Vice premier Li Keqiang of the State Council of the People's Republic of China visits HKU this morning for the HKU 100 Centenary Ceremony. This results in an extravagant police presence on the university campus and in the surrounding area. Hundreds of police officers are deployed and for what purpose? Not 1000, not 100, but 10 student protestors outside the KK Leung building voice their displeasure and chant slogans about June 4th and a curious "university spirit." Overall, a waste of police resources, taxpayer dollars and Hong Kong commuters' time and patience. The Communist Party has yet to realize that the HKU students are not like the students of June 4th, 1989; or perhaps the extravagance served only to stroke the VIPs egos.
