Famous blogger on mainland Chinese political news, @yanghengjun, ran into a protest against the mainland Chinese official document on the practice [1] of “one country and two systems” in Hong Kong. As the document is called the White Paper, protesters dressed in white with white papers stuffed in their mouths, like Chinese ghosts:

It scares me! In the most crowded downtown area of Causeway Bay, I ran into a group of people dressed in white, strolling around with some white pigs. Their mouths were filled with white paper. It was evening and the streets were dark, the scene was quite terrifying… I walked near, it was an art performance against the “White Pig (Book)” [The pronunciation of "book" is similar to the word pig in Cantonese.], it is very creative and has left a deep impression on me!
