Young mainlanders visited an exhibition on the Tiananmen crackdown at City University yesterday in pursuit of the truth. The exhibition - which opened yesterday on the 24th anniversary of the death of reformist icon Hu Yaobang - was hosted by local activists from the Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements in China. They hoped the Kowloon Tong venue would attract more visitors, and expected more than 40,000 - more than 20 per cent of them mainlanders - to visit in the next three months.

City University should restore its old system of pay rises because a new performance-based review exercise barely helps employees cope with inflation and cannot be applied across the board, a poll shows.
