Citizens want fewer mainland tourists

August 22, 2012

Under a new policy announced last week, five other mainland cities relaxed the rules on people to those cities applying for single-entry permits to the SAR. The rule changes had angered Hongkongers already concerned by the impact of mainland visitors on the city's infrastructure and resources. Green Sense, an environmental activist group in Hong Kong, launched a petition in Mong Kok today urging passerbys to show dissent through their signatures. SCMP reporter Hedy Bok spoke to some of them to understand the reasons behind their anger.
