To combat more than 600 hygiene and street management blackspots in Hong Kong, the government launched the “Government’s Plan to Combat Hygiene Blackspots” yesterday. Deputy Secretary for Administration Cheuk Wing-hing, together with a number of relevant officials, inspected the health blackspots in many districts, stressing once again that the actions are not “big dragons and phoenixes” or a show. During Zhuo Yongxing’s inspection, he mentioned that he would prosecute those who posted “Quwang Advertisement” in the back alley. “Quwang” later said that he had been notified by the government that his street sign was illegal. As for the graffiti known for “Quwang Advertisement” Yan Zhaotang said, “There is nothing to worry about.”
The “Government’s Plan to Combat Hygiene Black Spots” is coordinated by the “District Matters Coordination Working Group”. The chairman of the working group, Mr Cheuk Wing-hing, and the Secretary for Environment and Ecology, Mr. Tse Chin-wan, and other officials yesterday inspected the back alley of Mong Kok and pointed to the “King of Canal” on the canal. The street sign said it was an illegal act, and also pointed out that it was “very ironic” that someone dumped garbage under the notice “It is strictly forbidden to take out garbage and send it to the officials for justice”, just like “earth breaking on the head of Tai Sui”, and the person involved must be severely punished. They then inspected the sanitation blackspot near San Wu Building in To Kwa Wan and found a large amount of rubbish and abandoned motorcycles. They also went to Sham Shui Po to inspect abandoned and tattered signboards.
Zhuo Yongxing pointed out that although the government has a duty to keep Hong Kong clean, if the government keeps cleaning and the citizens keep throwing it away, it will only keep reincarnating in the nightmare of “you clean me up, you clean me up”, a beautiful and clean Hong Kong may not be Appear. He asked back, “Hong Kong people don’t clean up the garbage in Hong Kong, who will clean it up for you?”
He denied that this action was a “big dragon and phoenix” or a “show”, and threatened that the government’s clean-up actions would follow. He pointed out that there are currently more than 300 CCTVs monitoring the situation in the back lanes, and he described the measures as very effective. He also pointed out that the fine of 1,500 yuan for littering has been maintained for 20 years, and there is a proposal to increase it to 10,000 yuan, but he said that he will study the rationality when considering the amendment, but the penalty must have a deterrent force.
“King Qu” graffiti as street art
The graffiti of “Tongqu King Advertisement” has been on the streets of Hong Kong for decades, and it has even been regarded as street art in recent years. Among them, the 75-year-old Tongqu master Yan Zhaotang (circle diagram) is widely known for his “Advertising Graffiti of the King of Qu” and even participated in art exhibitions. When he was inquired by this newspaper, he said that he had no knowledge of the incident and that no government personnel had contacted him for the time being. “I don’t know, I don’t know how to respond. There’s nothing to worry about.” He was notified by the government that his street recruiting was illegal. However, he said that he lived through channels, had no education, and did not know how to do other things.
