Just days before Hong Kong’s new school year begins, thousands of students and parents took the streets in an at times torrential downpour to protest what they said was a government effort to “brainwash” the city’s children. At issue is the government’s push for so-called “moral and national education,” which aims to promote a deeper sense of identification among local Hong Kong residents with mainland China. This new subject is shown to be bias towards the China Communist government and had been strongly opposed by Hong Kong citizen.
