A 1.5m statue of Liu Xiaobo, the Nobel Peace Prize laureate who died

activists, led by Tsang Kin-shing of the League of Social
Democrats moved it to Paterson St in Causeway Bay on Tuesday,
ahead of the anniversary of Liu's death on 13 July.

The activists also called for the immediate release of Liu Xia,
his widow, who has been under illegal house arrest for many years.

Paddle Paddle Paddle

Intense competition runs between teams of paddlers at the Dragon
Boat Festival celebration in Tai O, Hong Kong's last fishing
village on Lantao Island on Monday.

Taking place on the 5th day of the 5th Lunar month, Duan Wu (Dragon
Boat) Festival traces its origins to Qu Yuan, a 3rd Century official
who was disillusioned with the corrupt government that he drowned
himself in the river in protest.

The locals rushed to the site, paddling on their boats and banging
drums and gongs to scare away anything that might harm Qu Yuan in
hopes to find and rescue him but they were unsuccesful. They also
brought offerings of rice dumplings to calm the old man's spirit.

Banyan Tree in Blake Garden

A massie old banyan tree in Blake Garden, Sheung Wan.
Banyan trees are easily recognisable for their spindly aerial
roots, which cast outwards in search of water and nutrition.
They are the most prominent forms of greenery in the hilliest
and most densely packed parts of Hong Kong.

Kacey Wong with 'June 4 Desk'

Hong Kong visual artist Kacey Wong visits his 'June 4 Desk' on
the 29th anniversary of the Tiananmen Massacre in Beijing of 1989,
at the June 4 Museum at Jockey Club Creative Art Centre (JCCAC).

Kacey's 'June 4 Desk', with the Chinese characters 8 times 9 equals
64 cut into the steel desktop simulating the multiplication table
children have to memorise, focuses on the set of sensitive numbers
and the eradication of this pro-democracy history in education.

The desk was originally part of Kacey's entry for the government-
sponsored 'Hi Hill' art installation at Tsuen Lung Village, with
chairs and desks marked by graffiti strewn across the classroom
recording titbits of school life. It was deemed too political and
had to be removed at the request of the curator.
