Sham Shui Po is one of the oldest and largest districts in Hong Kong. Over the years, strong community bonds were established in the neighbourhood and hence, small shops remain there over decades — a 104-year old shop selling soy sauce, a pre-war shoe factory and the last traditional Chinese flower banners shop, etc. In 2004, the Urban Renewal Authority announced a number of redevelopment projects. These government renewal projects dramatically changed the lives of many people and weakened the social fabric of the community. Sham Shui Po was one of the affected districts. Ordinary people in Sham Shui Po united against the unreasonable development policy, to protect their community and their ways of life. This book highlights both their struggle and hope.
