Gau Wu, Shopping

The "shopping" movement is celebrated with a tasteful eco-friendly shopping bag. "Shopping" became a phenomena after police cleared democracy protesters from the Mongkok shopping district. The Chief Executive encouraged Hong Kong people to return to Mongkok and go shopping. The students returned to the district in their thousands to fulfil the Chief Executive's request - but not to shop, to continue their protest masquerading as "shoppers". "Gau wu" is also a protest at the increasing number of mainlanders coming to Hong Kong on shopping tours with frequent and increasingly antagonistic confrontations between Hong Kongers and mainlanders.
