.”
