Entry Description: In the eyes of foreigners, Hong Kong is a good place to live, but in reality most of the Hong Konger may not agree with this statement according to nowadays situation. Hong Kong is facing lots of political, social and economic conflicts, as a result there are a lot of pressures on Hong Konger today. The things is, we Hong Konger need to face the reality, know how to deal with it and to survive through the pressures, rather than avoiding it, is crucial. We should believe that when conflict is handled in a respectful, positive way, conflict provides an opportunity to growth. This set of 3 posters describe 3 major problems in Hong Kong. Politics - It's clear that the territory is now disharmonious and in a difficult state of governance. Since CY Leung is Hong Kong's leader, it's difficult to say things happening here has nothing to do with him, so he is always the target to blame for. Living - Hong Kong is regarded as one of the richest cities in the world; however, lurking beneath this prosperity is also extreme poverty. Hundreds of thousands of people still live in caged homes and wood-partitioned cubicles, while the unemployed, new-arrived families from China and children in poverty struggle for survival. Eduction - Hong Kong’s education system has been criticized for being extremely tough. This doesn’t necessarily take the children’s perspective who have complained of heavy school bags and having their play time taken away when sent to learn different things at such an early age.
