Tens of thousands of people yesterday gave the government the thumbs-down on its decision to award two instead of three free-to-air TV licenses.
Estimates of the turnout ranged from the police's peak estimate of 36,000 to the 120,000 claimed by netizens, though it was apparent from the groups gathered outside government headquarters that the right figure was somewhere in between.

Integrate Hong Kong Society and Support Family Reunion Petition For Immigration Approval Right, Return Autonomy Based on Just Principles to Hong Kong
Co-sign Statement October 6, 2013
Hong Kong faces severe lack of affordable housing. The middle-class cannot afford to buy; the grassroots must wait extensively in the increasingly long queue for public housing. Everyone is forced to pay exorbitant rent meanwhile. The problem lies in the government’s unequal distribution of land and housing resources in favor of the real estate lobby. It tries to manipulate the situation by divide and rule, pitting one distressed constituency in Hong Kong in need of housing against another and create unnecessary social divisions, like persuading urban population in need of housing to endorse the demolition of rural homes in order to build their own. The government claims the “shortage of land” to justify large-scale development projects and the real culprit is the real estate hegemony. But unfortunately, some people disregard this core problem behind the government's “blind rush to grab land,” take the government’s claim on face value, and attribute the problem to “too many new immigrants” coming in. They displace the blame onto new immigrants with One Way Permits through a malicious analogy: turning the “reduce waste at the source” slogan into their “reduce population at the source” slogan, implicitly comparing immigrants to waste matter. This imagined population problem is a way to divert attention from and downplay the problem of uneven distribution of land and housing resources. By so doing, they become de facto accomplices of the real estate hegemony and also reinforce the prejudice against new immigrants, aggravating social schism in Hong Kong.

Recently, the very high-profile protest by the youth reveals the difficulties faced by young people in general.
