The report from AFP lefts out the truth of Hong Kong D&G protest.
The protest followed reports that a Dolce and Gabbana security guard had stopped a photographer taking pictures of its shopfront from the pavement outside.
The truth is that the security guard told a local Hong Kong photographer to “get lost” and only Mainland Chinese is allowed to take picture of Hong Kong D&G storefront.
The above picture is taken from Hong Kong Sharp Daily and its title reads “Mainland Chinese guests are allowed to take photos. Hongkonger get lost. D&G obviously bully Hongkonger”.
Therefore, the cause of the protest is more than just the rights of taking photograph in public area and it is about the discrimination of Hongkonger.
The following is a video taken from Hong Kong Apple Daily that analyzes the cause of the protest (English Subtitle by me).
Up to now (Jan 9th 2011), D&G still haven’t apologized. And here is the headline of today Apple Daily.
Report from Taiwan FTV. Since Taiwanese afraid that they would be like Hong Kong one day, especially Taiwan holds a presidential election this weekend, they reported this protest in quite a detail.
