  2. This development seems to have been in the pipeline for a while. Anti-discrimination laws are set to address the status of same-sex partnerships as having legal grounding, but not a move to legalise same-sex marriage. Also wording regarding citizenship seems to address the tension between Mainland Chinese and Hong Kong Chinese relations. This law will have to be enacted with parity and address misgivings and discrimination on both sides.

    Absent from the proposal is the recognition of religious discrimination, which has in many ways served as a proxy for racial discrimination. It is on this issue, that the louder noise of Hong Konger and Mainlander tensions serves to marginalise the peripheral position of ethnic minorities in the territory.

     
     
  3. More skateboard philanthropy. Hong Kong Board Rescue is asking people to donate old boards, wheels, and even bolts to help kids who can’t afford or get access to a board the chance to get skateboarding.

    This Saturday at Tseung Kwan O skatepark it will be Hong Kong’s ‘Go Skateboarding Day’ celebration. There people can also donate their old hardware.

    本星期六(6月28日)的香港滑板日於將軍澳滑板場內將設有舊滑板回收收集箱,
    請把你們用舊了的滑板或滑板配件帶到將軍澳滑板場捐贈給HK Board Rescue,
    我們會把滑板維修後轉贈給沒有能力購買滑板的朋友。
    現在我們有康民處管轄的免費極限運動場,但仍有人因各種原因而不能擁有自己的滑
    板,
    希望這一個小小的動作能帶給其他人玩滑板並非做壞事的訊息並能給他們玩滑板的機
    會。
