I'm really looking forward on going to Tokyo or Japan in general this year! The poll looks to give me a bit understanding on what I could expect, thanks OP!

Alfonzo Wong, the writer of popular manga comic Old Master Q ("Loh Fu Jih" or Lao Fu Zi in Mandarin) did so in many of his strips. Contrary to popular opinion, not all Hong Kong Chinese were anti-communist before the handover and there were sporadic clashes between left and right wing supporters in the past but no one got arrested due to their personal beliefs or opinions. Nowadays people tend to keep hush for fear they really will get arrested for saying or writing such criticisms. Hong Kong is increasingly not the place for anti-CCP or anti-PRC Chinese to live anymore.

Right, Urban Peasant got my point. The freedom of expressing political opinions has been greatly narrowed. In fact, not many people are anti-Chinese Communist Party from the very beginning. They just want to keep away from them, not "anti". However, the ruling style, maybe related to some extreme Chinese Communists, that makes people feel that their tactics are unacceptable. Sometimes, people didn't do anything illegal but they still got arrested because of their political opinions. How can Hong Kong people imagine that it would happen in Hong Kong?
