  1. This is a brief snippet from the anti-national education protests last week. I think it is a really interesting to see these Pakistani girls get involved in the debate. It stresses the link between a local identity and inclusion in Chinese language education. What are the parameters of belonging in Hong Kong, and how do these translate to China?

    The placards that the two girls are holding read. 

    Left: I need Chinese education. Don’t need brainwashing education.

    Right: Want me to be patriotic but don’t teach me Chinese well.

    For more information on the large number of children that took part in this protest visit BadCanto.
