The Post asked participants at yesterday's 'blue ribbon' protest why the Central reclamation should be halted. 'The harbour is our natural resource. The government said this reclamation is good for us, but that's not true and they are not listening to our voices. I think it's a waste of money.' Judy Chan Kwong-ming, 19, student at Baptist University 'The government somehow thinks they're in charge of Guangzhou rather than Hong Kong - this is not mainland China where democracy is still being developed. This is Hong Kong. But they still have a government-knows-best mentality.' Karl Vezner, 63, retired college professor 'If we don't fight, then the harbour won't even be like a river, it will be a gutter. If the government is doning this for economic benefit, than they should just fill up the whole harbour. But the harbour is more important than the economy. It is unique.' Chan Yau-tak, 54, marketing manager 'Hong Kong used to be very pretty but now the landscape has changed. The water is contaminated. It's heartbreaking to see what's happening. There are going to be concrete blocks blocking all the breeze. It's awful. It really is awful.' Mary Chiang Yan-chee, 51, PR firm partner.
