Hong Kong China Culture Clash

In this Aug. 20, 2011 photo, journalists shout slogans during a protest outside the police headquarters in Hong Kong against the heavy-handed security which they say restricted their reporting during the visit of a Chinese official. Hong Kong police ratcheted up security, blanketing the city with officers and tightening restrictions on press and protesters during a recent visit by China's vice premier. Such tactics might be normal procedure in mainland China, but not in freewheeling Hong Kong, where students, academics, politicians and journalists are fuming over the supertight security that they say restricted freedom of the press and speech and the right to protest.
