Cheng said that this was brainwashing of the next generation.
Cheng called on citizens to spontaneously remove the simplified character books.
Yesterday "Four-eyed Brother" Cheng Kam-mun published a Facebook post titled "The battle of the Hong Kong Public Library: spontaneously remove simplified character books from the shelves in order to resist brainwashing." Cheng said that the Leisure and Cultural Services Department had purchased 600,000 simplified characters, including many children books in praise of the Chinese Communist Party.
Because library space is finite, they also removed certain traditional character books to make room for the simplified character books.
There are nine prosecution witnesses, according to RTHK.
The prosecution will also submit as evidence a 75-second video posted by Cheng on social media, and 1 hour and 35 minutes of closed-circuit television footage from the library.
Here is a set of traditional character books that is much more so than any simplified character book: The Selected Works of Mao Zedong. - Cheng Kam-mun is confusing the message and the medium. You can publish The Selected Works of Wan Chin in simplified characters and Cheng would think that this will brainwash youngsters to become Communists.- Cheung Kam-mun and his friends are going to dump 600,000 books into the trash bins of the public libraries in Hong Kong.
If you have to stack 600,000 books, how tall is that? 600,000 books will be 600,000 x 1cm = 6,000 meters.
Primary and secondary education is mandatory for Hong Kong residents, but kindergarten is not.Immediately the localists aid that they would rather eat radiation-contaminated Fujishima rice than Heilongjiang rice.That was the perfect supporting proof for the WWII Japanese belief that they can always count on the Chinese to kill each other first.- Simplified character books are used for brainwashing?A police spokesman said they had received a report on Tuesday from the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, which operates public libraries in the city, that someone had removed books with simplified Chinese characters in a library and the act was recorded in an uploaded video clip.It showed dozen of books with simplified Chinese characters being removed from shelves and dumped in a rubbish bin or hidden inside a fire hose compartment or gaps between bookshelves. He said in the message: The media recently reported that public libraries had bought 600,000 books in broken Chinese characters since 2006.A pre-trial review is scheduled for May 12.- Legislator Wong Kwok-hing said that Cheng Kam-mun is being selfish here.Just because Cheng didn't like simplified characters himself, he is depriving all other persons from reading those books.Preference is given to non-Chinese speakers, students of alumni and siblings of students.ESF schools all have the same fee structure, which runs from HK,100 (with a ,000 deposit) per year for primary school to HK,250 (with a ,000 deposit) for secondary school."If you destroy these library books, you will be legally responsible and not Cheng Kam-mun."- I also remember the case when the rumor first surfaced that Yoshinoya was serving radiation-contaminated Fujishima rice.Yoshinoya clarified that the company uses rice from Heilongjiang province, China.
