Green light for high-speed rail link
Ho Wing Hong
Recently, there was a big news in Hong Kong. Hong Kong was chosen to be a part of the high-speed rail links. However, a lot of people were not satisfied with this. Thus, there was a parade to go against the decision of this because the place which was chosen to build the rail link is a village. There are a lot of people who will lose their living place if the high-speed rail link was built. Thus, many people including the villagers and some young people walked on the street and wanted the government to change their mind because it was unfair to them. However, it could not change. The government did not change their mind of building the rail link. Why can the government ignore them? Although development is important for the society, people are also important.
