South Horizons residents to stage sit-in againt outlet plan
(05-21 15:54)

The landlord of Marina Square West Center at South Horizons, Ap Lei Chau refused to renew contracts with some of the tenants.
People Power and residents in the estate including sitting legislator Fernando Cheung Chiu-hung decided to stage a protest on Friday, followed by a relay sit-in on Saturday until the landlord and the management firm respond to their requests.
But a local concern group along with the Civic Party claimed to begin the sit-in earlier on Friday in front of the shopping center, which could hamper the effort of the movement over the weekend.
The landlord of the shopping center, which hosted shops mostly for the local community, had refused to directly communicate with the residents in the estate.
