Why are the young people of Hong Kong angry and deeply unhappy?

Inside the still gleaming new-age Legislative Council complex in Tamar, built only eight years ago, the youngsters used the bright white walls to share their feelings with the world. In the dim light, words such as “dog officials”, “freedom” and “Hong Kong is not China – not yet” appeared almost instantaneously as they shook spray paint cans and scrawled out Chinese characters, interspersed with lines in English. It was July 1, the day to mark the 22nd anniversary of the city’s return to Chinese rule.
