Occupy Park Island

Image
It seems that some Park Islanders have gotten behind the "Occupy Movement".
Various banners have been put up on Ma Wan, supported by our Councillor Justin Tseng.
Various residents have also hung up banners of support for the Hong Kong democracy movement in their homes.

Overall, Park Island remains a world away from the Occupy protests that are taking place on Hong Kong Island and Mongkok, although clearly as Hong Kong residents, everyone has a view on the current status of affairs in Hong Kong.

Apart from this Ma Wan Website there are some other new resources to share for information about Ma Wan / information about Park Island:

The is Ma Wan Online which provides a range of up to date information about Ma Wan and Park Island for residents, including the Ma Wan village. Well worth checking out and well done to the group of residents who are maintaining this site.

There is also a Ma Wan Online facebook page here: Ma Wan Facebook page.

Here is some pretty cool aerial film footage of Park Island and Ma Wan shot with a GoPro and a drone. 
I thought for a moment it might peep into my apartment but fortunately its not that invasive. Also has some pretty cool footage of the old village part of Ma Wan.
