The Hong Kong government is not doing enough to commemorate the centenary of the 1911 revolution, the great-grandson of Sun Yat-sen said yesterday. 'The government should try to do more. Dr Sun has a long history with Hong Kong, he was educated here, and Hong Kong was a base for the revolution. Hong Kong should celebrate that,' said Charles Wong Tsu-yew, whose mother Sun Sui-fang was the granddaughter of Sun Yat-sen. Wong, who is also the vice-chairman of the Dr Sun Yat-sen Foundation for Peace and Education, made the comments after attending a symposium on the 1911 revolution at the University of Hong Kong. When asked if Sun's wishes for democracy had come true, Wong said it had been achieved in Taiwan, and that Taiwan would be a role model for the future of the mainland. 'Giving people rights is a world trend. Political reform is inevitable and will happen in China. It is just a matter of time,' he said. Wong complained that most centenary events were organised by the community, not by government. 'The only thing I saw is the Museum of History exhibition. I have not heard of any other events organised by the government,' he said. Wong also said Hung Lau (the Red House) in Tuen Mun, where revolutionaries stored and experimented with firearms between 1901 and 1911, should be properly conserved. Wong said the government had done a lot to revive Sun's legacy, such as establishing the Sun Yat-sen Historical Trail and Sun Yat-sen Memorial Park. 'As part of Dr Sun's history in Hong Kong, Hung Lau should definitely be part of it,' he said. A government spokesman said they had organised a series of events commemorating the centenary, including an essay competition, seminars and exhibitions. At the symposium, Wong gave a speech on how Sun's vision for China had gradually become reality a century later. He said Sun accurately predicted the second world war and that Japan would invade China, and he was the first statesman to advocate economic co-operation as the key to world peace.
