HK protests education plan, calls it Chinese propagandaReuters . Hong Kong
Thousands of Hong Kong parents marched in the streets on Sunday in protest against a school curriculum plan they said was an attempt to brainwash students by extolling the achievements of the Chinese Communist party.
The controversy is the latest backlash against
perceived political influence from Beijing in the former British colony that returned to Chinese rule in 1997.
The furore focuses on a Hong Kong government-funded 34-page book titled ‘The China Model’ celebrating China’s single party Communist state as a unique political system under which its economy and society have flourished.
