Today, I passed through CityU and entered my alma mater to observe any damage after the protest in last week. I visited different place in campus especially in laboratory. I found two centres I didn’t know before and they were The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe PPP Specialist China Centre of Excellence and CityU Research Centre on One-Belt-One-Road. So that I took a photo for memory.
Why I worry about CityU situation? Because I read a newspaper on last Sunday and found that CityU might be the next protest location. When you saw PolyU situation, it was a nightmare!
I went to CityU through MTR but the exit was locked.
The whole Festival Walk was blocked!
The tunnel to go to CityU was also blocked.
Then I went to the Cheng Yick-Chi Building, the brand was damaged.
Two security specialists were monitored here. The President office was located in this building and was destroyed by violent person (thug).
Library was not opened.
The ATM of Bank of China inside the campus was destroyed.
Luckily, our laboratories were not damaged but only the glass door. I walked inside and checked that no any damage.
And then I visited the laboratory office and took a photo with my old friends Benz and Mr. Chan.
After that I went to the bridge between Campus and CityU student residence.
It was blocked and we need to register before pass it.
When I went back to Business School, I saw many Graffiti.
The switch and electronic control for each room was damaged.
EMBA Association Executive Classroom brand was broken.
At the end, I commented that “CityU Rebirth after the Disaster, Place was Protected.”
I would like to record the last Sunday local district council election. A long queue was observed in the morning.
It is the first time I need to queue so long. The anti-establishment reverberations from almost six months of street protests swept through polling stations across Hong Kong on Sunday, it was pity that protests' riot were won.
I hope all universities return to peace. Protest and students please don’t hurt your alma mater again!
