Yesterday "Four-eyed Brother" Cheng Kam-mun published a Facebook post titled "The battle of the Hong Kong Public Library: spontaneously remove simplified character books from the shelves in order to resist brainwashing." Cheng said that the Leisure and Cultural Services Department had purchased 600,000 simplified characters, including many children books in praise of the Chinese Communist Party.
Because library space is finite, they also removed certain traditional character books to make room for the simplified character books.
Cheng said that this was brainwashing of the next generation.
Cheng called on citizens to spontaneously remove the simplified character books.
A police spokesman said they had received a report on Tuesday from the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, which operates public libraries in the city, that someone had removed books with simplified Chinese characters in a library and the act was recorded in an uploaded video clip.
It showed dozen of books with simplified Chinese characters being removed from shelves and dumped in a rubbish bin or hidden inside a fire hose compartment or gaps between bookshelves. He said in the message: The media recently reported that public libraries had bought 600,000 books in broken Chinese characters since 2006.
Many were childrens books which praised the Chinese Communist Party.
The prosecution will also submit as evidence a 75-second video posted by Cheng on social media, and 1 hour and 35 minutes of closed-circuit television footage from the library.A pre-trial review is scheduled for May 12.- Legislator Wong Kwok-hing said that Cheng Kam-mun is being selfish here.Just because Cheng didn't like simplified characters himself, he is depriving all other persons from reading those books."If you destroy these library books, you will be legally responsible and not Cheng Kam-mun."- I also remember the case when the rumor first surfaced that Yoshinoya was serving radiation-contaminated Fujishima rice.Yoshinoya clarified that the company uses rice from Heilongjiang province, China.
