SUMMARY :

Where Were Our Homes?

Residents in the three villages of Wang Chau stayed on for three years to fight for their homes. There are 124 families living in these three villages but only 8 of them received compensation for relocation. | Chan Siu Hing has been living in Wing Ning Tsuen and after that Fung Chi Tsuen. He used to live a peaceful and happy farming life after retirement. Although the notice of eviction and resettlement has been completed, what was unacceptable is the government's lack of consideration and humane treatment. Even when the future of his family looks bleak, Chan still remembers the fruit tree which he has been taking care of over the last few decades. | Wong Kin Man's family has been living in Wing Ning Tsuen for three generations. All the memories are still vivid for him. With land resumption approaching, Wong, his wife, and his nephew are the only ones left to watch over their home. Three years ago, when Wong received the notice of eviction, his dream of refurbishing their house was destroyed. | Among all the villagers, some chose to give up while others actively organise protest activities. | Tang Kwai Lin from Yeung Uk Sun Tsuen has been actively protesting. Following Chinese tradition, she collects remnants of clothings from villagers' and sewed them together to make a large piece of patchwork quilt known as the "quilt of a hundred families". It is used as a prop during protests to signify to the government about the loss of their homes. | Apart from actively protesting, villagers also work with NGOs to organize tours in Wang Chau in order to inform the public of the Wang Chau housing controversy. During the lunar New Year period, Wang Chau villagers poured their hearts out expressing their thoughts at the gathering. Is the conservation of local space after all too weak to counter with government's decision for economic development?
